All About DevCamp

DevCamp is Back! ... and it's still Free!

Learn how to build decentralized, scalable applications with Holochain! Our next session of the six week, volunteer-run online Holochain Developer training is starting in September 2021.


September 2021

Due to overwhelming demand (700+ applicants!) we've shifted the Dev Camp from a June to September start date. More detailed information will be shared directly with everyone who applies.

Who is it for?

In this DevCamp we’ll be stepping through a lot of code, so we particularly want to hear from developers who:

  • have decentralized app ideas and are looking for an appropriate platform & framework;
  • want to try Rust but don’t have an interesting project to use it in;
  • have been playing with blockchain, but realised its limitations;
  • want to learn about architecting and designing decentralized, scalable systems.

What will we be working on?

During DevCamp 8 we’re going to be building a multiplayer game: “Tragedy of the Holocommons”

We will bring every economist’s favorite game to life as a Holochain app! The heart of this game is a demonstration of consensus-seeking in an eventually consistent environment - a crucial part of building any decentralized application!

Of course, we’ll also cover all the other essential building blocks of a Holochain application, with little adjustments to make it more fun and cool!

Tech stack:

  • Rust (backend)
  • Lit (UI)

How does it work?

Each week we will host two live sessions that include live coding and Q&A. In these, we’ll cover:

  • Basics of Rust for Holochain development
  • Dev environment configuration
  • App architecture and data model
  • App building blocks
  • Holochain ecosystem overview/theory

All sessions will be recorded and posted. A dedicated Discord server and support calls will be set up for participants to connect across timezones.

Cost: Free
