Hi guys,

Kind of an over-asked question I am sure but here it goes;

Can anyone point me to some online courses which teaches about Bitcoin core and Blockchain technology specifically?
I am looking for options that take into consideration that the learner is a website developer with basic WAMP exposure.


EDIT -

Some books from Amazon which I am getting :

Blockchain: The Essential Quick & Easy Blueprint To Understand Blockchain Technology And Conquer The Next Thriving Economy

The Business Blockchain: Promise, Practice, and Application of the Next Internet Technology 2016

Blockchain: The Comprehensive Guide to Mastering the Hidden Economy 2016

Platform Revolution - Not directly related to Blockchain

Bitcoin and Blockchain Security 2016

Blockchain : A Complete Beginner's Guide - Master The Game

Blockchain 2017

The Case for Bitcoin 2016

The Bitcoin Tutorial: Develop an intuitive understanding of the currency and blockchain technology 2016

Blockchain Technology (Fintech Series by Innovation Edge) 2016

The Science of the Blockchain

Blockchain: The Untapped Goldmine Of Blockchain That Virtually No One Knows About 2017

Blockchain: Down The Rabbit Hole 2016

Mastering Bitcoin: Unlocking Digital Cryptocurrencies Best Seller / Most Popular

Git link : https://github.com/bitcoinbook/bitcoinbook

As expected, most of these books explain concepts rather than getting down & dirty with building anything with an academic approach. That is not to say that there is absolutely no such 'explanations' here. Its there just not as much as I would have liked it to be.
I have bought one book currently and its trash, I haven't linked it here.


Future edits :

There is a course in coursera.org, is quite good, they leave tasks for implementing some features about the btc. You can find it in here.

There is no magic happening, all you need to do is to learn #Basics #C++ and #Java, though there are not many people yet understand the whole thing, but I believe if you know how codes work you'll understand how to use blockchain's code as well. the important part is the concept.

Haha well it sure does look like magic even to someone who has a coding background.

My own history with C# is very limited. The intention behind this topic is to arrange all the resources there is so it is easy for someone to find it all in one place and start tweaking with the code & contribute towards the whole network. Eventually I am foreseeing the development of a website like MIT open Uni or The Khan academy possibly with the robustness of Codeacademy and the modularity of Udemy like sites.

I believe this would help tremendously. I am not aware of any such place where even the concepts are taught.

I don't know of any course who actually guide you through the code of an altcoin, no one wants to share this, and even if you have coding skills and know the languages, it doesn't means that you will know how it works, i think that your best bet is to get to work, make cryptos, fix some objectives and try to achieve them.
This is how i did to learn, it was hard, but now i can say that i know enough about blockchains and how they work, how to make them, how to interact with them using JSON and other technologies.
You may be interested in ethereum also as it is developer based coin, i mean, made for developers as common people can't get to use it because it is too complicated for them, yet you can have a lot of usefull informations from it.

I'm pretty sure there are some but I don't think they'd be free.. It's still a specialized sort of thing

I'm reading this book, it's about blockchain programming written by a member from this forum Nicholas Dorier,
i think this ebook is really helpfull especially for newbie in blockchain programming like me so far the book is understandable. If you're interested just visit this link https://aois.blob.core.windows.net/public/Blockchain%20Programming%20in%20CSharp.pdf  i hope you like it.

Thanks for this thread as i am also eager to learn the blockchain technology and how they develop this system. I know that solid background in programming is needed, but mostly I saw that something like they are only cloning the bitcoin platform.

I hope this link can add to resource https://medium.com/zapchain-magazine/the-best-resources-for-learning-to-build-bitcoin-and-block-chain-applications-8de1953506f5#.ta5rmir3q

Hello Op, I've done some searching in google and the web, I found few youtube videos about that. they are basic videos, but still helpful.
I don't know about the core and deep technology. no one yet took this big responsibility of teaching new comers about bitcoin technology.

I am trying to put up baby steps in this matter and perhaps make this idea a reality.
I dont want to assemble just for myself but for every serious developer who wants to get into the core of BTC development, which after 4 years of trading BTC is still a mystery to me.

I have seen those as well, I have also scoured and downloaded everything Udemy like sites have on these topics as well but I found them to be very basic.

Very interesting, I'll get in touch & get that course as well.

But everyone must understand that this is not an attempt to understand for only myself.

One of the best places to get started is this:
https://bitcoin.org/en/bitcoin-for-developers

And it's all free, but you do have to get a lot of additional information yourself regarding actual programming.

I've also looked on Udemy (paid video tutorials), but they don't seem to be offering much in terms of actual programming tutorials for Bitcoin specifically. It's more trading oriented and general Bitcoin knowledge.

Keep an eye out on this board as well as this board : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1791834.msg17867022#msg17867022

I am working on something as soon as I have something to share I will post the updates of my new project in these 2 boards.
Hopefully more people will appreciate it.

The search for an academic approach to Blockchain continues. I have linked to some of the study materials I found interesting.
Beware, there are other books that are simply lifting projects off Git & flipping through concepts without delving deep. Avoid such books.

Are those free of cost ? Do you think you will be practically able to implement whatever you learn in the books ?I don't think so.You might want to start with reading about Cryptography and implementing a few algos to see how things work.Once your basics about encryption techniques and network protocols are solid,you can directly start learning the bitcoin protocol.On your journey,you will learn the blockchain as well.
What I'm really implying is don't waste too much time getting knowledge,start implementing it from day 1.

Exactly.Instead one can enjoy checking the code for a few open source projects on github.

Well I know for a fact that some of these books have already been pirated and can be found online. I have downloaded a few myself and buying the rest.
And no, to be honest, I havent found a "free" comprehensive or academic approach to teaching blockchain tech to beginners. I plan on changing that. That is happening but in the meanwhile I too must understand some of it, as it stands right now I understand very little. Whatever path I choose to follow might also help someone else in my position. That is why I am documenting the books and resources here.

Also, "free" may never happen out there and I do not know much to be able to 'teach' people and those that do might not be interested at all. BUT an academic approach will happen and is probably already in the works somewhere, until that 'free' happens, I will do my best to distribute the information that already exists.
