Bangalore, June 5, 2023 – Lumos Labs, a web3 innovation enabler focused on building an ecosystem of learning and growth for developers, today launched the Lumos Academy, an educational platform for Web2 and Web3 developers and enthusiasts. The platform aims to smoothen the transition into Web3 and allow developers to upskill themselves to gear up for the future of technology.
Equipped with the necessary resources and knowledge to understand and work with the foundations of Web3 technology, this initiative is for individuals interested in the Web3 ecosystem with a basic understanding of computer languages.

The curriculum lays emphasis on three key areas: Web 3.0 fundamentals, cryptocurrencies, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). From covering the simple basics through the “Intro to Web3” course, including Decentralized application (dApp) creation, smart contract interaction, and safe transactions to several important and comprehensive chain specific courses, the curriculum is focused on simplifying dApp creation along with providing resources to allow developers to build on several blockchain such as Ethereum, Polygon, Glitch, Internet Computers among others using tools like Truffle, React and Solidity. These courses are structured to help developers gain practical experience and kickstart their journey into developing their own blockchain applications.
With the Web3 industry boom dominating the technology landscape in the past few years, web3 technology and its awareness is becoming steadily mainstream along with increased adoption. The demand of blockchain experts have taken a major leap with Linkedin recording a massive 395% rise in web3 related job roles in 2021 whereas the pay range for web3 developers have reached an elite scale of $110K to $153K per year. The sector is also witnessing significant growth in talent where earlier this year, Github crossed 100 million developers on their platform.
