Bitshala is a grass-root, organic education initiative (a pathshala) led by Indian bitcoiners to provide guidance and resources for new developers starting their bitcoin journey.
While a lot of Blockchain courses exist out there to provide surface-level API lessons on EVM like "smart contracts", the technical knowledge requirements for Bitcoin Development are much wider and nuanced.
Bitcoin is a multidisciplinary subject covering Software Engineering, System Engineering, Networking Protocol Design, Game Theory, Cryptography, Economics, and Social Dynamics of Complex Systems like the Market. Thus, creating a comprehensive bitcoin course is probably impossible in its entirety, and nothing in the existing academia and programming boot camps satisfies such requirements. New people trying to enter into Bitcoin development thus have to scour through a big set of parallel subject domains, not well organized and spread across the internet.
Thus Bitshala aims to provide the ground for ideating, producing, and publishing different categories of content in Open Source to satisfy the varied learning need of an aspiring Bitcoin Developer.
The questions and practical exercises. I think they are very well designed to make you deeply reflect on the studied topic. It help me a lot to consolidate knowledge. The kindle and super fast support from bitshala team and the rest of bitshala comunity. Sharing knowledge, experience and a lot of good stuff. I was awesome to me you all. I loved the day when instead of following the planned agenda and discussing the weekly questions, there was a debate on philosophical and profound topics about money and bitcoin. It was great

I feel elated to be a part of the first cohort of graduates from Bitshala, and I hope that it turns into a beacon of Bitcoin literacy in India. It's a tailor-made platform and an avenue of great resources for those who are keen on traversing on a path to learning and imparting Bitcoin education.

The LBTCL-cohort was an unbelievably rich and empowering exercise in learning the finer details of a Bitcoin node and transactions. Raj and Setu have made the experience worth so much by their sheer enthusiasm and dedication, that it leaves a mark on you. The mentorship and the community at Bitshala is invaluable, and like Bitcoin, it will gradually then suddenly take the world by storm
