📌 Who can attend?

According to Hackernoon, Blockchain is one of the biggest technology industries where women are underrepresented (https://hackernoon.com/blockchain-empowering-women-around-the-world-7d52f8bf70f). For this reason, we ask that seats at this event be prioritized for women and non-binary persons (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-binary_gender).

⭐ About the Event

Decentralized Applications (DApps) are applications built on top of blockchain technology. This means that the underlying computations are run on a network of computers, which make decisions together. While most people associate blockchain with cryptocurrency, the technology can be used for much more, from supply-chain monitoring, to games, to helping refugees manage their identities (https://www.forbes.com/sites/rogerhuang/2019/01/27/how-blockchain-can-help-with-the-refugee-crisis/).

Learn how to build a DApp in Solidity, a programming language for the Ethereum Blockchain. Build key parts of a Japanese treasure hunt known as a “Stamp Rally” (https://www.tokyoweekender.com/2009/08/stamp-rallies/) in Remix (https://remix.ethereum.org/), a browser-based Solidity editor. Learn about Smart Contracts and how code gets deployed to the blockchain. Discover how to connect a frontend app to blockchain code using Web3.js.

📌 What to expect

• All coding can be completed via a web browser.
• No prior blockchain experience required.
• If you are totally new to coding, we may find you a partner so you can learn together.
• Please bring a laptop if you have one, with either the Chrome or Firefox web browser installed.
