Learn Web 3.0 and become a Blockchain Developer with 8-week Training Course.
Base network launches 8-week training course for blockchain developers

Learning Web 3.0: Base Bootcamp

On Oct. 20, the Ethereum layer-2 Base network announced the launch of an eight-week training course designed to help traditional software developers transition into blockchain developers. This program, called “Base Bootcamp”, is free of charge, but is only open to “mid to senior level Software Engineering individual contributors”, and applications close on Oct. 27. Each cohort will have less than 20 students.

Base claims the program is necessary because there are only 30,000 onchain developers compared to 30 million software developers, meaning only 0.1% of software developers work in Web3. Earlier in the year, Base had released an online training program called “Base Camp”, which was open to anyone, but they decided it wasn’t enough as learning a complex new skill alone can be difficult.

Base Bootcamp will provide more support to developers, as each student will be paired with a mentor and have access to a group of Coinbase and Base engineers during office hours. Furthermore, a private Discord server will be created for students to communicate with each other and the Base engineers, and additional assignments will be given and graded by members of the team. At the end of the program, students will be required to create their own Web3 app and present it to the other students.

Although the program does not charge tuition, students must provide a deposit of 1 Ether (ETH) to ensure they finish the program. Base says this deposit will be returned to the student upon graduation.

The lack of qualified Web3 developers, also known as “Learn Web3”, is a commonly reported problem in the industry. Some Australian educators have suggested teaching Web3 development in high schools as a means of combating the problem. Other companies have tried to create tools to make Web3 development more simple. For example, Circle recently released a set of tools that allow developers to deploy contracts using familiar Web2 methods, such as 1 Inch Crypto Today, Algo Crypto Today, Atom Crypto Today, AI in Today, Apps for Crypto, AMP Today Crypto, and About Crypto Today.
