Blockchain Development on Ethereum

About the Workshop
Please join Vitalik Buterin for a crash course in developing your first Blockchain application on Ethereum. Blockchain has emerged as one of the most exciting technologies in our time, and the potential and opportunities range for applications from healthcare to finance to logistics and identity. As an business / engineering student, understanding this core technology may be a significant benefit after you graduate.

Goal of Session
Engage students to get a crash course in Ethereum development. By the end of the session they will have created some simple smart contracts within the Ethereum framework on the Ethereum testnet.

Updated Equipment
Attendees should bring their laptop to the session. In advance, please download and install the "Geth - Go Ethereum" Framework.
