Zero-Knowledge Proofs Workshop

Zero Knowledge Proofs are among the most fascinating concepts in cryptography today, enabling global privacy-preserving currencies like ZCash. But how many of us can actually write a prover and verifier?

This 5-day workshop and hackathon, run alongside O(1) Labs and the Snarky Team, will be focused on helping you to write zero knowledge applications.

Leading experts will provide a thorough exploration of the underlying theory and guide you through hands-on workshops on their development. We'll focus on the two prominent languages, Snarky and Zokrates, with instructors providing hands-on experience on how to write basic programs in the respective language. This will culminate in a 2-day hackathon, where you will split into teams to build zero knowledge applications.

The workshop is free to attend and it will run in Moorgate, London from the 17th - 21st June. Lunch and refreshments will also be provided.

Agenda:
Monday Morning: Overview of Zero Knowledge Proofs (Presentation)
Monday Afternoon - Tuesday Afternoon: Break into Snarky and Zokrate groups for hands-on workshops
Wednesday Morning: Deep-dive into Zero Knowledge Proofs (Presentation)
Wednesday Afternoon - Thursday Afternoon: Hackathon to build zero knowledge applications
Friday Morning: Presentations and debrief

Instructors:
- Izaak Meckler, O(1) Labs (Snarky)
- Jacob Eberhardt, TU Berlin (Zokrates)
- Matthew Ryan O(1) Labs
More to be added soon

Prerequisites for Attendance
- You will need a genuine interest in building Zero Knowledge Proofs
- You will need a strong programming background - OCaml is not easy to learn in a day!
- Be prepared to attend the whole week uninterrupted

We are also seeking potential teaching assistants willing to help out with the hands-on workshop experience. If this sounds like you, or anyone you know, please get in touch!

We look forward to seeing you there!
