We are making some changes to the work we require you to finish before applying to our programme. You can see the full updated requirements on our Apply page.
Don’t worry if you’ve already started working on your requirements for the Spring 2021 cohort. The changes mostly remove work, so we’re not adding new stuff you’ll have to spend time on. If you have already done some work that’s no longer required that’s ok too. We see our application process as a great first step to becoming a developer—none of this work is wasted.
The freeCodeCamp requirements are unchanged. We still think this is a good place to start your journey into web development. We’d recommend working through most of this before starting on the other requirements.
We no longer require you to achieve 5kyu on Codewars. Instead we ask you to complete our list of pre-selected challenges to demonstrate that you are ready for our full-time programme.
That’s not to say that you should only do the challenges on our list. Everyone is different, but you’ll probably want to get some extra practice as you learn. We leave the choice of where to get this practice up to you. It could be more Codewars kata or it could be something else entirely if you find other applications more interesting.
