Tezos Developer Education

TOMI's campaign to nurture the growth and success of the Tezos developer community will blossom through exciting activities and programs over the coming months and years.


In-person intensive education. Our pilot program is a weekend immersive course in Los Angeles taught by CalTech PhD, Dr. Debajoti Ray. Tuition, meals, room and board are all covered. Application season will be open soon.

On-site Training

If your business or blockchain project—with staffed in-house developers—is in need of live Tezos-OCaml-Michelson training, you may be able to contract with TOMI to provide training to your developers at the convenience of your own office location.


If you would like your university or other institute of higher learning to teach a course on OCaml or expand their current OCaml offerings, we can help.  TOMI is developing classroom courseware for educational institutions.


After iterating our bootcamp model, we will take TOMI Bootcamp overseas to key English-speaking developer cities around the world. If you are interested in seeing TOMI come to your city, let us know.

TOMI's long-term project is to develop comprehensive and constantly iterating online courseware for the global Tezos community – designed not only for seasoned developers but for entry-level coders as well.

TOMCAT and Exam
