HackQuest Launches Solana Learning Track for Aspiring Web3 Developers, supported by Solana Foundation MCM

Atlanta, GA, March 26th, 2024, HackQuest

HackQuest, an all-in-one Web3 developer education platform, partnered with Solana Foundation MCM and launched the Solana Learning Track.

Dedicated to bridging the knowledge gap in the fast-evolving Web3 space, Solana Learning Track is structured around Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles, which feature concise, engaging modules and culminate in practical quests for learners at every level. This partnership between HackQuest and Solana Foundation MCM represents a stride towards enhancing Web3 developer education and building a supportive community for both novice enthusiasts and experienced Web2 developers keen on exploring the Solana ecosystem.

Solana Learning Track: A Journey from Zero to Hero for Aspiring Solana Developers

The Solana Learning Track provides a comprehensive, beginner-friendly learning experience that embodies the 'zero to hero' concept across five distinct courses. Enriched with interactive quizzes, it engages learners from the outset in Solana's foundational principles. The curriculum also covers the syntax of Rust and introduces the Anchor framework, while including hands-on experience through guided projects, where learners have the opportunity to apply their skills by building applications such as a Bulls and Cows game in Rust, a counter, an NFT on Solana, and more.

Incorporated with Universal Design for Learning principles, Solana Learning Track offers succinct, five-minute modules culminating in engaging quests for learners of all skill levels. Users earn a proof of completion certificate co-issued by HackQuest and Solana Foundation MCM in the form of an on-chain Soul-bound Token (SBT), which can be minted following the completion of Solana Learning Track and deployment of projects to Solana Mainnet.

In addition to technical skills, participants unlock a rich offering of post-learning supports, including hackathons, co-learning camps, boot camps, meet-ups, closed-door workshops, and blogs, aimed at making the journey to Web3 fun and interactive. Through these initiatives, HackQuest and Solana Foundation MCM have actively formed a community that connects participants with the vibrant Web3 developer network and supports them in building lasting relationships within the ecosystem.

The platform also features a personal dashboard for tracking individual progress and goals, alongside a mission center that gamifies the Solana learning process through daily quests and milestones. Users can also create a comprehensive Web3 passport on their User Profile, linking GitHub, Wallet, and social media, while the built-in IDE streamlines project deployment directly to the Solana mainnet or testnet, bypassing traditional setup hurdles faced by developers in Web3.
