How do you deal with students in the same cohort with different skill levels ?

All of our students come from a wide range of prior experience; technical and nontechnical. We see this as an advantage. It means you’ll have lots of opportunities to swap between helping someone understand something, and asking someone for help. Each project assigned is broken down into two segments 1) Mandatory 2) Advanced/Optional.

The goal is for ALL students to get through the mandatory. Once that is done, you can start helping others out and spreading your knowledge, and you can get started on the advanced tasks.
