NOTE: Hello everyone! Thanks to all who applied! We are closing applications for the February cohorts now. If you commented on this thread before this message you are definitely still free to send an email if you haven’t already.
For those that saw this a little too late - don’t worry! We will be putting a call for the March cohorts in about 3-4 weeks so keep your eyes out.
Hello ambitious learners!
Campers have sent emails to join a cohort, so here we opening them up again .
What is the cohort all about?
We’re like a web-dev gym that helps campers learn more, feel less frustrated/overwhelmed and ultimately: to help with getting a job. Mainly, the cohort is a collection of smaller groups of people who share the same goals. You’ll be in a group with people all over the world working on FCC together, as well as get some experience working on group projects, pair programming and a new thing we’re trying out is having accountability buddies. Friendships, level-ups and hijinks ensue. Some motivation for when you burnout as well. You can find out more about the cohorts here: https://tropicalchancer.github.io/projectus/
We’ve also got some study-groups for the YDKJS books and @P1xt Guides. It’s hard to tell at any given moment, but we’ve currently got somewhere between 5-10 ongoing larger projects on the go. A few of our past projects: a Coding Scavenger/Puzzle Hunt (warning it’s a bit hard): https://chuzzlehunt.herokuapp.com, Pear - Tinder for Projects(ongoing): https://github.com/mmhansen/pear, and for fun, a New Years video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQ82dreEaXU. Also, here’s a project a member was inspired to create after a group project: Duma - Word of the Day app (by @l-emi) : https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/duma/mamoofifhahehmokjnkpdkoojkcliimc
To apply, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and/or comment here by February 12th. The cohort will begin February 17th.
Note: To ensure quality we will be making 2 new cohorts and only accepting 45 for each this time.
