What we'll do

The day covers a lot of topics at a shallow level. The idea is to give developers a general understanding of how to design, build, test and deploy smart contracts on the Ethereum platform. They can then go back over topics afterwards without being overwhelmed with what technology or tool they should use.

A $20 fee is being charged to cover catering. The Tyro Fintech Hub space is being made available and the trainers are volunteering their time for free to help build the Ethereum community. Please pay via Evenbrite

Developers will need their own laptop to follow what the trainers are doing. The following software needs to be installed before arriving:
node-gyp (only if using windows)
