Blockchain for beginners?

2Bits
The idea behind blockchain fascinated me and I believe it would captivate my attention to learn more and create my own blockchain. Is this too lofty of a goal who has almost zero programming background? Would I need to learn a language prior to learning about blockchain(if so, which one?)?

Iím hoping someone here could help offer me actionable steps or directions to create and learn more about blockchain. Any free recommended online courses would also be helpful if you can share.
Thank you

It's not a lofty goal, well within your reach. There is plenty of information that should help you start exploring.

Start at https://hyperledger.org

There are tutorials and overview videos on how to think about Blockchain.

Setting up your own block chain using Hyperledger Fabric:

https://hyperledger-fabric.readthedo..._concepts.html

Languages and technologies that will help you:
Go (Golang)
Javascript (Node)
Linux & Docker Containers

Good luck on your journey.

To learn Blockchain as a beginner, I will suggest starting with the basics of Blockchain and how it works. Go through the concepts like mining, minting, consensus, Cryptography, nodes, decentralization, etc. For a good understanding, it is better to start a course from any online source like Udemy, Khanacadmey, cryptozombies, etc.
