Get in touch if you have any questions regarding this workshop or MLH Localhost.
During this workshop, you’ll teach participants the basics of blockchain technology, what this means for the future of the internet, what makes Quorum different, and how to interact with your own decentralized application built on the Quorum network.
Quorum is an open source fork of the Ethereum blockchain based on the Go Ethereum implementation, developed by J.P. Morgan. Quorum is ideal for any application requiring high speed and high throughput processing of private transactions within a permissioned group of known participants. Quorum addresses specific challenges to blockchain technology adoption within the financial industry and beyond.
By interacting with the codebase of a fully-functional decentralized application, participants will learn the structure of a dApp and how to write functions in Solidity, the Contract-Oriented language. They will leave the workshop understanding how all of these pieces fit together.
Participants will be required to have a computer that can connect to the Internet and run the following software:
Participants should be fairly comfortable installing packages and software on their computers, navigating the command line, and reading code in the language of their choice.
When you host an MLH Localhost activity, we’ll send you everything you need to run it. Here’s what we’ll send you:
Participants will need to install Docker to run the Quorum network. Participants may install Docker during the workshop or in advance. It will be easier for you to help debug issues if you have been through this before.
Participants will need to install Node.js locally to run the applications they create. Participants may install Node.js during the workshop or in advance. It will be easier for you to help debug issues if you have been through this before.
There is so much to learn about Quorum! If you're ready for a deep-dive, check out the Quorum Wiki.
