New York-based Ethereum development studio ConsenSys has released a Blockchain and DApp Developer Job Kit to help developers enter the growing blockchain market, the company announced on its website.

The new “job kit” was released last Friday and offers a variety of resources that aim to help aspiring developers meet the growing demand for practical blockchain development knowledge. In their announcement, ConsenSys cited Linkedin’s 2018 U.S. Emerging Jobs Report, which shows that “blockchain developer” is the fastest growing position in 2018, with an incredible 33-fold increase compared to the previous 12 month period.

The kit not only offers a blockchain knowledge glossary, which covers topics such as consensus algorithms, sharding, token standards and hash functions, but also recommends programming languages for development. JavaScript, Python and Solidity are recommended for ETH-based Dapp development, while Go, Rust, Java,.NET, C++ and Ruby are recommended for backend or protocol development on the blockchain network.


The job kit also offers information that will help aspiring developers navigate the field, such as data on potential salaries, and a list of places where devs can start searching for employment. The list includes sites such as Blocktribe,, AngelList, and some more traditional professional networks such as and Linkedin.

In the announcement ConsenSys also made an overview of the sector by citing several studies. One of them was a study conducted by Big Four audit firm PwC, which showed that 77% of companies were on their way to roll out blockchain-based solutions and products. Another survey, conducted by Big Four firm Deloitte, showed that 67% of developers hold a positive opinion on blockchain technology.

This is not the first time that ConenSys has tried to help developers enter the blockchain space. Back in 2017 the company launched an academy to help developers learn more about the blockchain space.
