What we're about

Learn cutting-edge dApp and smart contract development on the Ethereum blockchain! No experience necessary - we're holding free introductory workshops on building dApps with Solidity smart contracts. Bring your machine and get ready to #BUIDL. Learn more at https://dapper.academy.

Dapper Academy is a meetup group for dApp developers and decentralized technologists. The goal of this meetup is to foster a community and an ecosystem for individuals working on dApp development, token models, protocols, cryptoeconomics, mechanism design, game theory, radical markets, cryptography, security, and related topics. It provides an opportunity to collaborate, deep-dive, and contribute to the ever-growing Token Engineering and dApp development knowledge base.

This community is for anyone looking to explore and expand their knowledge in new areas of decentralized technology. Speakers of all levels are welcome to share a talk on a technical topic of their interest! This means presenting a paper, study, theory, concept, framework, or protocol that they are working on and discussing their design, challenges, and lessons learned.

Ideas we especially would like to hear about include Curation Markets, Token Curated Registries, Bonding Curves, decentralized finance (DeFi), Non-Fungible Tokens, ERC proposals, meta transactions, smart contract security and related topics. Send in your talks here (https://github.com/dapper-academy/meetups/issues/1).

Come and join us! Together we can establish the building blocks of a new cooperative framework for humanity using decentralized technologies.

Note: Dapper Academy is a learning circle for an audience of developers and researchers. This meetup is NOT is a place for promoting ICOs, cryptocurrency investment tactics, or business pitches.

BUIDLing DApps #00: Decentralized Applications and Ethereum

We're thrilled to our very first Dapper Academy meetup in June! Limited spaces are available, so be sure to RSVP. A decentralized app or "DApp", is a software application that runs on a distributed computing system such as the Ethereum blockchain. As opposed to traditional centralized applications, where the frontend talks to APIs and datastores running on centralized servers, a dApp talks to smart contracts on decentralized blockchains. Dapper Academy is a learning community for folks interested in dApp development. No experience necessary - bring your machine and get ready to #BUIDL. ----- Meetup Agenda At our first session, we'll learn the basics of decentralized applications, blockchain fundamentals, and the Ethereum blockchain. * What are DApps? * Public-Key Cryptography * Blockchain Fundamentals: Keys, Transactions, Blocks * Introduction to the Ethereum blockchain * The Solidity programming language (Teaser) * Recap In our next session, we'll jump into a practical hands-on with writing smart contracts using Solidity programming language. ----- About the Speaker Yos is a software craftsman who spends most of his time learning about and building decentralized applications on the Ethereum blockchain. In his spare time, he organizes local meetups such as ReactJS and API Craft Singapore. ----- Schedule 7.00pm: Doors open - mingle over food and drinks 7.20pm: Start of session, opening address by hosts 7.30pm: Start of scheduled talks 9:00pm: Community announcements / End of event ----- Sponsors TBD - We're currently looking for a venue sponsor for the event. ----- Information for Attendees Please bring your ID to get through building security.

BUIDLing DApps #01: Smart Contracts and Solidity Basics

In our second session, we'll learn the basics of the Solidity smart contract language and deploy your very first contract on the Ethereum blockchain! A decentralized app or "DApp", is a software application that runs on a distributed computing system such as the Ethereum blockchain. As opposed to traditional centralized applications, where the frontend talks to APIs and datastores running on centralized servers, a dApp talks to smart contracts on decentralized blockchains. Dapper Academy is a learning community for folks interested in decentralized application (DApp) development. No experience necessary - bring your machine and get ready to #BUIDL. ----- Meetup Agenda * Recap of #00: DApps, Blockchains, Ethereum * History of Smart Contracts * The Solidity programming language * What is Solidity? * Language basics: Types, Variables, Mappings, Structs, Functions * Toolchains, Bytecode, ABI * Use Cases * Hands-On: Write your first smart contract! The session will involve: - A presentation introducing and explaining all of the relevant concepts and details - Live coding of an example contract where participants can follow along - Code exercises where participants develop contracts by themselves In the next session, we'll jump into more advanced features of the Solidity programming language and learn more about deployments and development tools. ----- About the Speaker Yos is a software craftsman who spends most of his time learning about and building decentralized applications on the Ethereum blockchain.
