Web3 development can be hard to navigate. Too many choices, not enough guidance. No formal learning path, but an overwhelming collection of one-off technical tutorials.

All the Web3 knowledge a developer needs to know is already out there, but it needs to be curated, ordered, and synthesized. The Chainlink Fall 2022 Hackathon is an opportunity to learn faster and with purpose. Hackathon participants learn directly from industry experts, starting with the basics and ending in a specialist field of their choosing. Start with blockchains and smart contracts, End with DeFi or NFTs.

There’s plenty on offer for advanced developers too: Chainlink Fall 2022 Hackathon workshops dive deep into creating dApps with the most popular Web3 development frameworks, such as Hardhat and Foundry. In addition to this, you’ll get the chance to sit in on extensive code-along sessions that go through the process of building from start to finish, ensuring you follow best practices for coding DeFi protocols, on-chain games and raffles, frontend interfaces, and more.
