ConsenSys has announced that it will be conducting a three-day blockchain developer training followed by a two-day hackathon in Lebanon on Oct. 17.
From the workings of blockchain technology to its applications and features, participants will receive in-depth training on how to create a development environment, build decentralized applications (dApp) with Ethereum smart contracts and integrate the dApps with web applications.
“Lebanon has always adopted an entrepreneurial approach in dealing with challenges; and the startup ecosystem has been growing in the recent years. There are a lot of developers and entrepreneurs looking for some expert guidance and direction,” said Marc Ziade, business operations and strategy director at ConsenSys and Lebanon bootcamp lead.
“The ConsenSys Blockchain Developer Bootcamp is designed to address Lebanon’s many issues such as the energy shortage and the refugee situation,” he added.
“Finding and honing tech talent and innovation in the Middle East is a primary objective of ConsenSys. This initiative is a testament to this. We look forward to working closely with our partners in Lebanon to find this next generation of brilliant minds and help define the many use cases in this country that could benefit from blockchain technology,” said Asim Janjua, director of ConsenSys MENA.
