Frequently Asked Questions
What is Node JS?
Do participants need to know how to code?
No! The camp is designed for beginner-to-intermediate coders. Anyone can start learning today and students get access to the full Node.js e-learning course on Skillquest that teaches everything they needs to know about Node.js.
A few hours doesn't seem like a lot of time, how are people building bots that fast?
We jump-start the process with a simple Node.js framework, an easy-to-launch web server, and helpful open-source libraries that professionals use to build features quickly.
What additional costs can I expect?
None. Building and maintaining a Discord server, bot, and Glitch server is completely FREE! Glitch (our web server provider) allows servers to run for free under certain circumstances, to encourage app development. If students want to develop their application to run full-time, Glitch is a low-cost server provider that will help launch it.
