Developing on EOS Demystified

Learn to set up a testnet, write smart contracts and deploy decentralized applications to the EOS Mainnet

EOS Rise
What it's about

Over the last decade the first and second iteration of blockchain technology has brought with it some truly amazing innovations and with these new advancements some significant challenges. We invite you to come learn how some of these problems are being solved with us at EOS Rise.

EOS Rise is a two day workshop that provides the foundations any developer needs to start building decentralized applications on the EOS Mainnet. The program is led by Phil Mesnier (OCI) and Eugene Luzgin (EOS Tribe) and features some of the best insights, processes, cost and technologies related to developing on EOS currently available.

What we will cover

Go beyond just building and deploying a dApp, get a complete understanding of the entire EOS application stack.

  • Architectural overview of EOS Blockchain
  • Discuss components of nodeos
  • Review of different modules and tools in EOS (cleos)
