This virtual Bootcamp will allow you to start your path in the development of decentralized applications using Algorand, taking advantage of its native technical characteristics.

All the content will be in English and it is totally free, so if you are a developer and you ask yourself: Why should I be interested in learning about Algorand and participating in the Bootcamp?

● Algorand has different SDK's to help you with the building process in different languages and with extensive documentation.

● The costs and speed for testing on Algorand are extremely low, which will allow you to learn and test without friction.
