3 Hour Course

Learn about verified, distributed computations in the cloud using Ethereum

Bitcoin took the world by surprise in the year 2009 and popularized the idea of decentralized secure monetary transactions. The concepts behind it, however, can be extended to much more than just digital currencies. Ethereum attempts to do that, marrying the power of decentralized transactions with a Turing-complete contract system.

In this class, we will take a closer look at Ethereum and its practical applications.


This course is designed for someone with a growing interest in the inner workings of Bitcoin, Ethereum, cryptocurrencies, and Blockchain technology. Potential Crypto investors, curious developers, Founders, and knowledge seekers will all benefit greatly from this course.

Course Takeaways

  • Understand Ethereum as a whole

  • The Ethereum community and innovation mechanisms

  • The decentralized application landscape

  • Direct experience interacting directly with Ethereum in included exercise: Account creation, transaction auditing and interaction with a smart contract

  • Smart contract complexity and risks: The DAO

  • Blockchain Innovation Brainstorming and Q&A

  • Included activity – Guided discussion and brainstorming on the future use cases of blockchain technology

About The Instructor

Gurinder Bhangoo has been heavily involved in Cryptocurrencies since he mined his first Bitcoin transaction in 2013. Currently, he is the Director of Blockchain Technology for Fair Trade - who have developed a Ride-sharing app that utilizes a forked Ethereum Blockchain. His first Blockchain presentation was held at the Sunnyvale Plug & Play Tech Center back in 2014. Currently, Gurinder is teaching Ethereum Smart Contracts on the road (with Blockchain Innovation Lab) for Developers, Managers, & Enterprises. His knowledge of multiple Blockchains is invaluable for people who are trying to cut through the noise in this rapidly growing industry.

He is actively developing two Mobile DApps “BlockSteps” & “MarketMe”, which are both built on Ethereum Blockchains. Gurinder’s teaching philosophy mirrors that of the Innovation Lab's - encouraging student engagement and providing real-world examples to help his peers learn faster and more efficiently than they would in a traditional education style.
