  • Will the proposed solution reduce or remove the problems and pain points felt by users?
  • What should this solution prevent users from doing?
  • Do you need a solution ready for heavy use on day 1?
  • Is your solution idea enhanced by the use of Blockchain?
  • Does the use of Blockchain create a better end-user experience and how?
  • Has your business developed custom software solutions before?
  • What level of support are you going to need?
  • How big is the developer community?
  • Does your vision of the future align with the project or platform's vision of the future?
  • Does the platform aim to make new and significant contributions to the development space, or is it an efficiency/cost play?
  • Should the solution be a public or private Blockchain?
  • Should the solution be an open or closed Blockchain?

  • Hybrid solutions
  • Monetary exchanges?
How do I develop a Blockchain app?

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.

Everything was great, but the instructor wasted a lot of time talking about unrelated subjects (like demo-ing different programs, talking about other classes, and talks about how Excel/technology has changed) took up way too much time. The course could have been condensed or better focus would have been great
