Macro is backed by several of the best founders, operators, and investors in Web3.
Web3 moves fast. The following information incorporates our core curriculum -- however, because our topics are updated every week, by the time you enroll, this course may contain new or omitted information.
The principle method of learning will be through hands-on projects and live lectures.
After each project or assignment, our staff will micro-audit your code. We score it based on security, accuracy, and readability.
We will provide you with personalized feedback -- using the same format that our audit arm uses to deliver its feedback to paying clients.
