Pramod Chandersekhar, Founder at Theta-Chain, will guest lecture for Byte Academy students & select community members (both "techies" & "non-techies" should enjoy the presentation).

In addition to an overview of blockchain & smart contracts, the talk will focus on how we already have the skills to create & use Smart-Contracts on a blockchain. By the end of the evening we will have deployed a simple OTC Smart-Contract & traded with others in the meetup over a blockchain. There will be a more technical emphasis the latter part of the event.*

Approximate agenda/discussion topics include:

1) Blockchains are not strange beasts, they are just databases with a few very useful features.

2) Blockchains & SQL - you already have the skills to write Smart Contracts

3) Deploy a Smart-Contract based OTC instrument on a blockchain & trade with others in the meetup.

**networking break followed by more technical components**

4) Deep dive into the code.

5) Q&A, open discussion

*Audience - the first part of the training is suitable for people without a technical background. The second part of the training is of a more technical nature where enough source code will be demonstrated to understand the assembly of a small application.

About The Speaker: Pramod Chandersekhar is the Founder of Theta-Chain, a company which aims to make a blockchain look like a database.

His aim is to convert blockchain from looking like a strange beast to looking like a regular database so they can fit into the enterprise eco-system.
