The EOS blockchain is a fast, secure and UX and developer friendly blockchain for the deployment of decentralized applications. After only a year live, it is supporting more on-chain activity than all the other top 10 blockchains combined. A huge range of new types of apps can be built that could not before and this workshop will teach you how.
Work on Blockchain is a global hiring platform for technical professionals aimed at the blockchain, DLT and cryptocurrencies space. We now have 40+ hiring companies and over 300+ vetted candidates looking for work, and the number of active candidates are increasing daily, most with strong commercial blockchain experience.
EOSIO blockchain software has been used to launch the EOS and TELOS blockchain (and others), In this full-day workshop, you will learn how EOSIO software blockchains work, and deploy your first smart contract to the testnet.
You must be a developer to join, but no previous knowledge of C++ or EOSIO software is needed.

Part 2 - writing smart contracts
As a group, we will work through several exercises to write our first smart contract. This will involve writing, building and deploying smart contracts locally and on the testnet.
Be a developer or technical professionalsProvide your Linkedin/Github to show proof of at least 6 months coding experienceBefore the workshop you need to read through the C++ for EOSIO software refresherBefore the workshop you need to install software on your computer
What makes this workshop unique?
Big part of the workshop is actively driven by questions from participants and so each workshop edition looks slightly different. This is a unique characteristic of a workshop where most of the participants come with specific problems to solve in their minds, looking for explanations to the most difficult topics that they encountered while self-studying EOSIO blockchain software.
Who can benefit from this workshop?
This is a highly technical workshop to allow developers to start using EOSIO blockchain software and writing and deploying smart contracts. It is for new and old developers, with or without C++ or EOSIO experience.
