More and more companies want to integrate the blockchain ecosystem into their business. Alyra, a French remote blockchain school, offers a short and intense training to train in new professions and issues related to the blockchain and its ecosystem.
A public and incensurable technology
After talking a lot about cryptocurrencies, how blockchain works can still remain a bit vague for the general public. ” Blockchain technology is a public accounting register in which the information entered is unalterable. You can’t censor what’s written inside, explains Jérémy Wauquier, President of Alyra. We write with a public identity and we are sure that it is the right public identity and not another. “
If the most common use of the blockchain is to send and receive cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc.), a multitude of other actions are possible thanks to the blockchain. ” We can set up smart contracts, place bets on a future event with money transfer, develops Jérémy Wauquier. A lot of projects are started, in the insurance sector, real estate, art, video games … “
This technology cannot be censored by anyone. ” The blockchain is a decentralized application, which does not need government approval. Users use tokens created for the occasion. It is a form of autonomous organization in which people collaborate with each other following rules defined together. The main challenge, whatever the field, is the exchange of economic value »Continues Jérémy Wauquier.
Three blockchain training courses
Increasingly in demand by companies, blockchain has therefore seen the emergence of new professions. To meet the demand, we need specialized and competent people. Alyra, a blockchain training school created in 2019, first started training blockchain developers, then expanded her education. Thereby, three programs Distance learning courses are offered: Developer, Consultant and Decentralized Finance (DeFi), the finance of tomorrow. ” These training courses take place over 12 weeks, with three sessions per year. There are no prerequisites, except for developer training where development knowledge is required. Students benefit from over 65 hours of lectures to watch, 400 hours of tests to practice, and 100 hours of live with referring experts. “
In 2022, Alyra reached the milestone of over 1,250 students since its creation. During the training, the latter carry out a series of projects, including a final project carried out in a group, consisting of at least one learner for each program (Consultant, Developer, Decentralized Finance). The project is accompanied by a decentralized functional application presented to a jury of experts.
Develop new learning paths
Alyra wants to develop new projects to offer students a more comprehensive view of the blockchain and its use. ” In addition to our three training courses, we already offer a six-week module on NFTs. We are also preparing an introductory blockchain program for beginners and a Token omics program, on how to correctly determine the rules of collaboration within a blockchain. This is a very important topic within blockchain technology “Says Jérémy Wauquier.
Blockchain technology is developing more and more and affects all business fields. With this exponential development of the job market for blockchain-related jobs, such as that of developer, consultant or decentralized finance expert, Alyra trains future blockchain experts and renews herself based on developments in this technology. The next training sessions will take place on January 23, 2023. Information for registration and to learn more about the training courses for the professions of the blockchain can be found on the website of the French school of blockchain: www.alyra.fr.
