Into the Ethereum Blockchain

The blockchain borrows from concepts of distributed systems, networking, cyber security and databases. Its features are already changing the way various sectors ranging from financial institutions to e-governance systems handle their digital processes. This talk starts with an introduction to the blockchain and then moves on to cover the basic building blocks of a popular blockchain platform, Ethereum, and its subsequent real-life use cases, followed by two exercises:

  1. Setting up a private Ethereum network.
  2. Deploying a simple smart contract written in Solidity and interacting with the deployed contract using the Web3 APIs.
