We plan to host a 3-day Subgraph hackathon event at the end of our boot camp in March to create an avenue for our community members to learn about various blockchain protocols while applying their knowledge in real-world settings. It will serve to help our web2 developers better understand the workings of the blockchain ecosystem by creating and extending subgraphs to gain hands-on knowledge that will help in their transition into the web3 career space.
