This October, Holochain is hosting a training to give developers the critical tools they need to design, develop, and deploy Holochain apps. This four day online intensive will have you working closely with your cohort and will also plug you into our growing ecosystem, helping you to find your next project and get hired to build the future of the web.
Following our last Dev Training in March, the Holochain community and code have continued to mature. With a new Head of Developer Relations and continued commitment to growing our dev ecosystem, we are offering this second online Dev Training to support that growth.
Holochain is in beta and we are seeing growth across our community of projects as they build towards maturity with us. This means a high demand for developers with the experience to build Holochain apps.
To provide the highest-quality and most supportive education experience, we have partnered with Mythosthesia, led by Marcus Philips who co-founded Hack Reactor, a software engineering bootcamp that has helped thousands of people to become job-ready software engineers.
And we want you to join us.
It's quite stellar, to be succinct. There's an extremely valuable union here between instructors and students who are extremely knowledgeable on the subject matter, but who are also excited and eager to teach and themselves learn. It creates a super conducive atmosphere to learning and general information exchange which is right up there in my catalogue of educational experiences. —Aleksandar Gujas, March 2023 Alum

The Learning Arc
As a comprehensive, high-level training experience, this course is designed to take you from never having touched Holochain to being able to deploy full, production-quality Holochain apps. In addition to the 4 days of training, we are hosting a mini-hackathon where you will be able to test and show your skills, building a portfolio of work that will help to get you hired.
Watch these demos from our last Dev Training cohort.
Fantastic, I'm very grateful I got to participate — it was very timely for me and I'm excited to build some hApps with folks. Highly recommend the team and course to anyone considering the training. —Joshua Vial
Seeking Rust Devs
Holochain is a framework for distributed apps that enables data integrity on a peer-to-peer basis without the need for central servers or blockchains. As the Holochain framework is built on Rust, this course assumes some familiarity with the language in order to fully participate.
If you’ve been programming for a while but don’t know Rust, we have Rust study resources that you can use to prepare for the tech check section of our application process.
How much Rust experience do you need?
If you are familiar with the below by the time of your tech check, you should be comfortably meeting the course requirements.
- Review chapters 1–11 in the Rust Book
- Do the accompanying Rustlings exercises
- Get extra practice doing some easy to medium Leetcode problem
What specific skills do you need to qualify?
- Basic ability to write, compile, and run Rust code will be necessary for following the coding exercises.
- Familiarity with developer tools such as the command line, Git, and an IDE or code editor such as Visual Studio Code will be needed for various hands-on exercises.
- Basic knowledge of web-based front-end development will be instrumental in helping you create, test, and demo an app. You don’t need to be a UX expert; this course is primarily about understanding Holochain itself.
- Good collaborative and interpersonal skills; this is a co-learning environment.
Whether you use these tools regularly or need to brush up a little, get your application in today and take the next step in your distributed tech learning journey.
“Super fun and useful! Definitely exceeded my expectations. The course is super grounding and down to earth — getting all the way down to DHT ops and all the way up to capability claims.” —Anon
Find your project, get hired
Our goal is to grow the available pool of Holochain developers and support the projects building with us. We want to bring you into our ecosystem, building connections with the Holochain team and active dev community. Your peer cohort is just the start of weaving this social web.
“I can't think of another class or training I've been in where I enjoy the community as much as I have in this class. I have learned so much from the questions and side conversations.” —Patrick Winfield
We are offering a range of scholarships to help increase access for qualified students of all backgrounds. Please don’t hesitate let us know what you need in order to join us at the training so we can start a conversation and direct our scholarship funds appropriately.
