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 learn the basics of blockchain development through a fun, interactive project. We will build a slot machine application using ICON technology, ICX, and Smart Contracts known as SCORE and deploy it onto the ICON network.
Powered by ICON
ICON is a blockchain platform that enables various blockchains to interact with each other via smart contracts in order to build one of the largest decentralized platforms in the world! This workshop will enable students to create a project on the blockchain using ICON to send/receive transactions (ICX), create a SCORE, and deploy it to a testnet.
ICON Community Grant Program
The ICON Community Grant Program is a program run by the ICON Foundation to fund community projects benefiting the ICON community. Participants will receiver grants to continue developing their projects for the ICON community. Proposals for projects are open to: infrastructure, development, education, marketing, public relations, and community activities.
Smart Contracts (SCORE)
Participants will learn how to use smart contracts running on ICON’s network that resides at a specific address on the blockchain and executed on ICON nodes. These are the building blocks of decentralized applications.
Requirements / Prerequisites
- Python 3.6 + - A general-purpose programming language
- PyCharm - an integrated development environment (IDE) to edit Python code.
- Python iconSDK - a collection of libraries which allows you to interact with a local or remote ICON node using an HTTP connection.
