Learn how to design, develop, and deploy smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain. With this practical book, software developers with a high-level understanding of the blockchain will use the Solidity programming language to write decentralized applications (dApps) using the web3.js library.
Smart contracts have allowed technologists to create a new breed of software systems that have ushered in the next revolution in human organization. David Hoover and Kevin Solorio teach you the fundamentals of Solidity, as well as key topics such as unit testing, deployment, and preventing security vulnerabilities. You'll also learn how to leverage the built-in public/private key cryptography in the Ethereum protocol.
