Last year post lockdown, with the thought of getting into AI, I took python as a hobby and started learning from online resources, followed by building a couple of projects and finally getting job as a python developer. I would be totally wrong if I call myself as a fortunate one in this case because credit goes to family and friends who helped me in the run and also to some efforts from me.

First project in the job was something which was built by a third party in the span of 6 months by a small group of developers…

This post is totally dedicated to how one can start teaching random slum kids. Their is no requirement of a blackboard, chalk, marker, walls or even a roof. You require:-

  1. Time

By time, it is meant, you require minimum 10 months, daily at least 1 hour. If you plan to do it for less than 6 months, dont execute it(if doing it alone). Setting kids’ future is a long marathon.

2. Passion


3. Plan and execution

What are you going to teach? How are you going to teach? Will they listen to you?

A block comprises of two parts:- Block header and Transactions list


Block header contains vital info of block such as hash, merkle root etc. This is what an actual block header looks like

This is what a traditional record book looks like. The page’s image is self explanatory. While it is easy to understand what this bunch of white turned yellow pages does, it is also easy to be tampered with. This is what an “old school” organization’s file look like. Let’s consider this, data on the first page will be numbered from suppose 1–10, then data on the next page will be numbered from 10–20 which forms like a chain of pages where one page is linked with the next one and so on. …
