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

 

Course Overview

3 hour class learning to write Smart Contracts in Solidity

Programming for this 3-hour class will be on a web-based IDE named Remix, during which you will learn how to code using Solidity, the most popular programming language on Ethereum, the most popular distributed computing platform for developers. Ethereum is unique in that it allows for full programs to reside and run on its blockchain. These programs are often called Smart Contracts and are often a part of Dapps, or distributed applications.

After learning the basics of Solidity, you’ll learn what Smart Contracts are and how to write and deploy your first Smart Contract.

 

Agenda

  • Introduction to Ethereum and Smart Contracts
  • Install and setup Metamask
  • Overview of the Remix IDE
  • Introduction to Solidity syntax, keywords and expressions
  • Solidity features: modifiers, fallback functions, events
  • Writing a lottery smart contract
  • Deploying and interacting with smart contract
  • A look at Truffle and Ganache developer tools
