This is the Ethereum compatible JavaScript API which implements the Generic JSON RPC spec. Wiki at https://github.com/ethereum/wiki/wiki/JavaScript-API

Broader Tech Content:

Challenges of building reliable oracles: https://www.infoq.com/presentations/blockchain-oracle-problems

To do:

  • Create table of contents
  • Organize resources
  • Add additional resources

Future ideas for expanding this resource:

  • List of blockchain startups (and specifically ones that are hiring)
  • Different software engineering positions that are in high demand in the space
  • Different use cases and value of blockchain tech (both on a personal and enterprise level)
You can’t perform that action at this time.
