BlockChain Bootcamp



2 Days (Sat/Sun) Blockchain, Decentralized Apps, Decentralized Organizations and Cryptocurrencies

Have you thought about building Decentralized Apps for Chat, Search Engine, Social Network, News, Music etc? Web 3.0 is the future and Blockchain is enbaling Web 3.0 Decentralized World Computer. Let’s clear the hype and lets get to the basic building blocks of Blockchain.

What is this course about? Blockchain technology have enabled a new breed of application software popularly called ‘Decentralized Apps’. I wrote the popular O’Reilly book titled ‘Decentralized Applications” and now I’m creating a brand new online course to teach you how to build your own Decentralized app using blockchains, distributed hash tables, peer to peer protocols, and deep learning! Erudition is offering this flagship course with exclusive projects, a certificate of completion, expert feedback and review to teach the foundations of this future-shaping Blockchain technology.

Our mission: Strategism’s Mission is to provide education in emerging technologies to masses at no cost or very affordable rate. What is life’s objective at the end of the day? Life is fleeting, and permanence in this world is something we all strive for. The best way to achieve permanence is through sharing knowledge.

Doesn’t matter if you are aligned to left brain or right brain you can join Erudition in your Emerging Technologies training!! We will also provide interview help and placement services.

You will get USD200.00 worth of books on Blockchain and Decentralized Applications for Free!! That are written by Bhairav Mehta and other authors.
