I had a lot of trouble finding some of the information I needed so I’ve collected some of it below so that I can hopefully save you some time or maybe just help you learn something new!

Let’s say you want to query all the event logs for a smart contract in a certain block range. I’ll be using CryptoKitties as an example for this article. If you don’t have an Ethereum node of your own you can get access to one from Infura for free. …
