Event is hosted online

Event Description

Welcome to MLH Localhost

Localhost is a great way to build your tech skills and hang out with the hacker community. If you'd like to attend the workshop all you need to do is register on this page and check the page again an hour before the event begins. You'll find the link to the Zoom as well as a bunch of resources for the workshop!

In this workshop, participants will build a Taco store using common technologies such as HTML, TypeScript, and CSS. However, the application uses multiple plugins to integrate with Ark’s Blockchain. The Plugins that are used make it possible to perform and record transactions via the app on the Ark Network.

Powered by Ark

We've partnered with Ark to bring you this blockchain workshop. Ark is an open-source blockchain ecosystem available for developers to build their applications with. Ark provided access to technologies such as Blockchain, Desktop, and Mobile wallets.

Ark Wallet

The Ark currency is managed and maintained via the Ark Wallet. Participants in this workshop will create a developer account and fill it with some fake currency. This will let them make transactions from your wallet within the application.

Requirements / Prerequisites

While no background knowledge in Blockchain technology is required, participants with familiarity in HTML/CSS, Javascript and TypeScript will be beneficial for participation in this workshop. Students should also have the following installed on their machines:

  • Ark Wallet - The ARK Desktop Wallet is natively built for all major operating systems such as Windows, macOS or Linux.
  • Ark Deployer - ARK Deployer is a free and easy-to-use blockchain creation tool that enables you to build, customize and deploy your own blockchain that’s completely tailored to your project and business requirements.
