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 28 - November 11, 2021

Due to overwhelming demand (1500+ applicants!) we pushed back the DevCamp dates from June to September. If you applied in May or June, you will receive an email regarding the status of your application.

We are continuing to accept new applications until September 25th.

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)
  • Svelte & 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
