Blockchain is here – so what next?

NCFA-BLG Nov 10-11 2 Day Blockchain developer training course

The Blockchain Developer Opportunity

If you are a software engineer interested in emerging high growth project opportunities, you’ll want to ensure your technical skills are polished and you have access to proper training and resources. There is a significant shortage of skilled Blockchain developers unable to meet the demand of emerging projects! NCFA is pleased to announce an inaugural educational partnership with the Blockchain Learning Group offering a special introductory rate to attend an immersive, 2-day Blockchain developer training course on decentralized application development to help fill the gap of skilled engineers while connecting graduates to project opportunities.

According to a recent 2018 PwC survey, 84% of 600 executive responders confirmed some involvement with Blockchain technology from proof of concepts to well capitalized international scale-ups and incumbents looking to modernize legacy systems. Distributed and immutable ledger applications are evolving rapidly with uses cases that improve trust and transparency for many business processes while distributing transactions to a decentralized network in a way that reduces costs and eliminates intermediaries. While crypto markets have exceeded $200 billion in just the last 2 years alone, the underlying technology is forecasted to disrupt almost every vertical with annual business value of more than US$3 trillion by 2030.

 What Students Who Took the Course are Saying

“I had been very interested in Blockchain and all its potential, but the technical aspect seemed daunting- out of my scope of understanding. In two short days. I was taught to think differently and came out with a whole new mindset due to the immersive hands-on learning experience Blockchain Learning Group provided. Their instructors broke down the content well enough so that I could easily digest it, but at the same time, maintained a level of challenge and moved through the material very quickly in order to cover a lot in the limited time. The instructors were patient, eager to help, and I felt very comfortable in their learning environment, and as a result, I took away a lot from the experience. With well-planned out course material and excellent instructors, I would recommend the course to anyone looking to dive in head first into the space.”

“The Blockchain Learning Group delivered a workshop that was incredibly informative, and well-organized. They provided a structure that included both an understanding of Blockchain technology and decentralized applications, as well as an immersive method to building your own tokens and wallets. The instructors were extremely supportive throughout the entire process, and very eager to ensure that we received the most out of this opportunity. For both coders and non-coders, beginners and intermediates, this workshop is exceptionally beneficial to augment your understanding of DApps!

What Corporate Trainers are Saying

“Their approach to Blockchain education – combining developer training with business ideation and facilitating the actual Application Development – is by far the most immersive, responsive and action-oriented training program we have seen in the market. Their approach is underpinned by a deep understanding of how to efficiently leverage Blockchain for business coupled with a seamless training regimen. Our developers who participated in the education program were amazed at how much practical knowledge they acquired in such a short period of time!”

“Wow. Just wow. Before the training, our students had a rudimentary understanding of Blockchain technologies. Only a few weeks later they are building multiple decentralized applications and becoming young thought leaders in such a short period of time! Adam and the team were phenomenal facilitators. Not only were they incredibly knowledgeable, but they knew how to deliver the content to different audiences who might have had various levels of coding experience and Blockchain understanding. How they were able to provide a personalized experience to a group of young people was very impressive.”
