Blockchain Smart Contracts for Non-Programmers

  • Rise New York 43 West 23rd Street New York, NY, 10010 United States (map)

Heard about smart contracts but don’t know what makes them “smart”? How do blockchains allow for smart contracts? What are some things they can do that regular software can’t, and what are some things smart contracts cannot do?

In this session we will answer all these questions, and then go into the details of one. We’ll drive into a smart contract line-by-line and explain what each term means and how they come together in a piece of code. If you’ve never programmed before but want to understand how programming works, this is the workshop for you. If you are a developer and have never seen blockchain code but want to learn, this is the right session to get started.   

By the end of this session, smart contracts will no longer be a mystery and you’ll be ready to embark on becoming a smart contract coder.
