Changes to Curriculum?

Hi All,

I last logged into freecodecamp last year (Aug 2021)… So finally decided to log back and complete my training Responsive Web Design which is known as "Legacy ". I near enough finished the first part 22/28. Should I continue or should I switch over to the new “New” Responsive Web Design course ?

If I continued with the previous course would I still gain a certificate ?

Advise and guidance welcomed…

Hi @leojilka

Well, If you nearly to finish keep going. But if you did not study this for a year, maybe it will help you start over the new Curriculum, also I think it is better than the old one.
Happy coding! And dont give up :hugs:

FAQ for new Responsive Web Design curriculum

  1. Can I complete the old content?
  • Yes. The old content is still available, and has been renamed to Responsive Web Design Legacy
  1. What will happen to my progress?
  • Nothing. Your past progress will still be available in the Responsive Web Design Legacy curricula
  1. Can I claim the old certificate?
  • The certifications are exactly the same. All you need to claim a certificate is to complete the 5 Certification Projects which are identical for both the Responsive Web Design and Responsive Web Design Legacy curricula
  1. Should I stop doing the legacy content, and just start over with the new content?
  • This is entirely up to you. Majority of the topics are the same - just taught in a different way. (See Project-Based Curricula)
  1. How do I use the new editor?
  • The new editor is as close to an external text editor as we wanted to get it. If the files for the challenge have been enabled, you can access the index.html and styles.css tabs which you should use for the respective code.
  • Two main differences between this editor and other online editors:
    • You need to link your styles.css file to your HTML (just like you would in real web-development), by adding the following line to the head of your HTML:
<link href="styles.css" />
    • You are encouraged to include the DOCTYPE, html, head and body tags for each project.
