Build your own online store with ย Solana Pay.

Cryptocurrencies. You've seen them make your money disappear. How about using them to make money appear? This is a chill weekend project where you'll build your own online store using Solana Pay. No Rust knowledge required. Learn how to take payments directly on the blockchain.

Learn about Solana Pay by actually building lol

Everyone talks about how crypto is the future and how they're going to go bankless, but almost no one actually uses crypto to buy stuff. Time to change that.

๐Ÿงฑ๐ŸŒž

Pick up Solana Pay, the top library for taking blockchain payments.

Solana Pay is one of the top libraries available for handling payments, online or IRL. All you'll need is Javascript..

๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ”

Create a Solana dApp w/ Next.js, Replit, and Phantom.

A Solana dApp is cool. But, what's even cooler is giving people a UI to connect their wallet and actually interact w/ the program :).

๐Ÿช๐Ÿ’ฐ

Deploy to the Solana devnet for real and impress your dog.

We're going to actually take our work outside of localhost:3000. You'll have a fully deployed Solana project by the end!

Who is this for?

If you're a dev curious about Solana or web3 -- this will be perfect. It helps if you have basic web dev experience!

๐Ÿ‘€ Curious hackers who want to tinker w/ Solana

This is probably our biggest audience. You're just a cool dev. You're hearing all the buzz about Solana and want to learn more about it at a technical level!

๐Ÿ›  Engineers that want to build cool crypto stuff

Tech moves fast already. And, crypto moves even faster lol. This is good for engineers in industry that want to build on the side and level-up their skillset.

๐ŸŽ“ Students that want to build their portfolio

Perfect if you're tired of your classes and want to pick up some new skills + ship a real product to put on your portfolio.

Build alongside other devs and get shit done.

Building stuff alone is lameee. Once you enroll we'll get you in a channel where you'll get to share progress with a cohort of awesome devs.
