Details

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.
