Learning Solidity is a potential starting point for beginners who want to become blockchain developers, and it’s also useful for many people who are already working in the blockchain and cryptocurrency space. Solidity is a high-level language that bears some resemblance to JavaScript, Python, and C++, and it is the main programming language used for writing smart contracts for the Ethereum blockchain on the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM). Learning Solidity makes it possible to build industrial-strength blockchain applications.

The cryptocurrency space is still an emerging market and economic sector, so the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics hasn’t yet mapped the employment and salary outlook for blockchain developers. However, as more companies, including Facebook, venture into the crypto space, new and varied opportunities appear regularly. For blockchain engineers, job listings advertise around $70,000 entry-level compensation and upwards of $150,000 for more experienced developers.

A number of bootcamps and courses are available for aspiring blockchain developers. Below is a list of the relevant bootcamps and courses, paired with reviews by alumni.
