ConsenSys Launches ‘Jobs Kit’ to Help Devs Enter the Blockchain Industry

Ethereum development studio ConsenSys has launched a blockchain “job kit” to guide developers wishing to enter the growing blockchain space.

The kit also offers a glossary section on key blockchain and cryptography terms such as consensus algorithms, sharding, token standards and hash functions, as well as providing links on the places devs can start their search for employment.

Citing another study by professional services firm PwC, ConsenSys said that 77 percent of companies are well on their way towards taking blockchain-based solutions and products into production, while only 14 percent currently have no plans to integrate blockchain.

Opinions on blockchain, distributed networks, and web3 are also “rapidly changing” amongst software developers building on web2, ConsenSys said, citing another report from Deloitte, which said a majority (67.6 percent) of developers maintained a positive opinion on blockchain tech.

Review: 'Machines Like Me' – Ian McEwan's foray into artificial intelligence feels false

note-7Alan Turing, note-8who in real life died in 1954, has note-9achieved a breakthrough in artificial intelligence that is so seismic it becomes possible to produce synthetic humans note-10with unsettlingly lifelike capabilities, characteristics and feelings.

note-11Also in this world (in which “the future kept arriving”) is Charlie, an online trader and artificial-intelligence enthusiast, whonote-12 at the age of 32, has suffered a series of financial and professional failures.

The android furnishes Charlie with a windfall on the stock exchange, performs all manner of practical tasks around the house and proves to be a dab-hand in the kitchen Charlie is one of the few people who can afford to buy one of the androids, thanks to an inheritance bequeathed to him by his mother.

In return, Adam furnishes Charlie with a windfall on the stock exchange, performs all manner of practical tasks around the house and proves himself to be a dab-hand in the kitchennote-31, with chicken tarragon note-32a particular specialitynote-33 of the android.

Soon enough, a note-34sort of love triangle ensues, which starts out pleasantly enough before taking a turnnote-35 when Adam – who by now note-36note-37is able to override his off switch – alerts Charlie to a dark moment from ­Miranda’s past for which Adam believes she should be note-38jailed.
