Ask HN: Friend looking for a few other people to build an Amazon clone

Hi everyone, My friend is hosting a 4 week group building session to code up an Amazon clone. He's ex-facebook and is looking to keep his skills sharp while looking for the next gig. Over four weeks, They’ll work with various technologies including reactjs and nodejs, so feel free to join them if you’re interested in the topic.

I’ve joined previous cohorts and found it motivating to complete projects with a group in the past, it’s especially useful when you get stuck. Plus, it’s free! If you’re interested, you’ll find the cohort here: https://buildfaast.com/#service under the name `Amazon Clone (Intermediate/Advanced)`

I did a double take ... are you talking about cloning that Seattle company that's been around for 27 years, has over a million employees and generates about $400B in revenue? Sure it might just look like a web store, but there's more to it than meets the eye.

Please explain!

They're building a clone that they will show to Jeff himself. The idea is to use the clone to completely overthrow not just Amazon but the world government.

It looks a lot like a disguised course that you're saying is 'free' where you get free labour to get this clone built?

Lol, is nothing taken as good in this world anymore?
