Lumos Labs, a Web3 innovation enabler that aims to help Web2 and Web3 developers and enthusiasts make a smooth transition into Web3 by upskilling them, has announced the launch of Lumos Academy, an educational platform for Web2.0 and Web3.0 developers.
According to an official statement, this initiative is for individuals interested in the Web 3.0 ecosystem who understand computer languages. Reportedly, the program will build their knowledge around Web 3.0, crypto, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and blockchain through tutorials, exercises, and hackathons, along with incentives as personalized NFTs.
Commenting on the latest development, Founder of Lumos Labs, Kaavya Prasad, said:
We look forward to announcing the Lumos Academy platform which aims to represent a milestone in our commitment to empower Web3.0 developers. Through our learning environment, exercises, and real-world projects, we aim to nurture India’s developer community and enable them to impact the blockchain industry globally.
It’s believed that the curriculum emphasizes three areas: Web 3.0 fundamentals, cryptocurrencies, and NFTs. From covering the basics through the “Intro to Web3” course, including decentralized application (dApp) creation, smart contract interaction, and transactions to chain specific courses, the curriculum aims to focus on simplifying dApp creation along with providing resources to allow developers to build on blockchains such as Ethereum, Polygon, Glitch, Internet Computers, among others, using tools such as Truffle, React and Solidity. These courses seem to have been structured to help developers gain experience and start their journey into developing their blockchain applications.
Lumos Labs works with note-worthy Web3 players like Polkadot, Binance, Æternity, NEAR, Polygon, the State Government of Telangana and more to conduct 50+ innovation programmes to encourage developers to build. The company claims that it has a community of 60,000 developers and, to collaborate with renowned players in the blockchain industry has disbursed over $10 million in grants.
