The DEN (Decentralized Education Nexus) offers a part-time, 6-week blockchain development bootcamp in Silicon Valley. With a focus on hands-on, career-transformative education and real-world solutions, The DEN aims to fill the growing knowledge gap between the visionaries who are driving the evolution of the blockchain space, and those who want to become a part of it. The course curriculum is developed and refined alongside CEO's, CTO's, and hiring leads within the industry with the goal of producing job-ready applicants. With courses for developers, entrepreneurs, and business leaders, students of all backgrounds have the opportunity to demystify the intricacies of decentralized technologies and master the art of developing products and building real solutions in a decentralized environment. Students will gain experience in deploying smart contracts to live blockchains, analyzing business use-cases, and developing decentralized applications from end to end. Courses are small with personalized attention, and they focus on real-world examples and applications, along with collaborative projects to solidify knowledge.

 To apply, prospective students can fill out a short online form, participate in a non-technical phone screen, and a technical phone interview. Previous development experience is highly recommended, especially in languages like Python, Java, and Javascript. Applicants should also have a basic understanding of blockchain, Ethereum, and smart contracts.

 The DEN provides immersive bootcamps, evening part-time professional development courses, and corporate programs via structured labs and activities. After the course, students are eligible to receive a blockchain development certification. Graduates receive help with portfolio materials and get direct feedback from The DEN’s blockchain hiring network. The DEN graduates have continued access to the Alumni Network, hiring partners, and weekly coding sessions.

      One of the toughest parts about learning Solidity is understanding the surrounding infrastructure which comprises Blockchain technology. It's true that Solidity feels like java, but that doesn't mean that it works in the same way. Prior to attending the DEN, I struggled to put together simple blockchain applications. Over the course of 1 week, I learned about incorporating Blockchain Oracles, deploying contracts over testnets, as well as several other nuances required to write good Solidity code. The instructors shared practical knowledge, and helped us learn through good work. Very appreciative of my opportunity to study with the DEN.

      I enjoyed the bootcamp. If you don't have much experience about blockchain and how it all works I would recommend learning it before you take the bootcamp. Other than that I had a great experience. Fantastic teachers! If I had a question they were always willing to help out! Good luck guys!

    Thanks!
