Web3 is a collection of libraries that allow developers to interact with a decentralized application (DApp) on the Ethereum blockchain. It enables developers to write and deploy smart contracts, create wallets, and send transactions to the Ethereum network. Web3 provides an API for interacting with the Ethereum blockchain, allowing developers to access data stored on the blockchain and build applications on top of it. Web3 also provides tools for developers to create their own decentralized applications (DApps).

A Frontend Developer’s Guide to Web3
There is a lot of hype and interest around diving into the Web3 space, and it can be hard to manage the information overload and the emphasis on learning new languages to work on smart contracts. Many developers in the frontend space ask, “How much of this new information do I need to transition into web3?” The truth is as a React developer, the skills I know are essential in web3. Let’s add some context around how to leverage those existing skills to succeed in this new space.
In this talk, we’re going to explore how to build the correct context and the technologies to understand to help you dive into web3 as a front-end developer. We’ll go over popular packages like Ethers, which can be used in React applications to interact with wallets and existing smart contracts. We will also explore how you can leverage your Javascript skills to build full-stack dApps using managed services like Moralis and Thirdweb.
Let’s demystify some of the concepts in web3 and leverage our existing skills to start building.

Build Blockchain dApps using JavaScript
Have we found nirvana for Blockchain developers? This session will focus on building blockchain dApps (distributed Apps) with one set of source code and deploy to multiple blockchains! The session will cover getting started with Reach and being able to deploy the same solution to multiple blockchains including Algorand, Ethereum, and Conflux. New to Reach? We will cover how to set up your development environment as well as walk through a simple app frontend and backend. Finally, we will look one the huge benefits of Reach in the built-in verification process. Reach provides automatic verifications to ensure that your program does not lose, lock away, or overspend funds and guarantees that your applications are free from this entire category of errors.

Building Dapps with React
Decentralized apps (dApps) are continuing to gain momentum in the industry. These developers are also now some of the highest paid in the entire trade. Building decentralized apps is a paradigm shift that requires a different way of thinking than apps built with traditional centralized infrastructure, tooling, and services – taking into consideration things like game theory, decentralized serverless infrastructure, and cryptoeconomics. As a React developer, I initially had a hard time understanding this entirely new (to me) ecosystem, how everything fit together, and the mental model needed to understand and be a productive full stack developer in this space (and why I would consider it in the first place). In this talk, I'll give a comprehensive overview of the space, how you can get started building these types of applications, and the entire tech stack broken apart then put back together to show how everything works.
