    I also had a question around prerequisites. Where it says you must earn at least 250 points on FCC - does this refer to each bullet point on the certifications - e.g. Basic HTML has 28 bullet point tasks - is that 28 towards the 250? Thank you!

    @jessica0000 This question was asked at the last meetup so I can help out. You are supposed to ignore the 250 points, and just complete all of the courses they mention (listed in the image above). They add up to 270 currently but that can change as FreeCodeCamp make edits.

    Hi @FinnPegler @yvonne-liu does this mean that unless my 250 points are not in all of those "recommended" modules that my application will not be considered? I have 250 points and have done all of the recommended modules except 2 (basic algorithm scripting and basic data structures). If this is the case I think the website needs to be updated because currently those modules are listed as "recommended" rather than mandatory!

    Reminder to @/all that we have a meetup tonight at Space4! You're encouraged to pair up, work on any part of the prerequisite, and ask us any questions you'd like!

    You can find us at 113-115 Fonthill Road, N4 3HH. Please buzz for Founders and Coders and please help us by not coming before 18:00 at the earliest. The meetup will run from 18:30 - 20:30.

    @mikailbadoula I'm happy to make the language on the website more explicit, but the intentional was more "start with these modules and then do other modules and continue your learning"
    I would suggest you complete the two sections as they will help solidify your learnings :blush:

    We've decided to close the spring 2020 application deadline to 23:59 GMT on January 2, 2020. It just felt a little mean to close it on New Year's Eve :blush:

    Hey guys, apologies if this has been posted before:
    For our webpage, what's the minimum screen width that we should make it responsive to? Would 350px be as small as we need?
    Jack
    @jackherizsmith
    @jrd656 hey! Looking here https://www.toptal.com/designers/responsive/responsive-design-best-practices suggests the lowest (and most common) width is 360px, so that looks like a healthy minimum to work to wrt responsiveness. Thanks for prompting me to look up some best practice guides :)
    @jrd656 this is the other guide I found helpful https://www.impactbnd.com/blog/responsive-design-best-practices
    jrd656
    @jrd656
    Oh that's really informative @jackherizsmith , thanks! I'd done a bit of Googling, but it all seemed pretty subjective. I'll stick to 350/360 for now and hope I remember to check at the next Q&A :-)

    Hey all, I'm applying to a coding course as well as trying to teach it to myself currently. Would love to hear any tips you guys might have!
    Jack
    @jackherizsmith
    @melissafrat free code camp is great, especially for HTML & CSS, and once you start getting your head round Javascript Udemy has some brilliant courses, and I didn't know about CodeWars until recently - it's a brilliant way to learn because you see how others do it. Which could be in a more advanced way, or a more lateral thinking way.

    Hi All, My name is Madhu and I am a HTML/CSS developer. I want to learn javascript and I have applied for spring cohort. I hope to join you all in next cohort.
    Hi, I wanted to know is there a class on 16th December about HOSTING ON GITHUB PAGES?
    Jack
    @jackherizsmith
    Hey @martinagabrielli I think once you've signed up and gone through the expression of interest form (set up GitHub repository etc, and following the guide is straightforward) then you're set for Spring. The deadline is January 2, by which time you need to have completed the prerequisites (completing free courses on FreeCodeCamp and CodeWars) and submitting a personal website with some parameters. It's all set out here.
    Martina Gabrielli
    @martinagabrielli
    @jackherizsmith great to hear this! I'm gonna look into that now.
