‘Best HackETHon Runner Up Prize. Ever.’
Although not the winners at last weekend’s Thomson Reuter HackETHon, the Bountymax team were just as pleased to receive the runner up prize of free access to the B9lab Ethereum Developer's Course.
‘We are very proud to win the prize of receiving B9lab’s training’ said Bountymax’s Makato Inoue, it’s “the best HackETHon runner up prize. Ever.”
Five members of the team are now enrolled and looking forward to starting within the next month.
The prize, worth EUR 4,975, was donated by B9lab for the runners up in the HackETHon. Damien Ducourty (B9lab’s founder) said:
“I’m glad we donated the prize, mostly because we did so badly in the mentor’s challenge! We were enjoying ourselves too much, it was a great event.”
B9lab developed the course in response to a growing demand for trained developers from large companies and institutions. 'We were getting daily requests from potential clients to provide training or find developers for their blockchain projects. We quickly realised the community needed a course that would certify their talents, and that's what we're trying to achieve." said Elias Haase (B9lab’s founder).
Now on its fourth iteration, the online course is made up of videos, screencasts, exercises and graded midterm and final examinations. Office hour support is given by the B9lab course team composed of experienced developers who have all been part of the blockchain community from the start and witnessed the technology evolve.
Jef Statham, (developer at Solink) remarked:
"The support while on the course was responsive keeping me unblocked on all of my little learning stumbles. Also as the network of DAPP development tools updated through the course the staff kept up with the newest developments including adding it to the course materials."
