Meet Bernard

I’m Bernard Golden. I’ve been in software my entire career — hands-on developer to executive positions in charge of engineering and strategy. I’ve always worked at the leading edge of emerging technologies, driven by a fascination with the new (and, frankly, a tendency to get bored easily). I’ve moved from packaged software to open source to cloud computing as each has emerged and represented the most innovative framework in software use.

Over the past decade I helped dozens of organizations make the transition to cloud computing, and identified the best practices to help organizations adopt transformational technology.

Today, a new innovation platform is emerging — blockchain. Its impact will be even bigger than cloud computing, because its scope reaches far beyond information technology. It holds the potential to transform the way we do business.

That’s why I founded the Emerging Tech Academy — to help companies accelerate their move to blockchain by applying knowledge and the transformation best practices from the 50+ cloud transitions I directed. After all, when you’re beginning a journey to a new future, it helps to have an experienced guide.


Blockchain and Beyond

“It provides valuable information with key insights about blockchain technology that can’t be matched by any other course on the market.”

Blockchain is a revolutionary technology that holds the potential to transform our business environment. To succeed in your blockchain journey, you need to understand how it works, how it’s used, and where it’s going. And it’s all delivered online, so that you can build your blockchain knowledge foundation

Blockchain and Beyond can transform you from blockchain newbie to blockchain ninja — fast. It shortens your blockchain learning curve from weeks or months to days by giving you a complete blockchain knowledge foundation in eight modules and 10 hours of video education.
