It is always an interesting challenge to design a Blockchain Technology awareness session for IT professionals with decades of experience into software engineering, software project management, business management, infrastructure management cutting across sectors and verticals.

Blockchain Technology Education and Evangelism is what we love the most, as it has opened up countless avenues for experiments and explorations into the fathoms of computer science, cryptography, mathematics and economics. It’s the true renaissance of engineering and economics.

Sometimes carefully crafted analogies with time tested computer science and software engineering paradigms such as cloud computing, peer to peer networks, distributed databases, consensus algorithms, agreement protocols, replicated state machines, concurrency control, concurrent data structures, wait-free synchronisation, global stabilisation time, etc. would be necessary as it would help us to convey the essential Blockchain concepts to an experienced software engineer and a computer science enthusiast.

When we try to educate a computer science student or a young startup professional, we can get started with the innovative concepts around game theory, decentralisation, cybersecurity, cryptography, consensus algorithms etc. It has to be a unique and differentiated pedagogical method in comparison with the model for experienced professionals.
