Our goal at Open Source Community Africa is to educate and help African tech talents get started with open-source in different ways while maximizing the opportunities available to grow their respective careers. The entire community we're building is to ensure we uphold this goal and build the Next Billion Creators. To further support our community, we have teamed up with Polygon on an exclusive 8-week mentor-led program for you to take the next step in Web3 development.

Introducing the Bootcamp

The BootCamp will last eight weeks, with applications starting on the 26th of September, 2022. There will be a Beginner and Mastery track; the top three Beginner projects will get bounties of $5,000, $3,000, and $2,000, respectively, while Mastery projects will get bounties of $10,000, $7,000, and $5,000.

Conclusion

Suppose you're applying from the OSCA Community and you're a member of our Discord Server. You should join the #polygon-africa-bootcamp channel to communicate and converse with other community members joining the Bootcamp. Hopefully, you can all help each other as you learn, build teams, and build projects together in the Bootcamp. And as always, the OSCA core team will be there to answer any questions you might have about the program 😉.
