Work On Blockchain (WOB) is a hiring platform that helps bring together companies looking for talent and technologists passionate about working in the blockchain space. Think Tinder, but way more productive. The perfect match!

WOB’s mission is also education and teaching blockchain technology to both experienced developers and beginners in the space. We have hosted over a 100 blockchain workshops and bootcamps teaching developers in person, held in several countries and over 8000 attendees (not including conferences and hackathons). We’re very passionate about and proud of the work we’ve done.

All of the workshops are free to attend and are an amazing way of connecting with people in the blockchain space and building a network of professionals and valuable contacts and friendships. Our supported 10-week cryptocurrencies course attracted over 500 developers alone.

We recently held our very first workshop focusing on EOSIO blockchain technology and writing smart contracts. Hosted by Imperial College in London, the event was a huge success, with over 50 attendees and lots more on the waiting list. In the course of the EOS workshop, developers learned how to create their own unique tokens and how to exchange them — giving them an idea of how a real-world blockchain solution using EOS would function.

Another one of our amazing successes was the Zero Knowledge Proof developer workshop we organized together with Extropy.io and teamed up with The Zcash Foundation, Clearmatics, Aztec Protocol, Artos Systems and applied researchers. Along with a mini-hackathon as a part of the event, it played a big role in further creating a global developer community centred around blockchain, zero knowledge proofs, security and cryptography.

Last July, we held our first workshop together with Extropy.io focusing on Quorum, an open-source, enterprise-grade blockchain platform that allows for private transactions. We teamed up with J.P. Morgan (who designed the platform) and organized a very well-received workshop — a venue at King’s College London packed with developers eager to learn! Last July, we also held our very first Smart Contract Security workshop together with UCL Centre for Blockchain Technologies with the support from Extropy.io, ChainSecurity and researchers in the field of security.

A unique aspect of all of our workshops and bootcamps are the Q&A sessions during and after the events. This gives developers the chance to ask any questions they might have about the whole process and get clear answers and examples they would have otherwise found difficult getting elsewhere.

After each workshop, the attendees gather at a local pub or restaurant for some relaxing, networking and chit-chat. Not your average run-of-the-mill workshop where everyone heads home after the day.

We are excited about our expansion to help more developers build the blockchain future. Our current workshops include:

  1. 2-day blockchain developer bootcamp
  2. Full-day Tezos workshop
  3. Full-day EOSIO workshop
  4. Full-day Smart contract security workshop
  5. Full-day Advanced Ethereum under the hood EVM workshop
  6. Full-day Ethereum upgradeable smart contracts workshop
  7. Full-day Ethereum enterprise blockchain workshop
  8. Full-day Hyperledger Fabric workshop
  9. Full-day Decentralized Exchanges workshop
  10. Full-day Zero Knowledge Proof workshop
  11. Full-day project based workshop

All FREE for technologists and made possible to our awesome workshop team and our education partners! Our workshop team is now 25 strong.
