The course gives a broad introduction to Blockchain principles and programming and guides the participants through a first hands-onBlockchain and decentralized application programming experience in the Ethereum Blockchain environment. The objective of this course is to give participants practical knowledge of blockchain main concepts, including programming of the  smart contract, Web3 methods, and developing decentralized applications (Dapp). In this course, the concept “learning by doing” is applied. At the end of the course, the participant will have acquired a foundational understanding of Blockchain programming.
