The Africa Blockchain Developers Call, a Pan-African initiative targeted at training developers on blockchain technology, has officially declared its platform open for applications from African developers. Selected developers will have the opportunity of being intensively trained by world-class experts on blockchain use-cases and the deployment of specially tailored solutions on the African continent.
Aside from the training sessions, opportunities for engagement and networking will equally be presented with the pitch sessions, roundtable stakeholder discussions, and weekend conferences which will be held during the Bootcamp.
Similarly, intensive training sessions will be conducted on Ardor, Tezos, Ethereum and CODEX, all on the AltHash platform. Developers will be split into teams, and trained in product and software development, as well as the deployment of Distributed Ledger Technology(DLT) solutions.
