Understanding the Ethereum Blockchain Protocol
Ethereum's Vitalik Buterin presents on the intricacies of the Ethereum Blockchain Protocol.
Ethereum in 25 Minutes
Ethereum Foundation Chief Scientist, Vitalik Buterin, describes Ethereum.
Solidity for Dummies
We will explore the basics of the Solidity contract language using examples.
Hudson Jameson, Piper Merriam
Ethereum for Python Developers
Everything you need to know to get started with Ethereum with Python.
Ethereum in 25 Minutes, Version MMXVII
So what are all of the different moving parts of the Ethereum blockchain? What are uncles, how do contracts call other contracts, who runs them? What is the role of proof of work and proof of stake, and what exactly is gas? What will EIP86 do for you? Vitalik Buterin provides a 25-minute technical overview of the ethereum blockchain, start to finish, and explain many of these concepts in detail.
Flexibility in Solidity
This talk presents latest updates and upcoming features of the Solidity language. Improvements in the code generator will greatly improve maintainability in the future. Furthermore, the next iteration of formal verification tools which will soon be a built-in component that helps you write safer smart contracts.
Dr. Christian Reitwiessner
Welcome & Team Introduction

Ming Chan, Vitalik Buterin, Dr. Christian Reitwiessner, Peter Szilagyi, Fabian Vogelsteller, Viktor Tron
Contributing to Ethereum and Open-Source
The Ethereum community is an open source community. We rely on implementations of an open protocol, open tools built to interface with these implementations, and ultimately open source dApps and contracts that live on top. Without a healthy ecosystem of open source developers, Ethereum is nothing. That said, contributing to open source can sometimes feel intimidating, and it's not always clear how to get started. Fortunately, it is actually easy in the Ethereum community! Everything is growing and changing so much. There is so much to do and to build, and there are a ton of great ways to get started. This talk will help demystify contributing to Ethereum and open-source in general.
Ethereum 2.0 randomness
Justin Drake talks about the randomness behind Ethereum 2.0 using a Verifiable Delay Function.
Cryptoeconomics In 30 Minutes
Vitalik gives a quick overview behind Cryptoeconomics.
Eth 2.0; tldr
High level overview of the work that has gone into Ethereum 2.0 since last devcon, the major milestones achieved, the landscape of research, and where we're going in the next 12 months. This serves as an overview talk for the track to get devcon attendees acquainted with the space in general and ground them for the range of more technical talks throughout the conference.
Growing The Way We Support
What we're up to, what's different from last year.
