Dapp Coding Sampler Workshop

So What is a DApp?

A decentralised application (DApp) or a Decentralised Autonomous Organisation (DAO) is a company or service that isn't controlled by any single individual, board or other central entity.

See some examples of DApps here 

DApps are the outcome of Blockchain. When you agree that Blockchain's potential on the modern digital economy is huge, the potential will be realised through millions of DApps. 

Imagine how the Smart Phone changed our lives, with the App Store encourage inventors to come up with a myriad of Apps from Gaming & Entertainment to Productivity Enhancing to Google Maps, Uber etc. Some ultra successful compnaies of the modern economy started and remain as Apps - Instagram, Uber etc. 

So let's welcome DApps! If you want to leverage blockchain, you have got to imagine and create a DApp.

You have gulped down reams of reports, digested hours of talks by Blockchain experts and think you get "Satoshi's plan".

But, you are not sure how to create a decentralised application!

You have had enough of theory, and now you want deep practical knowledge.

Come, lets get-together with other aspiring DApp developers and get building DApps..
