Event Details

Writing Smart Contracts wth Python and Populus
By: Calvin Hendryx-Parker, Six Feet Up
Like Python, but want to write Smart Contacts for the Ethereum Blockchain? Getting started with Populus is the tool for you. Populus is a development framework for the Ethereum blockchain. Armed with the Solidiy complier and the Geth client, we will write our first smart contract including writing unit tests in pytest. Using the populus tools, we can deploy and run on our local blockchain to kick the tires. We will cover some of the sharp edges of smart contract development and how populus helps make life easier for Python developers in this brave new world.

Blockchain Basic Chacteristics, DDICAAT
By: Tommy Cooksey, Dragonchain Foundation
Beginner, 45 mins
In this talk, I'll walk through Blockchain Characteristics and what they mean. We'll cover decentralized, distributed, immutable data ledger that is storing Cryptographic Data that can be Anonymous or Autonomous. I will explain the concept of Cryptography, Hashes, Symmetric and Asymmetric Encryption as well as public and private Blockchains.

Building a Company on the Blockchain
By Gwendolyn Faraday, Fusion Alliance
Beginner, 45 mins
Have you seen all the new blockchain companies popping up and been wondering if it is all just hype or something more? This talk will cover the ins and outs of building a company on the blockchain using Ethereum, EOS, IPFS, and related technologies. We will start off with a 10-thousand-foot overview of how decentralized companies work and then dive into some specifics with smart contracts, data storage and retrieval, and more. We will end by reviewing some additional resources so you can dive in deeper at your leisure.

Linking the Chain: How I Used my Python development Experience to Break into the Blockchain Industry and Architect a Better Data Solution
By: Brian Schuster, Hivergent
Beginner, 30 mins
While working as a python developer and data solution architect in early 2016, I became fascinated with the potential of blockchain technology and made an effort to enter the industry. After leaving my career last September, I used my experience and insight to cultivate new opportunities and application solutions in the blockchain industry. Here’s how I spent six months launching Hivergent, and what it taught me about creating new opportunities and building your skillset. In this speech, I will cover how: I laid the groundwork for cultivating new opportunities I used my previous python skills to experiment with new projects I constructively volunteered my development skills to build strong relationships and better ideas Hivergent inevitably formed from this process of exploration and experimentation Others can use this process to create their own opportunity in new industries

Using TDD to Create a Blockchain in Python
By: Matt Brown, Pattern98
Intermediate, 45 mins
Bitcoin and cryptocurrency is all the rage. Many industries are under attack from technology companies using a distributed ledger (fintech, healthcare, IOT, ...). Lots of money is being made (and likely lost) in this new currency and most people don't even understand what is happening. We will work to de-mystify the math and computing behind the currency and then use our new found knowledge to build a simple implementation in python using TDD principles.

Blockchain - Trustworthy in a Trustless world
By: Sunil Kumar Eda, YASH Technologies
Beginner, 30 mins
Learn about evolution of Money, Bitcoin and how it works. We'll discuss how Blockchain plays a crucial role by establishing trust in a trust less environment. We'll also dive into Blockchain use cases beyond currency and Blockchain in enterprise set up.
