Blockchain 101
Reviewed by Fabian on 2/22/2019
All things considered, it was good. We had a short, deep insight and overview. The time did fly. We made our smart contract and coin. We also installed MetaMask to receive and send the own coins we made. The amount of documents we get is tremendous — a lot of information to do self-study. I don't know how people can come to a course not prepared and late and so disturb the class. This interruption was a bit annoying because we had to wait and the teacher had to explain the same step 5 times. There should be more rules about that. To improve the class, I would appreciate an introduction and agenda. I missed some topics the description says on Eventbrite. It makes it easier if the teacher knows the knowledge of the student. Even if we were only 5 people, he had not the time to answer all the questions and to show something on the computer of the student. It would help a lot. This course could easily take one whole day. I would be in; even it costs more.

I felt instructor went too fast and did not explain line by line what the code meant....or what the functions were utlimately trying to achieve within the program. Take an online class instead.

The instructor did not have a good control over the course; some students were unruly in the class and proved to be a distraction. Also, the exercises were not very useful in fully understanding the course material. It would have been helpful to have an agenda at the onset of the course. Too much emphasis is made on Blockchain as it pertains constructing contracts.

Originally, I assumed that I would learn some boring theory and only get my feet wet, with respect to cryptocurrencies, but I got a lot more than I expected. I was able to create and trade my own coin among my classmates. I felt as powerful as the Federal Reserve. I originally started programming in 1985, but have been away for years and I needed some help getting back up to speed. I looked around at school options and I was turned off by the inflated prices. I liked the prices and decided to give these folks a try. So, I took their Immersive Python course. It was extremely challenging and satisfying. I would highly recommend that you give these folks a look. I'm certain you won't regret it
