Eden could fund paid internships for computer science graduates that are interested in gaining profesional experience and get started on a blockchain career path. Internships could be 6 months long after which devs “graduate” and can apply to work with established teams on EOS and grow the ecosystem.
What would interns work on ?
The internship will focus on learning “hands on” by creating cool projects for the Eden Community. Ideas for projects, proof of concepts, MVPs etc, would come from the eden community. Eden members can also decide which projects would have the greatest impact and have the interns focus on them.
Who would lead the interns ?
Guidance from established dev teams such as EOS Costa Rica can help teach interns the required skills.
Why fund internships?
This would help foster a healthy developer ecosystem and have new devs discover the power of building EOS.
- Build a talent pool of EOS developers
- Supply qualified dev teams to work on other eden member’s projects
- Create developer training resources
- Providing opportunities for aspiring students who wish to learn about blockchain
Where would inters come from ?
Any technical university student, especially those that already include an internship program as a pre-requisite to graduate. Applicants would preferably be fluent in English and would be interviewed and selected according to their skillsets for the program.
