This course is entirely remote. This course consists of one intro session, ten sessions of regular instruction, and a demo/guest speaker session for a total of twelve meetings. Synchronous class meetings will occur twice per week for six weeks, consisting of approximately 0.5 hours of instruction and 0.5 hours of activity each.

Student work in this course will be reviewed, but not graded, and the certificate of completion is not awarded contingent on any level of performance.

This course is not slow-moving. It starts with the basics but will be moving quickly.

Lessons will be recorded and uploaded to YouTube.


Students will complete a web3 project during this course. The planning for this project should start during topic 2, and project development should continue until topic 6, when the project should be ready for deployment and presentation before the class.
