Event description

Description

We are honoured to have Melonport sponsoring a two day hands-on Blockchain Developer Workshop. Applicants must have a strong desire to work with Blockchain Technology. We are looking for future Blockchain Developers.

Special guest appearance from Reto Trinkler, Chairman & CTO of Melonport AG. Plus a bonus session by Melonport on the subject of Risk Management.

Our workshop consists of topics that all future Blockchain Developers must know and we incorporate plenty of hands-on development sessions. Our goal is to help regular Application Developers become Blockchain Developers.

Day 1
Intro to Blockchain, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Smart Contracts
Hands-on development on Ethereum Solidity and Smart Contracts

Day 2
Smart Contracts Security and Ethereum Internals - Cryptography, Consensus, EVM, Privacy
Intro to Formal Verification
What to know as a Blockchain Developer
Hands-on development on Ethereum Solidity and Smart Contracts
Building a Melon Module: Risk Management

Recommended development experience
Minimum of 6 months development experience is recommended

Our two instructors are currently working commercially in the Blockchain space building financial solutions.

Matthew Di Ferrante, Lead Engineer at Clearmatics
Matthew is a Software Engineer with a passion for Information Security, Cryptography, and Distributed Networks. He has worked in many different areas, from hardware, embedded and kernel programming, to data mining, analytics, and network / systems programming. He first started learning programming at 12 years old, and is completely self taught, both on the practical side of programming, and on the theoretical side of computer science, mathematics, and cryptography. Matthew was first exposed to Bitcoin in late 2010 due to his interest in information security, as Bitcoin was first mainly used on darknets/Silk Road, and got fully involved in the Blockchain space around the time Ethereum started to exist - beginning his foray while living with Vitalik Buterin and long time friend Vlad Zamfir (Creator of Ethereum's Casper Protocol) in London for a few months.

Matthew currently works as a Technical Lead at Clearmatics, developing Blockchain Technology for financial use cases. In his free time, Matthew works on personal hardware projects, gives Information Security and Blockchain related talks at various events, and organise one of the largest monthly Information Security events in the North-West. Matthew’s design for a Secure Oracles Reputation System on Ethereum recently won first place for Smart Contract Security at the Thomson Reuters HackETHon.

Matthew will be introducing developers to the way the Blockchain works technically, and what its potential applications could be. He will cover the workings and history of the Bitcoin Blockchain, as well as Ethereum and its concept of smart contracts that allow Turing complete code to execute on a virtual machine on the Blockchain.

Matthew will also talk about Smart Contracts Security and Ethereum Internals. He will discuss the most important areas to know as a Blockchain Developer. Matthew will hold a Q&A session after each topic.

Laurence Kirk - Blockchain Developer and Founder at Extropy.io
After a successful career writing low latency financial applications in the City of London, Laurence was captivated by the potential of Blockchain Technology, and in particular smart contracts. Two years ago, Laurence moved to Oxford and set up Extropy.io, a consultancy working with start-ups in the UK and overseas, developing applications on the Ethereum platform. He brings with him a wealth of real world experience that he loves to share with those new to this area.

Laurence hold a Physics degree from Durham University, and currently taking his MSc in Software Engineering at Oxford University. In addition to giving talks, mentoring at hackathons, and running groups about Blockchain Technology, Laurence also organise Artificial Intelligence and Data Science groups in Oxford.

During the workshop, Laurence will be teaching Solidity (an object-oriented programming language for writing smart contracts) from the simplest to advance smart contract up to interacting with a web application. The focus is very much the practical techniques that are needed when developing on Ethereum. The sessions will be very hands on, encouraging students to practice, explore and raise any questions regarding the Ethereum platform.

There will be plenty of Q&A throughout the whole two day workshop.

Date: Tuesday 30th & Wednesday 3st of May, 2017
Time: 08:30 to 17:00
Workshop Location: Lakeside Business Centre, Gotthardstrasse 26, 6300, Zug, Switzerland
