LimeAcademy is an intensive, nine week Bootcamp that will help you become a Web3 developer. During the training, you will have a personal mentor who will help you learn and understand the concepts of blockchain development and will guide you in building your final project.
In this article, we’ve compiled a list of 5 tips to maximize your experience during the Bootcamp and increase your chances of successfully completing it.
Plan your time
To get the most out of the program, we suggest planning your time and allocating enough hours to learn and practice throughout the 9 weeks. The training is part-time but intensive as it covers a lot of essential information. It’s up to you to find the best time to be productive, study, and keep up with the project. We’ve set weekly milestones you will need to cover so we suggest organizing your time in a similar way in order to stay on track.
Join the Weekly Meetups
Throughout the training, online weekly meetups take place with all participants and some of the mentors where you share your progress and findings, and connect with your peers. It is a fantastic opportunity for peer learning, bouncing ideas for your project and gaining clarity on the aspects you find challenging throughout the training.
Participate in the AMA Sessions
Several times throughout the Bootcamp, LimeAcademy is hosting AMA sessions with people from the Web3 space. Joining these meetings gives you a chance to connect with the guest speakers,ask questions and learn about the industry you are about to become part of. We invite top professionals from the Web3 space to share their knowledge and experience. Our speakers are keen on answering all your burning questions and are attending the sessions to be of your help, so take advantage and learn as much as you can.
Connect with your mentor
The Bootcamp provides a personal mentor to help and support you during the course. It’s worth noting that our mentors have experience working on more than 150 Web3 projects, such as LeagueDAO, MantraDAO, Tally, AllianceBlock, Steeltrace, Propy, Mindzilla, imvu, Healthbase, Status, Idoneus, P&G, FiatDAO. They’ve also worked on projects with notable Web3 players like:
- Cudos – a decentralized cloud computing service

- Universe.xyz (Polymorphs & Lobby Lobsters) – innovative NFT collections use a novel morphing mechanism that enables users to change the appearance of their NFTs.
The mentors are driven by their passion for sharing knowledge and helping other developers transition to the blockchain field. Take advantage of the unique opportunity to learn directly from them.
