Once you have filled the waitlist for neoG Camp 2022 Cohort, you must first start doing levelZero and become a mark15 to apply for levelOne and get admission in 2022 Camp if you are taking the beginner route.
This is a step-wise guide for you to follow to become a mark15. Use this along with your levelZero journey with us or if you have completed levelZero, please use it to add extra 6 points and make your portfolio a mark15 from markNine before submiting it for review.
Please Note: If you have 1-year plus work experience in web development or if you are a roc8.careers alumni on #teamtanay Discord, then you do not need to be a mark15 and do levelZero to get admission in levelOne (2022 Camp). Please directly apply for the admission interview if you have work experience through the "intermediate route" or directly get admission if you are a roc8 alumni through the "roc8 route".
Your application into levelOne will be considered only if you are a mark15. The assignments and markings are divided week-wise to help you keep your pace and not get overwhelmed if you are an absolute beginner.
All the best.😁
We have a 17k+ developers community at Discord who are always ready to solve your issues while you are learning to code with us. You can ask for help
But before you ask for help, please first try to debug your code yourself. Here is a guide to help you do that. This would enhance your understanding to a great extent.
Help is given at team Tanay whenever it is asked. :D
Following are the mark-wise distribution of levelZero, for your ease.
A CLI app that can quiz your friends on how well they know you. Use nodeJS. Use repl.it to host your app.
This should be similar to the app made in lessonOne of levelZero. During the live session, I made a quiz about myself (Tanay Pratap). You should make a quiz like that about yourself. Also, share it with your close friends and see if they really know you. 😉
Make a quiz on anything you're passionate about. Something which is fun to play and you can share within your social circle. Things like a TV Series, sports, movies etc. This is your assignment for lessonOne.
Your first website. Hosting your first site using Github plus Netlify integration. Your task here would be to put all your projects' source code on Github. Even the one you did on repl in lesson One.
My portfolio. During lessonThree, you will make your portfolio and put details on site with the projects page. You have to host your portfolio and put your projects there.
My blog. Adding blog page and blogs to your portfolio. Even dummy blogs are okay, as of now.
Minion Speak. Make a translation web app that will translate your sentences into Banana language.
Fun translation app Make a Yoda or Klingon or any other fun translation app. This is your assignment.
Know your emotions. First ReactJS app. This will interpret emojis. Put an emoji and it will tell what that means. We will make it during YouTube session.
GoodBooks. Make a ReactJS recommendation app similar to this book recommendation app.
Note: The 2, 3, 4 and assignment projects are to be customized by you. Don't copy/paste everything and make the same project. Add different emoji's and all. Make it yours!
You have completed the most difficult part of your levelZero journey.
Now you have to do a few practice-exercises and list those projects similarly on your projects-page with their source code.
fifth and sixth week
Exercises Now you know the basics on programming. You have to do these five simple exercises to practise and polish your knowledge.
Note : You can make these apps either using JS or ReactJS. Put the app and the source code of these on your portfolio similar to other apps (examples below).
Make a cash register
Tell your friends if their birthdates are lucky or not.
fun with triangles.
Tell your friends if their birthdates are palindrome.
Tell the user how much profit or loss he/she is making on a stock.
Blogs. Write 2 blogs and put them on the blog-page of your portfolio. It can be on technical or non-technical topics, you choose what you want to write on.
Note: The blogs must be 200 words at least and please do not plagiarize as this might lead to the cancellation of your submission for levelOne.
LinkedIn Profile. Having a linkedin profile is mandatory. Please make sure you have linked it in your portfolio.
Once you have done all these projects and have written your blog, first congratulate yourself. You were consistent and hardworking throughout.
You have come a long way in levelZero and you have learnt a lot.
If you have followed this guide and made projects, your portfolio is ready. Please self-acces your portfolio before submitting. Use this Portfolio Checklist to ensure that you are a mark15.
Once you are a mark15, you can now apply for the neoG Camp 2022 Cohort aka levelOne through the admission application. You will be informed about this soon.
Please Note: Anyone who has more than one year of web development work experience can directly apply for the admission interview, without doing levelZero and without being a mark15. Further, anyone who is a roc8.careers alumni can get admission in the Camp directly without giving interviews. If you are anyone who belongs to one of these criteria, you must fill the form accordingly.
Read more about the Admission process here.
If you do all these without watching the videos/live for levelZero, we are okay with that too. What matters is that you have a complete portfolio to apply to levelOne and have practised the concept well for the interview.
Don't submit without understanding, we have kept a manual interview round only to check that.
We will be checking your understanding of the code. Any random project and would ask you to explain the code, maybe ask for minor changes in the codebase on the call itself.
Understand that we are not against copying work. The idea is that while copying you need to understand it. The best way is that if you're stuck somewhere, see someone's work, but don't copy it, type it yourself, without seeing from your mind. Then it becomes yours.
We have a community of 100K+ programmers on social media. Please do share your projects and your wins with us. We are here to help, uplift and guide. Welcome to the community.
