We’re excited to spotlight some of our BTC2019 teachers this year, and today, we’d like to introduce you to Andrew Warshaver. Andrew will be teaching “Programming Ethereum Smart Contracts in Solidity.” Check out our chat with Andrew to learn more:

How did you get involved in your subject area & why are you passionate about teaching it?

I first got involved in smart contract programming while working on Bitcoin Forward contracts at Hedgy, and further when working on exchange tech at tZero. I’m passionate about teaching others because decentralizing technology has the power to change the world, and spreading domain knowledge will help the movement.

Why do you think certifications and standards are important in the blockchain industry today?

Although there are some drawbacks to certifications and standards, they are an important part of furthering education and ensuring a certain level of competency in the industry.

Why have you decided to teach a session at #BTC2019?

I am grateful every day to be part of the amazing cryptocurrency community, and this is a great way to give back, especially since I love teaching.

We’re looking forward to attending Andrew’s master class at BTC2019! Make sure to join us by getting your tickets here.
