Coursera just started a class on IBM Blockchain. The course is being taught by two IBMers, Ant Cole and Dave Gorman. If you are a developer interested in learning about Blockchain, check out this free 6 week course being offered by Coursera. Here is the complete course description:
“About this course: If you’re a software developer and new to blockchain, this is the course for you. Several experienced IBM blockchain developer advocates will lead you through a series of videos that describe high-level concepts, components, and strategies on building blockchain business networks. You’ll also get hands-on experience modeling and building blockchain networks as well as create your first blockchain application.
When you complete the course, you should understand what a blockchain business network is, how to build and model a simple blockchain solution, and the role of the developer in creating blockchain applications.
If you successfully complete the course, you’ll receive a certificate of completion and an Acclaim badge. You’ll need to pass several end-of-section quizzes and a final exam that include multiple choice, true and false, and fill in the blank questions.
This course does not cover Bitcoin or cryptocurrency in detail.
Who is this class for: Software developers who are new to blockchain.”
Enrollment is free or you can seek a certificate for a small fee.
