The course Blockchain for Managers discusses the essential features of Blockchain technology and Blockchain applications.
The course Blockchain for Managers starts with an explanation of the structure of a blockchain in which blocks of arbitrary data are linked together by means of a cryptographic hash. Attention is paid to the fact that the data is immutable and therefore reliable. It also explained how the blockchain can act as a ledger of executed transactions.
Next cryptocurrencies, which are the best-known application of blockchain technology, are covered. The features of widely used cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum are discussed. The difference between Prove of Work and Prove of Stake is treated and wallets and mining of cryptocurrencies are also covered.
Next it is explained how blockchain technology is a distributed technology that also has applications outside the domain of cryptocurrencies. Attention is paid to how trust is obtained by matching data on different network locations. As examples the use of blockchain in supply chains, for food safety, in healthcare and in governmental organizations are discussed.

All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.
We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.
The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.
We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.
Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.
The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.
The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
