A curated list of resources for blockchain engineers
"The blockchain symbolizes a shift in power from the centers to the edges of the networks." - William Mougayar
A collection of resources that I've gathered over the past couple years while advancing in the blockchain world. Hope this can help others.
This list is by no means exhaustive and is centered on the end goal of building production quality smart contracts and DApps. My journey has been focused on Ethereum but I would love this list to expand and not just be limited to one Blockchain. All contributions welcome!

Create and curate a list of resources for aspiring and seasoned blockchain engineers.
Over the past two years, I found it useful to pick a subject from the list below, read it thoroughly, take notes, and implement on a blockchain running locally. I tend to prefer a top-down, hands on approach to learning. I found it extremely important to build and push my understanding further daily.
Everything below is a prioritized outline and you should work from the top to the bottom.
Blockchain technology is a multi-disciplinary field built atop cryptography, economics, and computer science. The background section includes some requisite fundamentals in these fields that will ensure you have solid footing before diving deeper into the blockchain specifics since many of the features that exist today are results of years and years of previous research.
