LimeAcademy is not a course like any other. It follows the self-paced learning approach but there is, however, a recommended set of milestones we’ve set to help you get a better sense of how your progress should look throughout your training Journey.
There is no homework in the traditional sense. Still, there is a project that you will need to develop within the training season timeframe. You have access to all the knowledge sources required to handle your project assignment successfully from day one. The training content is comprised mainly of reading materials and less visual content like videos and tutorials. Alongside that, you will have a dedicated personal mentor who will be by your side. He will be answering your questions, from general topics such as “OK, where do I start?” all the way to drill-down technical queries about your project.
The communication is async, which means that you can ask your questions anytime in the dedicated Discord channel, and a mentor will get back to you as soon as possible.
Plan to invest at least 10 hours a week. This way, you will ensure that you will have enough time to read the necessary materials and be on top of your project.
In the project planning phase, you need to start reading the necessary materials, plan how to proceed with your task and think about the high-level architecture of your solution. Confirm with your mentor that your development approach is in the right direction.
Also, from this point on, we suggest you start attending the Weekly Meetups with our mentors and the AMA sessions with different guest speakers.
We encourage you to do this because the guest speakers in our AMA sessions are top professionals who share beneficial insights, personal stories, and resources worth checking. Last but not least, they will answer all questions that you have for them.
The Weekly Meetups with the mentors will be an excellent place to get to know the other participants from the training cohort and ask the mentors numerous questions about either the training materials or your project.
Start executing your plan and the development of the project. You can keep up with your attendance at the AMA sessions and Weekly Meetups with the mentors in this phase. Don’t hesitate to contact your mentor – they’ve been in your shoes and are here to help you out.
We are still going strong with the AMA sessions and Weekly Meetups. The difference here is that this is the time to start wrapping up your project. Make sure everything is going according to plan and is working, and add final touches.
Upon graduation, you will gain cutting-edge skills and acquire career opportunities from our partners if you are interested in a career change.
Congratulations! You are part of the community now! Your learning journey, however, doesn’t end here. Since the blockchain space is constantly changing and evolving, after graduation, you will gain lifetime access to the LimeAcademy training materials, which will be updated and enriched regularly. You will also continue to receive invites to all future AMA sessions! 🙂
