“It is paradoxical, yet true, to say that the more we know, the more ignorant we become in the absolute sense, for it is only through enlightenment that we become conscious of our limitations. Precisely one of the most gratifying results of intellectual evolution is the continuous opening up of new and greater prospects.”
March 2021, the story begins with a single objective; provide fair training and job opportunities for everyone.
Since then Rise In has become the go-to platform for training and onboarding of developers in Turkey for companies and learners alike. We have accomplished numerous projects with industry giants and thousands have testified building a great career through our bootcamps and practicums. Our community has since grown to a staggering 130k+ learners, making us the largest developer community in the country.
Foray into Web3
‘Blockchain’, ‘Decentralisation’ & ‘Web3’ ; it's early 2022, the world is getting over pandemic and the hype about these words are at its peak. Regardless of the market volatility, it became evident to everyone that the technology is here to stay.
Turkey was especially in the spotlight; cementing its place amongst the top 5 countries in the world for crypto adoption while boasting the highest appetite for web3 metaverse after USA, Indonesia & India.
The talent pool of developers in Turkey is massive and growing rapidly. With more than 203,000+ Github users, Turkey has become one of the top 10 countries for open source contributions. The talent pool is also growing faster than its Eastern European tech-hub counterparts like Ukraine, Romania and Poland.
Almost a year since coming into existence, our community also started demanding that we bring the blockchain and web3 training to them - only then we decided to start Rise In; an offshoot of the main platform with a focus on bringing web3 technologies to the emerging economies.
Our first ever web3 practicum kicked off in March 2022 and the community response was overwhelmingly positive. We concluded the 3 month program with an exceptional success rate with 100+ programmers building their first dApps.
Solana & Superteam
In our quest to bring the best technologies in web3 to our community, we partnered with Solana to build a career pathway that went live on November 8, 2022.
The program is designed to help anyone gain a better understanding of web3 and build a skill set to kickstart a successful career in this space.
But we decided not to stop here: What about providing real career and income opportunities for builders after they learn all the necessary knowledge in our training?
Cue, Superteam Turkey!!!
What is Superteam?
Superteam helps the most promising Solana projects in the ascending world to launch and grow. It began its journey in India and has since expanded to Vietnam, Germany and is now coming to Turkey.
When we first heard about ‘Community GDP’, the north star metric of Superteam, we were very excited. It’s amazing that no matter where builders live, they can have access to world-class earning opportunities. This completely aligns with our mission of ‘fair job opportunities for everyone.’
So, today Rise In is super proud to help launch the Superteam Turkey chapter!
What do we aim to achieve?
This new chapter will enable us to not only groom the next generation of builders in the country but also provide a direct incentive to learn and build.
Our goal is to make Turkey one of the top countries contributing towards the growth of the Solana ecosystem. To achieve this, we will be introducing exclusive funding, mentoring and building opportunities for the Members in collaboration with multiple global and local partners.
What’s in it for you and how can you start?
We are building a community of web3 builders, learners and enthusiasts where you will be in the company of the best of the best minds actively contributing towards the growth of the Solana Ecosystem!
Start your journey by joining our Discord server and telling us a bit about yourself using this application form. We will soon announce the first earning opportunities specific to Turkey and invite the best of the best builders to an exclusive IRL meetup.
