Technical Seminar on Building Blocks: Introduction to Blockchain
Presented by SGInnovate
Partnered with Kingsland and Ngee Ann Polytechnic
Build the foundations for an exciting and lucrative career in blockchain and distributed ledger technology. Together with Kingsland University – School of Blockchain and Ngee Ann Polytechnic, SGInnovate is pleased to introduce a 1 Day Technical Seminar on Building Blocks: Introduction to Blockchain.
Get an overview of blockchain networks, wallets, tokens and Smart Contracts. Through practical exercises, glimpse the potential of this revolutionary technology as you work in small teams to create a distributed application (DApp).
Note: This seminar is a preview for our actual Blockchain Networks and DApps & Solidity certified courses happening in end Nov 2018 and mid Jan 2019 respectively.
What you will learn:
1) Blockchain Overview: Concepts, Blockchain Networks, Wallets, Smart Contracts, Tokens
In this module, we'll take a deep dive into the conceptual understanding of how blockchains and smart contracts work, as well as how they work together. In addition, we'll go over the essential components used when working with these technologies, such as wallets, and tokens to keep track of and exchange value.
2) Exercise: Play with Ethereum and Wallets on the Ropsten Testnet
Ever been too afraid to buy ether? Perhaps even once you've gotten ether, you've been too terrified to send that ether to another address? Don't worry! We'll work together with ether on a test network so that you can build your confidence without risking any of your hard-earned cash!
3) Ethereum, Smart Contracts and Solidity Overview
We'll learn what the Ethereum network has to offer in terms of decentralised applications, which are powered by smart contracts. In order to understand how smart contracts are built for the Ethereum network, we'll begin to leverage the Solidity programming language to design our own contracts.
4) Exercise: Deploy and Play with Simple ERC20 Token Contract
Once we've understood how to use the Solidity programming contract to design smart contracts, we're going to create a simple smart contract to make our own token. In addition, we will deploy our smart contract so that anyone on the internet can interact with it!
5) Exercise: Build a DApp with Ethereum - Certificate Registry
Let's kick things up a notch by building a fully-fledged DApp, or a decentralised application. This will be a bit more complicated than our previous token contract, but you'll really get a feel for how DApps work as well as how they differ in design from conventional apps.
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
