Learn to Build on Ethereum.

ETH Summer is a virtual "learning month" for technical undergraduates who are interested in learning and building on Ethereum. During the program, you'll experiment with crypto systems and ship a project of your choice with the help of mentors from the Ethereum ecosystem.

This program is brought to you by ETH University and made possible by the support of Ethereum Foundation.

Program period: 2 August 2021 - 27 August 2021.

Program Overview

The purpose of this program is to help you learn about Ethereum and related decentralized technologies in a self-driven way. While all sorts of discussion will be welcome, the primary focus of this program is the technology behind Ethereum and blockchains more broadly, rather than price speculation.

Every week, you will spend ~15-20 hours learning and building on crypto. Most of these will be unstructured and asynchronous learning time where you will be able to dive deep into the space.

As a participant, you can expect...

  • Weekly ~45m group office hours with your mentor: time for you to ask questions about things you've read or been working on, and to brainstorm ideas for a project.

  • Talks by figures in the Ethereum ecosystem twice a week

  • Occasional group hangouts and social events on gather.town

  • Discussion groups led by program mentors or guest speakers

  • Workshops run by various specialists in the ETH ecosystem

  • Project mentorship from preeminent builders in the space
