Technologies like Ethereum enable an entire new class of applications to be developed: DApps. Those are fully decentralized applications that use Ethereum and other technologies to completely remove the need for a central trusted 3rd party.

In this workshop we will focus on the basics of contract development using Solidity, the official language for ethereum contracts, and contract deployment to a blockchain.

Topics include:

• Basic introduction to the EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine)

• Solidity syntax and semantics

• Using Ethereum Studio IDE

• Implementing contracts in solidity (main part)

• Deployment using web3.js (only if time)

Expected prior knowledge:

• Basic knowledge about Ethereum at the level of our Introduction Presentation (

• At least basic programming skills

Having a (free) account for the Ethereum Studio IDE ( is recommended. Please also make sure your laptop has working wifi. Alternatively you can use the solidity online compiler.
