Web3 Clubs Second Cohort to train about 50 Kenya developers on how to build decentralized applications (dApps)

Web3 Clubs, an initiative focused on championing Web3 developer education in Africa, has kicked off its second cohort in March 2023. The cohort seeks to train about 50 developers on how to build decentralized applications (dApps) on the Ethereum blockchain, and install several more Web3 Clubs in universities.

The importance of developer capacity building cannot be over-emphasized. Developers are critical to the growth and development of the Web3 ecosystem. However, the lack of skilled developers is a major bottleneck hindering the growth of the ecosystem on the African continent. Web3 Clubs is addressing this challenge in this second cohort expected to produce a new crop of developers who will be able to build innovative dApps that will solve real-world problems on the Ethereum blockchain. 

The free online 2-month training programme runs from March 13 2023 to May 6 2023. Training will involve be a hybrid of online sessions and on-location bootcamps.

The Ethereum Smart Contracts Development Course is designed for software developers, blockchain enthusiasts, and anyone who wants to learn how to build decentralized applications on the Ethereum network. It is ideal for:

  • Experienced developers who want to expand their knowledge and skills in blockchain technology and smart contracts
  • Students or beginners who want to learn about Ethereum and smart contracts development from scratch
  • Entrepreneurs or business professionals who want to explore the potential of Ethereum for their businesses

By the end of the course, participants are expected to have a comprehensive understanding of the following:

  • The basics of Ethereum and how it works
  • The Solidity programming language and how to write smart contracts using Solidity
  • Advanced Solidity concepts such as modifiers, inheritance, and error handling
  • Ethereum development tools and environment setup using Truffle and Ganache
  • Interacting with smart contracts through web3.js library
  • Advanced contract topics such as events and optimization
  • Security and best practices for writing secure and efficient smart contracts
  • Building and deploying a fully functional smart contract that solves a real-world problem

Web3 Clubs ran a successful first cohort in 2022 which saw 30 developers graduate as NEAR protocol developers.
