  • The Coin Room @ The Escalator

Note: if not done already, please add yourself to our skype channel for London Developers by adding 'stephan.tual' and specifying 'London Workshop' in your request, thank you!


Do you like the bleeding edge? Not afraid of compiling things on Linux or OSX?

Then please RSVP to attend this developer-specific event, focused on learning how to program smart contracts in Serpent (, as well as Dapps in HTML and Javascript.

This event will be provided free of charge. Attendance is limited to 17. Unfortunately until we find a sponsor we won't be able to provide refreshments and food, but a cafe is available in the same building with vegetarian options if required.

We expect it to last a whole day, with 2/3 dedicated to learn everything about Ethereum, smart contracts and their decentralized GUIs, followed by a mini hackathon until max 7pm.


Level of skills required not because writing dapps is hard, but because Ethereum is currently rapidly iterating over its software, so things will break. Please try and insure you have the client installed on your platform before arriving especially if you run Linux or windows.

Installing on OSX: 

Installing on Linux: 

Installing on Windows (not recommended, use a VM instead) 

Ideal background would be 2+ years of web development, and anyone who can program in Python, C++ or Java will feel at home.

We reserve the right to refuse entry.


Once again, the venue and date is secured thanks to the amazing people at the The Escalator ( Their twitter handle is @LondonEscalator, check them out.

Once you are at the address (you can't miss it, it's a huge building!), enter the Cafe Foxcroft and Ginger (to the left of the big dog mural) and directly make your way upstairs. There will be Ethereum signs, but not necessarily staff to welcome you as it's a Sunday, so tap on the door if needed and ask security to let you wait in the reception area. 

If you are late, make your way directly to the "Coin" room (against please ask security to show you the way).

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
