Write Your Name to the Blockchain: The Simple Guide to Writing your First Smart Contract

Organised by Blockchain Infrastructure Group. Partnered with SGInnovate

This workshop is a hands-on walkthrough demo, where you will write your name to the blockchain (either the real one, or the testnet). We will be introducing you to the core concepts of blockchains, and the real practical knowledge required to successfully develop and deploy a contract to two blockchains.

Date : 11 July 2018, Wednesday
Time : 6.30pm to 10.30pm
Venue : 32 Carpenter Street, Singapore 059911

We will be writing the simplest smart contract, to store your name on the QTUM testnet blockchains (you are welcome to write to the real one if you're really rich). You can't learn all of the specifics of smart contracts in a day, but you will get a big picture of how the building blocks of critical tools like the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), Solidity, and blockchains like QTUM come together.

6:30pm - Registration

6:45pm - Overview lecture on key concepts in Blockchain, Intro and QTUM

7:05pm - Hands-on code-along for writing a smart contract

7:30pm - Deploying your smart contract to the QTUM blockchain

You will need to bring a laptop with Google Chrome and Metamask installed. You are also welcome to just watch and follow along, and understand the big picture of how all of this comes together.

We are a strictly developer-focused meetup, and would discourage the discussion of price or trading during the session.

  • Blockchain in Energy: A Dream or Reality?

    Blockchain offers solutions to number of pressing issues related to energy sector’s transformation with decentralisation and digitalisation. Potentially lower transaction costs, tracking of decentralised transactions and energy exchanges, combined with monetary value. Though, how close are we to actual implementation on the ground? This joint session between Enrupt, an open innovation company for the energy sector and SGInnovate will explore the current status of various blockchain applications and how they can benefit energy producers and consumers. Is it a dream or reality?



  • Pragmatic Issues in Solidity Development: Security and Exploits

    Solidity, the main programming language for Ethereum and other EVM-emulation chains like QTUM, is subject to many quirks. Building on Solidity can therefore be dangerous for the neophyte programmer without a knowledge of standardized libraries and safe patterns. In this talk, we'll go through several common exploits on Solidity.

  • Blockchain 101: Futureproof Your Business

    From its inception on 31 October 2008, Bitcoin aimed to become a peer-to-peer decentralized, and safe monetary system. Since then, much speculation and hype ensued. In parallel, businesses have recognized that there is great potential in decentralization as it is not limited to only improving and revolutionizing financial systems, but can also be used in all sorts of centralized, isolated and otherwise not interconnected industries and markets.
