FinTech Intel

Join us this winter at New York City's historic Carnegie Hall for a day of fintech discussion, insight and networking.

It's trite, but true - the future is now. The technology to fundamentally change financial institution business models and industry structures is here today. How and when change comes is a topic of ongoing interest. Our friends at The Financial Revolutionist believe we're in the midst the most important financial revolution in nearly 400 years. We wonder if it's just the appearance of disruptive change as the industry proceeds through the fits and starts of good old technological change.

We don't have all the answers, but we do have is the ability to gather the kind of collective wisdom that will help you see the future more clearly. We'll convene thought leaders from the FIG and fintech communities to digest the ever changing impact of technological innovation on financial institutions as we head into 2018. We'll create the atmosphere you've come to expect from S&P Global events - a collegial gathering of industry leaders, with an emphasis on thoughtful, meaningful conversation.

FinTech School's Ethereum - Solidity Programming Workshop

The Ethereum blockchain has caught fire. Both public ventures and private consortiums large and small are building new Smart Contract innovations on Ethereum. Ether has rapidly risen as a crypto currency standard and is beginning to rival Bitcoin in reach and market cap. 

Smart Contracts can be written in a few languages today but Solidity, an official language of Ethereum, is one of the most commonly used languages worldwide to write Smart Contracts.

Anything from Initial Coin Offerings (ICO’s) to Large Volume Transaction Systems (LVTS’s) can be built, and are being built, with Solidity.

Training is extremely scarce as there are few educational resources available on Solidity and there is almost no in-person training available.

FinTech School is organizing a two-day workshop where you can learn Solidity. It will begin with the underlying concepts,and will build from there to hands-on coding exercises.

Upon completion of this workshop participants will  be ready to develop their first end to end Dapp (Distributed Application), be better prepared to apply for Blockchain Developer and Architect jobs and receive a Certificate of Completion via blockchain.
