Previous Testimonials on the Blockchain Developer Program:
 “I wanted to take the Kingsland Blockchain Developer course because in tech you always have to stay sharp. The course was quite hands-on and challenging. Lots of exercises allowed me to dive in and test stuff out for myself. Blockchain is now a focus for me, and I’m currently in the process of assembling a team and securing financing for a new company and project that will include blockchain technology.”
– Alexander A., Bulgaria

“The Kingsland blockchain developer training program is intense, and so it should be; there’s so much information to get through! Every day there is news about blockchain and the course accounts for that – if it were at a normal pace, we wouldn’t learn the skills we need!”
– George P., Bulgaria

“The best part of the course was creating decentralised applications using Ethereum; I took the course because I wanted to know how Blockchain works, but I didn’t realise what a huge impact Kingsland’s course would have on my life.”
– Kim G., Philippines

“The course is very intensive with a lot of hands-on exercises. The trainers are very good at explaining the materials in a simplified manner, and there was no restraint in their knowledge sharing. They were patient and welcomed all of our questions which made the course enjoyable.”
– Calvin Tan K.S., Singapore
