Coinbase Launches Base Bootcamp, a Developer Mentorship Program to Grow the Web3 Ecosystem

Coinbase, the leading cryptocurrency exchange, has launched a new developer mentorship program called Base Bootcamp. The program is designed to help experienced software engineers transition into smart contract developers. So, if you're a web2 developer interested in making the career transition into web3 - this is the course designed for you.


Base Bootcamp is an eight-week, cohort-based program that will teach participants the fundamentals of smart contract development, including Solidity programming, Ethereum Layer 2 (L2) scaling solutions, and Coinbase's own L2 network, Base.

The program will also provide participants with hands-on experience building and deploying decentralized applications (dapps) on Base. Participants will have the opportunity to work on real-world projects and receive feedback from experienced Coinbase engineers.

Base Bootcamp is open to experienced software engineers with a strong foundation in programming and computer science. No prior experience with blockchain or smart contracts is required.

Why Base Bootcamp?

The blockchain industry is facing a major shortage of developers (cough cough bear market). According to a recent report, there are less than 30,000 on-chain developers compared to almost 30 million conventional software professionals. Coinbase is on a mission to fix that.

This shortage of developers is a major obstacle to the growth of the web3 ecosystem and Coinbase is hoping that Base Bootcamp will help to bridge this gap by providing experienced software engineers with the skills and knowledge they need to build dapps on Base.

Benefits of Base Bootcamp

Participants in Base Bootcamp will receive a number of benefits, including:

  • Mentorship from experienced Coinbase engineers: Participants will have the opportunity to work closely with Coinbase engineers and learn from their expertise. Interested In becoming a mentor? Apply here.
  • Hands-on experience building dapps on Base: Participants will have the opportunity to work on real-world projects and deploy them to Base.
  • NFT of Completion: Graduates get a fancy proof-of-education badge showcasing their new skill. Everyone loves a utility NFT!


Base Bootcamp is a intriguing opportunity for experienced software engineers to learn how to build dApps on Base and contribute to the growth of the web3 ecosystem. It's also worth mentioning that the Coinbase team is probably putting a ton of time and effort into this program given that it's a great opportunity for them to get more builders building on their L2 (aka a marketing funnel for Base).
