About this Workshop

Introducing DFINITY and the Internet Computer, an amazing new blockchain powered development platform! In today’s workshop, you’ll learn how easy it is to build a multiplayer video game using the Internet Computer’s very own language, Motoko! We’ll even take it a step further and show you how you can deploy that game to the Internet Computer’s network and start playing with your friends in real time!

Requirements / Prerequisites

In order to deploy your project to the Internet Computer, you will need access to a GitHub account. You will need to have a working version of Node.js installed on your computer and have a downloaded version of the DFINITY SDK. Don’t have those installed yet?
