Blockchain: Where to Begin?

Blockchain symbolic representation

Blockchain is a technology that I hear about almost every day now. 

And yet I haven’t found the best place to learn about it – both its concepts and its implementation. With so many courses and books, where to begin?

Those of you who have learned about it and use it regularly – what resources did you use? What, if any, certifications are legitimate?

You may leave your thoughts in the comments, or tweet me: @deepinthecode.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year 2013

It’s a new year, and a new opportunity to update skill sets! So far, my poll indicates that the most popular technologies for the upcoming year (at least for those who answered the poll) will be jQuery and Python. Given the increased number of articles and blog posts about jQuery and also Python’s use in the world of “Big Data”, I’m not surprised.

There are plenty of free classes and tutorials out there for Python; I’m currently working on the CS 101 class from Udacity now, and will be looking at Kaggle for some experience using Python for data science.
