ConsenSys Gives Boost to Web3 Education, Funds Projects Building Solutions to Fight COVID-19
ConsenSys, a U.S based Ethereum oriented company, recently unveiled its Enterprise and Developer Libraries, resources for both institutions and software engineers to keep up with blockchain industry developments and discover new solutions.
April 8, 2020
Both include access to free, on-demand webinars and a planned calendar of upcoming virtual content. The Enterprise Toolkit provides introductory guides to Enterprise Ethereum, with in-depth case studies on the most successful implementations of the ConsenSys technology stack.
ConsenSys Developer Portal has been expanded to include a new Developer Library with documentation on Ethereum fundamentals, network upgrades, and how-tos on ConsenSys developer tools like Infura and MetaMask.
In addition to the new libraries, ConsenSys Academy has released the first five modules of the Blockchain Developer Program (for free) to those looking to deepen their technical skillset in blockchain engineering.
Access to these modules will be provided once participants complete the Blockchain Hackathon Preparation for Developers or Blockchain Beyond the Hype: Real Use Cases webinars. ConsenSys is also offering 30% off all blockchain courses and certifications.

Gitcoin launched its fifth round of Gitcoin Grants, offering a new pool of $100k to match funds for public health-related projects aimed at helping those impacted by the Coronavirus. Users can donate ETH or DAI to any project building a public good or service. Each donation is matched from a pool of funds using Quadratic Matching.
Connecting with ConsenSys and Ethereum Communities
The Ethereal Summit will go digital with the Ethereal Virtual Summit on May 7-8. ConsenSys has designed virtual programming to ensure an engaging experience and timely content, including nearly all of the previously confirmed 100+ speakers in familiar formats such as keynotes, fireside chats, and panels, but with additional engagement through virtual roundtable discussions and VR meetups.
The Summit is free to attend from anywhere in the world and is open for registration.
