Global blockchain specialist firm ConsenSys has announced the launch of the first cohort of its ConsenSys Academy Developer Program on August 1st, 2017. The ConsenSys Academy Developer Program is an blockchain training program designed to provide more blockchain developers for the growing industry. The program begins with Phase1 – an immersive online module that will start with a welcome video from Joseph Lubin, the co-founder of Ethereum and founder of ConsenSys.
High performing students will be invited to Phase2 of the program which will be taking place in Dubai. Since the announcement of the Dubai Blockchain Strategy 2020 by the Dubai Future Foundation (DFF) and the Smart Dubai Office (SDO) in October, 2016, Dubai has attracted leading experts and talent from around the globe to help Dubai fulfil its goal of becoming the world’s first blockchain-powered government. This includes ConsenSys, whose Dubai-based regional headquarters has grown into it’s second-largest operation globally behind its Brooklyn HQ.
