Interested in learning about blockchain development? Local devs and the Hacking Club at the University of Delaware got together to create BlockHack, Delaware’s first blockchain hackathon, launching May 5.

Leading up to the two-day hackathon, BlockHack is offering free workshops at UD’s Evans Hall, all of which are livestreamed and can later be viewed on YouTube. The first workshop, “Blockchain High Level Overview: Why Blockchain Matters” is available to view now — when you get a free 40 minutes, it’s worth a watch:

Other workshops leading up to the event include “Smart Contracts,” “Tokens & Forking” and “Web3 & UI.”

“BlockHack will be the first blockchain focused hackathon in Delaware,” said co-organizer Noah Mogil. “Our goal is to bring together developers and blockchain enthusiast to increase blockchain development and engagement across the state.”

Organizers are aiming for 50+ coders to participate in the hackathon, which is open to everyone, from people just learning blockchain to veteran Bitcoin miners — and there’s still space left.

BlockHack is free for UD students, $10 for non-students. The event includes a sponsor fair featuring companies like IncNow, Saturday workshops including the JPMC Quorum Workshop and all meals (including midnight snack).

Tickets will not be sold at the door. Hit the orange link below.
