How to start career in blockchain technology
PRE-REQUISITES for career in Blockchain :
There should be a basic pre-requisite for career in Blockchain which needs knowledge of programming languages . Most Blockchain career is created in languages like java , c++ , java script , c# , python & so on . .
Specifics for career in Blockchain technologies :
For Core Blockchain development , any of the before mentioned languages will be perfect for career in Blockchain. In case we have to create distributed applications & smart contracts on Ethereum , it is mandatory that we learn the programming language Solidity .
Then we need to understand the fundamentals of object oriented programming , for wrapping up of data & functions into a single unit . This is exactly what blockchain functions on .
For example , when we create Ethereum block , it has 2 components, DATA & FUNCTION . The user details act as DATA ( Data includes person who is sending the transaction , how much money they are planning to transfer ) . Then we have FUNCTION , which is the command to send & receive payment .
Knowledge about DATABASES ?
We learn FLAT & RELATIONAL DATABASES ( Blockchain is based on these ) , the working of data structures like STACK LIST , LINKED LIST , QUEUE & so on .
Then we understand the working of data structures like STACK LIST , LINKED LIST , QUEUE & so on . It is because Blockchain itself is a backlink list. Each block in a Blockchain references the previous block . This is done by a field in the block header known as PREVIOUS HASH that holds the hash value of preceding block .
KNOWLEDGE ABOUT WEB DEVELOPMENT DEVELOPMENT ?
Being well versed in WEB APPLICATIONS (FRONT END DEVELOPMENT ), you are ready to enter into a wide opportunities to create web & mobile applications based on Blockchain technology .
KNOWLEDGE ABOUT NETWORKING ?
As it works on INTERNET , we learn how system’s communicate with each other , how the networks work , so on .
AFTER ALL THESE , WE CAN START A BLOCKCHAIN CAREER DEVELOPER ROLE . Few more points to be remember before entering into this career are : –
1) The first is to understand the concepts of Blockchain .
– Learning important terms related to Blockchain like public distributed ledger , hash encryption , proof of work & mining .
– Learning how system’s like ethereum , hyper ledger , hash graph & other systems that use Blockchain works to their technology .
2) Understand the economics behind cryptocurrency and blockchains .
– known as Crypto-Economics . Miners are rewarded after solving hashes .
3) Understanding how cryptocurrencies work & encryption & transmissions across network .
4) Getting hands on experience .
– Coding and creating your own smart contracts .
– Creating your own distrubuted applications on the Ethereum platform .
