Smart Contract Development – Security and Best Practice
Smart contract development is not trivial and security issues are common. As smart contracts usually hold value, are publicly readable and cannot be modified after deployment, they are a very attractive target for cyber attacks and millions are lost every year to smart contract vulnerabilities.
In this workshop, you will learn common best practices for smart contract development, using Ethereum as the underlying platform. You will also become familiar with a number of known vulnerabilities and present tools and methodologies for auditing smart contracts.
