Do you take pleasure in fixing attention-grabbing and difficult issues? Are you interested by getting concerned on the most foundational stage of the Ethereum protocol?
The Protocol Support Team (EF) is happy to announce that functions at the moment are being accepted for the third cohort of the Ethereum Protocol Fellowship (previously Core Developer Apprenticeship Program (CDAP))!
With the Merge closing in (58750000000000000000000 🥳), Ethereum core builders are trying ahead to the subsequent steps within the protocol’s improvement and there’s a want for certified and dedicated individuals to assist create an more and more highly effective and strong Ethereum community.
Enter the Ethereum Protocol Fellowship.
What is the Ethereum Protocol Fellowship (EPF)?
The EPF is a program designed to onboard builders to the method via which protocol improvement occurs. It is a chance to dive deep into the protocol and be taught whereas additionally working intently with others on the identical studying trajectory in addition to the core improvement neighborhood.
Core protocol improvement isn’t straightforward work, however it’s attention-grabbing, difficult, and rewarding. Unfortunately, this work additionally has a really massive barrier to entry. It requires a excessive diploma of fluency within the precise protocols themselves. It requires a deep understanding of many various engineering ideas. It requires glorious written and verbal communication abilities. The intention of this program is to offer a better onramp for getting previous these obstacles, and to offer the preliminary assist and steerage to launch you into working facet by facet with core devs.
EPF has beforehand hosted two profitable cohorts. In that point, previous cohort members have:
- Worked on an alternate methodology of documenting and specifying the Ethereum protocol.
- Researched how we are able to modify or take away the SELFDESTRUCT opcode
- Helped construct ZKSync
- Built out new peer-to-peer networks for the Portal Network.
- Wrote their very own implementation of the EVM
- 10 cohort alumni now work full-time on core protocol improvement and 5 others work in adjoining areas of the business.
Have a Real Impact
Core protocol improvement is a key position in caring for and bettering the multi-billion greenback Ethereum protocol; a protocol that we consider will play a key position in making a extra truthful and equitable future for humanity.
