Blockchain Spring School 2018

Following on the success of the Blockchain Autumn School in September 2017, the Blockchain Competence Center Mittweida (BCCM) of the University of Mittweida organized from March 5th until March 9th 2018 the Blockchain Spring School 2018. In comparison to the Autumn School last year, the number of participants was again increased significantly to a total of 164. Among the participants were not only students (mainly from the field of computer science and economics), but also company representatives who came from all over Germany or even from Austria for the event. In addition to numerous lectures by members of the BCCM and external speakers, there were once again four internships in which the participants were able to implement the theoretical knowledge directly on the PC. As in the previous year, the participants were individually cared for by tutors and student assistants of the BCCM during these hands-on sessions.


Blockchain Autumn School 2017

Mittweida war vom 18.09.2017 bis 22.09.2017 der Nabel Deutschlands in Sachen Blockchain-Technologie. Das im Juni 2017 gegründete Blockchain Competence Center Mittweida (BCCM) organisierte die Blockchain Autumn School – das weltweit erste Veranstaltungsformat dieser Art. 125 Teilnehmer aus Anwender- und Beratungsunternehmen, Hochschulen sowie Studierende aus ganz Deutschland nahmen an Theorie- und Praxissessions teil. Im Unterschied zu einer klassischen Konferenz ist die Blockchain Autumn School eine Veranstaltung zur Aus- und Weiterbildung, bei der keine besonderen Blockchain-Vorkenntnisse erforderlich sind und für die die Teilnehmer ein Zertifikat erhalten. Das Programm bestand aus Vorträgen und Praktika am Rechner zu Themen wie Kryptographie, Bitcoin, Ethereum und Smart Contracts.
