The "System Design and Hands-On Development" lecture features an interactive discussion on when blockchain is a good or bad fit, demonstrated on widely used products and services. It covers design decisions around the architecture of blockchain-based software, most-used tools, programming languages (including platform-specific ones), and high-level libraries. It also includes code walkthroughs/explanations of simple scripts. The two follow-up labs give a short introduction to system design and practical security (a bridge to the next lecture) and let students practice their skills on mock projects, under the guidance of the course lecturers.
