We require all students who wish to join the Bootcamp to send us a final project as a demonstration that they have covered the basics and that they are committed to the course.
Don't worry, the task is simple and we are here to guide you through it, step by step!
Once you have set up your account and verified your email address, you will be directed to this page upon log-in:
Click on the "
Create" button in the top left corner and search for the following template: HTML, CSS, JS. Enter your first and last name as the project title, and keep it public (default setting). Then click "
Great job! You're now able to write and run code on your browser. This will be enough for the pre-course task, but you will need to download different software during the Bootcamp.
The required project from students is a simple webpage built with HTML, CSS, and JS. Below is a screenshot of what your final page should look like (we use the red boxes to highlight different components for you, they are not part of the webpage).
- A profile picture (not necessarily yours) in a rounded border style.
- Your Name in an H1 heading.
- Job title, and Favorite Song in bolded text, with the content under them in a regular text.
- The favorite song content must be a link to a youtube video.
- A horizontal dividing line.
- A simple form with two inputs for numbers and a plus + symbol between them. You will also have to add the Calculate button after them and make sure it works! (see below)
- The background color for the whole page must be a light blue color.
Calculate Functionality: When a user clicks the button an alert message in a pop-up shows up with the message: “The answer of [ ] + [ ] is [ ]." The first two [ ] should be replaced by the numbers that the user has entered in the inputs. The alert message should look like this:
It is completely normal to get stuck sometimes. In fact, a big part of your job as a software engineer is to figure out how to solve problems. As a result, the ability to for resources is a skill every developer should have.

Congratulations on reaching the last step in your pre-course assessment! We are very excited to see your project and give you feedback.
We need to see both your webpage and your code in order to properly assess your work. You will need to submit two links to us [email protected]
To get the two links and give us access to your webpage and code, follow these steps:
- 1.Send us your webpage link, which you can find here:
2. Send us your code link by inviting us to view it by clicking on the Invite button in the top right corner and generating a link:
The email format should be as follows:

Message: Include both links as instructed above (link for webpage, link for code) in your message.
And that's it, you're all done! We'll be getting in touch with you within the next two weeks to let you know our feedback, and schedule interviews if you are successful.
