What Coding Languages & Training Needed to Become A Blockchain Engineer
Come and learn in 45 minutes what is Blockchain and what it takes to become a Blockchain Engineer. >> Blockchain engineers are making between $150,000 and $175,000 annually on average. As of now, Blockchain engineers are top paid roles in software development, on par with specialists focused on Artificial Intelligence. >> Demand for Blockchain engineers has increased by 400 percent since late 2017 according to Hired, a firm that helps clients recruit tech candidates. What coding languages to learn to become a Blockchain Engineer: - C/C++ - Python - JavaScript and Node.JS - Java - SQL and MongoDB database design and management //Knowledge of Linux would be great. >> The most popular programming language used currently to write smart contracts is Solidity [it is based on OOP JavaScript] List of the major cryptocurrencies (coding languages) are: Bitcoin (C++), Ethereum (C++), Stratis (C#), Hyperledger (Java), Corda (Java), Credits (Java or JS) There are multiple aspects to working on blockchain: 1- You want to build your own blockchain (like Ethereum, Bitcoin etc). 2- You want to build a distributed applications (dapp) or smart contract on top of an existing blockchain (Ethereum Ethereum Project is the most popular one currently). 3- You want to build a “distributed ledger”. Hyperledger Fabric (Welcome to Hyperledger Fabric) is the leader in that one. Below is a best article for comparing private versus public platforms for developing blockchains: Below are two good books:

Coding Bootcamps


What we're about

JavaScript is becoming ever more popular on the client, server and mobile. Let's get together to learn new skills and network with like-minded JavaScript developers.

Why another JavaScript group? Because with ES6 around the corner and with over 1 million JavaScript projects on GitHub, the Washington DC metro area can afford a new and different look at this fantastic language.

In partnership with other local companies, we offer high quality coding and technology training as well as free seminar and 1 day workshops. Classes are usually at Coding Bootcamps office located at 3165 Mt Pleasant St NW.
