Rust Solana Web 3.0 Blockchain

Requirements for students

The course is targeted at people with programming experience. An understanding of basic programming concepts like variables, functions, memory allocation, etcetera is assumed.

Since Rust supports an object-oriented approach, it will be easier for you to grasp the material if you are familiar with other object-oriented programming languages, such as:

FAQ

Can I learn Rust as a first language?

For a quick transition to Rust, it is usually recommended to be able to program in C or C ++. ICB course assumes students understand the basic programming concepts like variables, functions, memory allocation, etcetera.

How does the online studying of the Rust course take place?

The course includes the Rust and Solana basics. Learn lessons, pass quizzes, and do exercises with which you can improve your retention of the material.

The lessons and tasks are collected in one place — at the Teachable platform.

The lessons unlock gradually. You will have to pass the test after each lesson for that.

Why should I choose the ICB course?

Course Rust + Solana for beginners is created in cooperation with IdeaSoft and Blaize specialists. Course authors have deep expertise in blockchain development and a clear understanding of how to prepare trainees to write their first smart contract.

In this course, you will get only the necessary beginner's knowledge and tasks. No more waste of time in a selection of information.

However, be sure that you will be able to start your career in Rust and Solana development.

What programming language does Solana use?

Solana smart contracts are built on Rust, C, and C++.

Can I skip the Rust study and go to straight to the Solana unit?

Yes, if you already know the Rust programming language. Pass the tests in the Rust section to unlock Solana basics.

How do I start off with blockchain?

Take this free blockchain development course. You will learn Rust development and the Solana environment. The acquired skills will help to begin work in blockchain.

What experts and students say about us

When I started acquaintance with Solana there was no easy way to learn core features, only documentation, SDK source code, and some examples from open-source projects. Now Solana ecosystem, have Solana cookbook and Anchor Guide Book that is pretty good, but still more focused on showing concepts and not explaining how to use them in production code.

That's why I always wished for a course that will provide you with all the necessary to write real-world Solana programs.

I hope this course will help you learn all the things about Solana development much more easily and kindly guide you from basic concepts to understanding how to create quality and robust programs.

To be a Rust developer, you don’t need special previous knowledge or some special background. The main point is to be encouraged by building secure and scalable applications and put sustainability as the core part of your development and vision of how to build the application.

Picking up this vector of the development and approach to building applications, Solana creates SDKs and development tools to make this way to build not only on Rust but the smart contracts and communicate with the blockchain much easier.

As the education platform, we make it twice easier. We provide a “cookbook” on how to build and “cook” your perfect experience and knowledge as a Rust developer and a smart contract developer based on Solana. We create all needed and compound tasks, experience-provided knowledge, and processes that will be needed later. This is our goal and our key unique value proposition that we put inside our ICB.

Solana is not the easiest blockchain in terms of developing smart contracts. Apart from knowing Rust as a programming language, it is still necessary to pass not simple acquaintance with the instruments.

This course is prepared by specialists in blockchain and decentralized systems and developers with deep experience in working with rust. And all of them are familiar with all the difficulties and pitfalls connected with the development of Solana. Therefore, I am sure that this course will provide the necessary conditions for entering this niche and will provide the necessary knowledge to specialists with the desire to develop in this direction.

Educational information in the Web3 domain is often poorly structured, overwhelming, or outdated. Our goal with ICB is to provide IT specialists with market-relevant practical education. This course will give you a clear path and a quick start in Rust+Solana development and real career opportunities.

Created by senior developers with continuous hands-on experience in Rust and Solana, this course helps you get profound knowledge that you can put into practice. It is a great fit both for beginners switching to Rust/Solana and those with little experience but no systematic approach.

I wanted to learn the NEAR blockchain, so it was necessary to improve my skills in Rust. I began to study the available resources, this Rust course turned out to be the simplest, most understandable, and easy to learn. Lots of material, relevant to the topic, and questions that help identify gaps in knowledge and expand understanding of the material.
