What's the difference between the intermediate and advanced tracks?

Students in the advanced track have more experience building projects outside of classwork, and more technical knowledge. We expect these students to be better able to have a conversation about the relative benefits of technical choices and to debug their own problems without guidance. These students tend to be close to graduation (although they don't need to be).
Students in the intermediate track require more guidance when making technical or architecture choices, and need more help with debugging new problems. They tend to be college sophomores or juniors.
Both tracks have the same mentors, however we assign projects with a more clear-cut structure, and more online resources, to the intermediate track.
