Developing Blockchain Applications
Developing Blockchain Applications is a hands-on programming course that deep dives into the largest, most widely used blockchain platform – Ethereum. Learn to use core Ethereum development tools including Solidity, web3.js and Embark. Build a simple TODO DApp, cover best-practice for testing smart contracts, interact with decentralised services and libraries, and design your DApp user experience.
After completing an RMIT Future Skills course, you will earn an RMIT certificate and credential which can be validated, recognised and shared on social media platforms.
- DApp development on Ethereum,
- Programming smart contracts with Solidity
- Testing with web3.js
- Building interactive DApp interfaces
- Managing access and permissions
- Data storage with IPFS,
- Managing and updating smart contracts in an immutable environment
- Testing best practice
- UX considerations for DApps
- Using external libraries
- Ethical considerations
- Security in smart contracts
"You’ll start by building a simple TODO list DApp before moving onto your project. We’ll cover best-practice for testing smart contracts, interacting with decentralised services and libraries (e.g. IPFS), designing your DApp user experience, optimising for efficient transactions and understand some of the ethical and security issues a DApp developer must consider.
In the end, you will tie it all together and build a real decentralised app under the guidance of industry experts.
