Details
Zero Knowledge Proofs are among the most fascinating concepts in cryptography today, enabling global privacy-preserving currencies like ZCash. But how many of us can actually write a prover and verifier?
This 5-day workshop and hackathon, run alongside O (1) Labs and the Snarky Team, will be focused on helping you to write zero knowledge applications.
Leading experts will provide a thorough exploration of the underlying theory and guide you through hands-on workshops on their development. We’ll focus on the two prominent languages, Snarky and Zokrates, with instructors providing hands-on experience on how to write basic programs in the respective language. This will culminate in a 2-day hackathon, where you will split into teams to build zero knowledge applications.
The workshop is free to attend and it will run in Moorgate, London from the 17th — 21st June. Lunch and refreshments will also be provided.
