What Are Our

"Product managers and the business side of a company tend to live in the logic, so understanding the limitations and capabilities of Smart Contracts was really helpful. I was able to absorb aspects of the Ethereum platform that I feel I would have missed or had trouble internalizing without the support of the instructor and my classmates around me."
