What are Our

"Product managers and the business side of a company tend to live in the logic, so understanding the limitations and capabilities of Smart Contracts was really helpful. I was able to absorb aspects of the Ethereum platform that I feel I would have missed or had trouble internalizing without the support of the instructor and my classmates around me."

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I set up a time to speak with a DEN team member?

You can schedule a time to connect with us on the phone by following the link here. We also run in-person info sessions for our Bootcamps on Wednesdays at our Fremont location!

When is the application deadline?

Bootcamp applications must be submitted at least five days before the class begins. We want to make sure we can help you reach your goals through our program.

When is the next course?

You can view our upcoming course schedule here.

Where are courses held?

Onsite: At our office in Fremont, CA or at a partner location in San Francisco or Palo Alto. The Fremont address of our headquarters can be found at the bottom of this page. We currently run workshops most Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the Bay area, and typically run weekend workshops in San Francisco.

Is this program right for me?

We've had senior level developers, executives, Founders and curious entreprenuers from across the Bay Area and beyond take our courses and go on to make amazing strides in the Blockchain space. If your goal is to make an exciting career shift into this hot new industry, then you will be in good company. Our introductory workshops are designed to bring interested people up to speed on the intricacies of Blockchain and decentralized tech quickly, while our bootcamps are strategically built to put motivated individuals on the fast track to making a measurable impact in their endeavors.

Are there any prerequisites for joining this camp?

Previous development experience is highly recommended, especially in languages like Python, Java, and Javascript. Basic understanding of blockchains, ethereum, and smart contracts is recommended. See our intro classes for details.

What is the application process like for our Blockchain Professional Developer Bootcamp?

Our goal is to help everyone we work with find the path to a Blockchain-based career that truly motivates them. After applying online here, we'll review your engineering background and any portfolio materials you provide. We then compare your information with that of recent hires and direct feedback we receive from our Blockchain hiring network. If we don't think you'd get enough traction with your current portfolio or level of experience, we'll give you actionable information about how you can best prepare to get the most out of our program and find success once you finish. If you qualify, we will conduct a non-technical interview with you either over the phone or in person to further ensure you will be able to get the most out of our program.

How much does the Developer Bootcamp cost?

We have 2 payment plans to cover a wider range of applicants:

1. $0 upfront + 8% of your first year's salary paid over 4 months after starting your job.*
2. $2500 upfront.

Much in the spirit of decentralization, we want to incentivize each other to create amazing outcomes for everyone who goes through our program. Option one allows us to lower the barrier to entry into the lucrative and exciting field of Blockchain development for anyone who has the prerequisite skills and desire to learn. Although we're taking a risk when reducing our upfront fee, this ensures that those seeking employment in the Blockchain space will have the entire DEN team rallying behind their best interests. Option 2 allows entrepreneurs and currently employed people to take advantage of the knowledge gained during our program.

*This option is only available to current job seekers who do not require work authorization in the Blockchain space. Our experience is that our course more than pays for itself when the target jobs we place our graduates into often fetch 10-20% higher salaries than a comparable non-Blockchain based position.
