First week
Second week

1.2. Buddy system 🤝

For the first two weeks, the buddy system is on a daily basis. The teacher / on call dev is there to help, to explain, to teach.
After that, a rotating weekly system is put in place with a code-star on call guy. The idea is to not have to change of buddy every day to be able to know the context of the work in progress and to be influenced by every member of the team equally in terms of coding style, ways of doing, etc.
The on call guy is also the first PR reviewer.
The buddy system is there for the first 2 months (learning period)

1.3. Good first issues 👼

Specific cards are created for the occasion. Those cards must hold as max info as possible and should hold a specific learning goal.
