Educating developers, on and off campus 

Polygon began in India. Our Roadshow is a homecoming, a way to celebrate everyone in the country who has contributed to Polygon Technology’s success. We believe the subcontinent will bring the next wave of blockchain builders and adopters. Nearly 11% of global Web3 talent lives in India, making it the third-largest market globally, according to a recent report from NASSCOM. 

So over the next six months, Polygon will team up with Reskill to partner with faculty from 50 campuses across the country to deliver top-notch, hands-on Web3 education for budding engineers. In cohorts of 50 to 100 students at every university, the Polygon Campus Training Program will get students up to speed on blockchain development. By the end of the course, they will have the chance to show off their first dApps at micro-hackathons. 

We believe emerging blockchain tech will help tackle some of the biggest challenges facing the world today. But to do so, developers need accessible, hands-on education.

To that end, we’re partnering with Pesto Tech to help seasoned Web2 developers transition to Web3. Pesto helps companies hire remote developers worldwide. All participants in the Polygon x Pesto partnership will have an early chance to be synced to a company launching on Polygon. We hope to create a network of reliable, trusted developers who’ve been trained in the best practices of Web3.

This is how the future of the internet is made: student by student, developer by developer, building vibrant communities at the geographical beating heart of the new web.
