The number beside your picture on Free Code Camp tells you how many Brownie Points you have.
There are two ways you can get Brownie Points:
- Complete challenges - you get one point per challenge you complete
- Help other campers in chat - each time you help another camper and they thank you (by typing “thanks @yourname”), you will get a point
Brownie Points help you look like the kind of person who codes a lot, shares relevant links, and helps people.
They also add to your Streak.
