I have a lot of experience in programming but I'm a noob when it comes to ethereum programming. When I try to compile the code with truffle I have this error: ParserError: Expected event name or path on lines where I use events EthTransfered and EthRefunded.

  • quick guess: add an underscore as that's what the super function is called in crowdsale.sol : super._forwardFunds();
