The Ethereum blockchain allows it's users to deploy distributed applications (known as smart contracts) that can be used for a wide variety of tasks, such as creating digital marketplaces, payment systems and fully autonomous ride-sharing services. All of this can be achieved without a trusted third-party or the risk of censorship.
These amazing possibilities does however come at a price.
As with most immature technologies, the ecosystem is riddled with security issues and the economical incentive for malicious hackers is significant.
In this propaganda free techtalk, you'll learn how to setup your own Ethereum network for testing, the basics of smart contract development and common vulnerabilities affecting Ethereum applications.
