Series Description

Classroom

Cryptocurrencies, smart checks and digital identity

Now is the time to learn the promise of blockchain, its secure, distributed data technology, and the power of its disruptive force in every major industry.

To help you understand the technology and the business proposition of blockchain, we’ve partnered with The Blockchain Academy to provide seven intensive courses.

Two of the courses are nontechnical and designed with the entrepreneur in mind. The other five courses provide a technical foundation that deepens with each course.

Whether you are an experienced developer wanting to break into this promising field or a seasoned entrepreneur planning to integrate blockchain into your organizational infrastructure, join us in our new bootcamp-style workshops.

Blockchain Series program objectives:

While they vary widely by course, each workshop intensive is focused on providing practical hands-on experience that you can put to use immediately.
