The London Java Community: Blockchain for Java Developers

Blockchain for Java developers

What is blockchain and why do we care? You might have heard about hash chains, blockchains, Merkle tree, UTXO, Crypto accumulator, but what do they actually mean? Why are those concepts so powerful that they could fuel such a revolution? Now all of these concepts are great but where and how would you apply them to a project?

In this session, we will take you through the basic concepts behind blockchain, explore the type of use cases where blockchain can make a difference and introduce you to a real-life example of a Java application leveraging Hyperledger Fabric.

This talk is aimed at developers and architects who are keen to learn more about Blockchain.
