Blockchain Development Taster

Blockchain Basics

  • What is Blockchain?
    A look into the Blockchain technology and its most relevant and exciting use cases in the legal, financial and educational sectors. Students will finish this section with a solid intuitive understanding of what Blockchain is and when to use it over a more traditional database.
     

  • Blockchain Development Frameworks
    A brief look into Ethereum, Hyperledger Fabric, Corda and Hedera Hashgraph. The key differences between the frameworks will be discussed, and an understanding of under which circumstances each framework should be used will be developed.

     

  • Smart Contract Development in Solidity
    We'll guide you through the process of building your first smart contract! Our experienced workshop instructors have significant experience live-coding, ensuring that you understand the code you're writing during this interactive section of the workshop.

Smart Contract Development

Blockchain Development Fundamentals - Tier 1

  • A Quick Refresher: Blockchain Basics
    We will briefly cover the basic Blockchain theory usually covered in depth in the Blockchain Development Taster course. It is vitally important students understand the basics of what Blockchain to make the later coding parts of this workshop are as intuitive as possible.

     

  • Solidity: A Deep Dive
    Having a deep and comprehensive understanding how Solidity works is extremely important to develop logical and efficient smart contracts on a Blockchain network. In this section we'll dive into the technical details of Solidity, explaining why it's our language of choice for smart contract development.
     

  • Smart Contract Development
    Guided by our experienced workshop instructors students will be taught how to develop a complex smart contract, following a real-life use case. By the end of this section students will be confident developing smart contracts in Solidity.

Foundations of Decentralized Application Development

Blockchain Development Fundamentals - Tier 2

Learn how to build fully decentralized applications. In this workshop, we teach your team the common workflow of creating smart contracts which are then interacted with on a decentralised application. You will learn how to build out simple Ethereum smart contracts written in Solidity, deploy them onto the Ropstein Test Net, and then learn how to create a decentralized application which will interact with your deployed smart contracts.

Professional Decentralized Application Development

Blockchain Development Fundamentals - Tier 3

This workshop follows on nicely from the Decentralized Application Development Basics course. In this we extend upon the concepts already learnt. Your team will learn how to build complex smart contracts using Solidity and learn how to deploy these onto the Ethereum Network. Then, attendees will learn how to build a complex decentralized application which uses IPFS to include large decentralized file storage capability in the dApps.

Blockchain for Business

Non-Technical Blockchain Workshops

Learn how Blockchain could apply to your business. In this half-day workshop, attendees will develop a strong understanding of Blockchain, learning about its history, some technical details, the advantages and disadvantages of Blockchain, and the existing use cases of the technology. Following this, attendees will be split into teams and engage in a Dragons' Den competition to come up with the best application of Blockchain in your business domain.
