Digital assets such as cryptocurrencies and smart contracts are a central component of decentralized applications (DApps), in that they are deployed on the blockchain. However, to interact with these on-chain components, transactions need to be created on the blockchain. For a user or off-chain software to create a transaction on the blockchain, a node needs to relay the transaction to the underlying peer-to-peer (P2P) network.
Web3.js is a collection of libraries that allows programmers to interact with these on-chain components, by being able to facilitate a connection to Ethereum nodes, using HTTP or IPC connections.
Web3.js can be used to connect to the Ethereum network via any Ethereum node that allows access via HTTP. This may be a local node, a node hosted by the DApp provider, or public gateways which operate free Ethereum access points.
One common way of integrating a web browser application with Ethereum is to use the Metamask browser extension in combination with Web3.js. Metamask is an in-browser Ethereum wallet that injects a Web3 provider object into the browser. A Web3 provider is a data-structure providing a link to publicly accessible Ethereum nodes. Using Metamask allows users to manage private keys and sign transactions within their web browser. Using Metamask in combination with Web3.js, in a web interface, provides a convenient way to interact with the Ethereum network.

What Will I Get ?
- Integration of Blockchain dapps with WEB3 js
- Full stack dapplication development - How to get through full stack dapp via web3 js
- web3 versus conventional methods
- Main functionality of web3 and Ganache - How to use the functionality of web3 and installing Ganache.
- Simple practical use of Web3 - Simple codes to get you started with web3 js
- Getting started with Truffle Project - Basic walkthrough of what is inside of truffle box.
- Truffle react box deployment - Deploying and migrating of smart contracts.
- How Ganache works - Setup ganache for our truffle project.
- Getting started with App js file - Starting template made which can be used for all the different contracts.
- Get & set methods used - Create web3 js to use the functions of our smart contracts.
- Let’s send ethers - Will send ethers to smart contracts and difference
- Setup the App js for first function - We need to set up the app js for calling function and sending ethers
- App js for second type and window function. - We need to make the app js to send directly the ethers to some account or to the Smart contracts and withdraw money from the smart contract.
- Testing of direct ether send and sending to contract and withdrawing it.
