Web Design Certification, updated

Hi all,

I am completing the projects for the certification and now the curriculum changed. I am a bit concerned, my work is not finish yet, to get the certification, do I have to do start from again all the new exercises?

No the challenges/lessons do not matter for the certification.
Only the projects are needed for the certifications

It’s not that the curriculum changed its just that a new curriculum came(It was the beta responsive web design now responsive web design), you can still find the old curriculum if you scroll down the curriculum section(Legacy Responsive web design)

The projects will be submitted on freeCodeCamp instead of using a third party tool like CodePen. Other than that, it you should be all set to finish the projects.

The new Responsive Web Design curriculum content has been released.

FAQ:

  1. Can I complete the old content?
  • Yes. The old content is still available, and has been moved to the bottom of the curriculum map and 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.
