Near protocol is a layer-one Blockchain that aims to solve the problem of slow transaction rates, limited throughput and poor compatibility. There have been many different lecture documents which has been released to help improve knowledge about the near Blockchain, example includes the likes of docs.near.org and also the near academy. But yet due to near being built using rust programming language which we all know that learning rust is not an easy task and also it application. Many Near application built on the near Blockchain are mostly closed source. Without much open source code available, there can’t be much progress on the near Blockchain. We can take example from how the Solana blockchain works. Which have seen improved adoption due to available of open source codes available. The major problem with the near protocol is
-There is a shortage of experience talent in the near protocol ecosystem, For us to tackle these problem in a long term, we will need to organize a community event to quickly boost talent in the short term.
In order to solve these above problem, I am proposing a one week virtual 100% free bootcamp which will be opened to any skill level,where those who have experience in developing Application on the Near protocol will help to trains newbies who are willing and ready to learn to develop Applications on the near protocol.
Every participants will be divided into two groups,The beginner and those with little skill knowledge about the near Blockchain. The beginners will be task with a simple a DAPP application on the near Blockchain, while those with near protocol little experience will be given task like creating NFT depending how it is going to be organized.
And also All participants will also have to solve daily coding challenges to help them learn and demonstrate important concepts.
There will be prizes for those who will take 1st 2nd and 3rd depending on the two categories that we will be created and the near foundation will vote to select winners. For the bootcamp.
How will these help
The above bootcamp suggested above will help to get people more involved and active using the near protocol ecosystem.
Any body can learn from these event as there will be a basic breakdown of the near protocol and participants will be able to create there first dapp on the near ecosystem.
As we all know there are many projects in the ecosystem who are looking for developers to join them these bootcamp can also be an avenue to meet new talent in the near ecosystem.
How can the near protocol help
Well The near foundation has always been the backbone of the near ecosystem
These bootcamp can be funded by the near protocol ecosystem and also with the near foundation backup we can also seek support from other projects to get mentors and developer who will be supporting so as to make the bootcamp a successful one.
How would you measure the success of this initiative
I will say first bootcamp has existed for long and most programmer would tell you bootcamp ignited the intuition within them. Near is becoming more and more common in the Blockchain world today. A near bootcamp will be a successful initiative, because people will be having a first practical challenge about the near ecosystem from both developer and also mentors for a period of 1week.
How is it different from the current programs by the education team
We might be wondering what the difference between my proposed near bootcamp and the current programs which are being run by the educational team of the near academy.
my proposed near bootcamp is a organized community event which will be used to boost talent in a short term and the bootcamp will last for one week, after which the education team can continue and with a successful bootcamp I think it will make the current programs run by the educational team more simple, because most participants have already have a initial first hand near protocol challenge during the bootcamp and they will even be more ready to learn more about the near Blockchain.
