FAQ

You will have group projects in which you can work with other students. Furthermore, we will encourage and reward students for mingling and embracing the collaborative nature of web3.

Who do I contact for further questions?

Can I have a full-time job while on the course?

Yes! The course is designed for professional developers who are interested in transitioning to web3, and it expects a 20h commitment per week from each student.

Are there any Scholarships?

We aren’t offering any scholarships for now, but have you seen there is no upfront cost? 🙂

Do I have to attend any live sessions?

We strongly encourage you to attend the few live sessions we host; however, most sessions will be async and any live session will be recorded.

What if I am not able to complete a project by the deadline?

We will offer ongoing support with our coaches for you to finish it and understand how you can accomplish it.

You will learn the fundamentals of blockchains and how to interact with a blockchain, Solidity, testing with Foundry and deployment on testnets & L2s with Hardhat, ERC-20, ERC-721, ERC-1155, oracles, gas optimization, blockchain data and storage (The Graph, IPFS, Arweave). Most importantly, this is a hands-on program and you will spend most of your time building actual applications.

Our goal is for you to get an actual web3 dev job, so we will provide lessons on interviewing, how to have a web3 mindset, work ethics, social capital and deliver guest lectures from industry experts and founders

What if I don't get a job after the program?

We work with our recruiter partners to ensure that doesn't happen, but if that's the case we keep supporting your recruiting process, as well as provide a 3-month internship to further develop your skillsets.

What's the cost of the program?

We believe everyone in the world should benefit from high-quality education. To accommodate for that, we offer different tuition plans, including the possibility of deferred tuition until you land a high-paying web3 job.
