Overview ✏️

Microverse Level Up is a self-paced curriculum meant to get you familiarised with the basics of coding before moving on to the technical challenges in our application process.

Depending on your previous knowledge of the subjects at hand, Level Up will take you anywhere between 1 and 10 days of full-time work. The different levels are featured in order of complexity to increasingly help you improve your skills.

Before you start, please keep in mind that Level Up space is only available to 100 simultaneous users, so we suggest you plan accordingly to join.

Get Started 🏁

To start, we recommend you explore the Gather space and the various levels to get an idea of which level you should complete. Depending on your past experiences and current skills, you should choose a level that is challenging but not too difficult.

Organize Your Calendar 🗓

Once you have a clear idea of your starting point, use the time estimated for each section to break your work into time blocks. Ideally, you will want to have time blocks of 3 - 4 hours. This will enable you to perform "deep work" while ensuring you don't get burnt out.

Depending on your weekly schedule, you could set fixed time blocks (e.g., Monday through Thursday from 9 am to 11 am) that repeat weekly. Most calendar applications, like Google Calendar, have this feature. Alternatively, you could also set a reminder at the beginning of each week to customize your time blocks around your other commitments.

Join our Sessions with the Coordinators 🤝

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, and you can subscribe to the sessions calendar here.

Best Practices ⭐️

Ideally, you will assign to each time block a specific section(s) or topic(s) that you want to complete. That way, you have a clear goal that helps you stay accountable and motivated. If you finish your goal ahead of time, take a break! If you need more time, you can schedule another time block to complete those tasks.

Remember, the most important part about setting a schedule is committing to it!
