Workshops:

10:00AM Making your first dApp with Metamsak and Truffle

For many types of Dapps (Distributed Apps), Truffle does everything you could want: It compiles your blockchain contracts and injects them into your web app. With Metamask, all your users need to do is install their Chrome plugin, and they will have their own secure blockchain accounts right in their browsers.

12:00 PM Build your own blockchain with Hyperledger

Is the public blockchain not cutting it for you? No worries, you can make your own! This workshop will go into how to get started with creating your own Hyperledger Fabric channel using the Node.js fabric-client SDK. Once you've got a channel, you can invite your trusted peer nodes to join on in.

1:30 PM Inner Workings of the Blockchain.com Wallet

Tori is the product lead for Blockchain.com's mobile wallet. Learn about what makes a crypto wallet tick, and how to quickly architect your own wallet creation.
