NEAR Academy Calls for Community Contributors
NEAR Academy is currently the most simple and quick entry point for Web developers into crypto. The course it offers was specifically designed to provide an easy transition to developers coming from a Web2 reality to get started on NEAR and begin their journey on the path of innovation.
NEAR Academy is completely open-source, from the graphics to the contract and backend. This guarantees a continuous improvement of the material as well as the quality of the content. NEAR Academy thrives thanks to community contributors; it thus welcomes them and rewards them for their dedication and work.
In the long term, in about a year or so, we envision that NEAR Academy will be handled entirely by the community. This is a model that has worked well with Ocean Academy, which now is an independent organization within the ecosystem made of community members for community members. If anyone is looking to get involved, please get in touch! -Laurent from NEAR Academy
Who Can Become a Contributor and How They Can Get Involved?
NEAR Academy does not discriminate against possible contributors and accepts everyone that wishes to get involved. There are currently two areas that contributors can work on based on their skills and experience. One area deals with the material of the course from a less technical perspective, another instead deals with contracts and explaining how they are working from a technical point of view.
No technical background is required in order to become a contributor, only a clear vision of the content to create is required:
You don’t have to be necessarily technical to contribute to the Academy, all you need is a clear plan on what to do and how to execute. I would strongly recommend getting in contact to understand what the priorities are. -Gary from NEAR Academy
