the email you were waiting for..
neoG admissions are finally open. an opportunity you don't want to miss
Hi 👋🏻, this is Tanay. I work at Microsoft and teach neoG Camp, a boot camp that is held once a year.
You are receiving this email because you filled out your details into a form somewhere in the past six months, a waitlist form for neoG Camp's 2022 batch. If you didn't do that, or if you are not interested anymore. Feel free to unsubscribe by pressing the button below.
why are we late?
You filled the waitlist form maybe months back, and then you kept thinking, "Maybe I am rejected, maybe they are not accepting applications anymore. Maybe I was too late." I got DMs asking about these things, and none of this is true. We are late because we are a small team right now and the waitlist grew long. When we initially did neoG Camp we thought 300 would be a big number & then the waitlist went to 6000+ people. Thank you, for that. ❤️
So, we have to prepare ourselves to give everyone a fair chance and while this preparation was going on, we should have communicated. But we failed there. We thought, "We'll be ready in June and we'll send the email then." But we weren't ready. Then we thought the same in July and again in August and we kept pushing. So, we are to be blamed, we know we have made a mistake. We know we have kept you in anxiety. And, I'm sorry for that.
Lesson learnt: It's better to communicate that you're running late than thinking I'll show up just 15 minutes late and no one will notice.
what's the news?
The news is that admissions are finally open, and we are ready to process everyone. It doesn't mean that all 6000 people would get a seat in the camp. No, we can't do that but we want to give everyone a fair chance, a fair shot to the camp. I'm going to talk more about the limited seats, the first come first serve basis & how we are doing to it. We will keep corresponding through emails, and now that this blog cum newsletter is set up, I'll keep sending you these heart-to-heart letters. You can talk to me I can talk to you, and we'll keep doing this.
Coming back to the point in hand, admissions are open now. You can register yourself, signing the waitlist doesn't mean that you are into the camp, it just made us send you this letter. The next step is to go and sign up on the admission portal. Your signup signals us that you're still interested in joining the camp and that we should prepare for your arrival.
When you sign up on the admission portal and when you get in, you will see a mark15 checklist which you need to complete, and everything is mentioned there in the portal.
Start working on completing the checklist. Once the checklist is done submit it into the portal itself. The deadline for submitting your final portfolio is 30th September 2021. If I were you I would go now and register on the portal, and start working on the admission checklist. I am waiting for you and your final submission.
not a beginner?
We know that a lot of people are intermediate web developers, people who have been doing web development for one year, two years, three years, or more. But they can still benefit a ton from the camp because it covers a lot more. Similarly, roc8 alumni are interested too.
These two (non-beginners) have a different admission route. You will get all of those details on the admissions page.
Now, it's time to say goodbye. I promise I'll keep coming back more and more because we have tons to share with you. I'm working a lot on how or what the camp will be, and it will be better. It will be definitely better. So we'll talk about the admission process, we'll talk about the six-month camp, the camp has changed from four months to six months and we will talk about what are the surprises? What are the new things in next year's camp? I'm excited! I hope you are excited about next year's camp as well.
If you have any questions, put your questions in the comment. There is a comment icon you will see below, use that and put the questions in the comment. If it's public, we will answer it on priority. If you are shy, if you feel, "I don't want to put my question in public", then you can just reply to this email, and that would work too.
are we landing in your spam?
The last thing is if this email landed anywhere else then move it to Inbox and mark it important. Mark the email address as important because we will keep coming back, I will keep talking to you about the camp about what's happening, so that you are as excited as I am.
will you tell us?
If you are excited, do tweet about it today, and tag @neogcamp (#neog2022) we would love to hear what you're thinking about the portal, about admissions, about the camp 2022.
Thank you for all your love. Never expected a small team would get this much love and demand, but it's all because of YOU. We are here. Thank you, until next time ❤️.
