“Web3bridge Courses, Trainings Are Designed To Create World Class Developers”

Web3bridge founder, Awosika Israel Ayodeji, has spoken in an exclusive interview with Vanguard about the mission of the blockchain development firm, the courses and training programs it offers and how it plans to expand and reach more aspiring blockchain developers in Nigeria and Africa.

Web3bridge is committed to bridging the knowledge gap in Africa when it comes to developing blockchain solutions, as the continent lags behind in this area. The firm runs a free 16-week, cohort-based onsite and online training program for vetted participants, offering a minimum of 54 hours per week class to train Ethereum developers within the time frame of the cohort.

Web3bridge provides updated curriculum that meets the recent updates in the Ethereum blockchain space. The firm offers courses in programming language training such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React NodeJs, Golang and Solidity.

The founder said, “In the last three years, we have directly and indirectly worked with over ten (10) blockchain clubs in higher institutions and we are supporting and working with existing ones to set up more campus clubs. We believe this will be a good ground to expand our reach. We are also improving the quality of the program and the alumni so we can continue to benefit from word of mouth publicity and we are also working with few partners in Nigeria and other African countries to expand our reach.”

Web3bridge alumni have participated in and won global Hackathons and work with top blockchain companies where they contribute very resourcefully. The firm provides blockchain development services and offers talents to teams looking to hire developers.

The biggest challenges faced by Web3bridge in running the program were the lack of interest from existing developers in learning blockchain development and funding, “My advice to someone interested in starting a career in blockchain development is that the best time to start is now. Learning blockchain development like any other learning requires time, commitment and sacrifice so they should make up their mind to give it what it takes. Web3bridge runs two cohorts in a year and we are open to working with anyone with interest. Our community is also open to supporting everyone that is interested and needs help while learning.”

The founder is a graduate of Home Economics and Hotel management Education from Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijebu-ode. After graduation, he started working as a freelance researcher. In 2017 a few of his friends who were in multi level marketing and also trading FX would usually go to his house to trade, “I remember all of us sitting on the floor trading and I had to open an exchange wallet. October 2017, a friend told me about cryptocurrency airdrop (free money) and we created a Whatsapp group to teach about Blockchain, and I became drawn to the technology since then.”
