Ask your question…

Hi Preethi, Thanks for the AMA.

What is TruStory? When can we expect detailed information about your new company? :)

What’s your average workday like?

Hi, Preethi!

So nice to see you on Hashnode.

What are your approaches — personal curriculum, pair coding, specific "production" tasks which turn out to be educational — to mentor junior developers in an organisation? What (combination(s)) have you seen which work(s) best, if any?

Are there any anecdotal events which you can share with us, in this regard?

Thank you so much!

Hi Preeti ! How to stick to one programming language , if I find another one too distracting for me :) ?

Hey Preethi!

There are very few resources on the web for any technology, which would enable an individual to write production ready code. Most of them are snippets or beginner level tutorial. Even every other new intermediate tutorial or even whole courses sneak away by saying

This code is of course not production ready.

What, according to you, can be done to enable production ready collaboration and learning for self learners like myself, who do not necessarily live in cities or have a programming job, but want to work on their own ideas and launch products?

Hi Preethi, What are your professional goals going forward?

What should everyone know about blockchains?

As a developer working on technologies such as, C#, javascript etc, where would one start learning blockchain and understand its use cases?

Does Blockchain technology add real value and can it survive a potential bursting of the crypto bubble?

What's your advice for the beginner Devs/General public trying to learn Blockchain technologies?

I would like to learn blockchain and want to implement the blockchain into my existing php application.

I was totally confused and still struck with where to start and how to implement.

Please help me :(

What do you think is a priority to make a general adoption of the blockchain-related technologies by non-blockchain native businesses ? Do you think that smart contracts are suitable anywhere we wish to formalize economic terms between parts ?

If you were to build a decentralized social network today, what tools and technologies would you choose?

How Blockchain technology coexists with banks?

  1. How was it working with some of the best minds at Andreessen Horowitz?

  2. Is it true that Andreessen could clock around 180 wpm on the keyboard?

Do you think ICOs present a real threat to the VC ecosystem long term? When will the first unicorn be funded through an ICO?

Hi, just asking, can I get a job?

Hi Preethi,

my question is that :

Let say, i created a bunch of smart contract and deployed them on any existing blockchain technology. what if i want to change one of the smart contract due to any flaw/security issue/any addition to it, as i know smart contracts are immutable. So changing them would be not possible, but still, is there a way to update the smart contract.
