Overview πŸ—ΊοΈ

Microverse Level Up is a self-paced curriculum designed to familiarize you with the basics of coding before moving on to the technical challenges in our application process. The different levels are ordered by complexity to help you improve your skills.

Depending on your prior knowledge of the subjects, Level Up may take you anywhere between 1 and 10 days of full-time work. Please note that Level Up space is restricted to 100 simultaneous users, so plan accordingly to join.

Get Started πŸƒπŸ½

We recommend exploring the Gather space and the various levels to determine which level you should start with. Choose a challenging but not too tricky level based on your past experiences and current skills.

Organize Your Calendar πŸ“…

Once you have a clear starting point, break your work into time blocks using the estimated time for each section. Ideally, aim for time blocks of 3-4 hours to enable "deep work" while avoiding burnout.

You can set fixed time blocks (e.g., Monday through Thursday from 9 am to 11 am) that repeat weekly or set a reminder at the beginning of each week to customize your time blocks around your other commitments. Calendar applications, like Google Calendar, have this feature.

Join Our Sessions with the Coordinator πŸ‘¬

Sign up for our sessions with coordinators to move through the Level Up curriculum with the support of peers and a Microverse student or alum. These sessions happen from Monday to Friday, at 2-5 pm UTC on Gather.Town. You may subscribe to the sessions calendar here.

Best Practices πŸ†

Assign specific sections or topics to each time block to have clear goals that hold you accountable and motivated. Take a break if you finish your goal ahead of time, or schedule another time block if you need more time.

Remember, committing to your schedule is essential to meeting your goal!
