An Ethereum blockchain development program by ConsenSys with the support of One Million Arab Coders was announced and is set to launch pretty soon. The 12-week program is designed to help young Arabs develop their coding skills and knowledge of blockchain technology.
ConsenSys and One Million Arab Coders are committed to educating and equipping young Arabs with the necessary technical and programming skills needed for the future. Not only that, but ConsenSys is also on the lookout for new talents and will be granting employment opportunities to top performers of the program. Lina Hediah, Director, ConsenSys MENA commented, “By providing the Arab world with access to programming courses and high-level
expertise, we are empowering the participants, both students, and tutors, with a skillset imperative to the successful technological transformation of Dubai and the region, thus making a significant impact.”
The One Million Arab Coders initiative was first launched in October 2017 by His Highness Sheikh Rashid Al Maktoum and aims to provide the necessary training tools in coding, giving ConsenSys the opportunity to nurture and help Arab talent build the skills they need to
pursue careers in technology by becoming proficient in coding.
