GoMint supports free Hedera coding course
GoMint is delighted to be supporting a new free education program for the Hedera Hashgraph ecosystem launched by Circle Students, a UK company building a circular student economy.
As one of Circle Students’ innovative solutions, they are encouraging students to consider blockchain/DLT development as a career choice, with a particular focus on Hedera Hashgraph, by providing free practical training on how to build on Hedera.
The program was developed by Circle Students’ founder Jake Hall, a British chemical engineering student at Nottingham University, who himself had recently learned to code and is now deep inside the Hedera ‘rabbit-hole’.
Leveraging his experience and what he found as the relative ease of coding on Hedera, Jake developed the course, which is delivered through a series of interactive online sessions over MS Teams.
The first 6 sessions are taking place during October and November 2022, with around 20 students in attendance. The course provides an introduction to Web3.0 through the lens of the Hedera Hashgraph network. Students learn how to create a testnet account, send transactions, create and send fungible tokens and NFTs, as well as learning how to create a simple ‘smart contract’.
The overriding objective is to increase the visibility of Hedera Hashgraph, especially to new developers entering the wider blockchain space, promoting its strengths such as scalability, speed and security.
Upon completion of the course, students will receive a digital certificate recorded as an NFT by GoMint on Hedera. The hope is to widen the talent pool of Hedera developers and thereby support the growth of Hedera as a whole.
