Course Summary: This is a part-lecture/ part-bring-your-own laptop, hands-on course in Blockchain programming. Some programming experience is required.
After providing an introduction to Blockchain, we’ll review cyptography which is an underlying technology of Blockchain. Then we will dive right into Etherum, the largest Blockchain platform used today. Then we will work with crypto-zombies – an interactive code school that teaches you to write smart contracts in Solidity through building your own crypto-collectables game. After that we’ll introduce tools to use Ethereum.
Target Audience: Engineers and managers of engineers with some programming background who want to understand the mechanics of Blockchain. This is a class with both lecture and hands on exercises.
Goals/benefits of attending: You will understand the basics of blockchain and know the basic tools of programming blockchain.
1. Blockchain Primer
2. Cryptography – Public and Private Key cryptography 3. Ethereum Basics – programming in ethereum
