Since blockchain is a relatively new technology, and conventional methods of training are scarce, an online course can be extremely helpful for someone seeking a job as a blockchain developer.

Skills required to be a blockchain developer

There is plenty of blockchain related roles that businesses are looking to hire. For some, this might mean hiring leading experts with prior experience of running and creating distributed public ledger systems in production. However, often large corporates will look forward to building a team that revolves around a core of blockchain experts. In such cases, all that is needed in addition to engineering skills and strong software development skills is a firm understanding of the principles around blockchain systems.
However, blockchain is just one piece of a typical technology pile. Others who can prove to be a vital player around blockchain systems are engineers who specialize in networking or security, alongside those with core software development skills. If one has taken on an online course that helps to have an awareness of modern tech tools like docker containers and microservice architectures can be an asset too.
Qualifications required for blockchain developers
Alongside an obvious background in computer science or engineering, a further online blockchain training course can be especially beneficial. Experience as a back-end developer and a good strong knowledge of the fundamentals of cryptography is also crucial. Online courses these days also offer knowledge and understanding of Java and C, and these are the prerequisite for many companies seeking to hire a blockchain developer. For someone who has their own software project developed via GitHub, it can be an added.Blockchain Training
Responsibilities of a blockchain developer
Blockchain developers are expected to response for research, design, testing of blockchain systems and on top on that to take ownership of a lot more.  A fintech course can be an added asset as nowadays companies are shifting to numerous financial technology methods to assist with financial transactions to save company costs.
As a blockchain developer job comes with prerequisite knowledge of cryptography and common data structures and algorithms, one will most likely be in charge of huge codebases and peer-to-peer (P2P) networks. One might also be put in charge of ongoing projects that might ask to break down existing code and frameworks and building them from scratch. One might also be asked to evaluate existing and proposed blockchain structures.
Many companies also look for blockchain developers to offer some business insights and logic using new technology. The role might also need the developer to be responsible for integration and might be asked for evaluations based on business metrics and IT-related ones.
How to become a blockchain developer?
Keep up with the latest industry trends - it is imperative for developers to take responsibility for their own learning. Reaching out to people who can help accelerate your portfolio and attending events with speakers can go a long way.
Using Reddit to keep up to date with relevant discussions and using GitHub to learn from peers and share code can also prove to be immensely beneficial in someone’s career as a blockchain developer.
Be agile and be willing to adapt - given the new nature of blockchain space, if someone is looking to work as a developer, one needs to be very patient and willing to get stuck in. As it is still relatively new, there might not be any detailed documentation to rely on, and developers have to be comfortable looking to open source code and to learn on the job.
