Smart Contract Development: Security and Best Practice

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Smart contract development is not trivial and security issues are common. As smart contracts usually hold value, are publicly readable and cannot be modified after deployment, they are a very attractive target for cyber attacks and millions are lost every year to smart contract vulnerabilities.

What will students learn?
In this workshop, you will learn common best practices for smart contract development, using Ethereum as the underlying platform. You will also become familiar with a number of known vulnerabilities and present tools and methodologies for auditing smart contracts.

This course is appropriate for current and aspiring blockchain developers who want to better understand the security risks and mitigation strategies for smart contracts.

Prerequisite: basic understanding of smart contracts, Ethereum, and some programming knowledge. Code examples are designed to be trivial to understand for those used to imperative programming languages.
