Conference tracks

Blockchain technology is an infrastructure tool that is set to completely reshape how we interact and conduct business in the coming years, regardless of your industry segment. And our goal for BDT SuperSummit is to provide ample opportunities for you to learn something valuable through classroom training and conference presentations. So not only will you get to listen to blockchain experts deliver awesome presentations, but you’ll also have multiple opportunities to learn how to position yourself to succeed in the blockchain economy.

As such we’ve created the following conference tracks to help you plan your conference activities:

1. Beginner and Business Use Cases Track

The set of activities under this track should be your primary focus if you’re new to the blockchain space, or are still trying to understand exactly how the technology works, how it will impact your business and how to reframe your business using blockchain technology. So we recommend the following training opportunities: Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies 101; Business of Blockchains. Those two and several conference presentations and discussion panels designed for beginners and business executives should keep you busy, engaged and excited about blockchain technology throughout the conference.

2. Cryptocurrency Mining and Investing Track

This track is recommended for you if you’re involved in mining cryptocurrencies, want to learn how to mine, what to mine, and how to buy and invest in cryptocurrencies. Want to learn how to secure your cryptocurrencies using both hardware and software wallets? This track is for you too. You’ll definitely want to register for How to trade cryptocurrencies using technical and fundamental analyses. And there will be lots of presentations and at least one discussion panel around the same subject to keep you engaged throughout the conference.

3. The Law, Cryptocurrencies and Taxes Track

Want to learn all about the legal aspects of blockchain and digital ledger technologies, especially as it pertains to cryptocurrencies and what countries and jurisdictions offer the most friendly laws for setting up a blockchain and cryptocurrency startup? Then we highly recommend all the activities under this track. Blockchain for Legal Professionals is a special training program under this track for all legal professionals. It includes several presentations that can earn participants CLE and CPE credits. Blockchain for Auditors, Regulators and Law Enforcement is a 1-hour class also recommended for you. Besides those classes, several conference presentations, including those by Shamoil Shipchandler and David Hirsch, both of the SEC office in Dallas, will provide up to date information regarding the activities of the SEC around cryptocurrencies. Also look for a presentation by Wendy Jackson, International Tax Senior Manager for Deloitte.

4. Developer Track

If you’re a developer or software architect and you want to learn new coding skills that can set you apart in the blockchain economy, look no further than the following classes under the Developer Track. Blockchain and DLT for Developers & Architects; Introduction to Haskell, and why it’s ideal for developing cryptocurrency applications. And there will be lots of presentations that will appeal to developers like you.

You can tell from the foregoing that regardless of your interests, we have something that will keep you engaged and excited for taking the time to attend BDT SuperSummit.

Graduates of the course in those countries, who had zero knowledge of Haskell before taking the class, have gone on to become junior Haskell programmers. And this introductory, half-day class at BDT SuperSummit will be the first time the class has been taught outside of those three countries.
