Workshop by Burak Arikan, Graph Commons & Shawn Tabrizi, Parity Technologies

Substrate is an open-source modular framework for building blockchains, and is the backbone of the upcoming Polkadot network. Learn how to build a custom Crypto Collectables DAppchain during this live working session with Parity Technologies. We will walk you through the end-to-end process for setting up your working environment, going through the basics of the runtime development, and finally building a game from the ground up.
