Admission Policy and Process

You have to prove your seriousness in learning and then only you are admitted to our bootcamp. This makes our admission policy as unique as our Bootcamp.

Admission Policy

  • Programmers who have a minimum of one year of coding experience are well-suited.
  • You must be proficient in English.
  • It will be beneficial to have some prior knowledge of blockchain programming. Although prior knowledge is not required, our curriculum is fairly fast-paced, so having a head start will help you succeed and show us that you are committed to the subject.

You’ll receive details about the orientation within 12 hours after enrolling.

Frequently Asked Questions

15% Tutorials, 85% Coding. Group office hours will be held once a week & with a weekly one-on-one session

All content will be delivered through video & text using our LMS. 

Each week at Metana includes four key events:

  1. A group class and discussion lasting for 1 hour. Students are encouraged to prepare a list of questions for the instructor ahead of time, and the next week's assignment will be introduced and clarified during this meeting. The group class also provides an opportunity to discuss recent crypto events and explore more in-depth blockchain concepts that may not be covered in the curriculum.
  2. A 30-minute one-on-one code review session with an instructor, during which the instructor will provide feedback on the code written during the previous week.
  3. Time dedicated to studying materials for that week's topic. Materials may include reading or video resources provided by Metana.
  4. Completing the new assignment, which will typically take up the majority of the week.

In addition, Metana also provides support for interview preparation and instructors are available to work closely with students to get them ready for pending interviews.

Personalized Instruction. Every week you will spend half an hour one-on-one with a senior engineer who will do an expert review of the code you wrote for the assignments. He or she will point out mistakes and suggest improvements. If serious mistakes are found, you must go back and fix them. (If you don’t like taking direct feedback on how to improve, Metana is not for you!)

Small Cohorts. In addition to your weekly personalized meeting, you will meet 1 hour per week with your cohort and the instructor to discuss what you learned, ask hard questions, discuss crypto news, and generally have an awesome discussion with smart and passionate people. Each cohort has a hard cap of 10, and we frequently make it smaller. You will be surrounded by like-minded people who help keep you accountable and stay on track.

Hands-on Emphasis. There is no tutorial hell with Metana. At least 80% of your learning hours will be spent coding or hacking.

Extremely Rigorous Curriculum. Although 80% is practice, the remaining 20% of theory matters too. We don’t see theory and practice as either or. We want you to know the fundamentals and the minute details of how things work.

We go way beyond other courses in what we require you to understand.

For example, towards the end of the course, you will be writing non-trivial smart contracts completely in assembly (Yul), breaking incorrectly used public signature cryptography, creating an Ethereum wallet from scratch, using testing techniques most developers have not heard of, reverse engineering the compiler output without the aid of a decompiler, and recreating hacks that have drained applications of millions of dollars.

You will understand at a deep level how smart contracts store various kinds of data on the blockchain and how transactions are formed and interpreted.

It is our strong recommendation that you be familiar with Solidity before starting the bootcamp as this course is fast-paced and therefore, being familiar with Solidity will be a huge advantage. You can learn Solidity quite easily but writing secure code is the tricky part. But no worries, that’s exactly why this bootcamp is here!

Yes. You should feel at ease writing unit tests in Javascript and building clear and simple web applications. Our emphasis is on smart contracts; this is not a web development bootcamp. We assume that you already know the fundamentals of web development and Javascript or that you can figure it out on your own without our guidance.

If you are confident that you can handle Javascript development during those weeks, feel free to wing it, but expect to spend extra time.

Before beginning, we advise learning some of the fundamentals of react js if you are not a front-end developer. React JS supports web3 libraries very well, and you can copy and paste a huge amount of code from StackOverflow. But it's fine if you prefer to use something like Vue and are already familiar with it. Additionally, we advise Next Js, a React-based framework, but the choice is ultimately yours. If you are not a front-end developer, libraries like bootstrap or materialize CSS can make your life simpler. If you want more design customization but don't want to use raw CSS, we also like Tailwind CSS.

Ultimately you should decide if this bootcamp is for you. Keep in mind that we will not be teaching you web development in this bootcamp.

At Metana, security is given top priority. Most of the assignments are based on hacking. You won't graduate if you are unable to complete the hacks. The sheer volume of frequent hacks demonstrates how poorly versed in security today's smart contract developers are. Our graduates must not contribute to the issue. You won't graduate if you can't finish the hacks. (Don't worry, you'll receive the instruction you require.) 

However, becoming a smart contract auditor without having a lot of experience developing smart contracts is not realistic unless you have a solid foundation in cybersecurity. We aim to develop you into a strong web3 developer, but if you are still set on becoming a security auditor, we can show you the next steps.

At Metana we have 3 pillars of success. 

1. Curiosity. Ask questions and keep them coming.

2. Consistency. We will closely monitor your GitHub contributions so do NOT try to cram assignments at the last minute. That would never work out well for you.

3. Feedback. Don’t be scared to ask questions or give feedback. Google can’t always explain exactly what you don’t understand. We have a low instructor-to-student ratio specifically to facilitate more communication.

We appreciate student feedback and continuously improve our curriculum based on it.

This changes from week to week. It can be anything between 5 to 35 hours per week and will greatly depend on what’s covered that week and your level of expertise.

We want our students to succeed. So we recommend you reserve at least 20 hours per week for this course. Some weeks might take more hours than others.

In addition to being a bootcamp, we also work as a recruiting firm, and we get paid a commission if we help you find employment. Therefore, we are very invested in you finding a job.

We won't necessarily offer you a job off the bat either. We will work with you to enhance your online presence and make your resume look good. The hiring process is incredibly random, and any successful job search requires submitting numerous applications and acting professionally while doing so.

Yes, this has been done before. You'll improve not only in your job but also in the code you write for it thanks to Metana!

Dhruvin has been in the blockchain space since early 2017 and is currently CTO & Lead Blockchain Developer at opty.fi

Dhruvin has been a Blockchain professor since 2019 at George Brown College and York University based in Toronto which is Canada’s first college and university to offer a blockchain program.

  1. For this course, you must have 1-2 years of experience developing Javascript-based production software or one of its syntactical supersets, like TypeScript.
  2. Bash scripting will be used for a variety of tasks throughout this course, so a level of competence with any shell scripting language is a requirement for success.
  3. You also need to be familiar with Git and version control systems like GitHub.

This course is designed for programmers with at least 2 years of experience. 

Sorry, we only accept students with prior programming knowledge and at least 2 years of experience. You can always come back us after you have a foundation in coding 🙂

We have solidity professionals signed up for this bootcamp. Because we offer,

Personalized Instruction - Every week you will spend half an hour one-on-one with a senior engineer who will do an expert review of the code you wrote for the assignments. He or she will point out mistakes and suggest improvements. If serious mistakes are found, you must go back and fix them. (If you don’t like taking direct feedback on how to improve, Metana is not for you!)

Small Cohorts - In addition to your weekly personalized meeting, you will meet 1 hour per week with your cohort and the instructor to discuss what you learned, ask hard questions, discuss crypto news, and generally have an awesome discussion with smart and passionate people.

We go way beyond other courses in what we require you to understand.

For example, towards the end of the course, you will be writing non-trivial smart contracts completely in assembly (Yul), breaking incorrectly used public signature cryptography, creating an Ethereum wallet from scratch, using testing techniques most developers have not heard of, reverse engineering the compiler output without the aid of a decompiler, and recreating hacks that have drained applications of millions of dollars.

You will understand at a deep level how smart contracts store various kinds of data on the blockchain and how transactions are formed and interpreted.

Yes! We have students who are blockchain engineers, & employers pay the tuition.

Around 15% of our students comprise entrepreneurs who have their businesses. This bootcamp will be immensely helpful for a founder as it will help you keep up with the trends and assist you in identifying the latest innovations in the field. 

Large classes tend people to communicate less which we want to avoid at all costs. We prefer a low instructor-to-student count to facilitate the answering of questions and asking of questions. This class size also makes it easier for the instructor to keep up with your progress, identify your weaknesses, and give you a personalized learning experience. 

We want to concentrate on providing a quality service first and then focus on growing our company. 

As our testimonials say, this bootcamp is really hard. There is a chance that you will be unable to complete it within the given 16 weeks. With this course, we are trying to condense 2+ years of skill and experience into a period as short as 4 months. During this time, you will constantly learn and make new and lasting connections. 

We recommend you check whether you can keep aside 20 to 30 hours per week for 16 weeks to complete this program. If you are somewhat of a slow learner or have relatively less experience, this bootcamp may end up taking all your time. So be prepared for the chance of this becoming your full-time bootcamp.

Of course, we know that the internet is saturated with content and resources. But the real question is, do you know exactly where to begin?

At Metana, we will guide you along a clear roadmap. Time is money. If you cluelessly wander about the internet for useful resources, you will be wasting your time.

If you like us, value your time and would like to be assured that you are taking the best path possible, this bootcamp is for you. We will ensure you don’t waste any time searching for resources. You will not have to scroll for hours on Reddit forums or StackOverflow. All the necessary resources will be at your fingertips.

That is completely fine. As long as you are showing interest and doing the work, we will consider your reasons for taking more time. 

However, we’ve taken the utmost care when creating this program and therefore, we expect our students to prioritize this course and take it seriously. 

We understand that sometimes, life gets in the way. Things happen and you might have to delay your education. We take these situations on a case-by-case basis and will consider moving you to our next cohort. However, if we notice that you are falling behind because you are not taking it seriously, we will ask you to leave the program. 

Our main goal with this program is to equip you with skills to have successful careers in the field of blockchain. But it is up to you to have the passion and interest for this field. 

As part of the application process, you will schedule a 30-minute video interview with a student admissions officer. In the three days leading up to the interview, you must complete and pass a coding test with a sufficient score. If your interview is successful, you will receive a conditional offer of acceptance. To secure your place in the program, you must pay at least the first month's tuition.

Our program has seen success with self-taught programmers who work as freelancers. This experience often allows for more flexibility in completing course assignments.

Additionally, a strong passion for learning is key to success in this program, as we focus on staying up-to-date with the latest technologies.

Prior experience with low-level programming languages such as C or C++, as well as having a graduate degree, may also increase the likelihood of success in this program.

Ultimately, the most successful students are those who are highly curious and eager to acquire new knowledge. Our bootcamp aims to streamline the learning process by providing targeted and relevant information, allowing students to focus on mastering new skills through practice

Lectures and study materials at Metana may include both in-house resources and high-quality materials sourced from the internet. These resources may include readings or video content.

While lectures are an important part of the learning process, we believe that hands-on practice is key to truly understanding and retaining the material. Therefore, we try to minimize the amount of time spent in lectures and focus more on problem-solving and working on projects.

During lectures, we make an effort to cover the less obvious or unexpected aspects of the topics being studied.

We started metana in February 2022 and our first bootcamp on June 2022.
