Smart Contracts on Ethereum (Workshop)

Christian Reitwiessner

Learn how to use the actually interesting parts of blockchains instead of just staring at price charts: Programming a decentralised, manipulation-resistant world-wide singleton computer open to everyone.

The current hype about blockchains and cryprocurrencies is mostly focused on trading and investment. We would like to take a look below the surface and highlight the many useful things you can do with a decentralised manipulation-resistant database that features stored procedures and can be used by anyone. We will write smart contracts, deploy and use them on the testnet. Knowing a programming language like C/C++/Java is helpful but not required. If time permits, we might also touch on the subject how to remove the resource-intensive mining procedure.
