CAPE TOWN – Tari Labs, a contributor to Tari, the South African-based blockchain protocol, has launched a free online university to help incubate open source projects and train blockchain developers, both locally and globally.
"Tari Labs University aims to become a go-to destination for easily-accessible learning material for blockchain, digital currency and digital assets, from beginner to advanced level", said Tari Lab’s senior contributor, Cayle Sharrock.
By doing this, it hopes to ease a growing shortage of skilled blockchain and open source developers.
“The more blockchain experts we can help develop, the better it is for the ecosystem as a whole,” said Sharrock. “From the start, Tari Labs has been all about giving talented people the chance to develop their abilities. The Tari Labs University is a natural next step in sharing knowledge and learning from the community in turn.”
Tari Labs was launched earlier this year by a consortium co-founded by maverick South African blockchain and cryptocurrency expert Riccardo “fluffy pony” Spagni, with a specific goal of redefining the way we work with digital assets – like in-game items, digital collectables, concert tickets and loyalty points.
