It introduces all the basic skills you need to become a capable builder, from the beginning. This document contains the course materials, links to video recordings of the live class sessions from the inaugural offering of the course, the assignments, and a link to the Discord server of the Decentraland University, in which the VR Academy channels support interaction between the students, alumni, and instructor.
Carl Fravel, founder of the Decentraland Conference Center, will be giving an introductory talk about Decentraland, in Decentraland, with a focus on how it works and how it can be used as a platform for a wide variety of projects.
This talk is primarily provided for the participants in the global “Planet Wide Hackathon” sponsored by CryptoChicks and The Builder Collective – a network of hackathons from around the world focused on projects of benefit to humanity. This talk is for the many people among this network of hackathons that are new to Decentraland, and may want to use it as a platform for their initiatives.
But anyone new to Decentraland or who is looking to network with projects that could use Decentraland should feel welcome to come, to learn, to network, to bring your colleagues.
Here is a great 5 minute “Getting Started in the Conference Center” video made by CryptoChicks. It was made for their upcoming May 29-31 opening ceremonies for the Planet Wide Hackathon, but it is a great video for newcomers to Decentraland to visit the Conference Center.
The Decentraland Conference Center will be the virtual venue for the hosting of the opening ceremonies of the Hackathon.
CryptoChicks and DAOstack have combined forces to create a global network of hackathons working to bring solutions to global and local problems, to benefit humanity.
Planet Wide Hackathon-SOS (Share our Strength) is a virtual event created by the community partnership of CryptoChicks and DAOStack with help of dozens of technical communities across the globe to develop solutions to heal our world in crisis. We are uniting all involved leaders, partners and communities into a digital cooperative The Builder Collective to make funding decisions together. As of today we have applications from 25 countries: USA, Russia, Bahamas, Colombia, Pakistan, Turkey, Egypt, UAE, UK, Germany, Sweden, France, Kenya, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, India, Latvia, Romania, Philippines, Singapore, Afghanistan, Belarus, and Canada. So, it’s already been well received. What will it be like by May 29 when we launch!
Opening Keynotes, Panels, Speakers and Sessions on the weekend of May 29-31 will be held at the Conference Center, so they can be attended from anywhere in the world without travel.
Schedule details for the weekend will be shared soon, but the overall calendar for the Planet-Wide Hackathon is:
