The Tezos Training Courses and the Contest for Top Talents
Tezos (XTZ) aims to utilize B9lab’s know-how, as the latter has been offering training programs and talent services through its online academy to more than 13,000 students since 2014.
The Tezos blockchain e-learning which is set to launch in March 2019 will consist of two courses that are currently under development. The first course, dubbed Tezos 101, will be offered for free to introduce users to Tezos, while a paid course, called “Tezos Developers,” will focus on advancing the knowledge of talented developers in the Tezos ecosystem.
Damien Ducourty, Founder at B9lab said:
“We are excited to work with the Tezos Foundation to bring high-quality education and training to the Tezos community and beyond.”
Another significant part of the announcement, perhaps the most noteworthy, is the “Tezos Blockstars Program.” Through a HackerRank code challenge, Tezos Foundation aims to identify the top 250 most talented developers and sponsor them to participate in a program that will be operated by B9lab. Successful candidates will enjoy several benefits, like free access to the “Tezos Developer” course. However, more details about the program are yet to be disclosed.
Ryan Jesperson, President of the Tezos Foundation, added:
“B9lab is a leader in training programs for blockchain projects and we are excited to partner with them.”
Tezos Will Staff Its Ecosystem With Developers in Collaboration With More Educational Platforms
Tezos Foundation plans to further expand its training program and offerings within the Tezos ecosystem, as well as to attract a wider audience from the crypto industry. To ensure the long-term success of the Tezos ecosystem, the Foundation follows a strict due diligence policy prior to funding initiatives.
Earlier this month, Tezos announced another partnership with Kingsland, a blockchain educational platform, during the Crypto Summit event, hosted by NASDAQ in New York City. These developments follow on the heels of the Foundation’s ultimate goal to have 1,000 fully trained programmers by 2019, that will help them build the necessary tools, smart contracts, and DApps, to contribute in the Tezos protocol.
