With all the innovation in the Web3 space, it's hard to navigate, but for traditional Web2 developers, you just need to know a few things to get started.
Most of us know what a blockchain is, but what makes the Ethereum blockchain a great place to build your project? What projects make a good Decentralized Application? There's Decentralized Finance (DeFi), Crypto Exchanges, and even games that integrate DeFi. Want to build NFT marketplaces? We need to know what tools we will need and manage onboarding users with crypto wallets.
This session will explore an Ethereum Blockchain Dapp built with ReactJS, Truffle Suite, and Infura (frameworks for Solidity Smart Contracts).
Smart contracts contain our logic for signing transactions, transferring assets, and anything else you want to do programmatically on the EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine). That's where a production application would eventually get deployed.
We will set up a local blockchain node, deploy our smart contracts on that node, and learn about testnets that can be thought of as a public staging environment that mimics the mainnet, where we would deploy our smart contracts before production.
