What steps do I need to take in order to apply for LimeAcademy?
Before you apply for LimeAcademy, it is essential to familiarize yourself with the training format of the program to assess your expected availability during the respective training season. Although it is self-paced, the program is not a lean-back-and-watch-tutorials kind of program. Instead, it’s designed to mimic the daily work routine of a blockchain dev by tasking you to work on a large hands-on project for the duration of the training season. To complete the project you’ll need to read through the available training materials and write code (almost) from scratch. A rough estimation of the expected time and effort required is at least 10 hours per week. Learn more about the training format here.
If the Training Journey appeals to you, let’s start with your Application Journey. Below you can familiarize yourself with the steps required to successfully enroll in LimeAcademy’s upcoming training season.
