This session will introduce Blockchain and use the Hyperledger Fabric and Composer projects to motivate and demonstrate integration with your existing Enterprise Java systems
There's no doubt that Blockchain is a rapidly growing and evolving technology. If you work on Enterprise systems then there's reasonable chance there's a use case where Blockchain could help. This session will help you understand Blockchain and how your Java skills apply. The session will provide an introduction to Blockchain along with use cases. With the aid of relevant demos and the Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Fabric & Composer projects, you will learn how to get started with Blockchain technologies, develop and deploy Blockchain applications, and integrate with them from your favourite Java environment.
