Tezos Blockstars is an end-to-end program supported by experienced tutors at B9lab and designed to provide developers with the knowledge and skills needed to become industry-leading Tezos developers.
Build your own application, start a company, or join one of the many teams already building on Tezos!
You don’t need to know anything about blockchain technology, you just need to be strong with code.
In Phase 1 (the Selection Process), we will test, rank, and select the most qualified applicants through a HackerRank program. There are two cohorts, in the first cohort at least 150 and up to 200 developers will be selected, and the second cohort will allow for a total of 500 developers to take the Tezos developer course for free.
In Phase 2 (the Developer Course), the selected developers will be sponsored by the Tezos Foundation to participate in the Tezos Developer Course for free and have access to mentoring and code review by the B9lab tutors.
The course will last seven weeks and be conducted entirely online, so those selected can participate from anywhere in the world. Progress at your own pace -time demands should be about 20 hours per week of studying/coding.
In Phase 3 (the Final Project), participants will have four weeks to submit a final project that is built on Tezos.
In Phase 4 (the Official Certificate), participants’ final projects will be evaluated and graded by the B9lab team. Participants may receive a certificate 4 weeks after submissions if they score well enough to demonstrate professional competence in programming smart contracts on Tezos. Certificates will be stored on a blockchain and protected by private keys.
