B9lab, a leading provider of blockchain education and training, has announced a new training program for Tezos – the first liquid proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain protocol.
Tezos Blockstars, an end-to-end program supported by experienced tutors at B9lab, is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to become industry-leading Tezos developers. The Tezos Foundation will sponsor 250 seats in the program, with the aim of making learning more accessible to aspiring developers around the world.
Damien Ducourty, co-founder of B9lab, said: “As an established protocol, Tezos is at the cutting-edge of advancements in the blockchain space, and we are excited to be able to create this course with input from the Tezos Foundation, and that they share in our vision of making learning more accessible.”
Tezos is designed to give stakeholders the ability to amend the protocol through an innovative on-chain governance mechanism. It is also designed to evolve, allowing it to implement future innovations without the need for contentious hard forks. The native smart contract language for Tezos was purpose-built for security and supports formal verification, which enables the rigorous testing of key security properties.
Alison Mangiero, President of the Tocqueville Group, a Tezos-focused company that the Tezos Foundation enlisted to help design the program, said the move would be beneficial for the blockchain and cryptocurrency community.
“B9lab’s Tezos Blockstars program underscores our effort to attract the best and brightest developers and entrepreneurs to build on Tezos,” she said.
“With the Tezos Foundation’s support of this project, a new cohort of developers will be able to build and innovate on the only major self-governing proof-of-stake blockchain operating and contribute to this growing community.”
Applications for Tezos Blockstars are open until March 20th, 2019.
