EOS Blockchain Bootcamp


This 10-weeks course is designed for web/app developers who wish to understand how to create and/or integrate Ethereum based apps. The course gives a top down view of all the important aspects in creating such an app and a basic overview to how the Ethereum blockchain works.


Hands on experience in creating web apps
JavaScript a plus
1-years minimum as a developer
Students are required to bring their own laptops


  • Configure your Ethereum node – testRPC/parity
  • Create a working environment for deploying and interacting with smart contracts
  • Write your own tests for smart contracts
  • Read and write smart contracts written in Solidity
  • Explain how ERC20/223 tokens works, create your own tokens and offer them to the public with an ICO
  • Make your own token exchange with Ethereum using multiple different approaches
  • Deploy Multisig wallets
  • Create user interface that can work with Ethereum based applications


Accreditation is given to participants who pass with 70% score on all course examinations and successful completion of all of the coding assignments.

Course size: min 7, max 20

The Blockchain Academy reserves the right to cancel the Ethereum: Zero to dApp course at least 72 hours in advance via Email if we have not received seven or more confirmed applications. If the Ethereum: Zero to dApp is canceled by The Blockchain Academy then full refunds will be made. This means that the participant is aware that the event is not guaranteed to take place at the time of reservation.



Basic concepts and configuring a working environment:
The first lessons will cover some basic concepts in blockchains and the many tools it implements. We’ll cover some of the main differences between traditional and blockchain centered architecture and we’ll set our working environment and tools.

  • The origin of the blockchain and its basic working mechanism
  • Consensus and the blockchain. How to agree on things
  • Asymmetric (key) encryption
  • Transactions and scripts
  • How the Ethereum VM works. Storage, transactions, OP_CODES etc
  • Installing and configuring truffle framework
  • Creating a private blockchain using testRPC and parity
  • Working with RPC and HTTP requests
  • Using truffle to deploy smart contracts and run tests
  • Writing tests for our smart contracts
  • Using nodeJS as the back of our app

By the end of this module the students will be able to:

  • Explain the basic working mechanism of blockchain (specifically, the Ethereum blockchain and Virtual Machine).
  • Configure their own nodeJS, testrpc/parity nodes, and truffle projects.
  • Write simple tests for smart contracts


The main language used for creating smart contracts. In this session, we’ll cover some of it’s basic syntax and structure.

  • The smart contract as an object on the blockchain
  • Variables, types, arrays, mapping, memory and storage
  • Inheritance and classes. Interaction between contracts, calls and libraries
  • Functions, constructors, modifiers and control flow
  • In-line assembly
  • Security considerations

By the end of this module the students will be able to:

  • Write their own smart contracts using Solidity.
  • Compile and debug their smart contracts
  • Write useful test cases for their codes
  • Deploy their smart contracts to the Ethereum network
  • Interact with deployed smart contracts


Now that we know how to write, deploy, test and interact with smart contracts it’s time to see some real example in action. All topics in this section will be covered by learning and mimicking real running protocols.

  • ERC20 and ERC223 protocols
  • Token issuance mechanisms
  • Identity management systems (uport, civic etc.)
  • Token exchanges
  • Wallets and multisig

By the end of this module the students will be able to:

  • Create their own tokens.
  • Issue tokens to the public as an ICO
  • Create and interact with identity management system
  • Exchange tokens in a token exchange smart contract and in offline protocols
  • Deploy and use their own multisig wallet


We know how Ethereum works and how to write smart contracts for it. We’ve also created some sophisticated apps and made sense of contracts already running on the Ethereum blockchain. Now it’s time to create a user interface for our costumers/end users.

  • Using web3JS library
  • Connecting your app to an Ethereum node
  • Architectural considerations – how and when to use the blockchain
  • Building the proper framework for displaying and receiving information to/from the user

By the end of this module the students will be able to:

  • Connect any smart contract to a user interface
  • Demonstrate in a graphical way the working of their smart contracts
