About the Badges
Prove your abilities and knowledge through earning badges in each level of a number of categories! We have the ability to earn badges in the following levels:
You are getting your feet wet and gaining basic literacy in a skill category. You will use study materials to prove a basic knowledge of a skill. You will also be proving your ability in that skill through building a micro-project with a very specific and prescriptive set of requirements. As an alternative to building new projects, you may use previous work and a few other options to pass this level's badges. Expect 3-6hrs spent per apprentice badge.
You are actively applying your knowledge to produce quality code in new and creative ways. You are also demonstrating your knowledge of advanced concepts in your production code. As an alternative to project work, a developer can use previous project or production work to pass this level's badges. Expect 8-16hrs spent per Journeyman badge.
You have mastered the fundamental and advanced concepts of this skill and you are very skilled in its' application. You often mentor and teach others in this skill. You also often act in an architectural role in the webdev discipline, helping to define our work patterns and recommending helpful technologies and methodologies. This level expects that you will propose, produce, and teach a project on this skill area.
You have permission to spend up to 10% of your work time on training. This means 45 minutes per day or 4 hours a week, whichever works best for you. Please try to schedule and communicate this time in a way that minimizes the effect to your story council and other responsibilities.
About every two weeks, we hold a skills workshop, for about 2 hours. We have an instructor-led, interactive session to educate and get these badges passed off together
Build portfolio & project repos
You can build a portfolio to contain your skill projects, or make them separate Github repos. Through this program, you should have a good body of work to prove your skills with.
Once you've earned all the required badges in a level, you are granted a title:
- Apprentice: "Web Viking"
- Journeyman: "Web Ninja"
- Master: "
✨Web Unicorn ✨"
