Programming the Ethereum Blockchain with Solidity

Presented by Mr. Dionysis Zindros, cryptography PhD student at UoA focusing on blockchains

In this 1.5-hour workshop, you will learn to program the Ethereum Blockchain and write your own smart contracts. We will together develop a couple of smart contracts, run them each on their local blockchain and apply unit testing to ensure correctness. This course is targeting computer science students. Previous knowledge required to attend is expertise in at least one programming language, with some knowledge of Javascript desired. Bring your own laptop.
