diploma in blockchain technology and application

Diploma in Blockchain Technology and Applications will introduce you to Blockchain technology and its applications. It begins by clearly defining exactly what Blockchain is, how the Blockchain works as an immutable ledger of transactions and why it is said to be tamper-proof. You will learn about the consensus mechanism and also about a process called Hashing. You will learn about rules and structure of the whole Blockchain system while taking into account the system’s requirements.

You will also learn about smart contract, how they are created, and how they can be used. You will be introduced to the general concepts of cryptography and how information and data can be encrypted and decrypted. You will learn about the differences between public and private keys and how to use them to securely execute Blockchain transactions. Next, you will be introduced to the Ethereum blockchain. You will learn about how it works and how it differs from the Bitcoin blockchain. You will also learn about smart contracts and how to create and deploy them on the Ethereum Blockchain. Lastly, you will be exposed to several aspects of Blockchain security existing in the Blockchain environment today. You’ll gain a detailed overview of Blockchain security issues, including threats and risk mitigation.

There are many advantages to using blockchain technology compared to other traditional technologies:

  • With blockchain, your business process will be better protected with the help of a high level of security.
  • The hacking threats against your business will also be reduced to a greater extent.
  • As blockchain offers a decentralized platform, there is no need to pay for centralized entities or intermediaries’ services.
  • Enterprise blockchain technology enables organizations to use different levels of accessibility.
  • Organizations can do faster transactions with the help of blockchain.
  • Account reconciliation can be automated.
  • The transactions done are transparent and hence, easy to track.

1. Security purposes

  • The digital world is filled with hackers looking to breach information or steal data from sources. With blockchain technology, the information stored has robust security making it impossible for one to hack.

2. Transparency

  • Since everything is displayed on the network, there are very fewer chances that there would be any kind of discrepancy that can be created.

3. It is inexpensive

  • Most of the traditional financial models that are available in the market are expensive, however, with blockchain it is inexpensive.

4. Less transaction time

  • An individual can send, receive money and financial documents within a couple of minutes, this reduces the burden of waiting for hours together.

5. Financial efficiency is increased

  • Decentralized blockchain allows one to make transactions from individual to individual without the involvement of the third party. This help saves a lot of money while making transactions, unlike traditional banks.

6. Protect businesses from fraud

  • The blockchain is open source ledgers which is why it is very easy to identify if fraud has taken place since every transaction is recorded on them.

7. The industries disrupted by blockchain

  • The banking sector isn’t the only industry that has been impacted by blockchain technology. Other sectors like law firms or law enforcement are other industries that can be disrupted by blockchain technologies.

With its unprecedented power and usefulness, Python has become of the hottest and fastest growing programming language since it was launched and is become one of the buzzwords in Digital Transformations together with other domains in the Pantheon of Technology – Data Science and Big Data.

Data Science is a multi-disciplinary skill in Statistics/ Data Mining, Computer Science and Business Management. Data Science was regarded as the solution to provide scalable insights based on Big Data. The advancement in Technology makes these domains and areas visible to almost all big industries today. Big enterprises invested huge amount of money to install Data Science team in their organization to take care and manage Big Data infrastructures and architecture.

Prior to Pandemic Outbreak, these companies are continuously reaping success and not being swayed down because of the successful deployment of Artificial Intelligence Technology, Machine Learning, Automation, Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain and other areas of Data Science.

Skills in Statistics, Data Mining or Data Wrangling was successfully used and applied to these companies and areas because of the Computer Programming Language such as Python. Business Models was carefully curated by experts in Business Management. Thus, Data Science was regarded as the sexiest job in the 20th Century because it encapsulated a wide spectrum of knowledge, skills, and expertise.

Based on Stack Overflow Developer’s Survey in 2019, Python was regarded as the second and the most preferred language with 73% of the developers are choosing it over other programming languages and is expected to dominate the Marketplace for Programming Languages.

This course is intended for everyone who are aiming to upskills their programming skills. This is intended for all type of users from Novice to Expert. Anyone who have no prior experience in programming can take this course and for anyone who would like to learn the Python Programming Language for upskilling purposes.

Why Do We Need to Learn Python?

Python is very useful in general aside from being an open-source programming language. It was used by Amazon, Google, Reddit, Instagram, and all other big companies around the world.

  • Python is user-friendly programming language – Python was able to simplify coding process just like transforming complicated coding to make it simpler and more straightforward. This what makes Python easy to learn and understand that even kids can able to understand and use.
  • Python makes us more Productive– Instead of us taking further education to know the old school programming languages, Python makes everything simple. It makes the Programming task a lot easier compared with other programming languages.
  • Python is very Dangerous in a Positive way – It can used for anything. It is very powerful as you can generate insights based from actual sentiments of the people, It can replicate things through machine learning algorithms, It can automate things through automation, It can replicate human through the development of virtual agents and the like. Because of its powers, it comes with great responsibility. It can be dangerous if you will use its powers to connive with evil who have a lot of destruction activities which includes all forms of fraud.
  • Python is a language for creating a script – You can directly type your script to its interpretation environment such as IDLE and many other. It does not require compilation like any other languages. You can easily detect and identify errors in your scripts. This makes a programming a fan activity.
  • Python is a Cross-Platform Programming Language – Anyone can use it if you have the motivation and purpose of using it. If you are in non-analytics field but you want to learn this because you have a goal and motivation, you can easily use it. You can use and install Python on Windows, Mac, Linux and from other platform like Raspberry Pi. You can also run Python on Android and IOS tablets.
  • Python uses dynamic typing of variables – When you start programming, you do not actually need to explain the machine what the variables is supposed to be. You can just write your variables as it is.
  • Python is very collaborative language – there are so many experts have written libraries. You do not need to build and create your own library as there are available libraries in place. All you can do is to install.
  • Python is Open-Source Programming Language – It does not require you to pay for licenses. You can download and run python from different distribution channels like such as Anaconda.
