When the first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, was launched in 2009, the idea was to allow online payments to be made with electronic money directly from person to person (the so-called peer-to-peer), without the transaction going through any bank or financial institution.
Now, almost 10 years later, blockchain, the underlying technology, has grown in popularity and its applications extend well beyond the realm of finance. So much, in fact, that the demand for software developers specialized in blockchain is skyrocketing, leading to the necessity of specific training and education.
In fact, Kingsland University is the world’s first school to provide blockchain-specific training and education, with courses that include Blockchain Programming and Blockchain Executive Education.
It has just established a partnership with the Tezos Foundation, the entity behind the Tezos, the world’s first liquid proof-of-stake blockchain protocol, that will result in the training of at least a thousand developers focused on the Tezos protocol.
With this partnership, Kingsland University will collaborate with the Tezos Foundation in order to produce a developer curriculum that is specific to this protocol – a curriculum that will afterward be available in the University’s offering. From this joint venture, there will also result in hackathons, courses, project incubation, and more, all in the next year.
Jason King, the co-founder of Kingsland University School of Blockchain, issued a comment on this partnership:
“The Kingsland-Tezos Foundation partnership addresses the growing need for developers at a protocol-specific level. We are looking for developers from a range background – devs who have 3 – 5 years experience, those looking for a shift in career focus, and those looking to work on transformative global projects.
If you are interested in Tezos, Ocaml or other functional language experience will be a big help. We’re committed to diversifying the sector and providing equitable access to our high-level blockchain training programs. The door is wide open for anyone willing to put in the time and effort to train in this new technology.”
Anyone interested in this curriculum should register for updates in Kingsland’s website.
