A decentralized app or “ÐApp”, is a software application that runs on a distributed computing system such as the Ethereum blockchain. As opposed to traditional centralized applications, where the frontend talks to APIs and datastores running on centralized servers, a ÐApp talks to smart contracts on decentralized blockchains.
Web3 Singapore is a learning community for folks interested in ÐApp development. No experience necessary - bring your machine and get ready to #BUIDL.
At our first session, we’ll learn the basics of decentralized applications, blockchain fundamentals, and the Ethereum blockchain.
- What are ÐApps?
- Why Decentralization Matters
- Public-Key Cryptography
- Blockchain Fundamentals and Building Blocks
- Introduction to the Ethereum blockchain
- The Solidity programming language (Teaser)
In our next session, we’ll jump into a practical hands-on with writing smart contracts using Solidity programming language.
