Ready to dive into smart contract development for the blockchain? With this practical guide, experienced engineers and beginners alike will quickly learn the entire process for building smart contracts for Ethereum--the open source blockchain-based distributed computing platform. You'llget up to speed with the fundamentals and quickly move into builder mode.
Kevin Solorio, Randall Kanna, and Dave Hoover show you how to create and test your own smart contract, create a frontend for users to interact with, and more. It's the perfect resource for people who want to break into the smart contract field but don't know where to start.
In four parts, this book helps you:
- Explore smart contract fundamentals, including the Ethereum protocol, Solidity programming language, and the Ethereum Virtual Machine
- Dive into smart contract development using Solidity and gain experience with Truffle framework tools for deploying and testing your contracts
- Use Web3 to connect your smart contracts to an applicationso users can easily interact with the blockchain
- Examine smart contract security along with free online resources for smart contract security auditing
About the Author
Kevin has been developing software for nearly 10 years developing applications on web and mobile platforms. In addition to writing software, he spent nearly 4 years teaching and writing curriculum for Dev Bootcamp and is eager to bring his education experience to helping developers learn the fundamentals of blockchain application development.Randall Kanna started coding at the age of 12 and selling websites online for online currency on neopets.com. Everything came full circle again when she started working in blockchain. Randall has worked as a Senior Software Engineer at companies such as Eventbrite and Pandora.A self-taught software engineer since 2000, Dave has been intrigued by how people learn to program for decades. Dave co-founded Dev Bootcamp in 2012 and was co-author of Apprenticeship Patterns in 2009. In 2015, Dave fell down the blockchain rabbit hole and soon after landed at ConsenSys where he focused on Solidity and reusability. Dave is currently the Chief Squirrel at Red Squirrel Technologies, a consultancy focused on smart contract audits, engineering, and coaching.
