According to a November 21 blog post, Tezos Southeast Asia (TSA), the charity that Tezos is promoting in the region, has partnered with Tribe to attract more developers to Tezos blockchain-based solutions for practical applications. The training program is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2020.
Caleb Kow, President of TSA, commented on the collaboration:
“If you have trainers who are familiar with Tezos Blockchain technology, they can increase the impact in their respective teams by sharing knowledge with newcomers.”
Tezos has previously worked hard to expand its developer community. In September, the Foundation awarded 14 new grants for applications created with Tezos Smart Contracts, Tezos Block Explorers, tools for developing Smart Contracts, Tezos-focused training materials, and marketing initiatives that promote the ecosystem.
