And finally, this proud sticker on my laptop!

To be plain honest, there was a huge response to the FreeCodeCamp swag. We had people from all departments thronging in to get to know what FreeCodeCamp was about and how it could help them. We were overwhelmed by the demands of a local study group at NSEC for FreeCodeCamp which led us to the creation of FreeCodeCamp NSEC Study Group!

The Web team at NSEC while upgrading itself continuously is trying to push forward more and more students into the amazing world of computer science — through the easy path of web development!

Awaiting, Avenir 2019!
