Class is in session! This summer ARK worked with the University of Maribor to introduce students to the world of blockchain. From deployment to custom transaction types, we helped students learn blockchain development by teaching them how to build a blockchain application from the ground up.

School is finally out for ARK’s CTO Kristjan Košič, who went back to college (quite literally) this summer to mentor students from the University of Maribor.
As part of the university’s Practical Course II, which encourages collaboration between students and industry leaders. ARK helped a team of students from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences to learn blockchain development by embarking on a project to build their very own application on top of a custom blockchain. The project, designed by ARK, helped the students to apply their knowledge in a real-life setting, learn key skills, and get valuable experience that will help them lay the foundation for a career in blockchain development.
Kristjan met with the students twice a week, taking a hands-on approach in helping them build a blockchain application. In between sessions, students were coached and supported by the wider ARK development team who offered feedback on all areas of their project and helped them to learn blockchain development by getting to grips with ARK’s technology.
Using ARK’s technology stack, ARK Deployer and a multitude of other resources the students were able to build a blockchain application on an ARK bridgechain in just a few sessions.
