We're excited to launch a new feature for the Career Paths - Groups!
When you enroll in a Career Path, you'll now be placed in a group with other learners who enrolled that week. At the beginning of the Path there will be a new informational that directs you to your new group, where you can meet fellow programmers and discover opportunities to do peer-to-peer learning. At different intervals in the Path, we'll have informationals that suggest the following activities: pair-programming, code review, and group projects. Each activity relates to an upcoming piece of content - code challenge, project, and more - to work on with a partner or group of people. We'll also provide you with the resources you need to get started and successfully work with someone else.
To access this group, log into your account and navigate to your Career Path. Click "Community Resources."
Frequently Asked Questions:
I'm already enrolled in a Career Path, do I have a group?
Everyone who is currently enrolled in either of these paths has automatically been placed in a group based on your enrollment date. All you need to do is click the link in the informationals inside the path to be connected with your group in the forums!
I see an error message when I follow the link to my group. What do I do?
This likely means you haven't set up your Forums account yet. To do so, sign into your Codecademy.com account and follow the Forums link. Click "Log In" in the top righthand corner.
Do I have to do these activities with my group?
While you'll first join your group on the forums, please join our other community spaces Discord, Codecademy Chapters, and Facebook to connect with other Codecademy learners and do group programming activities.
Do I need to do these activities?
These activities are completely optional and you do not need to complete them in order to complete the path. However, we highly encourage everyone to try at least one of the activities! You're also welcome to do these activities as often as you like;no need to wait for our suggestions.
