Overview/Description

Develop Blockchain applications for Ethereum by using a variety of tools with unique features. In this course, you will explore Ethereum development tools including solc-js and the Remix IDE (integrated developer environment) for developing smart contracts written in the Solidity language. Learn the functions of full Ethereum nodes and the different tools in the Truffle Suite by getting familiar with the features of the Truffle framework, Ganache, and Drizzle tools that speed up smart contract development. Discover the purpose of the MetaMask client for Ethereum and the techniques it uses to connect to an Ethereum network and the functions of smart contract bytecode, opcodes, and ABI (application binary interface) in interacting with a contract. Also, get acquainted with the role of the Ethereum virtual machine for running smart contract code. By the end of this course, you will have a conceptual understanding of smart contract development and the tools available to help you build robust, efficient contracts that are easy to maintain.
