This workshop is to build the foundations to understand blockchain technology and how it can disrupt multiple industries.

The demand for knowledge in blockchain is increasing as multiple enterprises are looking to achieve efficiencies or/and create new business models enabled by blockchain technology. Ethereum is the leading blockchain platform and it is accepted as the most mature for building applications. Despite the complexity of Ethereum, the learning-by-doing approach of this workshop will accelerate the learning process and make it easy for attendees to understand the concept of decentralisation.

Have you ever looked back on the nineties, thinking you would have loved to be a part of the web revolution? Well, stop dreaming: the blockchain is here and it could be even bigger.

The workshop is designed for students and professionals who want to build their foundations in blockchain technology, or those who want to test their skills with a basic practical project before moving forward with advanced courses.
