My name is Drew Taylor, and I've been working in the cryptocurrency space since early 2017. I was formerly Senior Blockchain Developer at Greenstream Networks, and I've worked as a DApp developer and blockchain consultant for a number of projects. In 2018, I was even lucky enough to win 2nd place at the Government of Canada GC Blockchain Codefest.
I recently developed an online course in programming Ethereum DApps with the Solidity language. The course is available on Udemy, and I was given a code by the publisher for free access to the course for many students.
Promo code: CSCE1391 (use this code to get the course FREE)
This course is designed for beginner level Ethereum developers who want to take a comprehensive deep dive into writing smart contracts and building web applications that interact with them. No prior experience with the Solidity programming language is necessary.
This course takes a hands-on approach that guides your learning by comprehensive examples with clear and concise explanations. Course content is conveyed as simply as possible while still retaining a good learning experience and occasional sparkles of poof mind blown
By the end of the course, you’ll have comprehensive knowledge in writing smart contracts and building web applications that interact with them.
Wow, authoring a course on how to program DApps was a lot more work than programming one! This project was really a long and drawn out, and sometimes chaotic, labour of love, but ultimately I feel it made me a better DApp developer.
Ethereum, blockchain technology and the Web3 vision are a new way to think about what the modern Internet should be like. While the concepts involved can seem really complex, they're not that bad once you become used to a few key concepts like immutability and decentralization.
From an outsider perspective, the Blockchain space may seem like a bunch of buzz words, but if you're willing to approach it with an open mind I think it will be a valuable experience for you to acquaint yourself with this totally awesome technology for the Internet of the future.
