It's Hacktoberfest 2019! Let's celebrate open source over food, drinks, learning, and great company! Hack on parity and related technologies, solve issues or take on a bigger challenge pushing the boundaries of the technology that will run the next generation of the internet. Oh, and get exclusive swag on top of that!

Substrate is an open-source modular framework for building blockchains, and is the backbone of the upcoming Polkadot network. Join this workshop to learn to build a custom Blockchain during this live working session, and how you can build with Substrate during Hacktoberfest!
Ben Kampmann from Parity Technologies will walk you through the end-to-end process for setting up your working environment, going through the basics of runtime development, and finally building a game from the ground up.
By the end of this workshop, you will have all the tools and knowledge needed to build a custom blockchain using Substrate!
Prerequisites: Please install and setup substrate as described here: https://substrate.dev/docs/en/getting-started/installing-substrate
Substrate is written using a new programming language called Rust. If you are unfamiliar with Rust, that is okay! However, we recommend reviewing at least the first 3 chapters of the official Rust Book: https://doc.rust-lang.org/book/
Hacktoberfest — brought to you by DigitalOcean in partnership with DEV — is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like and others they've just discovered. No contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.
Can't make it to this event? Hacktoberfest is virtual and open to participants from around the globe. Sign up to participate today.
