Hello everyone, it’s a pleasure to greet you all. On this occasion, I bring a proposal to conduct an intensive bootcamp consisting of 3 consecutive sessions in the city of Medellín. This city has been a strategic point for blockchain development in the region, which is why I believe it would be powerful for us to make this bootcamp a reality in order to showcase the Astar Network brand and its technology. I am sharing the fully detailed proposal with you here:
Astar Network bootcamp by dotlabs()
dotlabs() is the largest blockchain developer community in Medellin, which seeks the professional growth of its members through free and quality education. We believe in equal opportunities and the transformative potential of education for the future of societies.
dotlabs() plans to create and conduct an intensive bootcamp of 3 continuous face-to-face sessions, which will cover the basics of Ink!, Substrate, and Polkadot, to reach a basic level of development. The main objective of this intensive bootcamp is to promote the brand, as well as its products and services in the city of Medellin. This will allow us to create traction on Astar Network and its ecosystem, which in turn will enable us to have a larger audience when conducting another learning event on behalf of the most famous and efficient parachain in the Polkadot ecosystem, Astar Network.
Objectives and Goals
Our goal is to inform and train developers about the Astar Network and its advantages in creating products and services on this network. Our objectives are divided into:
- Having a participation of more than 40 people (face-to-face and virtual).
- Creating at least one product that will be deployed on the test network.
- Expanding brand recognition in the city of Medellin.
- Promoting the adoption of the network through the use of its dApps.
- Delivering basic tools to build on the Astar Network.
Our greatest focus will be on promoting the network to observe an increase in its construction, an increase in the use of development tools, and an increase in visits to the Astar website.
The work plan is to carry out 3 continuous face-to-face sessions, starting on Saturday, May 6, and ending on Saturday, May 20. The first session is planned to clearly and broadly explain the basic peculiarities of the smart contract programming language Ink!, the Polkadot ecosystem, and blockchain tools. In the second session, we will cover the topic of Astar Network, how the blockchain chain works and its development ecosystem, and finally, we will create a dApp that allows us to tokenize digitized objects from the real world. This product will be deployed on the Astar Network. The points we will cover in this bootcamp are:
- Astar Network and its ecosystem
- Astar Network development tools: Faucets and tokens
- Polkadot.js and wallet creation
- Introduction to Ink!: fundamentals, features, and versions
- Local nodes for deployment
- Development tools in Visual Studio Code
- Smart Contract development
- Smart Contract Standards
- IPFS service on the Astar Network
- Creation of DApp on the Astar Network
To achieve the objectives of this program, we will have a professional workshop leader with experience in blockchain development on the Astar Network, who will facilitate the achievement of the proposed objectives, incurring the following expenses:
The plan is to impact and influence 40 attendees (30 in-person and 10 virtual) who, upon completing the bootcamp, will have the basic knowledge and necessary tools to start building on the Astar Network. This will contribute to the expansion of the network in Latin America, especially in the city of Medellin, which is committed to blockchain development. The expected results are:
- Number of hours of the bootcamp: +8
- Impacted attendees: +40
- Number of new users of Astar Network products: +20
- Amount of merchandise given: +30

In order to contribute to the growth of Astar Network in Latin America, dotlabs(), the largest blockchain developer community in Medellin, will carry out an intensive bootcamp consisting of 3 continuous sessions that will provide participants with the knowledge and tools necessary for building on the Astar Network and its ecosystem. This program will take place starting from Saturday, May 6th, and will end on Saturday, May 20th. The creation and implementation of this event incurs some expenses outlined in the above section. Finally, this bootcamp aims to create adoption and recognition of the Astar Network brand in the city of Medellin, which is highly committed to the development of blockchain technologies. Therefore, we are confident that we will contribute to the growth of Astar Network in this region.
On behalf of dotlabs(), we commit to carrying out this event with total professionalism and transparency, and we look forward to creating a strong and lasting relationship between both brands.
