Blockchain Dev with Spaceman Dev: Writing Smart Contracts
February 28, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm CST
Leading this workshop, Dev Bharel, is a Blockchain solution architect and ambassador, and serves as the Chicago Regional Ambassador for the Blockchain Education Network. He is a fourth year undergraduate student exploring his passion for Computer Science at Illinois Tech in Chicago. A hacker at heart, Dev loves participating in (and organizing) hackathons. His inspiration comes from finding other students who love to write code with real world applications. Dev got into blockchain in high school, when assigned to do a research paper, he chose the up and coming cryptocurrency at that time, Bitcoin. The more he read, the more questions he had, and the more he was drawn in by elegance of blockchains. Dev’s current projects include working on building a better blockchain developer ecosystem in Chicago by hosting a series of blockchain developer workshops on university campuses.
This workshop will be an introduction to smart contract writing. We’ll go over the basics of a smart contract and write a self-aware vending machine that can restock itself.
