Introducing the EPF Study Group

The Ethereum Protocol Fellowship (EPF) is a program designed to scale back the barrier to entry for builders curious about engaged on the core protocol. As core developer (and EPF creator) Piper Merriam likes to say, the door is comically extensive open. EPF helps you stroll via it.

Over the previous two cohorts, one in every of the most frequent request we have acquired from candidates & members was for higher onboarding supplies. Josh and Mario, the coordinators of the EPF, are excited to announce the launch of the EPF examine group (EPFsg): a ten week schooling sequence supposed as a precursor to the Ethereum Protocol Fellowship (the fifth cohort is coming 🔜). EPFsg has been designed to information and develop the subsequent era of Ethereum core builders and supply a deep understanding of Ethereum’s inner mechanics.

Bridging the Hole

Understanding the Ethereum protocol is a fancy, however necessary, endeavor. The examine group goals to bridge the hole by providing a curriculum targeted on all components of the Ethereum stack & roadmap.

Ethereum Protocol Research Program Overview

Program Particulars

The EPF examine group is a stay webinar-style program, consisting of two phases. The primary part, which can consist of 1 90 minute class per week, will likely be targeted on a normal overview of the underlying construction of Ethereum. In the latter part, college students will select between the analysis or growth tracks (or each). Every observe could have its personal weekly 90 minute class and will likely be a deep dive into the chosen subject.

Throughout the examine group, college students will acquire a greater understanding of Ethereum’s core protocol, diving into matters that embody:

  • Protocol design
  • Execution and Consensus layer structure, specs, and implementations
  • Testing strategies and instruments
  • Present analysis and roadmap gadgets:

    • Verkle timber
    • Sharding
    • MEV
    • Proof of stake enhancements
    • State and historical past expiry

Every on-line session will likely be led by present core dev and researchers from numerous consumer groups and analysis teams, include pre-meeting studying supplies to get you accustomed to the subject and terminology and post-meeting actions to strengthen and solidify your understanding.

Moreover, college students will collaboratively develop a complete wiki, serving as an evolving information base for present and future core builders. This can present college students with sensible expertise in contributing to open supply assets, whereas gaining invaluable expertise in documentation and community-driven growth.

Who’s Protocol Research for?

Whereas this program is designed to behave as a precursor to the Ethereum Protocol Fellowship, this examine group is for anybody that’s curious about studying extra about the internal workings of the Ethereum Protocol. Those who have normal information or use of Ethereum and/or blockchains in addition to people who have some laptop science, technical, or developer expertise will get the most from this program.
