Overview/Description

Employ the variety of tools available to develop smart contracts for your Blockchain solutions. In this course, participants discover how to use deployment scripts in Javascript, develop with the Remix integrated developer environment (IDE), and interact with the Ethereum Wallet. This course assumes some degree of application development experience in a high-level programing language. You will learn how to use Javascript and Mocha to define a process for deploying a smart contract to a private Ethereum network; how to use Ganache to provision a private Ethereum network; and how to deploy your smart contract to it and work with Geth to connect as a node to the Rinkeby test network and deploy your smart contract, among other skills covered. Upon finishing this course, you will be familiar with the different tools available to build, test, and deploy smart contracts. This will equip you with the skills required to build smart contracts which are robust, efficient, and easy to maintain, and to define streamlined processes for contract deployment and testing.

Lesson Objectives

Working with Ethereum: Tools for Smart Contract Development

  • Course Overview
  • use JavaScript and Mocha to define a process for deploying a smart contract to a private Ethereum network
  • work with Mocha to call a function on a deployed contract and test its return value
  • write a script to deploy a smart contract to a private Ethereum network
  • use Ganache to provision a private Ethereum network and deploy your smart contract to it
  • connect to an already deployed contract using the Ethereum JavaScript API and invoke its methods
  • work with Geth to connect as a node to the Rinkeby test network and deploy your smart contract there
  • use the cloud-based Remix IDE along with Metamask to develop and deploy a smart contract to the Rinkeby network
  • invoke a transaction on your deployed contract using the Remix interface and set transaction parameters in Metamask
  • interact with a contract deployed on the Rinkeby test network and track the mining of your transactions
  • use the Ethereum Wallet app to interact with a deployed smart contract by passing to it the contract address and ABI
  • recall the different ways to interact with Ethereum networks and smart contracts using Geth, JavaScript, and Ethereum Wallet
