Our expanded curriculum is now live on beta.freecodecamp.com and we need your help QA'ing it


I had an doubt.
I was working on FreeCodeCamp Old Cirriculum.
Now I am shifting to new.
Let us suppose I complete 2 of the 6 certificates before beta goes live .
And then the beta goes live. Will I be able to show those certificates or I have to copy paste the stuff on new live from old beta site?



Just started working through the Beta lessons. I think it is an idea to see an example of the Box Model when you start to talk about margins, padding, and borders. If you could put a link in the directions it will help the visual learner understand the exactly what properties they are modifying.

So far, looks good.


All progress on the beta is lost. So make sure to save all the required challenges/projects some where. It shouldn’t take too long to paste in the solutions to the required challenges and the links to the projects.


@QuincyLarson Thanks for your wonderful move and the hard work that you paid for creating such a wonderful non profit organisation to learn.



Do you have any information about this?


i must say, the new curriculum is great and i am excited to try it,thanks for doing everything Quincy and other contributors.


First of all, big thanks to all who’ve contributed to the formation of beta as it stands today. I am currently on the ‘Quality Assurance and Testing with Chai’ challenges within the ‘Information Security…’ section and wondering about any suggestions to keep the learning progression forward, as these appear unfinished. Skim over and skip to projects, learning as I go along with those? Or…

Update: found this https://thelazyelephant.io/free-code-camp-back-end-projects-mocha-and-chai/


Do we know what the time frame is for release of the new curriculum? I’ve just got started, with the old curriculum, but having done some of the beta challenges in the html there definitely have been quite a bit of changes.


Not trying to speak for any one intimately involved, but beta is far from polished. Definitely need us campers to step up and contribute in whatever capacity we can.

If I had to guess, based on the relative progress, I wouldn’t count on production by the end of the year but maybe I lit a fire :wink:


Any idea when will new curriculum go live?


@dhruvramdev & @tindrew - The best way to judge how close beta is to release is to watch the progress of the GitHub Issues. As @rudolphh pointed out, progress depends on campers contributing to those issues. Please keep in mind that Free Code Camp is built on volunteer effort and even beginners can help by addressing smaller issues. Some issues are as small as changing the wording of a challenge. If you’d like to help get beta out the door, run over and check out the contributing guide.


Thanks for your reply. I love beta testing, I’ve been beta testing video games for years. I already have a github account, my biggest hurdle is learning how to use it. I’ve gone through the basic guide, so I have a rudimentary idea of how it works. I started doing the beta curriculum concurrently with the main sites’. However I just ran into a “something went wrong, please try again later” loop and can’t seem to get past it on one of the basic html challenges. I’ll go see if anything has been submitted on it yet. I definitely want to help get it going.


The way I’ve found to get past those is to hit back in my browser and then forward again. Failing that, sometimes a refresh will do it for me. It isn’t something I got when I was doing the HTML sections a month or two ago, but I’m getting it frequently now with the Basic JavaScript exercises. Must’ve been something new that crept in. Occasionally there is one that just will not work no matter what, but those have been few and far between thus far. Anyway, hope this helps.


Thanks. I tried that a few times ( also closed and reopened the browser) but that didn’t work. I wound up logging out of the site and then back in, and for some reason that fixed it for me. So far after doing that I haven’t ran into any more yet. fingers crossed.


Hi ,

I don’t see “Advanced Algorithm Scripting” listed in the map. Has this been dropped?


In the beta they’ve been moved to the coding interview and take home assignments section.


I can’t seem to get any information on Projects in the beta. The YouTube videos for the projects are not loading. I see issue #12753 https://github.com/freeCodeCamp/freeCodeCamp/issues/12753 on GitHub addressing this in January. The post says it was replacing videos with static images, but there’s no image instructions either just a dead YouTube video.

Any ideas on how I can continue with projects? Should I move to non-beta projects instead?



Regarding tests I have the feeling that they are too strict. The point is not to copy their example but in the end that is exactly what Im doing just with different content.
For example the image should be centered within its parents element. But what if I want to put the image on the left side and some text on the right of it? Wouldnt that be a valid way of designing my tribute page?
And why do I have to name my first element’s ID “main”? Why can’t I name it something else?


Yah I noticed that too… I think the links to the example projects are usually still good and then the tests give you an idea of what they expect you to build. I’ve only played around with a few without the videos but I recall the videos were very cursory about logging into the tool and setting up and nothing really about actually solving it.

Maybe scour YouTube for example solutions?


I’m about halfway through the Front End Developer section (working on basic javascript algorithms at the moment) and I’m wondering if I should switch over to the Beta version. I feel like the updated curriculum would be beneficial for me, but not sure if it’d be worth jumping ship or waiting til it’s out of Beta. Thanks!
