Mastering Web3 with Waves

We are on the threshold of transitioning to the next generation of the internet, Web 3.0, which will be a more transparent and largely decentralized version of the web. To survive and prosper in this new decentralized environment, you’ll need to master new skills, such as building decentralized applications (dApps).

Mastering Web 3.0 with Waves is a very practical course. Upon completing it, you’ll be able to build your very first decentralized application (dApp) using the Ride programming language and the Waves blockchain. Over the course of six weeks, you’ll learn about the evolution of the Web, digital assets, distributed ledgers, consensus algorithms, and cryptocurrencies. You’ll also become familiar with HTML, JavaScript, Git, GitHub, smart contracts and smart assets, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Finally, you’ll create your own project, the Coupon Bazaar dApp. Meanwhile, the course doesn’t require substantial developing experience and is just as suitable for beginner developers as it is for those who have been developing regular apps for years. Each of the six weekly modules includes video tutorials, quizzes of 14 to 18 questions, and practical assignments. Sign up for the course and learn vital Web 3.0 skills!
