In this session, risk manager Alex Bertomeu-Gilles provides a deep dive into the risk frameworks of one of the largest DeFi players in the space and how the community can leverage and continue to iterate on this framework.

Alex Bertomeu-Gilles is risk manager at the Aave Companies. A Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries, she uses financial modelling and risk management to build risk standards for DeFi.

===== Session Details

This is SESSION 5 of a 5-part series on coding Solidity. The goal of this course is to iteratively develop and understand an ERC-20, using it as a motif and target to understand how to code Solidity using Remix.

It is ideal for beginners and will teach you how to write and deploy EVM smart contracts. The class will meet every other Tuesday (in order to give people time to work on what's learned in each session). Each session is 1 hour providing digestible and incrementable learning.

FOR THIS FINAL SESSION PLEASE CREATE A METAMASK WALLET. Follow the link below, as we will be using your wallet and the Ropsten Test Network to deploy small smart contracts through Remix. PLEASE REQUEST TEST ETHER BEFORE THE COURSE. CLICK BUY ON THE ROPSTEN TEST NETWORK AND THEN SELECT GET ETHER FROM THE TEST FAUCET.

About the Speaker:

Zeb Lelie
After years of being fascinated with politics, economics and personal freedom Zeb arrived at the blockchain space in 2014. Blockchain technology provides new forms of choice and subsequently the power of programmable value, something which will change our way of life. In 2015, he founded the 'Do-Your-Own-Research' (DYOR) Crypto Wiki, a comprehensive database focused on the crypto-ecosystem. In 2016 Zeb began working with Cyber Capital as an analyst and in 2017 he made a long consultancy trip all around Asia.
Zeb lost my heart to Vietnam, where he hosted the Blockchain Meetup in Hanoi. And for the Index Coop became the ambassador to the Vietnam-based Kyber Network. Aside from offline activities, he is an active participant in on-chain DeFi governance where he advises multiple projects and research groups. This has led him to be invited into the global expert network of the Blockchain Founders Fund (BFF). Currently his time is most focused on being the Grants Lead at the Balancer Grant DAO. Zeb is also still an active consultant with Cyber Capital, one of the best performing and oldest crypto funds in Europe.
