The Tezos Foundation is proud to announce that it is committing funding to train at least 1,000 new Tezos-focused software developers in 2019.

Beginning today, the Foundation will award grants to organizations that have a proven ability to train developers effectively. The grants will support the creation of Tezos online tutorials, training materials and documentation, course preparations, and other tools.

The training programs are intended to empower developers so that they are better able to contribute to the Tezos protocol and build tools, smart contracts, and applications on top of it. They may do this by connecting with existing Tezos development teams or starting projects on their own. In turn, the Foundation will continue its support of developers through grants and other efforts to ensure that they have the resources they need to carry out their projects.

Throughout 2019, the Foundation will actively promote grantees’ training programs and the various opportunities each has to offer. The committed funding is in addition to the Foundation’s grantmaking initiatives.

The Tezos Foundation’s core mission is to support the long-term success of the Tezos protocol and ecosystem. By funding projects imagined by scientists, researchers, developers, entrepreneurs, and enthusiasts, the Foundation encourages decentralized development and robust participation.
