Sydney’s 2nd Ethereum One-Day Workshop

For only a $21 fee, developers can engage in an Ethereum workshop in Sydney on Sunday, August 28, 2016.

This workshop covers just a few basic grounds of Ethereum and doesn’t get deep into its roots. The idea is to give developers a general understanding of how to build, design and test and deploy smart contracts on the Ethereum platform.


Level 5, 155 Clarence St, Sydney

Listed schedule and necessary installations:

Developers will need their own laptop to follow what the trainers are doing. The following software needs to be installed before arriving:
