Event Details

In this first ever blockchain summer school to be held worldwide, this course/summer school will focus on educating students in blockchain technology to develop solutions within three focal industries. The participants will learn how blockchain technology is disrupting existing business models and will gain insights in paradigmatic changes occurring from economic, organisational, and computer science viewpoints. As a result, the participants will be able to develop their own, new value creating information systems, which are designed as decentralized autonomous systems. As learning outcomes, the participants will receive computer science, information systems, and business knowledge background in order to analyse existing business processes and their potential to convert them into blockchain-based solutions. In doing so, they will be able to co-create new blockchain-based cryptographic economic systems.

Within the summer school, participants will learn how to set up a development environment and how to work with the emergent crowd-funded decentralized blockchain application platform of Ethereum. They will be able to design and implement their own smart contracts and will code their own dapps (decentralized apps). Once basic blockchain elements have been introduced, participants will work on their own blockchain development projects, supported by the participating industry partners. The outcomes will be functioning demonstrators as well as a written documentation and reports that illustrate the business process or transaction realized in a blockchain implementation and how, in so doing, a real world challenge is addressed.
