Microverse is an online school that trains students worldwide to become professional software developers. As AI advances, it's essential to know when and how to use AI tools, and when to avoid them, and why. This article outlines the best practices and guidelines for using AI tools during your time at Microverse.

πŸ”΄ Don't let AI do the work for you

🚩 When applying to Microverse, it's essential not to rely on ChatGPT and similar AI tools to in any way modify, amplify, or otherwise falsely represent your current skills.

For example:

  • When asked to send a writing assignment as part of your Check-In Form, an AI-generated piece of content will not represent who you are or your skill levels in written English.

  • When solving the Coding Challenges. If you don't have the skills to solve the Coding Challenges without relying on AI, you are not ready to join the Program and you will do yourself a massive disservice by falsifying your abilities.

AI-generated content is considered plagiarism and can cause your application to be placed on hold or permanently rejected.
