Just starting out with Blockchain, Technology Smart Contracts Development and Solidity Programming? Perfect, I've got you covered! This course starts out assuming you're new to these technologies.
Or maybe you've already tried to learn Ethereum Blockchain Development and Solidity Programming by yourself and now you want to put all the pieces together? I'm here to help you, this course has everything you need to know about Ethereum Blockchain Development and Solidity Programming Language.
You'll have lifetime access and you can return and look for a specific Ethereum feature or Solidity syntax anytime you want.
All presentations and Ethereum Smart Contracts used in this course are available for download.
Many Ethereum Smart Contracts such as the ERC20 Token, the ICO are ready to be used with none or very few changes.
There are many courses on Ethereum Blockchain Development and Solidity Programming. Why should you learn from me?
I'm a Practitioner and a Blockchain Enthusiast. Welcome to the real world! I have almost 20 years of experience as a Software Engineer. Since I've started with Ethereum and Blockchain Development, I've been using or studying technology almost on a daily basis.
I'm an Educator and I know how to make a syllabus. For the last 10 years, I've trained thousands of people on Linux, Networking, Security, or Programming.

I've been a Network and Software Engineer for over 15 years, the typical profile of a DevOps Engineer.
I've co-founded Crystal Mind Academy, a Cisco Academy and professional training center in Romania, that focuses on teaching cutting-edge technologies to students.
I have contributed to education in the areas of programming, information security, and operating systems. During the last 15 years, more than 200,000 students have participated in in-person or online training programs at Crystal Mind Academy.
I have developed documentation, labs, and case studies for many training programs such as Cisco CCNA, CCNA Security, CCNP, Linux Administration, Information Security, Python Programming, Network Automation with Python or Blockchain Programming (Ethereum/Solidity) which have been successfully attended by thousands over the years.
When I'm not working, I crossfit, read a good book, enjoy a good time or travel with my wife and children.
The Academy’s goal is to teach hundreds of thousands of people cutting-edge technologies in the fields of Programming and Networking.
Our philosophy is that courses should be taught by real professionals with substantial experience in the industry, who are also great teachers.
