Build Your Own DApp - a Decentralized Application (or 'DApp') is a piece of software consisting of a user interface (UI) and a decentralized backend; typically making use of a blockchain and smart contracts. This workshop will take delegates through the process of building, deploying and interacting with a simple Ethereum smart contract.  Delegates will get an understanding of the architecture of distributed apps and core concepts such as using “gas” to execute contracts.  There will be some prerequisites to the workshop so that the time can be spent diving straight into building and running contracts instead of installing software.

Prerequisites :-

A laptop (with battery life to last for an hour) with the following software installed:


•node.js >= 7.7

•(optional) Mist >= 0.9.1 (https://github.com/ethereum/mist/releases)
