Announcing the 2022 Solana Blockchain Developer Bootcamp

We’re excited to announce that registration is now open for the 2022 Solana Blockchain Developer Bootcamp, sponsored by Chainlink! 

To help accelerate the continued wave of innovation in the emerging Solana smart contract ecosystem, this bootcamp will give developers across the globe all the guidance they need to begin building Solana smart contracts, and also support them in learning how to connect these contracts with off-chain data and computation from Chainlink oracles to create the next generation of hybrid smart contracts

The Solana Blockchain Developer Bootcamp is designed both for experienced blockchain developers who are looking to expand into the Solana ecosystem and those just starting their journey into Web3

The bootcamp will cover the following:

  • A high-level overview of Solana
  • Solana architecture and the program/account programming model
  • A short overview of the Rust programming language
  • The fundamentals of building Solana smart contracts
  • How to write, deploy, and interact with Solana smart contracts 
  • An overview of the Anchor framework and how to use it when building on Solana
  • How to use Chainlink Data Feeds to create hybrid smart contracts 

This global virtual event is free to attend. Interested developers can choose to register for one of two separate tracks—a two-session workshop that runs during the week or a second two-session weekend track. Register now to secure your spot, and read on below for more details. 

Join the Incoming Wave of Solana Developers

Solana is a relative newcomer compared to other blockchains, yet it has already attracted thousands of developers to its ecosystem thanks to its high throughput and low transaction costs as well as its use of popular programming languages such as Rust and C++. 

As smart contract adoption continues to accelerate and the Solana ecosystem continues to grow, there will be an increasing need for skilled Solana blockchain developers who understand the nuances of creating secure and feature-rich hybrid smart contracts. The 2022 Solana Blockchain Developer Bootcamp aims to jumpstart your journey into the Solana ecosystem by providing a solid foundation in Solana, Rust, Anchor, and Chainlink Data Feeds.

Start Building With Chainlink

As you learn the ins and outs of building on Solana, you’ll eventually want to create smart contracts that are connected to real-world data and off-chain computation. Chainlink is the most widely used oracle network for powering hybrid smart contracts, enabling any blockchain to securely access off-chain data and computation. Learning to use decentralized oracle networks such as Chainlink is integral for any smart contract developer hoping to create hybrid smart contracts that leverage both the capabilities of blockchain networks and high-quality data and computation from the real world. 

With this in mind, the bootcamp teaches developers how to create hybrid smart contracts on Solana. Specifically, developers will learn how to make use of Chainlink Data Feeds for consuming tamper-proof market data in their Solana smart contract applications.

By the end of the bootcamp, developers will understand Solana and its unique programming model, the basics of Rust and coding Solana smart contracts, and how to use Chainlink Data Feeds with their on-chain Rust programs to create hybrid smart contracts.
