You’ve undoubtedly heard and read a lot about blockchain. But what exactly is it, what does it do and where is it heading?
Well, wonder no more! All this – and more – is answered in our new one-day Blockchain Fundamentals course.
Launching in June, the course is designed for anyone who wants to further their understanding in blockchain technologies.
It introduces the basics of blockchains, along with fundamental concepts such as consensus and how it is achieved. Then basic cryptography is covered followed by a look at the ecosystem around cryptocurrencies, mining and key management. The course finishes with a look at applications and the future of blockchain technologies.
There are no prerequisites for the course, although experience with cryptocurrencies is an advantage.
