The Introduction to Smart Contracts workshop aims to paint a picture of what it's like to develop on the Ethereum Blockchain. In an effort to cater to all experience levels, the workshop will open with a module of contextual information and tools for those new to Ethereum and the general blockchain ecosystem. Students will learn to set up their local developer environment, design a basic smart contract, and write tests; diving head first into Solidity, the Ethereum blockchain’s most popular smart contract language. The ideal student for this offering will be a beginner blockchain developer with no working knowledge of Solidity but will have experience using the command line and preferably Javascript as well.
