Courses

Blockchain for Professionals

  • Cost: €2,350
  • Duration: 5 weeks
Locations: Online
Course Description:

Blockchain jumps at you from almost every FinTech publication, economic newspaper, industry blog and even mainstream news.

Although the hype is massive and cryptocurrencies are highly debated, fundamental misconceptions persist. Further, the blockchain community can feel exclusive to those with programming and coding experience, leaving out valuable perspectives, backgrounds, and inputs from non-developers.

At B9lab, we want to make blockchain education accessible to everyone who wants to learn. That's why we developed this in-depth course for non-coder professionals seeking a deeper understanding of blockchain technology: how it works, potential applications, benefits as well as critical aspects to tackle misconceptions.

Blockchain technology enjoys a great deal of untapped potential to revolutionize and disrupt our way of living, interacting, governing and trading. Yet in order for blockchain to fulfill the promise ascribed by enthusiasts, a critical and deeper understanding is essential.

We will dive into technical fundamentals, deployment patterns, and smart contracts, but also thoroughly address use cases, business applications and implications of blockchain technology.

The learning experience we provide encompasses not only foundational understandings allowing strategic decision-making, but also tutoring, class discussions, reflection questions, and self-assessments.

Ethereum Quality Assurance Engineer Course

  • Cost: €1,350
  • Duration: 6 weeks
Locations: Online
Course Description:

This course has been developed to meet the growing need for blockchain-focused QA Engineers.

Everyone is talking about blockchain technology, especially in relation to smart contracts, which have the power to touch almost every area of our lives. Ethereum in particular has 30 times the number of developers involved in its ecosystem than its nearest competitor does. But where are all the QA engineers? It's a sad fact that many projects have gone live with little or no formal testing by anyone other than the person who developed the dApp. The consequence of working with bleeding-edge technology combined with a lack of formal quality assurance is that there have been bugs. Some have been minor, but others have caused the loss of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

A project built on the Ethereum blockchain may look identical to a normal, centralised application or API. But the differences are so great that the whole quality assurance process needs to be approached in a completely different way, requiring the QA engineer to dig deep into the code and conceptualise ways of pushing the underlying smart contracts to their limits with different data inputs and variations in network conditions and transaction fees.

This course has been developed to meet the growing need for blockchain-focused QA Engineers. The course provides hands-on examples of this type of rigorous exploratory testing and explains how to set up different test environments in order to do it.

Assuming the QA engineer – like any modern testing professional on an Agile project – is involved at the earliest stage of the project, he or she needs to ask questions about transaction fees, latency, privacy and data compliance. You will learn to specify acceptance criteria that can later be used as the basis for automating your acceptance tests, with quizzes, screencasts and exercises to test your understanding of the requirements. Test automation is a critical part of the QA process. You will learn about the most common test libraries and how to run your suite in a continuous integration environment.

Subjects: Test-Driven Development (TDD), Blockchain and Crypto, Blockchain

Hyperledger Fabric Developer Course

  • Cost: €1,450
  • Duration: 9 weeks
Locations: Online
Course Description:

This course is an extensive in-depth journey into blockchain theory, how Hyperledger Fabric works and a lot of hands-on experimentation. The course is designed to get you from 0 to 100 in 8 weeks.

Whether you are interested in getting a head start or you want to switch careers (or you maybe even have an offer already?) this course provides a deep dive into blockchain and Hyperledger Fabric. The course consists of videos, texts, screencasts, visualisations and lots of practical exercises. A new batch of content lands at your feet every week. In our experience, you will need at least 8-12 hours a week to keep up. But if you need more time you will have another 12 weeks after the course to catch up and get certified.

If you do get certified, we would also be happy to match you with an interested company wherever we can.

Finally: you do not have to know Go (aka Golang) before you start. We will teach you enough Go so you can write chaincode.

Subjects: Blockchain and Crypto, Blockchain

Hyperledger Sawtooth for Developers

  • Cost: $985
  • Duration: 5 weeks
Locations: Online
Course Description:

Hyperledger Sawtooth is a modular platform for building, deploying, and running distributed ledgers. It includes a novel consensus algorithm called Proof of Elapsed Time (PoET), which targets large distributed validator populations with minimal resource consumption.

Its modularity makes it especially interesting for developers and enterprises. Sawtooth also allows us to define rules for transactions and smart contracts tailored to individual needs. This is a permissioned network with great capacity for scalability.

At first glance, Sawtooth might seem unusual to experienced blockchain developers who have never seen concepts such as “transaction families” before. However, a closer look reveals that despite looking different, such concepts can be used to implement familiar ones in more flexible and modular ways.

This online Hyperledger Sawtooth course offers developers an opportunity to become proficient with blockchain and Hyperledger Sawtooth. After reviewing the fundamentals of blockchain technology, the student will learn how Hyperledger Sawtooth fits in the blockchain environment, discovering its architecture, tools and transaction families. Next, the student will look at different SDKs to eventually be able to analyse real-world examples and identify the most important aspects.

Subjects: Blockchain and Crypto

"Missing Link Found!"

B9lab provided us with this course what other blockchain oriented schools "forgot" to do; they presented the missing link between the business and technical sides. You can find courses online about learning Ethereum, Hyperledger Fabric, etc...but what... Read More

The course covers all aspects of blockchain culture, it starts with an introduction to the crypto-terms and mechanisms that make blockchains work the way they do, then talk about different protocols (e.g. Ethereum, Bitcoin, Monero, Zcash, etc...), and expand in detail about multiple uses cases where blockchain can be used (e.g. Finance, Government, Supply Chain). All this is done in simple language, supported with different types of media (images, animation, videos, external links) making the grasp of blockchain knowledge a smooth and interesting journey. Each chapter ends with a quiz to test your understanding of the read material, and at the end of the course you need to write an essay if you plan on getting certified (highly recommended; I learned a lot while researching for the essay).

Btw I'm a technical person (Software Developer for more than 12 years now), and I recommend the course for all blockchain developers; it gives you a clear and broad view about blockchain technology without the "noise" of setting up your Ubuntu/Hyperledger Network or writing Solidity/Go chaincode.

"Keeping up with the bleeding edge of a fast paced technology isn't easy, but B9Labs does a good job of it"

One area that B9Labs' course that really stands out is that it has a more philosophical and ethical section to it. It also has links to lots of useful articles and videos for reading around the subject more.

Some of the weaker points of the course are that the bespoke UI (at least when I took the course) was clunky and buggy. The ecosystem is also changing so fast that minor parts of the course material got out of date. The examination could also do with some refinement.

"Extremely knowledgeable individuals but courseware needs some refinement"

The instructors are extremely competent and knowledgeable about blockchain and Ethereum particulars. The course does a great job walking you through the Ethereum stack from bytecode to full stack dApp development. The lessons also do a good job of honing... Read More

One area of improvement is that the openEdx based course pages need some really good editing. Currently it is a bit repetitive in some places and it lacks a strong narrative. Also, although solidity and the landscape are changing very rapidly, the code examples and package versions need a good update to reflect the current state of the field. Constructors, error emssages, and subtle differences in interacting with tools like the truffle framework have been a bit out of date. Also, I think the emphasis on interacting with the Ropsten testnet was set up rather poorly and due to the network itself being so unreliable, I found the first few weeks a little frustrating. For a group like this, I would really expect them to maintain their own testnet for all their classes.
