Get Started Programming Smart Contracts on the Ethereum Blockchain with this Hands-On Workshop.

Want to get into Ethereum coding but don't know where to start? Learn what a smart contract is, the language it's coded in--Solidity--and then write and deploy your first smart contract.

We then go further by giving a hands-on introduction to Monax. Monax is an open platform for developers to build, ship, and run blockchain-based applications for business. Jan Scheufen, head of product at Monax, will guide students in designing, assembling, and deploying a smart contract-based application.


  • Introduction to Ethereum and Smart Contracts
  • Interactive demo of a smart contract use-case [Etherisc Insurace dapp]
  • Download and Install Monax
  • Get an overview of the Monax platform
  • Write and Deploy a smart contract using Monax


Prerequisites: Some previous programming experience will be assumed. Some familiarity of Javascript is ideal--as Solidity is syntactically similar. Those who want to just jump in anyway, are welcome.

Requirements: Laptop. Get a headstart by downloading Monax

This 2.5hr workshop will be led jointly by Blockmatics and Monax.

All tickets are transferable and all sales are final. Transfer requests must be made 48 hours prior to the event.
