Switzerland: Could blockchain programming in one of Europe’s most prestigious nations be for you?
To start this week we’re moving to Switzerland, one of Europe’s most well-known nations, whether it is for the skiing to be found there, the chocolate, or even the world-renowned banking system, it’s likely all of us have an image of the European country formed as a result of the extensive media coverage it has received over the years.
However, while these are all positives which help to give the country a good global image, we won’t be looking at them today, in fact, we’ll be diving back into a topic we’ve covered quite a bit on our blog, the blockchain, but this time taking a slightly different approach, blockchain programming.
What is blockchain programming?
First of all, it’s worth noting that there is no one blanket definition for what blockchain programming is, in fact, there are two different kinds. To make understanding these complex ideas easier, we’ll separate them below:
Blockchain architecture: Essentially, this is the foundations of a blockchain, the way it works, including rules and regulations which are coded into the architecture of the blockchain before it is actually released. This is crucial in the programming process as it will underlie the entire blockchain and so is important to get right!
Decentralised Apps (DApps): In today’s technological era, it would be pretty safe to assume we’re all familiar with Apps and what they are. However, DApps are different not necessarily in the services they provide, but rather how they are run. Where a normal App would have a server somewhere with information and data running to and from it and also being stored within it, DApps have their backend code operating through a decentralised network.
If this has you intrigued, there are a number of other things to consider when starting your journey as a blockchain programmer, including the platform you’ll use, for example Ethereum, and also the language you want to code in. These are technical elements and maybe even a bit daunting, but there is a vast array of tools and reading to help you in your research.
However, self-teaching is not for everyone, and this is where programming courses become appealing, and brings us to today’s theme, Switzerland. There are a number of courses available in the European nation, and maybe one is perfect for you.
Why should I train in Switzerland?
Considering the rise of 200% in demand for Blockchain between 2017 and 2020, it’s evident that this is a sector that will experience continued growth for a while. So why Switzerland? Not only are some of the most well-renowned financial services found there, but also some of the most highly rated Blockchain programming courses.
By 2024, the Blockchain market is expected to be worth US$20 billion, and although such a scale is impressive, it also means it’s going to be important to stand out from the crowd when it comes to Blockchain technology. So, by training in Switzerland, a nation of global prestige and coined one of the world’s most innovative nations, the programming environment appears perfect for prospective Blockchain programmers looking to distinguish themselves from the rest.
What work is available to blockchain programmers?
Here’s a list of some jobs that Blockchain programmers can find themselves in to give you an idea:
· Legal services
· Data science
· Business development
· Smart contract development
The wide range of possible jobs is evidence enough to suggest that Blockchain programming has extreme potential, and if you’re interested in taking this step, perhaps Switzerland could be your next destination.
