Do you get pleasure from fixing attention-grabbing and difficult issues? Are you curious about getting concerned on the most foundational degree of the Ethereum protocol?
The Protocol Help Group (EF) is worked up to announce that purposes are actually being accepted for the third cohort of the Ethereum Protocol Fellowship (previously Core Developer Apprenticeship Program [CDAP])!
With the Merge closing in (58750000000000000000000 🥳), Ethereum core builders are trying ahead to the following steps within the protocol’s improvement and there’s a want for certified and dedicated folks to assist create an more and more highly effective and sturdy Ethereum community.
Enter the Ethereum Protocol Fellowship.
What’s the Ethereum Protocol Fellowship (EPF)?
The EPF is a program designed to onboard builders to the method via which protocol improvement occurs. It is a chance to dive deep into the protocol and study whereas additionally working carefully with others on the identical studying trajectory in addition to the core improvement group.
Core protocol improvement isn’t straightforward work, however it’s attention-grabbing, difficult, and rewarding. Sadly, this work additionally has a really massive barrier to entry. It requires a excessive diploma of fluency within the precise protocols themselves. It requires a deep understanding of many various engineering ideas. It requires wonderful written and verbal communication expertise. The intention of this program is to supply a neater onramp for getting previous these limitations, and to supply the preliminary help and steerage to launch you into working aspect by aspect with core devs.
EPF has beforehand hosted two profitable cohorts. In that point, previous cohort members have:
- Labored on an alternate technique of documenting and specifying the Ethereum protocol.
- Researched how we are able to modify or take away the SELFDESTRUCT opcode
- Helped construct ZKSync
- Constructed out new peer-to-peer networks for the Portal Community.
- Wrote their very own implementation of the EVM
- 10 cohort alumni now work full-time on core protocol improvement and 5 others work in adjoining areas of the business.
Have a Actual Influence
Core protocol improvement is a key position in caring for and enhancing the multi-billion greenback Ethereum protocol; a protocol that we consider will play a key position in making a extra honest and equitable future for humanity.
