3rd Years - How to get project approval

You need project approval from a peer and then you can start your project.


Steps for working with a Peer Project Checker

You need to present your project to a 2nd or 3rd year Codesmyths student. That student, your Peer Project Checker, will check your project and follow the steps below before you are approved.


Peer Project Checker needs to:

- Take your job seriously! You are approving someone's class project.

- Check that the slides are completely filled out (except for final slides)

- Check that each goal has at least 3 resources/tutorials

- Check that the project is explained clearly, so that you could create the project yourself.
- Send a summary of the project (written in your own words) to codesmyths@fcsuvt.org

Office Hour Forms Update

posted Oct 31, 2016, 12:25 PM by Roland Wilhelm

An update on those office hours forms:  we need you to list all the classes you would miss for every office hour.  We need to know this because we may have to switch students around if too many sign up for one office hour.  Let your classmates know!  And remember to bring them back on Monday, November 7.  Thanks!

Fill out those 2016-17 Codesmyths applications!

posted Sep 29, 2016, 7:32 AM by Roland Wilhelm

We had a great Codesmyths Kickoff Event today — 86 students came to the library!!  Sadly, we only have room for 10-12 new students in the class, so get those forms filled out and submitted by next week on Thursday (October 6, by the end of the day — applications received on Friday or later will not be considered)!  Remember to use your best writing skills — spelling, punctuation, complete sentences, and clear thoughts all count.


If you missed the kick-off event today, you can still apply.  The applications instructions and form can be found here:  www.codesmyths.org/home/signing-up  (you can also navigate to this by clicking "Signing Up" on the left side of the www.codesmyths.org web site — hint:  look at the left side now :-).


NOTE:  Codesmyths students who attended the class last year do not need to fill out the above application.  They do need to fill out the application that was emailed to them on September 13th for existing students.


Thank you very much.  Looking forward to seeing all the old and new students alike!

— Ms. Bertucci, Mr. Roland,  Ms. Tagliamonte
