Blockchain Developer Programme: DApps & Solidity
Presented by SGInnovate. Partnered With Kingsland and Ngee Ann Polytechnic
Together with Kingsland University – School of Blockchain, SGInnovate is proud to launch Singapore’s first certified blockchain developer programme. Designed to accommodate working professionals, the hybrid immersion blockchain programme will employ a blend of face-to-face intensive technical training and online supported instructions.
This collaboration enables the fusion of technical expertise from Kingsland Univerity - School of Blockchain with the deep tech ecosystem of SGInnovate. Comprising of two modular courses: “DApps and Solidity” and “Blockchain Networks”, eligible trainees may receive course and certification funding support through Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA)’s TechSkills Accelerator (TeSA) CITREP+ programme.
This DApps & Solidity course is one of two core courses we offer to aspiring blockchain engineers. The course will take you through a sequence of well-structured modules, systematically introducing new content while reinforcing previously addressed concepts; each module includes practical exercises and practical projects to foster an active learning environment.
You will gain experience in:
- Developing smart contracts using Ethereum and Solidity
- Writing Solidity code: contracts, functions, data, events, payments
- Designing and developing decentralized apps (DApps)
- Accessing the Ethereum network and invoking smart contracts
- Using Solidity framework and tools: Truffle and Ganache
- Using decentralized storage systems like IPFS
Hybrid Immersion has been developed to accommodate those already working in a professional environment. It is a blend of face-to-face intensive training and online supported instruction.
The first six days of a Hybrid Immersion mode course are held face-to-face and the following four weeks include online lessons, live instructor online feedback and a personal/group project. Students must attend all face-to-face classes, participate in all online learning modules and successfully complete their project in order to receive a certificate of completion.
Prereqs and preparations
This course is for experienced software developers looking to add blockchain programming, DApp building, and smart-contract development to their skill sets. Course candidates are encouraged to take an assessment exam to provide feedback on course readiness.
The DApps & Solidity course covers the following topics:
- Smart contracts, Ethereum VM and DApps
- Solidity basics
- Solidity advanced
- Smart Contracts
- Building DApps with Ethereum
- DApps - Concepts
- Practical Project: DApp architecture and UI
- Server-side Web3 API
- Blockchain and Smart Contract security
- Other blockchain platforms
- Practical Project: Smart Contract and DApp UI
Hybrid Immersion courses can be combined to constitute a complete program and a step toward the pathway to certification as a Kingsland Blockchain Developer.
Students who complete all modules within the DApps & Solidity course including successfully defending their project will receive an official Certificate of Completion from Kingsland University - School of Blockchain.
Students must combine DApps & Solidity with Blockchain Networks to constitute a complete program and pathway to certification as a Kingsland Blockchain Developer.
- $4,800SGD for Singaporeans and Permanent Residents
- $5,000USD for international students
More details to be released soon. Please indicate your interest so that we can contact you the moment workshop is open for registration.

Blockchain for Impact: Sustainability in a Threatened World
How Technology Can Be a Force for Good - As the threats of climate change increase, how can we use technology to sustain our world? In this session, we will be discussing how Forest Conservation should be our immediate response in combating the ever-growing consequences of climate change and how technology can be used as an enabler through the “reduce” platform and use cases.Topics:
TechTrade Asia published an article on the progress of blockchain in 2018, and how the technology will play out in the coming year. According to Steve, blockchain will play a bigger role beyond the financial industry. For instance, it can be used to address food safety by preserving the integrity of food supply, create a greener ecosystem through energy or electricity-sharing on the Blockchain, increased transparency in logistical supply chains, and stamping out counterfeit drugs in the healthcare system. He added that blockchain can help solve poverty issues on a large scale and create an economic impact on the underserved community in Southeast Asia. The lack of access and difficulties for many of the unbanked and underbanked population is creating barriers for these communities to come out of poverty, and blockchain helps to remove the need for a ‘middle man’ that requires a fee for a bank account opening or usage, reducing the cost of transactions. Finally, Steve gave the example of how AID:Tech, one of SGInnovate’s portfolio companies, is enabling aid, welfare, remittances, donations and healthcare to be digitised and delivered through blockchain technology in a transparent manner.
Jumpstart Magazine published an article on the deep tech trends to look out for in 2019, from an investment perspective. According to Hsien-Hui, while deep tech has become a hot topic in recent years, investors should remain careful about separating the wheat from the chaff.
- AI as a specialised problem-solver: 2019 will be the year for AI companies that are narrowly focused on specific processes to solve industry pain points to win big in the market, such as AIDA and Taiger. AI startup that identifies their target audience as everyone usually means that their revenue will likely be highly skewed on the service side, making them unable to scale and an unattractive investment to VCs.
- Blockchain assumes its next form: Again, solving a specific problem for a niche industry is critical in differentiating high potential blockchain companies from the rest. Keep an eye on blockchain applications that do not go up against the technological barrier of scalability, but solve challenging problems that involve a smaller number of stakeholders.
- The doctor will see you now: Products that assist and augment the role of medical professionals will see better traction in 2019. Healthtech is likely to remain highly localised due to data privacy laws, thus, concerns over scalability and speed of growth should be considered.
- We don’t need roads where we’re going, yet: At the platform level, AVs are not likely to be an area of focus in 2019. Instead, the intermediate stage occupied by teleoperations, namely remote-controlled vehicles, is expected to see increased growth because they are deployed in labour-intensive industries or hazardous areas
Artificial intelligence is already a part of our everyday lives, but for it to truly make a difference it needs to understand human emotions, says Live with AI founder Pierre Robinet.
