Course Overview

"Blockchain" is the media buzzword, but it’s what developers and businesses can do with smart contracts that are changing the way that companies are doing business. Through smart contracts programming, logic can be applied to blockchains to facilitate business transactions. And, because of the way these apps work, they are enabling all participants on a blockchain to not only have a stake in the transactions, but are also providing secure storage, transparency, and verifiability to the transactions.

This course is designed to help developers obtain a deep knowledge of Solidity, the language of choice for writing smart contracts, and learn about the application development process that supports debugging, testing, and deployment of smart contracts.
