They are ideal for the beginning developer who is comfortable programming in a high-level language and desires to advance his/her career in the blockchain field, as well as those curious about the Internet-like technology and its vast possibilities. The courses prepare learners to program on the Ethereum blockchain, design and implement smart contracts, and develop decentralized applications.
