Create a Solana Developer Curriculum

🧑‍🚀 Launch Solana/Rust Learners into Web3

Mission Budget: $8,000 USDC
Estimated Time: 6 Weeks
Available to: Public

🎯 Mission Objectives

Remember your jump from web2 to web3? We are going to make it better and easier at scale globally for web2 devs to make the same jump. You can be the key part of it!

We believe the future of the metaverse lies in the minds that build it — the developers of web3. Part game, part learning platform, Metacrafters invites you to a world of wonder, growth and possibility. We aspire to break barriers, create communities, and put power back into the hands of the creators. We are relentless in our pursuit to change the way we learn, connect and flourish via blockchain — so developers can access a world-class web3 education with immediate earning & employment opportunities in the metaverse. We already have 1,000+ web2 devs signed up for our waitlist of courses!

We are looking for someone passionate about teaching with experience building on Solana using Rust and Anchor. Without you, we can’t help other devs jump into web3! As part of an awesome curriculum team at Metacrafters, you will be responsible for designing intermediate and advanced Solana courses. You will work with other developer educators, curriculum developers, and course talent to build amazing learning experiences.

🛠️ Scope of Work:

  • Building curriculum focused on intermediate and advanced Solana skills including:
    • Developing course outlines with learning objectives for modules and lessons
    • Writing text for lessons with highlighted key terms linked to definitions
    • Writing or finding code snippets to demonstrate lesson objectives
    • Designing module and lesson assessments (quizzes, practice problems, and projects)
  • Using learner feedback to improve lessons
  • Reviewing curriculum of other Metacrafter educators

😍 Ideal Talent Profile:

  • You have 1-3 years of experience working with Solana or low level or distributed systems using Rust and Anchor
  • Previous experience working on successful Solana Projects
  • Technical knowledge about security and Solana programs
  • You have a passion of nerding out and teaching others about web3
  • Bonus: You can build smart contracts in other languages, like Solidity.

Note: This Mission is funded by Metacrafters, who will retain all IP around this project. Their team will work closely with you throughout the process to provide clarity, examples, and additional support where required.
