★★★★

I have over 15 years experience with IT infrastructure & Software Development and this course presents an excellent overview of the enterprise Blockchain space. Though tailored for solution sales engineers its applicable to anyone. The only extra would have been to add more non-financial real world applications. For example the BC tool IBM has built with Walmart to track food supplies in the supply chain. Finally I look forward to the BlockChain book Joe is writing.
