TARI ONLINE UNIVERSITY IS FREE
TARI LABS, a contributor to Tari, the
South African-based blockchain protocol, has launched a free online university to help incubate open-source projects and train blockchain developers, both locally and globally. “Tari Labs University aims to become a go-to destination for easily-accessible learning material for blockchain, digital currency and digital assets, from beginner to advanced level,” said Tari Lab’s senior contributor, Cayle Sharrock. By doing this, it hopes to ease a growing shortage of skilled blockchain and open source developers. Tari Labs was launched earlier this year by a consortium co-founded by maverick South African blockchain and cryptocurrency expert Riccardo “fluffy pony” Spagni, with a specific goal of redefining the way we work with digital assets – like ingame items, digital collectables, concert tickets and loyalty points. The core Tari Labs development team is based in Johannesburg, in line with Spagni’s view that much of the talent needed already exists in South Africa. Sharrock said the Tari Labs University will play an important role in upskilling potential candidates.
