Learn how to develop distributed applications (dApps)) using Smart Contracts during this two day journey.

We tailor the programme to your technical experience level enabling participation from both business professionals who wish to experience what the technology is and IT professionals with development experience who wish to start developing dApps.  We use Solidity on the Erthereum platform.

Our unique learning journey has been followed by around 500 participants, both technical and non-technical and is very highly rated.
