Programming the Ethereum Blockchain

Bitcoin gets a lot of attention these days, but it’s the Ethereum Blockchain that has led to the most exciting advances in the cryptocurrency space. With its Smart Contracts, the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) allows for a new class of distributed applications to be developed – not just those that are currency based. This talk will introduce the Ethereum Blockchain, and its fundamental concepts, as well as walk through creating Smart Contracts with Solidity and a basic Distributed Application (DApp) using web3.js and Truffle. No previous crypto experience is assumed.
