Module1-Intensive Training Module (3 days)

Day 1

From Nick Szabo’s “bit gold” in 1998 to Ethereum’s Metropolis release in 2017, participants will learn a historical timeline of what we call today “Blockchain technology”. After attaining historical context for Blockchain, participants will then dive into a technical and business perspective of the technology fundamentals concepts and key features. In Day 1 participants will also start the journey of identifying the problem they are trying to solve, the technology fit and the business model.

Day 2

During the 2nd day of the course, participants will dive into the different Blockchain platforms, their differences and when each platform can be used.

The participants will be then going through Blockchain decision frameworks and get into the weeds of what make a strong Blockchain business case and deriving insights to help them through the process of finalizing the vision for their next Blockchain solution. 

A strong focus on user design will be acknowledged to assure that participants are creating viable Blockchain business plans that solve current/future use cases.

Day 3

In Day 3, participants will be able to expand on their understanding of Blockchain business models through a critical review of curated white papers of existing projects to derive forces to implement in their project and pitfalls to avoid. This will allow students to immerse into a Blockchain professional mindset. 

In addition, participants will review laws and regulations by deep diving into the details of different jurisdictions and going through Blockchain legal frameworks.

This will then lead the participants to begin working on their Blockchain business plan for the Capstone Project.

    Certified Blockchain Developer

    (Including CEDev & CFDev Certifications)

    NEW

    CFDev program and certificate - This is a hands-on program that will guide the candidates through the concepts of Hyperledger Fabric, while helping them master the back-end programming of this permission Blockchain.

    By completing the program, participants will be able to build and deploy Hyperledger single and multi-networks; and query the network.

     

    Upon completion the course, you will receive a certificate issued by Lassonde Professional Development at York University. Once the certificate is granted, it will be hashed on the Ethereum blockchain and is globally accessible for further verification.

    Module1-Intensive Training Module (3 days)

    Day 1: Introduction to Hyperledger Fabric Development

    Hands on installation of Hyperledger Fabric Networks

    • Intro to Blockchains
    • Intro to Hyperledger Permission Blockchains 
    • Hyperledger Fabric Architecture & Components
    • Understanding Basic Networks
    • Setting up your Hyperledger environment

    Participants will learn the basic concepts underlying most Blockchains. They will understand the evolution of Blockchain from public to private network. The deciding factors behind this evolution, the tokenization of each type of network; the value add of private networks to Enterprises and the Consumer. They will understand the applicability and fit of private blockchains into business models. The focus will then shift to the open source Hyperledger blockchain suit of systems by the Linux Foundation; and then Hyperledger Fabric with IBM.

    By the end of the day, participants will have  a deep rooted knowledge of the Hyperledger Fabric architecture, components and capabilities.
