  7. Open a ticket at if you do not get a response in 24 hours.  You can also call us at 866 611 3604 
  8. All of the work you complete must be added to your GitHub profile. Each project should be an individual submission/github repo.  You will end up having 40-50 GitHub repositories under your name by the time you complete.  Make sure your code works as designed. Label your submissions based on the requirement or name of the project, not on assignment name.  I.E.   Instagram Clone .  IBG Support will be pulling your assignments and running them to make sure you are getting your work done.  You must supply your GitHub link in your completed assignments posts. 
  9. Create your own personal youtube page, and for each assignment do a small video explaining what you did and what your approach was.  Take some time to plan out what you will say.  Speak from the context of delivering a solution.  (a) Explain the problem (b) explain your solution (c) give an overview of what you built (d) explain any challenges you faced and how you got through them.
  10. You will complete all in-class assignments and send details on 
  11. You will submit your lecture notes within 10 minutes of live lecture completion.  Submission happens via piazza.  Just post your raw notes and submit.
  12. Be as professional as possible.  Any swearing/profanity will result in a warning. Further instances may result in suspension and removal from class.
  13. There are planted "roadblocks in your assignments". We want to see how you respond, allow you to choose a direction and deliver.  Feel free to ask questions to get feedback on your ideas.  You just need to be able to fully justify what direction you took.  There is a solution to every problem, some are just better than others! Be creative. 
  14. If you run into a blocker: Report immediately. Explain why it is a blocker and what steps you are going to try to get past it. Explain what other research you have done.  Do not just make a piazza post saying "I'm stuck please help"  do the research , explain the problem. 

How to submit your assignments

1. Make a post in PIAZZA showing screenshots of your code working.  Title format is 

<Your Name><Day><Assignment name>Completion. 

I.e.   Tammy_Smith_Day1_

Example Status Report:

Today: will try to get it built and completed
Tomorrow: will start on the database project, and go through youtube videos Blockers: no blockers



1. This is a journey, not a sprint. We are not forcing you to complete in a certain amount of time, but we are expecting you to stay actively engaged throughout the process.

4. Ask questions in the piazza daily. If you don’t get answers go find them yourself and

report them to the piazza.
5. Help others as much has you can.
6. Use StackOverflow and google to find technical answers and get assistance.
