It was for about 6 years ago. An exciting opportunity to pass an internship in Schlumberger as a Field Engineer - in the biggest oil service company worldwide. I was sitting in my room trying to put together the slides for a self-presentation I needed for my interview. I called it "Seven tones of my individuality" and the first tone happened to be C. C stood for "Curiosity" and this is how the story begins. Being always curious and hungry for new knowledge and skills I couldn't avoid putting my eye on blockchain and cryptocurrencies. But being a Mechanical Engineer I had no idea what they are. This is when I came across this course Cryptocurrency Trading and ICO Investment Masterclass available on udemy.
December 2016. We had recently moved with my wife to a new flat in Moscow. I had just finished my Master Black Belt certification in Six Sigma from MSI (read about this in coming posts) and was looking for the next course. The situation at my work was quiet and boring, I hated that feeling, that my brain is under-challenged. I was looking for some information about process optimization (I worked as a Process Engineer at that time) when I found a Micromster's offering on edx from MIT. After reading a short introduction I took CTL.SC0x Supply Chain Analytics and immediately paid a certificate (150$) and have never regretted it.
