Polkadot Blockchain Academy announced its fifth cohort in Singapore

The Polkadot Blockchain Academy (PBA), Polkadot’s (DOT) educational program, has announced the launch of its fifth cohort in Singapore set to begin on May 20, 2024, according to the most recent updates shared with Finbold on June 2. 

Known as a leading blockchain education platform, PBA is dedicated to nurturing developer talent and propelling forward the Polkadot ecosystem.

Its comprehensive program delves into both the theoretical foundations of blockchain technology and its practical applications, ensuring participants can gain a well-rounded understanding of the industry.

Polkadot’s fifth cohort

The latest cohort in Singapore builds upon the success of its predecessors, promising participants an immersive and enriching learning journey. 

Supported by a team of 18 seasoned instructors and industry veterans, students can look forward to quality instruction and personalized guidance throughout the duration of the program.

Spanning approximately 184 lecture hours, the upcoming cohort will furnish students with an in-depth comprehension of blockchain technology and the Polkadot platform itself. 

From foundational principles to advanced methodologies, the curriculum encompasses a diverse array of topics crucial for proficiency in blockchain development, key modules including Economics, Governance, Smart Contracts, and Polkadot-SDK.

Leveraging the dynamic Asian blockchain market

Pauline Cohen Vorms, CEO and Co-Founder of Polkadot Blockchain Academy, underscored the significance of the dynamic Asian blockchain market, particularly for Polkadot. 

She also emphasized the region’s pivotal role as the ideal setting for PBA’s new cohort, aiming to educate and cultivate a fresh wave of talent, stating:

“Asia is such a dynamic market for blockchain and especially for Polkadot. Some of our strongest projects, contributors, developers and founders are based in Asia. It’s an important region that is ideally suited to the establishment of PBA’s fifth cohort to educate, seed knowledge, and help graduate a new wave of talent.”

To further promote its ethos of democratization and inclusivity, PBA will also be leading a synchronous remote learning model, enabling students from across the globe to partake in more educational initiatives. 

The Academy’s commitment to excellence and dedication to fostering collaboration and learning positions it as a cornerstone of the burgeoning Polkadot ecosystem.
