Ethereum Developer Workshop for Beginners
Get started programming smart contracts
In this 2 hour workshop you will begin to learn how to code using the programming language Solidity. Solidity is the most popular programming language on the most popular distributed computing platform for developers called the Ethereum Blockchain. 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.

Blockchains, Smart Contracts & ICO’s
What Lawyers Need to Know
Over $1 billion dollars worth of cryptocurrency has been invested into entities in the first six months of 2017 using a novel fundraising method called an ICO or Initial Coin Offering. These crowd funding mechanisms use cryptocurrency as a way to collect value from investors and in return provide those investors with a token that is crucial within that businesses architecture.
ICO’s, however, are just one use case of blockchain technology. This 1-hour briefing will include an introduction to blockchain technology, cryptocurrencies and smart contracts. The speakers will then highlight the broad range of legal issues raised by various applications of this technology and the legal and regulatory responses to date.
This course has been approved for Minimum Continuing Legal Education credit by the State Bar of Texas Committee on MCLE in the amount of 1.0 credit hours, of which 0.5 credit hours will apply to legal ethics/professional responsibility credit.
