Entry Profile & Prerequisites

This program is inclined towards serious developers looking to gain a strong grip on the design and architecture of professional solutions on the Cardano blockchain. The learner is expected to have a good understanding of mobile application development or full-stack web development. The learner will also be provided with a free custom e-learning course on full stack web / mobile development course as a refresher.

Learners should expect to spend around 6 to 8 hours a week practicing what they learn during the latter part of the sessions, completing assignments and doing independent research to strengthen their understanding of the material covered.

Exit Profile

The Learner after completion of this program will:

  • Have a strong understanding of how commercial applications can be built.
  • Be able to Ideate, design and develop an end-to-end use case, potentially for a startup.
  • Understand various aspects of :
    • Architecture & design.
    • UI / UX basics, working with UI / UX Designers.
    • Build processes, Continuous Integration & Deployment pipelines.
    • Server side computing
    • Testing, Formal verification and software engineering best practices.

What will you learn?

After completing the program, learners will have a strong understanding of how commercial applications can be built and ideate, design and develop an end-to-end use case, potentially for a startup. Concepts such as UI/UX, build processes, continuous integration, deployment pipelines, server-side computing and software engineering best practices will also be explored.


The Cardano Solutions Architect will allow developers to ideate, design and develop potential commercial applications for their startups. Building on the Cardano Developer Professional program, this program focuses on use case analysis, tokenomics and other such concepts. Emphasis will also be placed on real-world blockchain designs and the best practices of software engineering.
