The Africa Blockchain Alliance(ABA), in partnership with ConsenSys Academy, the educational core of the Ethereum movement is bringing to focus the Ethereum Blockchain Developer Program to Africa.
The first cohort of the program is reportedly graduating in July 2019 and applications are now open for the second cohort starting in August 2019. Africa Blockchain Alliance is looking to increase the number of developers and country representation with this next cohort and will also be awarding scholarships to a number of developers for the program, thanks to a $10,000 grant from ConsenSys Grants, which was announced during the 2019 Ethereal Summit in New York on May 2019.
“The goal of this program is to give developers the opportunity to gain the skills necessary to become industry-ready blockchain developers that can add significant value to their organizations, businesses, or make them marketable to top blockchain companies across the globe. Registrations are now open for the second cohort which will commence on July 29, 2019. Registration closes on July 21, 2019,” says a statement on ABA’s website.
