Introduce yourself here!

Welcome @shubhamy2015 Thanks for introducing yourself.

VoV looks interesting. Can you tell us more about the blockchain component of the project? (e.g. what did you use from OpenZeppelin for the project? what is stored in the ERC721? I assume you are running on mainnet?)

What is up next for you? (assuming the blockchain component of VoV is done)

Hello everyone :wave: I am an Ethereum developer and am excited to build on and with Zeppelin.

I am working on an easy-to-use wallet called Athereum with @chris.whinfrey and @miguelmota. We are going to use ZeppelinOS for upgradability and will make an EVM package as well.

I hope to help contribute to all the work that Zeppelin does for the community.


Welcome to the community @shanefontaine.

Can you share more details on Authereum?

Awesome that you are going to use ZeppelinOS and make an EVM package too. Please let us know How good are our docs, and how would you improve them? or request a guide or tutorial. Especially in relation to your experiences developing with ZeppelinOS and creating EVM packages.

Welcome to the community @miguelmota

Awesome that you wrote a book, especially love the focus that it is all the things that you wish you had known when you started.

Would love your input on how we can help improve our guides and tutorials.

Hi everyone.

My name is Pierre. I work at Sorare as senior dev and based in Paris. We’re using openzeppelin ERC721 smart contract for our crypto goods. I’m here to learn more about solidity best practices.



Wecome @piedup to the community forum! :wave:

I have checked out sorare previously. I thought I already had a sorare card, but looks like I haven’t purchased one yet.

OpenZeppelin repository is a great place to learn about Solidity best practices.

The Guidelines and Code Style documents are great reads:

I would recommend (if you haven’t already) linting contracts and tests, OpenZeppelin style is good to follow:

100% code coverage for your tests is a great target.

Would appreciate if you have any suggestions for Guides and Tutorials requests that the community needs, that would be great.

Hello Pierre, welcome! Glad yo have you here :slight_smile:

How did you find out about the forum?

THanks for the resources, I guess I’ll start reading those !!!


Hello all,

My name is Shawn. I’m an entrepreneur interested in learning more about bootstraping smart contracts conforming to the ERC20 and 721 specs for the purposes of crowdfunding and auctions. I hail from NYC and I first discovered OpenZepplelin after learning about the importance of Ricardian smart legal contracts from Ian Grigg. I appreciate intellectual discourse as much as technical.


Hello everyone !!!

Myself Mukheem. I am from Pune,India. I have been working as an Automation tester from the past 5 years.

Being passionate about Blockchain and Ethereum I have come across your Guide - Ethereum in Depth

That’s a nice one. Heading to Part -2.

Hi @sgrauel welcome to the community.

Can you suggest a good explanation of Ricardian smart legal contracts?

It would be great if you could share what you are working on

A good place to start is having a look through the #general:guides-and-tutorials category. Also the OpenZeppelin documentation has a section on tokens.

Hi @Mukheem Welcome to the community.

What types of products and technologies do you test?

Enjoy reading Ethereum in Depth, Part 2

Some other areas to look at are:
#general:guides-and-tutorials category.




Thanks @abcoathup

I enjoyed reading both the parts. :blush:

Also, I work on different Web based applications using selenium and Geb as automation frameworks. Also, I enjoy working with webservices and APIs

Looking forward to develop a few dapps.

Hello! I’m Vera, from Argentina. I’m a research intern in Zeppelin, working on my master’s thesis. Right now I’m researching existing tools and technics related to automatic analysis of smart contracts. I’m here mostly to share what I’ve been learning and discuss with you guys :slight_smile:


Welcome to the community @VeraBE. :wave:

How far along are you with your Masters? Is it all by research? (I did a Masters by course work which didn’t have any research)

Looking forward to reading what you share with the community.


Thanks abcoathup :sunflower:

My degree is actually called “licenciatura”, is a six year course with a thesis at the end, so I should graduate this year if everything works as planned. I’m not sure if I understood the last question, we have classes kind of related to academic research and then this research work that can last between 4 months and 1.5 years



ok thx. I’m Stefan and very interested in all the Blockchain stuff. Since some months I’m going through the learning curve of learning the ehtereum blockchain and toolsset. So I got confronted with all the typical pains during this process. - And it is not finished yet!

So my personal experience is, that the tech is cool, - but getting really good reliable information about setting up things is sometimes timeconsuming and hard. So openZeppelin is a really top library.

Anyway, most of the difficults for me was setting up the projects and make them work, - before I can start using openZeppelin.

So I like to share some of my learnings.

Most of the time in my life I did a lot of product management stuff (tech, marketing and sales) but I also programming for more than 30 years.

So I hope I’ve placed this posting at the right place.

Welcome to the community @blexx

Agree that finding good information and setting up development environments for smart contract development can be time consuming and harder than it should be.

I :heart: this community as we can work together to improve this for everyone.
It has definitely got a lot better in the two years I have been working with smart contracts.

We would appreciate any feedback on any guides that we need to improve on or any guides that you think the community needs #general:guides-and-tutorials

We have also started compiling top three recommendations for a new developer in the space if you wanted to add to this:

Hello, I’m AK. I am an investor and startup analyst, and help connect people to new opportunities that help them reach their full potential. I was born in Maryland but grew up in Sunny Southern California – the OC.

For the last ten years, I’ve supported the growth of early to mid-stage, venture-capital backed startups and spent the last 3.5 years at Stripe. I’m here to learn more about Zeppelin and how the community improves the ecosystem. I learned about Zeppelin from a close friend who is a blockchain enthusiast and also an investor. I’m excited to observe and learn more.
