Who teaches this course?

Dave Appleton has been messing around with things since sometime before the dawn of time. Mentored by people with more technical expertise than interpersonal skills and business sense, Dave started programming in 1968 in FORTRAN, building audio systems about the same time and messing with digital logic in 1976. In the intervening time he has built world beating test systems, co-designed award winning products, run his own instrumentation company for over fifteen years, learned and actually used more than two dozen programming languages at a professional level, and taught courses from hobby to degree level on subjects as diverse as IOT, e-commerce and Image Processing. For the last three years he has been working on crypto currencies and financial technology.

What will you learn?
  • basic blockchain concepts
  • the introduction of smart contracts in ethereum
  • developing and testing a simple smart contract in the remix environment (browser based tests)
  • ways to interface to your smart contracts
  • designing and developing a more serious distributed application
  • using Geth and AbiGen (an ethereum node written in go and the wrapper generator)
  • parity – a blockchain node written in rust with Web UI
  • using the simulated back end for testing (together with my ether_go library)
  • blockchain safety (avoiding scams etc)

The Go Conference in India

Go is an open source project developed by a team at Google and many contributors from the open source community.

Go makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software.

This conference is brought to you by the Go Language Community in India together with the Emerging Technology Trust (ETT). ETT is a non-profit organization, established to organize and conduct technology conferences in India. It’s current portfolio includes DeccanRuby Conf, DevOpsDays India, GopherCon India and RubyConf India.
We love going to conferences that don’t make you choose between two great presentations. So we created GopherConIndia as a single-track event that you don’t want to miss and where everyone gets the opportunity to see the same talks. We think you’ll enjoy the speakers we’re lining up so much, you won’t want to miss anyone of them. Friday and Saturday will offer full days of conference sessions.
