Technical perspectives of an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) on the Ethereum platform

2017 has been the year during which Initial Coin Offerings (the process of crowdfunding via crypto-currencies) have skyrocketed. During this session, I will try to demystify what an ICO is, why there are an interesting use cases of the Blockchain technology, from an economic and technical perspective. After a bit of theory, we'll take a deep dive into the various technical building blocks involved, first with a quick overview of the development environment (Truffle, OpenZeppelin, Parity), then we'll go through the process of creating a simple token sale, with an ERC20 utility token and accompanying smart contracts and tests. Be prepared to enter a brave new world ... where 'learn something new everyday' takes on its full meaning.
