Am I understanding correctly the total amount of lecture time is 4 hours? Yes.
The total budget and the grant amount are not the same, why is there a difference? Apologize, total budget should be 25k.
There are 7 topics in the lecture design, will multiple be bundled in one lecture? 1st one is crypto 101, 2nd to 4th will be focusing on technical aspect. Depends on how well the students understand each topics, we may reduce or add topics.
Is The Graph integrated in the lecture design? If so, how? We will promote The Gragh foundation, but may not have time to cover the integration. However, we can add a session for it, if needed.
Could you break down the costs of the instructor fees and the networking event(s). See detail in the budget section in the google doc attached.
What is the NextHuddle launch fee? We launch our online bootcamp using NextHuddle. As a service, they charge us service fee. https://www.nexthuddle.com/
Could you give examples of hand-on exercise participants of the bootcamp would be doing? The goal is for each student to successfully launch smart contract by end of the class. For details, Bhabani will be able to provide next week, when he’s back from travelling.
Will the lectures/slide decks/PowerPoints be open source? Yes, we will share the slides the lecture after the bootcamp.
Is this bootcamp exclusive to female software engineers? Yes, that’s the intention, however, depends on the signups, we may open it up to all software engineers.
Thank you for your time! Let me know if you need anything else.
I’m voting NO, mainly because of the general design addressed to specific group and label ‘for women’. We are the welcoming and inclusive Community that is why this kinds of labels, regardless of the chosen audience, whether it is only for women, men, or LGBTQ people, do not come along with our values.
I’m also not accepting as a solution to invite male/other participants if there will be place left. In my opinion the project needs re-designing.
