The first part of this course covers basic concepts of blockchain, and no programming skills are required. However, to complete three of the four labs, you must understand basic software object-oriented programming and how to use the command line. It's also helpful, but not required, that you can write code in JavaScript.

When you complete the course, you should understand what a blockchain business network is, how to build and model a simple blockchain solution, and the role of the developer in creating blockchain applications.

If you successfully complete the course, you'll receive a certificate of completion and an Acclaim badge. You'll need to pass several end-of-section quizzes and a final exam that include multiple choice, true and false, and fill in the blank questions.

This course does not cover Bitcoin or cryptocurrency in detail.
