Late last year, we launched the Wilco Quest Builder, enabling any developer to build their own hands-on, simulated challenges. The idea behind the quest builder was simple: transform personal skill-building experiences and institutional knowledge into engaging, educational content.

Since then, we’ve seen quests built by community members as well as commercial partners such as MongoDB and Twilio. The Quest Builder SDK itself underwent a few changes, streamlining the process and making it easier than ever to upskill at scale. 

But what about the skill of building a quest? It’s something our developers have, but most people don’t. You see where we’re going with this, right? Introducing Lets Build a Quest together!, our quest that’ll teach you to build quests using the Quest Builder SDK!

It’s not the only quest development tutorial we have for you. First, we have released thorough SDK documentation with a few examples. Then there’s the Wilco GitHub repo, where you’ll find all our existing quests and see how they’re built. And we’ve also Build Your Own Developer Training Quest.

But  Lets Build a Quest together!, by being a Wilco quest itself, goes beyond non-interactive material, not only showing you how to build a quest but showcasing why you should absolutely do so.
