"This is a very thought out, extremely detailed course with very knowledgeable instructors. The intent was to truly teach, and I have gone through several "Block Chain" courses. Sebastien explains very eloquently so there is no barrier to understanding difficult concepts and he takes the time to set up each developer environment for the various tools and software: Solidity, truffle, testrpc, npm, atom, Metamask, nodejs, truffle boxes. There are links, and websites for support, or knowledge. I feel like this is an equivalent to a University Class with valuable learning, I have a degree in Electrical Engineering so I appreciate quality learning. I am grateful for Sebastien and Said, without a doubt, one of the best classes around."
"Course material is really top-class. It covers all the aspects of the technology be it application or coding. Additional pieces of information really connect well with the lessons. Each lesson is very well curated and well explained by Sebastien."
"This course is worth every penny. It is well organized and easy to follow not because the contents are for beginners but because both lecturers are dedicated and really care about how much students can learn. When I enrolled in this course, I just switched to Linux and worried about learning new technology and setting up developing environment. Sure enough, I had a few bumps along the way, but they were there when I needed help. I cannot wait to take another course from them (I heard they are working on it). Highly recommended."
"Great course, the classes are very easy to understand, the instructor is very good. Also the course is so complete and embracing. Highly recommended!"
"Very clear guidance. I've tried to study Ethereum but found the information were fragmented and outdated, hard to keep up with. This course streamlines everything. The tutor really knows what he is talking and very good at teaching. Highly recommended."
"Excellent. The introduction and the explanations are always clear, at times illuminating. The concrete examples and the technical issues are treated in detail. Sebastien is an inspiring teacher."
"It all makes sense now! Deep and wide ranging theory, brilliant explanation and presentation."
"This is an excellent course on Ethereum. I have learned lots and I highly recommend it. Also, the teacher is highly responsive to questions!"
"Very clear, concise, and well organized so far. Great introduction to the use cases and high level overview with historical perspective and context."
ChainSkills Bootcamp is both for decision makers and software developers who want to really understand the blockchain. Developers will also benefit from the last part of the course to learn how to leverage it for real apps. Scroll down to get details for each day
The first day will help both decision makers and developers understand the blockchain on a conceptual level, without any technical background prerequisite.
After understanding the architecture of a decentralized application, developers will write their first smart contract, test and deploy them.
We will show developers how to integrate smart contracts with a frontend, and help you get started with your real project.
In day #1, we explain in generic terms why the blockchain came to be, how it works, why it is such a breakthrough, and what are its most important concepts.
We go over concepts such as:
This day’s program is ideal both for:
The content is heavily and visually illustrated, and highly interactive: you will get plenty of opportunities to ask questions and get detailed answers.
As you will see in the pricing section, you can attend only day #1 if you are not a developer.
In day #2, we focus on how you can leverage all the concepts presented in day #1 by developing a Decentralized Application (DApp) on the Ethereum blockchain.
During this day, we demonstrate the development of a sample DApp, step by step, so that you can follow along and experiment with the tools with our support.
Also, for this day, you need to bring your own laptop to be able to experiment with the sample application we show you.
Day #3 is all about getting your hands dirty with your own DApp and developing a frontend to access your smart contracts.
We show you:
And we also accompany you into bootstrapping your own DApp project. We will be here to answer all your questions and work out all the quirks you get into when getting started.
We offer several formulas depending on your background and what you want to learn.
Starting from €750 Regular
Starting from €630
Early Bird Price (until January 15th 2018)
At the end of day #1, you will understand what a blockchain is, what opportunities it offers and what challenges it poses to your business. You will be equipped to make better decisions regarding the future of your business or career when it comes to the role the blockchain can play in them. This will also be a unique opportunity to meet other blockchain enthusiasts and developers you might want to collaborate with.
If you go through the whole 3 days:
Overall, you will be a full-blown DApp developer.
And you will also get lifetime access to all our training material available online.
Whatever the formula you choose, we will also certify your participation in the training program in the Ethereum blockchain, which will make it easy for future employers to verify that you acquired that new skillset with us.
Of course, breakfasts and lunches are included, as well as free Wifi.
