Blockstack, a computing network and ecosystem focused on privacy, has recently revealed a partnership with a space called Lambda School, a Chicago-based coding boot camp.
Now, anyone participating in Lambda School can learn to code Blockstack applications and even get paid on a monthly basis for these applications via the platform’s App Mining Program, reports CoinTelegraph.
This news comes to us via a press release, where Lambda School CEO Austen Allred spoke about the matter, stating that Blockstack:
“Gives Lambda School students a direct path for gaining real-world development experience while earning additional income for their work.”
From there Muneeb Ali, the CEO of Blockstack, had said that the App Mining Program is “the sort of program I wish was available to me when I was a student.”
On top of this, the platform wants to provide students with the tools required for quality control and more. For example, dApps will undergo specific reviews and testing methods on top of other quality processes to ensure they’re the best they can be.
That, and the platform will ensure a launch on Product Hunt, alongside provide marketing insights via Awario, an “awareness reviewer.”
Overall, thanks to this partnership, we’ll see more student developers heading out of school with the ability to not only build a product but will know how to ship it and market it as well.
Who knows? Maybe we’ll start to see some Lamda School students’ cryptocurrencies trading on a cryptocurrency exchange.
