About the Event
Beneath blockchain technology lies important cryptography primitives. Let’s build decentralized applications with distributed networks such as Ethereum and IPFS. Using these networks we can create uncensorable applications that provide true ownership of assets, identity and virtual goods. In this two day workshop we’ll learn about these systems and build a project fully utilizing both.
This course will consist of two days of hands-on activities including coding exercises in a virtual coding classroom, learning activities and coding challenges.
The first day will focus primarily on the cryptographic primitives and data structures that support the IPFS network. We’ll learn about the IPFS network while building Merkle Trees and Directed Acyclic Graphs.
The second day we will expand on these concepts. We will build Smart Contracts on Ethereum and combine this with our strong fundamental understanding of decentralized file storage to store metadata of Ethereum Non-Fungible Tokens on IPFS/IPNS.
About our Speaker: Dan Nolan
Dan Nolan graduated from Marist College in 2012 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and has since been working professionally as a software engineer. In the last six years, Dan has been building coding tutorials focused primarily on hands-on learning. He greatly enjoys the process of helping others learn programming concepts and has held technical workshops at numerous meetups, conferences and hackathons around the world.
He co-founded ChainShot in 2018 after developing a prototype which won an Ethereum Hackathon earlier that year. Dan’s other interests include running and triathlons. He has completed an Ironman as well as over 10 marathons/ultra-marathons.
