Somehow we’ve made it to the halfway mark of the year already. Thanks for joining us on this journey, and if you’re new then we are glad to have you! Between launching the Holochain Developer Education Initiative and the upcoming launch of the newest hApp, Chess, there was a lot going on last month. Read all about it below:

Holo Limited is very pleased to announce the launch of the Holochain Developer Education Initiative. In the coming two years we are committing upwards of $2M to build and foster an ecosystem of developers. This work builds on past efforts–especially those of the Holochain open dev community–and will create efficient, effective, and scalable curriculum to educate experienced developers on how to code and build hApps and products on Holochain.

We’ll share more about Chess when and if we believe the app is ready to publish.
