EatTheBlocks Newsletter #18 – New Screencast for Ethereum Dapps & Smart Contracts, HTLC Contract Standard…

  • Launch of EatTheBlocks Pro – I am very excited to announce the launch of my paid screencast! Members will enjoy a new exclusive video tutorial once a week. It will cover Ethereum Dapps & Smart contracts, like the youtube channel. Unlike the youtube channel though, the topics will be more advanced: test-driven-development (TDD) for smart contracts, security, continuous integration, full projects and more niceties! Members will also enjoy access to a private telegram channel where me and other members can help you if you are stuck somewhere. Normal price is 15 USD / month, but during the launch it will be 10 USD / a month. Can cancel at any time. 1st month refundable if not happy. Buyers of my Manning course or the ebook get 1 extra month for free.
  • How to become a Blockchain developer Step-by-step plan – I released my longest video ever last week (36 mins) where I give a 10 step plan to become a Blockchain dev. The video was trending on r/Blockchain, got tons of upvotes, and became my most popular video. Pretty happy about this 🙂
