The new course, ‘Hyperledger Fabric Fundamentals,’ is a further addition to the Foundation’s enterprise-oriented blockchain education efforts, which already include an online self-paced “Blockchain for Business” course via the nonprofit online learning platform edX.org.
As the Foundation’s Clyde Seepersad notes, recent data from TechCrunch has suggested that blockchain engineering jobs are “the second-fastest growing in today’s labor market”:
“[The pace of this growth is] leading to a shortage of professionals who are qualified to implement and manage [the technology] on an enterprise scale. After seeing more than 100,000 students take our free introductory Hyperledger course, we knew it was time for more advanced training options, and certification exams to demonstrate the extent of professionals’ knowledge.”
Today’s press release indicates that the new advanced course will enable students to tackle the fundamentals of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies (DLTs), alongside “the core architecture and components” that underlie decentralized Hyperledger Fabric applications.
Fresh data continues to indicate that the blockchain job industry is enjoying a sustained uptrend, particularly in Asia. Interest in blockchain and roles appears to have been more consistent among job-seekers than Bitcoin (BTC)-related positions, which appear to be more strongly correlated with price volatility on the crypto markets.
