- An amazing school for remote software developers- 12/6/2019Kingsley Omotayo • Software Engineer • Graduate • Course: Software Development Program • Campus: Online • Verified via LinkedIn
The best thing to happen to me in 2019 was joining microverse because it completely changed my life by giving me the tools I needed to get my dream job as a remote software engineer in a fully remote company. The staff of Microverse are so helpful and are genuinely interested in your personal growth as a software developer and person.
- A Microverse ad on Facebook appeared in front of me at the right moment. The message they had was "you don't pay anything until you get a job that pays you $1,000 USD or more.” That is a huge plus for people that don’t have the resources, but have the desire to study.
Also, the fact that Microverse helps you to find a remote job as a software developer after the training is a huge plus. Now, we have 2 points in favor of Microverse.
The difficulty to find a good job in a small city encouraged me to join Microverse, as one of my goals is to enter in the software development world to learn how this works from inside a real software company.
After 5 months, I define Microverse as a place where you can find people with interests similar to yours, that are willing to help you anytime you ask for help, and a place where you will learn to code as a pro.
Another feature is the pair programming, where you will practice your English, learn to explain your ideas and code, and understand other people's code and ideas. Also, you will learn more about time zones.
But if this is not enough, there are also TSEs (technical support engineers) that review your code and give you feedback to improve your code and projects.
- I'm so close to my dream job.- 11/13/2019Yunus Emre AYBEY • Student • Course: Software Development Program • Campus: Online • Verified via LinkedInWhen I learned about Microverse for the first time, I couldn't believe it. "Do not pay until you get a job" seemed too good to be true, but I suppose that's how a school commits itself to its students.Still, I wondered if I could learn to code through the program, so I was excited when I was accepted.In 3 months, I learned more than in 4 years studying computer engineering at my college. And now that I am about to finish the technical curriculum, I'm confident about my ability to work with Microverse to get my first job as a software developer.Additionally, I feel like Microverse is my family. They really care about you, listen to your problems, and help you to overcome them.Also, they don't stop. Microverse continues adding staff to the curriculum team, and I can tell the program is improving every day.I'm from Turkey. Believe me when I say Microverse is not selling a dream from thousands of miles away. They are making them real.
- Peer to Peer Learning At Its Finest- 11/13/2019Ryan Vergara • Software Engineer • Student • Course: Software Development Program • Campus: Online • Verified via LinkedIn
What attracted me initially to Microverse's full-time program was the pair coding scheme. I had never collaborated with anyone in building software prior to joining Microverse. I wanted to learn how to build scalable software so I needed to be able to work with others in complex projects. After months in the program, I got more than what I wanted.
Every single day, for at least 8 hours, I and my coding partner worked on coding challenges and then built complex apps. We also spent time discussing concepts (debated, researched, experimented). Those daily grinds strengthened our engineer muscles and made us ready for war.
When the time was ripe, we were also assigned newer students to mentor as well as perform code reviews. These two tasks developed in us the leadership capability necessary to become senior developers. While one might argue that becoming a senior engineer is mostly about high technical IQ, I would counter that 5 highly motivated junior engineers led by a good senior engineer would build better apps than one rockstar senior engineer.
I am now in the Career-preparation stage of the program. I have been assigned a dedicated career coach who has been amazing. Every step into building my online presence (LinkedIn, Resume, Portfolio, even how I introduce myself) she has been guiding me.
Above all those great stuff the biggest value I got by enroling to Microverse is the friendships I have build over the months. I now have new friends from all over the world - Asia, North and South America, Africa and Europe. With this, I would even consider Microverse as a Social Network - but one that makes one build a network deeper than clicking a "Connect" or "Add Friend" button.
The only requirement to succeed in Microverse's full-time program is the willingness to invest time. The returns are more than a thousand percent compounded!
- Code your way to your best self with Microverse- 11/12/2019Elizabeth Villalejos • Fullstack web developer • Student • Course: Software Development Program • Campus: Online • Verified via GitHub
Microverse came into my life at a strange time where I was in a crossroad about where should I "steer the wheel" on my life. I had recently finished up a second degree, been applying for all kinds of jobs with little to no luck due to living in a small city where good paying jobs are scarce and my availability had been cut short significantly due to taking care of a loved one who was in the hospital.
During my sister's hospital time I re-discovered coding. I had always wanted to give it a shot, but never felt like I was good enough to make it work. Started picking up lessons here and there, then came along a Microverse ad. I was sure I wanted to go deep into this and Microverse gave me the perfect opportunity. It specializes in remote jobs so that was perfect for me as I was sure I could not leave my family at this time.
Microverse lets you build your knowledge, practice your english and people skills and build a strong sense of confidence at the same time. Learning in a supportive community where everyone is willing to help and strive for each other's success is something that I don't think you find anywhere. I'm grateful I took the plunge on this.
After finishing main projects curriculum, they also prep you for interviews, help you polish your portfolio, help along with the job negotiation and lay down all the resources they have to make sure you succeed. 100/100 would recommend. I'm even trying to get my sister on board so you know it's the real deal.
Bonus: it's free until you get a job, all you have to do is put some effort and work into it and you're all set.
- I truly treasure my time at Microverse- 11/12/2019Leonard Kanyesigye • Student • Course: Software Development Program • Campus: Online • Verified via LinkedInI got to know about Microverse at the perfect moment in my life. I had basic knowledge about programming, but I wanted to be even better so I could get a job in the field.I had bought 4 or 5 courses on Udemy to learn how to program, but procrastination and other distractions made me feel like I would never learn.Quitting my job as a sales personnel to join the full-time program at Microverse has been the best decision I have made this year (2019). I have learned a lot of technical skills and improved many of my soft skills.Now, whenever I feel like I'm procrastinating, I remember that I have a partner and several other students counting on me. That has helped me tremendously in my learning. I can't wait to get my first job.

I'm graduated from Engineer of computer Systems with specialty in Software Engineer in Mexico, before i enter to microverse and spend a lot of time searching actively for a software engineer position. But in my city is not the best option from do that.
Thanks to microverse i learned a lot about real world projects with the web development program, and i think the best way to learn to code eficently is with pair program.
Microverse have a lot of benefits to join and one of the best is the stipend to mexican students !!, if you can learn witouth worries from simple things like familiar support, you can aproach it and focus on your coding projects.
I'll recomende microverse if you want to be a remote software developer with best practices and a fluent english !!
- I recommend Microverse to anyone who wants to learn how to develop software professionally, efficiently, and in a pleasant environment :)- 11/11/2019Thaís V. • Full-Stack Developer • Student • Course: Software Development Program • Campus: Online • Verified via LinkedInI decided to join Microverse mainly due to:1- The methodology and how it's focused on professional development through the execution of real projects that can be used in a portfolio;2- The opportunity to immerse yourself in English and improve your communication skills;3- The possibility to only pay after getting a job in the technology sector;4- The professional assistance from experienced recruiters to guide me through applying to jobs and interviews;5- The self-paced nature which gives me the time to learn the concepts that are more complex without nonsense pressure.What surprised me at Microverse:1- Their incredible team;2- How quickly Microverse improves its methodology;3- The company's network of hiring partners that is continuously expanding to help more students enter the technology market, faster;4- Their ability to confidential help and support you with any conflict resolution.
- My heartfelt recommendation- 11/11/2019James Okunlade • React.js/Rails SWE • Graduate • Campus: Online • Verified via LinkedIn
Let’s cut right to it: I’ve always wanted to be a programmer, but I never learned while in university. In fact, when I turned 24 years old, I thought I was running out of time. How wrong I was: I’m now proficient in React.js/Rails and currently looking for my next job (with Microverse' help and support!)
Beyond the skills Microverse teaches, the program's structure that mimics a real-world remote job ensures you become a well-rounded professional. Strong, open communication becomes critical for you, and you learn how to communicate feedback properly. These remote collaborations will be immensely helpful when working in a quickly-growing and fast-moving teams.
After finishing the technical curriculum, you start the career preparation section, which I think is underrated. You get the chance to work with professional recruiters and coaches that help and guide you until you land your dream job.
I don’t know where I would be without Microverse. It comes with my heartfelt recommendation.
- Microverse is an excellent bootcamp to learn software development and I'm proud to be part of Microverse.- 11/10/2019Temitayo Adeleke • Microverse Student • Student • Course: Software Development Program • Campus: Online • Verified via LinkedIn
I've always loved to build things that benefit people. So, after I graduated from university, I started learning computer programming so I could develop things that could help anyone around the world.
I took online courses, but it was really frustrating because I was doing it on my own. I would get stuck for days not knowing what to do after browsing for solutions to what were probably simple problems.
So, when I stumbled on an article about Microverse, I tried it out. It was a fantastic opportunity to learn and interact with people doing the same thing I was doing.
Joining the program has been a dream come true. I've received a lot of support from more experienced devs, and I've had the opportunity to help those who are just starting, too.
- Excellent Choice!- 11/7/2019Leon Little • Student • Student • Course: Software Development Program • Campus: Online • Verified via LinkedIn

- My Microverse Experience- 11/4/2019Terver Stephen Aosu • Software Engineer • Student • Course: Software Development Program • Campus: Online • Verified via LinkedIn
Before joining the Microverse Software Development Program, I had struggled with trying to learn to become a software engineer on my own, especially since I do not have a CS background, coming from an Engineering Major wasn't an easy switch.
I found Microverse towards the end of 2018 and I thought I should give it a try especially since I will not be making any financial commitment, I felt I could easily pull out, if it wasn't worth the time and then I was hooked, I have never been in such a program with so much support for your learning, it's more like a family, you reach out to anyone on the team and you are sure to get a very kind response even with the most foolish questions, and since it is remote I have mates from several different countries, background and experience and you are free to interact even on personal notes and learn from each other.
The handpicked resources are I think one of the best you can find anywhere, it is designed with the real-world job requirements in mind.
I am now a confident software engineer thanks to Microverse.
- Everyone must join Microverse- 11/2/2019Daniel Larbi Addo • Full-Stack Developer • Student • Course: Software Development Program • Campus: Online • Verified via GitHub
I am Daniel Larbi Addo from Ghana and am a full stack developer training at Microverse. It all started earlier this year (2019) when I decided to join Microverse and the journey has been great. I learn a lot from my coding partners, my stand-up team, mentors, code reviewers etc. The journey to becoming a full-stack developer has been awesome. Before Microverse: I used to work for G.E.S as a teacher in the public sector of Ghana. I have been teaching for 6 years, now I have left the teaching job and focused full time to Microverse. I recommend everyone to join Microverse and become the Software Developer you dream to be.
Now I can say I have a family of developers I can interact, ask for clarification and code together. I hope in the future, there will be some financial support for some of us to fully enjoy the program.
I thank Microverse for giving opportunities for us all.
- I’d recommend Microverse to anybody.- 2/15/2019Chibuzor Efedigbue • Software Developer • Graduate • Course: Software Development Program • Campus: Online • Verified via GitHub
I’m a Microverse graduate from Ibadan, Nigeria, and I now work as a full-stack remote developer making 8 times of what I earned previously, 3 times what my colleagues in Nigeria are making.
Last year, a friend suggested I should learn to code instead of continuing to work in customer support for a US-based company. I took his advice. I started learning to code through freeCodeCamp, but I stopped because I didn’t have anyone or anything to push me to keep learning.
I learned about Microverse and applied. I got in and I worked hard to make sure I didn’t lose my chance to become a software developer without paying until I got a job. The program was actually fun. I cultivated great work habits and made good friends all around the world. I still talk to some of the friends I made several times a week, Sanel from Bosnia and Dipto from Bangladesh. I’ve never even been to those countries.
Microvere also helps you prepare for working in a professional, remote job. They make sure you learn how to actually build projects, how to work together as a part of a remote software development team, and the process of getting your code live. My job is like Microverse, I submit pull requests and get my code reviewed by fresh eyes several times a week, like I used to with Kevin (my mentor at Microverse, from Kenya)
I recommend Microverse to anybody. I have three people already working on the pre-course work from my recommendation. I think that if you can make sure you have internet and electricity, Microverse is what you need to do. I know those aren’t problems in Europe, they can be in Africa.
Some background: I used to work in finance, but I started learning to code after realizing a lot of what I did in finance wasn’t being valued and there was so much opportunity in software development.
I joined Microverse as part of one of its first cohorts. For me, Microverse’s biggest draw was that, unlike most other coding bootcamps and really most traditional forms of education in general, where they take your money upfront and don’t care what happens afterwards, at Microverse I wouldn’t owe anything until I got a job—and if I didn’t get a job, I wouldn’t owe anything. This means that the organisation’s interests are the same as mine, which is a system that is fundamentally better in every way. All education should be like this. So I decided to take the leap and join.
Before joining Microverse, I learned a little bit of coding through free resources like freeCodeCamp and practicing through #100DaysOfCode. Microverse realizes this—that some of the best learning content is already out there—so they focus on guiding you to the right content and supporting you with a network of intelligent, ambitious people.
Microverse is also based on “remote pair programming”. If you’re not familiar with remote pair programming, it’s based on the idea that two heads are better than one. Basically, we were paired with another student, and every day, my partner and I would switch between being a “driver” and “navigator”. One of us would write the code and the other person would watch and provide feedback, comment, or suggest a different way of doing things. My partner (Kyle) was great—he was smart, ambitious, and hard-working. I was lucky to have him—we had our “aha!” moments at different times and we were able to play off of our different strengths.
The program is also substantially more thorough and complete compared to what typical coding bootcamps offer. So this really should not be called a “bootcamp” or considered as such.
One of the last parts of the curriculum is the “career prep” portion where you spruce up your resume, your online portfolio, and your online profiles while also practicing interview questions. I found some freelance work through Microverse, and combined with the projects I completed during the program, I received A LOT of calls and emails from recruiters before even finishing that section. I was humbled. I ended up turning off my online profiles and stopped accepting more interviews.
Going into my interviews, I didn’t feel ready for them because I didn’t have time to practice. Luckily, I passed several of them and received several job offers. I was like “Is this actually happening?” I genuinely started losing sleep because I was having a hard time deciding between several great job offers.
Microverse has the same incentive as you—to help you get a great job. In order to get there, they guide you toward the best materials to learn the most in-demand coding skills, surround you with an ambitious community, pair you with someone else going through the program, and help you establish a schedule and accountability. All education should be this way
- Max Li • full stack js developer • Graduate • Course: Software Development Program • Campus: Online • Verified via GitHub
I attended Microverse remote software development program from April 2018 to September 2018 (full time) and found my dream remote job in Poland :)
I studied aerospace engineering in college, but I decided to go for software development when I graduated. I was lucky to find a company in Beijing even though my goal was to find an international company to work for. After spending one year in Bejing, I went back to Taiwan and decided to start applying for international jobs. I had a hard time getting any job because back then I didn't know the proper way of applying for jobs. Then I found Microvese, a remote software development program that teaches you to become a pro at remote jobs. It was completely free until getting a job and it’s worldwide available, so I decided to give it a try.
About The Program:
The program is divided into two part.
Once I got accepted into the full-time program, I went over those same languages and technologies, but this time I built at least 30 different projects so I have a very deep understanding of each one now. I worked full-time with my coding partner (another student) by doing remote pair programming. That gave me a lot of teamwork experience, as well as teaching me the most important workflows used by real teams, and helping me improve my communication skills and English level.
I also dedicated at least 100 hours to mastering data structures and algorithms, so I’m now confident to work on more complicated algorithms and coding interviews.
Finally, Microverse assigned me a career coach that worked with me to help me get ready for job interviews. They helped me improve my portfolio, resume and online presence, and taught me everything I needed to know for job interviews. They then helped me find and apply to jobs and even negotiate my salary offers!
This program is for the dedicated and determined, but it's not like college or another school. You’re working collaboratively with many other highly-motivated and smart people who are determined to start a career in software development. There is a reason why Microverse accepts less than 1% of the people that apply. If you're looking to pull the trigger and commit to learning to code, then this is the program for you. It is truly incredible how much you can learn in 22 weeks. This program was both incredibly challenging and extremely rewarding.
Bottom line? Great people, great program. If you're committed to this craft and you have a passion for it, go for it.
Best of luck!

Microverse is a global school for software developers. From my experience, it emphasizes two main aspects: technical skills and soft skills, both of which are very important for a software developer.
I studied Biology and am new to programming. I started coding in January 2018 and it’s amazing how quickly I am growing. I remember the excitement and fulfillment I felt after completing the tic-tac-toe game project using Ruby.
For the first time, I felt like a programmer and the thought of everything being possible kept ringing in my mind. As a programming novice, what I love about Microverse is the way their material is organized and how every topic builds on a previous one facilitating the understanding of concepts that are sometimes difficult.
As a Cameroonian African, the major difficulty we face with online studies is the inability to financially sponsor our studies, but when I heard that Microverse teaches for free until you land a job, I immediately saw an opportunity to build my programming skills without financial worries.
Today makes me 19 weeks of working with Microverse. I have one last project with Ruby on Rails and am hoping to enter the Career Prep part of the program as fast as possible
- In my journey to become a Global Citizen!- 11/12/2019Vlad • Software Dev • Student • Course: Software Development Program • Campus: Online
I've been a student in Microverse for 4 months already, i think this has been a great experience overall since day 1.
New students are grouped in teams of 5(like scrum), this methodology helps improve the student's abilities by allowing them to share their daily experiences with others students from around the world(amazing huh?) while also improving communication and team work.
Personally i can give testimony of the amazing staff Microverse has, they are always open to hear you whenever you have a difficulty and that says a lot about their mindset as a company.
-Great way to start your software development career.
-Meet people around the world.
-Helps you build a daily routine and discipline.
-Improves communication and team work.
You need a 10mb stable internet connection at all times(for collaborating with your coding partner in video call)
There is some basic web development and coding requirements to join.
For some people with different timezones to the US, it might be difficult to attend the program since its from 9am-5pm
- Microverse is the best remote developer school.l- 11/7/2019Afani Martin • Full Stack Ruby on Rails Developer • Student • Course: Software Development Program • Campus: Online
Joining Microverse was the best decision of my life.
I studied Computer Science in college, but I learned more in 3 months at Microverse than I learned in 3 years at university. The difference was my college's curriculum was built around theory instead of practice.
Microverse helped me learn how to use real-world tools and connect with passionate students like myself from all over the world. I never had that while at my university.
I would recommend Microverse to anyone who wants to become a world-class developer and create a global network of friends.
- Zina Talaa • Graduate • Course: Software Development Program • Campus: Online
I am an Algerian woman, married with 5 children, who gave up her professional career as a computer engineer to start a new one at 'Microverse'. The desire to grow in my field has been steadily increasing since my graduation from university in 1996, however, I have encountered many obstacles "The internet, child-rearing, the nature of my work and others, "which prevented me from realizing my dream.
My admission to 'Microverse' last January, put me in a great dilemma, either leaving my job and fulfilling my dream or continue my normal life and give up my dream.
Sure, I chose without hesitation to join 'Microverse'. Now after hard working, I have finished my technical curriculum, I have learned with my partner, my team, and the reviews of many TSEs (Technical Support Engineers) all that is needed for web development (frontend and backend), and I am ready to move on to my new professional career also with the assistance of 'Microverse' staff.
I recommend Microverse Bootcamp to anybody because it's: safe, pleasant, beneficial, and the most important thing it's free until you got a job.
- Software Engineer- 11/4/2019SHEY Louis CHIA • Technical Support Enginner • Student • Campus: Online
This program is good. Most bootcamps has few teachers lecturing you and guiding projects. But this one is self-learning most of the time meaning u actually reach a higher state of mastery. While you can also study on your own without this program, the program brings the added advantage to have have taken the time to select the best web ressources for each stage ( sometimes currated internally by the Microverse team or students in the program). You can even take a twist to reading extra materials provided if you wish.
- You are not in a rush to finish because you maybe paid for a specific duration. It's free BEFORE you get a job, so your personal commitment gets you going (you learn better in such a circumstance).
- In my country (in africa), there's simply no good bootcamps. Microverse solves this issue coming from online
- No need to mention the power of working with people from all over the world (priceless)
- You cannot code about 31 projects (all reviewed) and solve hundreds of coding challenges in multiple platforms and not be a decent programmer.
All students wont have same level when they finish, but you would be a decent job-ready programmer :)
The student spirit /atmosphere is great ............ I wish more success to this TEAM
(finished the program in 8 months and just entered Career preparation section )
Personally had my share of troubles hahaha
- internet and electricity sometimes (issues of africa)
- temporal frustrations when you code not working, or working but not passing reviews (it's not an issue, just so you know it's in the process lol )
DOPE Program overall !
- Sava Vuckovic • Software Developer • Student • Course: Software Development Program • Campus: Online
I graduated high school and decided to learn software development instead of going to college. At first, I learned on my own with freeCodeCamp, Udemy, Udacity, and YouTube videos.
I learned about Microverse and that they would help you become a software developer free of charge until you had a job. I also read that everything was done in pairs, and I was interested because I wanted to try working with another developer. I also saw they had code reviewers check your work. I applied and was accepted.
I was paired with Kevin, a developer from Kenya. I’m from Serbia and we only had a small time difference, so it worked out well. Pair programming had a lot of benefits. For example, Kevin had more programming experience than me, which was really helpful. He taught me more about algorithms and databases, and due to my experience in front-end web development, I was also able to teach him few things.
I was doing the Career Prep portion of the curriculum when I saw a local internship that tends to lead to a full-time job. I had already practiced some algorithms and interview questions with Microverse, and I was glad that some of those questions were on the interview. I passed and got the internship.
I would definitely recommend Microverse to anyone who is hungry to learn software development and willing to dedicate 6 months or so.
