- Introduction to a designer’s role in emerging technology and design for identity
- The importance of looking through the eyes of the user. Introduction of concepts such as calm technology, design for social innovation, and empathy
- Exploring the different obstacles such as interoperability, account recovery or tech understanding
- Discussion of different methods to reduce friction in HCI (human computer interaction), the importance of critical thinking and critique in the design process
- Collaboration with developers
Upon joining, you'll become part of a select group with access to courses that will teach you the core principles of decentralized ecosystems and Atala PRISM, including self-sovereign identity, decentralized identifiers (DIDs), verifiable credentials (VCs), governance frameworks, and more.
The course materials are highly interactive, with workshops, weekly videos, exercises, cross-course collaboration, and Q&A sessions, along with exclusive access to the course creators and office-hours with key experts.
Identifying high-value use cases and developing partner networks is critical to adoption and growth. Astros are graduates of the Pioneer program that will receive mentorship, collaboration, and support through office hours, dedicated communications channels, commercialization opportunities, and more.
Leading by example
Governance frameworks are a vital piece to decentralized ecosystems. The Atala PRISM team created one for the Pioneer program to govern the issuance of credentials for our program. It is a real-world example to examine during the course as it is implemented and operational. We welcome anyone to explore the governance framework here and even use it as a template to create your own for your ecosystem.
