EkoLance is launching a 13-week course for people seeking a career in the blockchain ecosystem as a solidity developer.
The official start date of the course is the 3rd of October, 2022 and the application deadline is the 25th of September, 2022. The sessions take place every Monday at 7PM WAT.
Why this training is important?
Blockchain development refers to building, maintaining and designing blockchain applications and systems to solve problems and create opportunities. On the other hand, a blockchain developer is a software developer who focuses on the blockchain technology, and builds applications on various blockchain protocols.
The demand for blockchain developers is skyrocketing and the US Bureau of Labour Statistics predicts a 22% growth in software development jobs between 2020 and 2030. As the adoption of the technology increases across various business sectors the need for blockchain developers has also increased rapidly and the career opportunities and corresponding salaries are extremely attractive.
A Cointelegraph research shows that financial investments within the blockchain sector have increased in the past year over 300% from 4.4 billion USD in Q1 2021 to 14.6 billion USD in Q1 2022, which is evidence that more companies will be looking to expand their blockchain teams and therefore high more blockchain developers. As a blockchain developer you can work remotely, and not have to deal with the hassle of relocation while stick working in a high paying job.
EkoLance is leveraging on this growth opportunity and providing structured web3 training for the new blockchain skills and professions. We equip professionals to join the workforce in the blockchain ecosystem.
The training will take place over the course of 13 weeks. Every week the participants will interact with industry experts, and also be able to practice their skills on real life projects which would be included in their practical experience The table below describes the agenda of the solidity developer training.
