Grant ID: 86871ddft
Web3Bridge is launching a comprehensive 16-week boot camp aimed at empowering developers in their transition to web3. This program offered both virtually and in-person, focuses on equipping developers with the necessary skills. The boot camp encompasses technical training, project development, and pitching opportunities.
Participants will receive hands-on experience in building web3 dApps and will specifically integrate The Graph into their projects. Also, the program includes two sessions where I’ll initially do a technical workshop that explains how subgraphs work and the second session will be a live workshop building a subgraph. I also intend to reach out to members from BuildersDAO to assist with additional technical support either virtually or in-person during the second session as participants would need help for seamless integration when using The Graph.
This initiative aligns with The Graph’s mission to onboard high-quality developers into the community (AdvocateDAO or BuildersDAO), thereby contributing to the growth and adoption of The Graph within the broader web3 ecosystem.

How far along are you?:
Since opening the registration link (November 8th, 2023), 254 students have registered, and the boot camp launched on January 8th.
Why did you pick this idea to work on? Do you have domain expertise in this area? How do you know people need what you’re making?:
Web3Bridge has made impactful strides over four years with a track record of leading 9 cohorts, introducing over 4,000 individuals to Web3, and contributing significantly to the open-source community. I chose to pursue this initiative because of its potential to bridge a critical gap in the developer community. The transition from web2 to web3 can be daunting for developers due to the complex nature of the web3 ecosystem. This Cohort X Bootcamp is currently aligned with The Graph’s mission of potentially onboarding more high-quality subgraph developers into the community. My domain expertise in this area stems from hosting multiple virtual and in-person events, including workshops specifically centered around how subgraphs access and retrieve blockchain data. Also, I have conducted practical live-building sessions demonstrating the building of subgraphs on Ethereum.
What’s new about what you’re making? What substitutes do people resort to because it doesn’t exist yet (or they don’t know about it)?:
The innovative aspect of Cohort X lies in its comprehensive approach to guiding developers through the intricacies of the complete web3 stack and also specifically focusing on integrating The Graph into their projects. This boot camp aims to fill the knowledge gap by offering a structured curriculum, hands-on guidance, and live technical support, providing developers with a holistic understanding and practical skills in leveraging The Graph within their projects.
What’s your vision for how your project will impact The Graph and/or web3?:
This project significantly impacts The Graph and the broader web3 ecosystem by fostering a thriving community of skilled developers proficient in utilizing subgraphs to access blockchain data. This boot camp aims to enhance the adoption of The Graph, cultivate a community of high-quality developers, and elevate the skill sets of developers transitioning from web2 to web3.
How will you measure success?:
How will you measure success?
Success will be measured through several key performance indicators (KPIs) that reflect the impact and effectiveness of the boot camp:
Participant Engagement: Tracking the number of developers enrolled and their active participation throughout the program.
Integration Metrics: Assessing the number of web3 dApps developed during the boot camp that successfully integrate The Graph, indicating practical usage.
Feedback and Surveys: Gathering participant feedback regarding the program’s effectiveness, content relevance, and overall satisfaction.
What milestones will you achieve in the coming weeks/months, with or without the grant?:
In the upcoming weeks, with or without the grant, the milestones for the Web3Bridge Cohort Developer Bootcamp initiative include:
Curriculum Development: Conclude the development of the comprehensive curriculum encompassing technical training and project development modules.
Participant Recruitment & Selection: Launch promotional campaigns and outreach strategies to attract and enroll developers for the boot camp, and conduct the two stages of assessment to select qualified students for the boot camp.
Partnership Strengthening: Solidify collaborations with community partners and potential collaboration with the AdvocatesDAO and BuildersDAO to ensure seamless technical support and resources for participants.
Program Preparation: Assemble necessary resources, materials, and technical infrastructure required for the successful execution of both virtual and in-person sessions.

Web3bridge bootcamp has enjoyed sponsorship and collaboration from Base, Polygon, Starkware, Cartesi, Filecoin & The Ethereum Foundation
Can you share any information about current/past web3 experience?:
Since 2021, I’ve been actively involved in building the decentralized web with The Graph as my entry portal into web3. I’m a proud Advocate&DAO member for the GraphAdvocatesDAO, DAO member of The Graph BuildersDAO, and Community Manager for Africa. I contribute to a vibrant community where individuals and teams are contributing in their respective capacities, spearheading a data revolution, and ushering in a new era of decentralization.
Why are you interested in contributing to The Graph and/or web3?:
The evidence of my passion for web3 and The Graph is visible considering I’m an active advocate consistently dedicating myself to solving problems and assisting fellow community members or web3 enthusiasts. My conviction about The Graph’s critical role as a foundational component drives me to continuously seek opportunities to contribute and make a meaningful impact. Blockchain technology represents a paradigm shift towards decentralization, transparency, and user empowerment aligning perfectly with my belief in a more equitable and user-centric internet.
