This is a workshop about implementation where we go a bit deeper in Solidity. However, anyone who is not familiar with cryptocontracts at all are also welcome to join.

Cryptographic contracts have nothing to do with legal contracts, they are cryptographically verifiable scripts. We will be looking at how the contracts are designed and written, what they are good for and what exists to this date that can be used to run and interact with them. If you are unfamiliar with Solidity, you will notice it looks (and feels) like any other programming language. There are a number of quirks though, mainly because it's a fairly new language and because the execution environment is somewhat different from that of a normal program/script.
