On December 8, the theme presented will be „Do I need blockchain in my business?“, which will guide participants to identify opportunities and pains for the application of blockchain and considerations on business models based on this theme.

Finally, the last episode – „How to implement a Bitcoin Lifestyle project? – takes place on December 15 and will talk about the components of a blockchain solution for business and features of productive projects and their benefits.

At the end of each episode, participants will be able to complete a learning trail on the subject on Microsoft Learn, a free online training platform that offers interactive learning for Microsoft initiatives.

The content, free and open to the public, will be available at Microsoft Reactor São Paulo, a space for learning and technical sharing of developers and startups launched in June this year. Due to social isolation, Microsoft Reactor activities are taking place virtually.
