So here’s a suggestion to start

https://www.coursera.org/learn/cryptocurrency

This is a pretty good, free lecture series about cryptocurrency and blockchain that also explores bitcoin as a case study. The lectures should be fairly accessible IMO for someone who has little programming knowledge. The assignments won’t be but it’s not like you have to do them to watch the videos

At least it should give a better technical understanding and maybe some hints on where to go next for you

Where can I find a more in-depth look at the technology behind Ethereum?

I'm trying to learn more about cryptocurrency, from a development standpoint as well as a user/miner standpoint. I've been looking around for some more in-depth discussions of the technology behind cryptocurrencies like Ethereum, but aside from a Coursera course someone posted here before everything I find is basically an idiots guide to mining.

Does anyone know of a resource that looks at cryptocurrency, and Ethereum specifically, from a more detailed perspective? Not just this magical money making scheme, but the actual tech that makes it work, and the economics that underpin it?

Para quien le concierna, les dejo un curso de la U de Princeton gratuito y con subs. en inglés que habla de la técnica y ciencia del bitcoin y las criptomonedas en general. https://www.coursera.org/learn/cryptocurrency Es importante saber de qué se trata y cómo funciona antes de "arriesgarse".

What is your opinion on the 'bitcoin and cryptocurrency' coursera course? Any other recommended intro text/courses for cryptocurrencies/crypto?

I signed up for the coursera course in September (https://www.coursera.org/learn/cryptocurrency) and subsequently bought the book used in the course.

Looks like this course has been offered in the past. Has anyone taken it? If so, I'm interested in hearing your opinions.

I'm looking for a course that will introduce me to cryptography and cryptocurrency. Are there any others you guys would recommend?

Also, are these the series of videos from the course? https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNcSSleedtfyDuhBvOQzFzQ/videos

Great link for self study. Free PDF versions of Princeton's Crypto text and Andreas Antonopoulos's Mastering Bitcoin, as well as the syllabus for Berkeley's class so you can poke through stuff on your own.

Notably, Princeton's Crypto Coursera Course as well.

Here's a list of 430+ free online programming/CS courses (MOOCs) with feedback(i.e. exams/homeworks/assignments) that you can start this month (September 2016)

Unfortunately I couldn't fit all the courses here because of Reddit's 40,000 character limit. So I removed older self-paced courses from the list. These courses are always open for registration.

They can be found here:

~300 Self Paced Programming and Computer Science courses

I have also started categorizing the courses listed here by the programming language they are taught in. You can find the list here:

~250 MOOCs categorized by Programming Language

This is not the complete list of MOOCs starting in September 2016, just the ones relevant to this community. The complete list of courses starting in September 2016 can be found over at Class Central (1600+ courses). I maintain a much bigger list of these courses over at Class Central

NOTE: Unfortunately Coursera has converted many of its courses to 'Premium Grading'. Which basically means that you need to pay if you want to access graded assignments :(. You can also apply for Financial Aid - https://learner.coursera.help/hc/en-us/articles/209819033-Apply-for-Financial-Aid

The Princeton University Cryptocurrency coursera is a good free resource to understand the fundamentals: https://www.coursera.org/learn/cryptocurrency

B9Lab offers a (paid) ethereum developer course which goes over fundamentals as well but also dives into smart contact coding: https://academy.b9lab.com/

I’d be interested in finding other resources if anyone has any :)

I'm assuming it is available to all. I skipped all the assignments because they are actual coding and I just wanted to learn about bitcoin. Good luck and I loved it!

Start with an online introduction to computer programming course (Udemy is a good, inexpensive resource for tech courses). Coursera has a crypto currency course: Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Technologies | Princeton University https://www.coursera.org/learn/cryptocurrency But you’ll be in way over your head if you start with it.

Princeton University just started a free course at Coursera and it's pretty comprehensive.

Track some coins/projects you like. Read the white papers, check out the teams etc. Don't chase the pumps, buy on the dips. Avoid the scam shit. You'll learn the hard way, like pretty much everyone does, me thinks. I'd recommend this course as a general intro to crypto, it helped me quite a bit. Good luck bro and welcome to the party. Hold onto your ass.

Hello! I can see your post loud and clear. A good place to start could be an online course such as one provided by Coursera. I am unnsure if it provides technical advice regarding training as I am completing only the second week:

Good luck!

I quit bitcoin after 2 years investing due high fee transactions and it was a relief.

Not only due the fee transaction, but also about the posts I've been seeing from the core, they are acting up like little kids.

I'm just a developer who loves cryptocurrency, and as you guys can see from my last posts here on reddit I got in a lot of trouble due the high fees market, I panicked thinking I wouldn't be able to retrieve my money back, so I paid $10 dolar fee to get out of this game.

After I paid that much of a fee, I got all my transactions confirmed, even the ones I was complaining here as you can see in my reddit. (Steam gave my money back in credit in the steam store due the double buy on the same game, thanks bitcoin...) Also, I'm not lying just to support some ideia here since I noticed there's a fight with another sub-reddit(/r/Bitcoin), I actually identified with this sub-reddit because here we talk about the problems.

You can check all my spendings, I used only one wallet(I know): https://blockchain.info/address/14aKDyMi2R9CmEi9WLieMEWS4EZrnFTjxU It's not a lot of money, but it was something to me. And it's all gone anyway, I withdraw everything and sold in the bitcoin market. And I was so happy that I did. I'm not saying I won't be back, but I sure won't be while we still have this problem of high fees, ages to confirm a simple transaction, block size, etc..

Look, I want to love bitcoin, but things are not helping. I'll be doing acourse about cryptocurrency on the coursera to be able to know what I'm really doing next time, if anyone want to check it out too here's the link: https://www.coursera.org/learn/cryptocurrency

I'm looking into Ethereum right now, seems good project, but I won't invest until I have more knowledge about the topic, it was some scary and stressed days this week.

https://www.coursera.org/learn/cryptocurrency - very good intro to bitcoin and crypto in general, although a little bit dated
