Changes, changes and more changes!

Hey you, hey you,

I am still here, yes. I am still strong and continue to “hack” around. I do not want to apologize for leaving you alone for so long. I try to do my best for the community and for self-improvement, and today seems like a great day to give you an update. {sunny day in Berlin}

So, lets start from the end. I am currently in Berlin. I left my job as a Blockchain engineer and some really good proposals back in my home country, in order to get to know the “world” better and learn from the best. I am writing this post from a nice and huge wooden library, in the center of Berlin and it is a really good start. I am actively searching for a job, both in decentralization/blockchain/privacy and security sectors, so feel free to give some tips if you are from around, or contact me to grab a beer.

In other news, this was a hell of a year. I completed my academic life (yes I am leaning towards not starting a PhD), I got more into development because of my job and really liked it (Go, Solidity and other languages related to blockchain development), I developed some courses for Hakin9 including Attack and Defense in Blockchain technologies and Penetration testing with Raspberry Pi, I did some great talks in meetups and conferences regarding blockchain and decentralization (you can find my talks in my youtube channel) and released some articles in the BAD-ASS 2600 magazine.

OK, this not at all my whole year, but this is the stuff that stood out and that I want to share with you. As I said, I am now in Berlin, zeroing down the counter, and searching for the next big thing. I don’t know if I will work, if I will create a team, or start a PhD. I just know that I want to create things, share with others and get to know the world. And I don’t mind if one does not know me in the end. Because you will know me.

 

All great changes are preceded by chaos.

Introduction to Bitcoin and Blockchain Technologies (Greek)

Are you still here,

As I told you in an earlier post, I have many things that I currently work in! One of them is my recent engagement with Blockchain and Decentralized Ledger Technologies. I started around a year ago with my master degree thesis, with title “PKI Decentralization with Blockchain Technologies” and after that I started working as a Blockchain Engineer in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

This sector is really interesting, with many challenges at its current state, and that’s what I like about it. I also work with a great team of people, and this week I was lucky enough to talk in the Machine Learning and Blockchain join meetup in Thessaloniki about Bitcoin and Blockchain topics. Suddenly, the talk was in Greek and I upload a video capture of it on YouTube. In case I see interest in the video, I will try to add subtitles to it, but it needs some work, so we will see.

I want to thank the people that helped me reach this stage and make this talk, especially Dr. Karasavvas, and I will keep you updated for future talks and events. Also, thanks to everyone that joined me in this meetup, and if you have any questions please add it to the comments bellow or in the YouTube video.
