500 Nigerian Developers for Ethereum

With the announcement of ConsenSys Founder Joe Lubin during Devcon 5 launching the drive to increase the Ethereum developer community to one million, we launched a pilot project which was sponsored by ethereum.network and our amazing partners Cryptographic Development Initiatives in Nigeria(CDIN), Crevatal.

 

The pilot project turned out an amazing learning time for the participants who in the coming days will be releasing their codes to show the world how impactful the project was. Also the pilot project presented us with opportunity to do an holistic review and come up with more impactful and organized teaching and learning program.

 

With careful review done on the pilot project and more support from the global Ethereum community, we announce the launch of the first Phase of 500 Nigeria Devs for Ethereum project. This phase promise to welcome more participants from Nigeria and other African countries, mentors from global Ethereum community and improved partners both in and outside of Nigeria.

 

The focus of this phase is primarily to have developers using various programming language learn solidity and will allow for global interaction of participants and notable Ethereum personalities.

Partners for this phase of the projects include

Crevatal was birthed out of passion for excellence in user experience delivery.
