The London Java Community: LJC Virtual Event: Meeting Corda - a blockchain platform for the JVM

***This is a placeholder for the event being run on Eventbrite. Please sign up with your full name at

This talk will present Corda, a blockchain platform written in Kotlin and targeting the JVM.

We will describe briefly what are the problems that can be solved via a blockchain or a distributed ledger platform, such as Corda. This will be followed by an introduction to the key concepts and the architecture of Corda. Last but definitely not least, we will explore a sample use case in the field of supply chain through a demo of an application built on Corda.

Who should attend this event?

Anyone that wants to learn more about blockchain and distributed ledger technologies and how they can be used in practice from a business and technical perspective. No prior knowledge is necessary, but some familiarity with Kotlin (or Java) & Spring will help you make the most out of the demo in the end.

What will people learn?

Attendees will learn the high-level architecture of Corda, the key concepts and how to develop a distributed application on Corda (CorDapp).
