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.
