About this event

Master the fundamentals of smart contract development with Chainlink.

Get your laptops ready - Chainlink Bootcamp at Imperial College London is back, with a new curriculum! This bootcamp is designed to bring people together to learn how to build the next generation of smart contracts. In this intensive program, you'll dive deep into the world of blockchain, Solidity, and how Chainlink technology connects real-world data with Web3.

You’ll learn how to create, deploy, and execute smart contracts; how DeFi and NFT projects are built; what’s new in the Web3 ecosystem.

Expect highly interactive sessions. You'll be actively building and deploying smart contracts in various developer environments. You'll be coding and experimenting right alongside our experts and your fellow participants.

The bootcamp spans three days, with sessions on October 11th, 18th, and 25th. Each session builds upon what you've learned in the previous one. To get the most out of this bootcamp, we encourage you to join us for all three days.

No worries! It’s helpful to have some software engineering experience, but it’s not a requirement. This is a great place to learn all things blockchain and smart contracts.

What is Chainlink?

Chainlink is the industry standard for building, accessing, and selling oracle services needed to power hybrid smart contracts on any blockchain. Chainlink oracle networks provide smart contracts with a way to reliably connect to any external API and leverage secure off-chain computations for enabling feature-rich applications. Chainlink currently secures tens of billions of dollars across DeFi, insurance, gaming, and other major industries, and offers global enterprises and leading data providers a universal gateway to all blockchains.
