Welcome to Blockchain@Berkeley’s Blockchain for Developers DeCal for the Spring 2020 semester! This course is designed to provide students a comprehensive general overview of currently relevant topics in blockchain development, as well as hands-on experience in developing and deploying their own smart contracts.
Blockchain is currently one of the fastest growing industries in the technology sector, with 14 job openings for every blockchain developer. In response to this shortage of blockchain developers, this course aims to teach students the fundamentals of blockchains, the Solidity programming language, as well as industry-relevant tools such as Metamask, Infura, Truffle, and Ganache so that students will be equipped with industry-relevant experience in an accessible, collaborative environment. We hope that through this course, students will become more confident in their ability to develop and deploy blockchain-based solutions on important industry issues.
