Coinsilium announces First Blockchain Tech Lab Developer Event in London during April

Week-long event in Central London covers blockchain, smart contracts, asset digitisation & a weekend blockathon.

Coinsilium, the London-listed blockchain technology investment and development company, is proud to announce its inaugural “Blockchain Tech Lab”.

The Blockchain Tech Lab has been launched to address growing concerns about the blockchain skills gap. Taking place at Runway East at Finsbury Square, in the heart of London’s tech and financial districts, the course runs between 11th and 17th April 2016.

The week-long series of developer-focused sessions brings experts from leading blockchain technology companies around the world to upskill and teach attendees about different applications of the blockchain. Sessions are split between both practical and theory to enable participants to truly grasp the nature and potential of the blockchain applications in the presence of those who built them. The week culminates with a weekend “blockathon” event, which is open to the public to participate.

‘We are delighted to be launching the week-long Blockchain Tech Lab and to welcome developers who are looking at working within the blockchain space.  We are bringing together top minds from around the world who are at the forefront of blockchain innovation, such as Rootstock, Blockstream and Ethcore. Given the growing skills gap  across all industries currently looking at blockchain solutions, this course serves as an excellent way for developers to familiarise themselves with the technology and to practice their new skills and understanding.’ said Hakim Mamoni, CTO of Coinsilium.

The five-day course is split into different blockchain specialities with each one taught by different experts from leading companies.
