Saudi Arabia To Host Blockchain Bootcamp, Partners Ethereum Startup
Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) in Saudi Arabia has teamed up with ConsenSys, a cryptocurrency development studio, to host a “blockchain bootcamp” as part of the kingdom’s efforts to support technological development.
The bootcamp is part of the ministry’s efforts to develop national cadres in future technologies, according to the ministry.
The recent three-day bootcamp introduced participants to the workings of blockchain technology from both a business and strategy perspective, its applications and features. Technologists from several entities received in-depth training on how to create a development environment, build decentralized applications (dApp) with Ethereum smart contracts and integrate the dApps with web applications.
