Want to learn more about bringing Java and Blockchain together? Don't miss this month's London Java Community with Conor Svensson!
This talk will provide an overview of what blockchain/distributed ledger technology is, and how the Ethereum blockchain works. We'll discuss smart contracts, and demonstrate how you can deploy and interact with smart contracts on Ethereum, all from within the JVM, thanks to the open-source library web3j, which has just had its milestone 3.0 release!
We will also learn about web3j's usage of ReactiveX's Observable, and the great enhancements it was able to bring to web3j, both internally and externally for its users working with the blockchain.
Conor is the author of web3j, the Java library for working with the Ethereum blockchain, and the founder and CEO of blk.io, who provide an enterprise blockchain platform based on Ethereum.
