Why Metana's Rust Bootcamp?

Ready to master Solana blockchain development? You’ve come to the right place!

Blockchain technology is the most disruptive force in years, and amongst the various blockchains is the shining star that is Solana. It’s faster, cheaper, and better for the environment than both Bitcoin and Ethereum. These factors mean Solana is growing exponentially despite being so new, and make it likely to reach mass adoption.

Large tech companies and start-ups alike cannot hire developers who understand blockchain technologies fast enough, but there are so few resources published to help you truly understand what blockchains are used for, let alone build apps with them.

That’s the purpose of this course: to be the best resource online for learning about Solana, the blockchain, and how to build apps with these cutting-edge technologies.

By the end of this course, you’ll:

  • Be an expert Solana and Web3 developer
  • Be proficient at creating your own decentralised applications from scratch
  • Make millions from NFTs? Build a decentralised version of Uber? Create your own bank? Up to you!

Important Notice: Unlike our Solidity Bootcamp, we do not offer a job guarantee for our Rust Bootcamp. This is because Rust is a highly specialized programming language with a relatively small job market, and it may take longer to find a job after completing the program.

However, we want to clarify that we are not discontinuing our Rust Bootcamp, and there is no change in the quality of the program. We are committed to providing our students with the best possible education and training, and our Rust Bootcamp is no exception.

If you’re interested in blockchain development and are looking for a bootcamp with a job guarantee, we highly recommend checking out our Solidity Bootcamp page. Our Solidity Bootcamp is designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to become a successful blockchain developer and includes a job guarantee.

Thank you for considering our Rust Bootcamp, and please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.


We offer three options to get your career change started.

This investment includes a full year of access to our Web3 course material. Additionally, the course offers live events, AMA sessions, personalized support from the instructor, and a certificate of completion for those who complete the course.

You can pay your tuition via card, bank transfers, or with crypto.
