We really wanted to take the time to introduce our first web3 bootcamp cohort and give a bit of their history, why they wanted to learn to code in solidity and what their outlook is to the course. I posted out to the team, asking them to answer a few questions, and of course, Varma came back first.
I have known Varma through a startup that works out of our incubator. Varma has always struck me as a classic founder, very focussed on finding his mission. Always wanting to build something. I cannot wait to see what Varma puts together for his demo day. Anyway, without further delay, on with the rundown.
Could you tell us a bit about yourself?
I’m Varma and I’m a data scientist, having studied for my masters degree which focusses around AI at the UEA. Im always excited about new technologies and new opportunities.
Why did you choose to do a web3 bootcamp?
I was introduced to blockchain in 2018 when I was searching for latest technology trends. Since then I was searching about blockchain news and following crypto markets. But I never encountered people who worked in the technology side of blockchain. That’s when I met James in 2021 and he invited me to few meetings about blockchain and the technology behind it. This literally opened endless enthusiasm in me and since been an active member in ETHanglia.
What excites you most about web3?
I’m so excited about the bootcamp not because I could get a job, but I could connect with people who are working for the future of Internet. I get to build for myself. That's what I want to do. That's what I am working on. I’m so excited and looking forward to be a part of greater picture of web3.
