Learn Solidity, Blockchain, and Smart Contracts in a Free 16-Hour Course

Blockchain engineers are in extreme demand. Almost every day they are building billion dollar applications.

We just released a full course on the freeCodeCamp.org YouTube channel that will teach you all about Solidity, the blockchain, and smart contracts. Solidity is an object-oriented programming language for writing smart contracts.
