One of the reasons I like the project is the caliber of the founding team. They are driven, well-credentialed, and bring accomplished domain experience.

The project aims to be open to anybody, so I thought a good idea would be for those of us lacking domain experience to get up to speed on the fundamentals and the language. Here are some free courses from some very well respected Universities all over the world.

These courses are all 100% free, online, and time efficient, with many lectures broken down into 15-25 minute increments that can be squeezed into spare time.

I'm halfway through the Princeton Bitcoin classes and highly enjoying it, and alot of technical lightbulbs are clicking.

Add any class links you might find helpful.
