Blockchain+ Developer™

Build the Foundations of Tomorrow with Blockchain Developer

The Blockchain+ Developer certification offers a comprehensive journey into blockchain technology and smart contracts. Beginning with the origin and structure of blockchain, participants explore consensus mechanisms and the concept of smart contracts, delving into Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) and Solidity basics. Advanced topics cover Solidity structures, tokenization, and non fungible tokens (NFTs). Development tools like Truffle and Ganache are introduced, along with testing techniques and DApp integration. Participants then explore private blockchain with Hyperledger Fabric, learning its architecture, Docker setup, and Golang programming. The course culminates in chaincode development, REST API integration, and chain code auditing.
