Blockchain Developer Career Path

Hello there,

My name is Riccardo Scarpis.

I am enjoying my time at codecademy learning how to code!

I would like to open a new topic in regards to the new trend on Blockchain technology such as creating new Ethereum based tokens , smart contracts and decentralized Apps and NFTs.

Before I summit a request for a new career path, I would like to chat with you ( community ) about this new technology.

What do you think?

I think Blockchain is the future.

Please share your thoughts.

Sincerely,
Riccardo Scarpis

Just wanted to drop this in here: although not a path, CC has an existing course about blockchain using Python.

Hello Victoria,
Thank you for letting me know about this class.
Blockchain developer should be a complete career path.
Did you take that course?
Let me know,

I did take the course. It is a shorter course (expected completion time is 2 hours), but it’s meant mostly as an introduction to blockchain for those already familiar with Python. It teaches you the basics of what blockchain is about and how to implement a very basic version of it in Python.

If you’d like to suggest a blockchain career or skill path, you can make a post in this category: Suggestions; Feature and Course Requests - Codecademy Forums.

I got started in Blockchain from thewebuniversity’s this crypto guide. Then I got very excited about this new technology and learned many things.

@riccardo.scarpis , this is a cool idea! I’m a Senior Content Developer at Codecademy currently working on Cybersecurity content, and I’ll definitely add this to my list of future content to consider. I have content currently scoped for the next few months, but I’m excited to research this more and see if it has a place in our catalog!

Hello There,

Hello there,

Let me know please.

Hello Sargould,

I am very happy that this idea of an entire career path for Blockchain Developers looks interesting to you.

I would like to help you on this task:

I can give you access to a boot camp that I paid for you to see their content such as ethereum based tokens, nfts, smart contracts etc.

In addition to this I can offer some financial help for codecademy to develop the career path.

Would be great to learn how to implement front end + back end + blockchain.

I think this career path will get many people to subscribe to Codecademy services around the globe being so easy to marketing.

Can i help?
Let me know.
Sincerely,
Riccardo Scarpis
