LONDON, Sept. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The first cohort of B9lab's course for developers on the Ethereum Blockchain has graduated today. Participants have taken part in a challenging nine week, in-depth training course culminating in the first ever certification. The course has garnered much interest with more than 100 developers registered, coming from six continents and 28 countries. In keeping with the course's principles, the certification will be available on the Ethereum Blockchain reinforcing the authenticity of the developers' credentials.
Participants in the course learn not only Truffle, Web3 and Solidity, (Ethereum's programming language) but also gain a deep understanding of the foundations of blockchain technology. Marco Polci (CTO at Digital Identity SA) said the course "…went beyond my expectations. Not only the development of the smart contract, but all aspects related to the creation of DAPP [decentralised applications]."
B9lab developed the course in response to a growing demand for trained developers from large companies and institutions. 'We were getting daily requests from potential clients to provide training or find developers for their blockchain projects. We quickly realised the community needed a course that would certify their talents, and that's what we're trying to achieve." said Elias Haase (Founder at B9Lab).
Now on its fourth iteration, the online course is made up of videos, screencasts, exercises and graded midterm and final examinations. Almost 24 hour support is given by the B9lab course team composed of experienced developers, who have been part of the blockchain community from the beginning and witnessed the technology evolve. Jef, (another graduate) remarked, "The support while on the course was responsive keeping me unblocked on all of my little learning stumbles. Also as the network of DAPP development tools updated through the course the staff kept up with the newest developments including adding it to the course materials."
B9lab provides training, advisory and research services on blockchain and decentralised applications. Founded in 2014, the company aims to demystify the field by providing a range of training courses to prepare stakeholders for the changing technology and certify developers to aid that change. Equally, they help companies, governments and institutions determine the best technological fit for their projects.
