What is included in this course

Course Description

According to Ethereum.org website, “Ethereum is a global, open-source platform for decentralized applications. On Ethereum, you can write code that controls digital value, runs exactly as programmed, and is accessible anywhere in the world.” In this course, you learn how to develop decentralized blokchain applications as well as Smart Contracts (which are programs which govern the behavior of accounts within the Ethereum state) using Ethereum. In doing so, you will use Solidity programming language. Solididy is a Javascript like language, but also resemble C language such as strong typing. We also cover Web3.js which acts as Ethereum JS API. In short, Web3.js is made of a collection of libraries for connecting and interacting with local and remote Ethereum nodes via HTTP, WebSocket or IPC connection.
In this intense 30 hour course, you will also learn how to use Truffle (a popular JS framework) to compile Smart Contracts and automate contract testing. Also, you learn how to build and manage a Wallet Service. Lastly, this course is accompanied by many hands-on labs.
Prior knowledge of blockchain technology and cryptography that are covered in our Blockchain Solution Architect course are required prior to taking this course. Good knowledge of JavaScript and OOP are the other prerequisites of this course.
