Freek is a blockchain developer who divides his time between working on interesting projects, teaching people about the wonders of blockchain and telling companies they actually do not need blockchain to solve their problem. He has worked on various open and closed source blockchain projects such as OasisDex (Maker Market), Etherisc and Siliqua.
He is also a big fan of Google’s Design sprint, a collaborative framework allowing you to go from problem to ideas to prototype in just 5 days.
Presentation: Getting started with Blockchain development on Ethereum.
Want to get started with blockchain programming but it looks like black magic to you? In this presentation we will take you through all the steps needed to become a blockchain developer. We will cover blockchain basics briefly, introduce the tools for blockchain development, and discuss how to write, test, deploy and interact with smart contracts for your decentralized applications.
Blockchain is no longer just a buzzword but an innovative technology that can transform industries. Ethereum is one of the main blockchain networks and its smart contracts are the building blocks for decentralised applications. The Truffle framework allows you to get from idea to app quickly, making your life as a developer easier.
