Blockchain technology is set to disrupt the digital landscape as we know it. Upskilling in this area is essential if you want your business to adapt and thrive. We’re no longer talking if this happens – it’s most definitely when. And there are already a whole bunch of companies doing awesome things with blockchain technology. Santander, for example, was the first UK bank to utilise blockchain to facilitate international payments via their One Pay FX app. And Civil is set to disrupt the world of journalism by using the technology to build a trustworthy and sustainable news platform.

Pragmatic has a keen interest in the world of blockchain (have you checked out our recent project for Coinbase Commerce yet?). So much so that we’ve teamed up with the folks at ConsenSys and in November, we’ll be running a 3 day Smart Contract Developer training program.

Become a certified Smart Contract Developer

The training offered by the ConsenSys Academy will give participants the core skills needed in Smart Contract coding, testing and deploying. It’s open to anyone who’s interested in becoming a blockchain developer (no experience in Ethereum necessary!). ConsenSys have recommended that all participants have at least 1 year’s development experience – preferably in web applications.

ConsenSys will be delivering the Smart Contract Developer training at our offices in Brighton on 5th – 7th November. You can find a breakdown of the course below.

Day 1 Day 2 Day 3
Development Environment Ethereum Virtual Machine Truffle & Ganache
Private Blockchain Workshop Pitfalls and Attacks Testing & Debugging
Solidity Programming Smart Contract Development II Smart Contract Development III
Smart Contract Development I

Those who attend a minimum of 80% of the course will get a certificate of completion. You will also have the opportunity to take an exam to earn a certificate of proficiency. Gaining a Smart Contract certificate is the first step in becoming a fully fledged blockchain developer. If you see blockchain playing a part in your business, this training session is a great place to start.

Sound interesting? Full details and enrollment information can be found on the ConsenSys Academy website. We hope to see you in November!
