Course overview

What you'll learn

During this course we will practice:

  • perceiving web 3 in the context of human history
  • using dApps in the NEAR ecosystem
  • reading contract code in Rust and AssemblyScript

The goal of this course is to introduce anyone who is interested in learning more about NEAR without adding too much technical detail -- just enough, we hope, to be useful and build confidence in thinking, using and speaking about NEAR, and without being technically overwhelming

There are no prerequisites for this course except your interest and attention.



Exploring Web 3

Learn to read (smart?) contracts in Rust and AssemblyScript, there’s really nothing to it.

Using dApps on NEAR

Build confidence in thinking, using and speaking about NEAR

Reading Smart Contracts

Companies Phone Directory

We made a company directory in a team of 3, it was the first time we worked with NEAR, it has 3 methods, one for registring a company and just needs the creator, name of the company and phone number. One to show all of them, and one for searching by name. We made the demo on live.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does this cost?

Nothing, the course is absolutely free. The only thing you pay is your attention

Do I need to be a software developer to take this course?

Yes, and it won’t be easy – we’ll be moving quickly, no joke

I have zero time for all this. Can I just binge on some deep work on my own?

Hell yes! Contact us to discuss your future project

Do you care if I cheat?

No, in fact cheating is encouraged. Let’s get one thing straight: if you’re serious about learning, the fastest way from here to there is to meet people, ask questions, look at some answers, look at even more answers, copy some examples, break things and finally, if you’re lucky, learn something new.

As long as you’re honest about what you’re doing, you’re always welcome here.

Just don’t take credit for others people’s work because that’s lame

Do I need a Mac?

MacOS and Linux will be the easiest operating systems to use.

Windows may prove challenging but if you’re ok with that, please join us. You should install WSL before we meet since we’ll be using NodeJS applications like NEAR CLI

How do I know if I’m winning?

There’s no such thing as winning here because we’re all lost. Welcome, friend

When moon?!

Please don’t

NEAR is secure enough to manage high value assets like money, assets and  identity while being performant and affordable enough to make things useful for everyday people.

Technically speaking, NEAR is a layer 1 smart contract platform (like Ethereum but cheaper and faster) that scales by parallelizing storage and compute using a technique called “sharding”.
