DCBuilder.eth - Zero Knowledge ML and Becoming a Web3 Developer

Today’s guest is DC Builder - a pseudonymous dev who works as an engineer at Worldcoin and maintains DevPill.me - a guide to becoming a web3 engineer.

DC Builder has contributed quite a bit of open source content & research to the space as well. He’s written things like deep dive guides on L2s and he also created the zero knowledge machine learning community.
In this episode, we got deep into the weeds on ZK ML (a fascinating topic I knew nothing about before this convo), becoming a web3 dev, and how to decide which communities and ecosystems to invest time into.

This is a great episode for engineers looking to level up in the industry, and for anyone curious about ZK ML.
