Hey there! Greetings and welcome back to my page! As you may have noticed, this post is a bit of a departure from my usual content format. However, I'm excited to shift gears for a moment and share with you the newly launched blockchain course by Patrick Collins. In this post, I'll be diving into what the course covers, what you can expect to learn, and why it's a must-take for anyone interested in blockchain development. So, let's dive right in!
Are you interested in learning more about blockchain development and becoming a professional smart contract developer? Then look no further than Chainlink Labs’ Patrick Collins' Ultimate 30-hour Blockchain Development Course using the Foundry framework. In this blog post, we'll delve into the reasons why you should consider taking this course.
Firstly, it's important to note that Patrick Collins has been creating end-to-end data dump passion projects and educational courses on web3 for the past three years and more. This experience has allowed him to create the most advanced, beginner-to-hero course on solidity and blockchain development ever created. Whether you're a veteran in the field or new to blockchain, this course will likely provide valuable insights and new ways to code.
One of the biggest selling points of this course is the use of the Foundry framework. Foundry is quickly becoming the preferred smart contract development framework due to its speed and reliability. It's also 100% based on Solidity, meaning you don't need to learn another language as you're creating your smart contracts. Additionally, it's about 10 times faster than other frameworks, making it the top choice for smart contract auditors.
What to expect from this course
But the new Foundry Course can be thought of as the third installment, providing learners with even more tools and knowledge to succeed in the industry.
Speaking of what to expect from this course, this 30-hour course is designed to give you a comprehensive understanding of blockchain development, smart contracts, solidity, ERC20s, FullStack web3 dapps, decentralized finance (DeFi), Chainlink, Ethereum, upgradable smart contracts, DAOs, aave, IPFS, and more. Here's what you can expect to learn from this course:
Core fundamentals of how blockchains work and why smart contracts are important
Solidity Fundamentals — the primary language used to write smart contracts
Working with Remix - a web-based integrated development environment (IDE) that allows developers to write, test, and deploy smart contracts.
A crowdfunding web3 decentralized kick-starter project - Fund Me
AI Prompting and Foundry Simple Storage
How to create customized NFTs and ERC20 tokens
Testing, tooling, and common smart contract design patterns
Upgradeability and advanced concepts like proxies
DeFi and protocols like Aave
Everything you need to know about “backend” smart contract development
