Event Details

Don’t miss this opportunity to attend ConsenSys’ first Ethereum blockchain developer bootcamp in Lebanon and gain the skills and knowledge to join the blockchain movement!

Despite the country’s many challenges, the Lebanese population has always been known for its talent and entrepreneurial spirit.

The Blockchain Developer Bootcamp will be our first pilot in Lebanon. The ConsenSys Lebanon Blockchain Developer Bootcamp is a highly selective, coding-intensive training program carried out over 3 days, followed by a 2-day hackathon where participants will be required to create projects based on their learnings.

The bootcamps’ objectives are to:

  • Train programmers and students and provide them with skills to enable them to find jobs in the Blockchain space
  • Create awareness around blockchain in Lebanon
  • Promote blockchain ideation to leverage blockchain technology in solving some of the challenges Lebanon is facing (winning teams will get funding and opportunity to join an accelerator)

The bootcamp will cover Ethereum concepts, introduce key developer tools and other aspects of smart contract and dApp development including building a front end, and will include security best practices.

Get to know ConsenSys and explore job opportunities at ConsenSys
as well as other bootcamp partners.

The bootcamp is 5 days in total. The first 3 days are the developer training, followed by a 2 day Hackathon.

Yes. The Blockchain Developer Bootcamp is designed for experienced and passionate Object-Oriented Programmers with proficiency in Python, JavaScript, HTML, and Git. One year basic experience is required.

The cost of participating in the bootcamp is US$ 450. For students currently enrolled in a full-time or part-time degree, the cost for participating in the bootcamp is US$ 250. Students will need to provide a copy of a current valid Student ID. For refugees, we are offering limited places in the bootcamp free of charge.

The bootcamp will cover Ethereum concepts, introduce key developer tools and other aspects of smart contract and dApp development including building a front end, and will include security best practices.

We will provide participants and applicants with a library of resources to prepare prior to the bootcamp.

The potential and promise of blockchain and decentralization is set to disrupt and create a new era of innovation in almost all industries. While still in its infancy and protocol development stage, successful production deployments range from FinTech, Supply Chain, Energy, Real Estate to Government Services and Identity. At ConsenSys, our teams are hard at work building the future of protocols and applications for law, music, real estate, identity, governance, journalism, online advertising and more.

The Web 1.0 was a read-only Internet of static web pages. Web 2.0 added dynamic user-generated content and the rise of social media. Web 3.0 has many definitions, but one of the most popular is that of connective intelligence: where the next generation of applications, data, concepts, and people are connected by an unmediated fabric where you don't need a trust broker like a bank or tech company in the middle to ensure privacy and security. In blockchain, we finally have the technology to power Web 3.0

Blockchain technology sparked the Web 3.0 transition by making several things possible that weren’t before. Thanks to the technology’s decentralized nature, there are no central parties controlling entire platforms. Each network member partly controls a particular blockchain, and together all network members decide on the future of the platform.

Data is stored across the network, meaning there are no central servers anymore – and thus no central points of entry – making data storage vastly more secure. Hackers would have to hack an entire blockchain, which cannot be done with our existing technology.

Decentralized data storage also means no more selling, manipulating, and surveilling of user data by central parties. All user data that is collected via blockchain can be fully encrypted, and the rules of conduct on what to do with this data are transparently written in the blockchain’s programming.

Because all transactions are stored on a decentralized, shared ledger, blockchain is inherently transparent. The entire community can see transactions appearing on the blockchain, check wallets, and access the programming of the blockchain, without knowing who owns what and who is who.

Web 3.0 will be comprised of a stack much like the following:

  1. decentralized transaction layer. (Ethereum — being the strongest)
  2. decentralized file storage layer (IPFS and Swarm)
  3. A decentralized messaging layer (Matrix or Whisper)
  4. A high throughput computing resource (Golem)

To put it in a nutshell, Web 2.0 vs Web 3.0 comparison is comparing a black & white TV set with modern day Smart TV. Transition from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0 is just another natural step to move on from one older technology stack to its modern successor.

Private blockchains use blockchain-based application development platforms such as Ethereum or blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) platforms such as those offered by Microsoft and Amazon, running on private cloud infrastructure. Public blockchains like Bitcoin were the open-source movement that started it all, and private blockchains are taking that technology and commercializing it for businesses.

The Bootcamp will allow participants to achieve basic skills for smart contracts development and DApss. After completion, participants will understand the technology and the fundamentals of smart contracts programming enabling them to apply it and develop key use cases on Ethereum.

Participants will be able to:

  • Understand Blockchain for the decentralization of internet and a new paradigm for solution-enabling
  • Have an understanding of EVM, Gas & Fees, Smart Contracts & Quality Assessment
  • Setup and use a developer environment to test and execute exercises with smart contracts.
  • Develop a first-level DApp integrating and interacting from backend and frontend (Web3.js).

Participants are required to conceptualize a blockchain-based solution around one of the themes provided by ConsenSys. ConsenSys mentors will be available during the Hackathon to help participants realize their vision and support with the development of their concept and pitch.
