Most people have heard of Bitcoin, and also know that blockchain is one of the underlying concepts behind this cryptocurrency. However, the ability to share information via a shared, trusted distributed network with embedded business logic also has many potential benefits for an enterprise deployment. Join this session to hear about blockchain, enterprise use cases, and associated concepts such as smart contracts. We will build a smart contract in Java or Go on the Hyperledger Fabric blockchain technology, and also discuss what we, as technologists, should be thinking about as we look to apply these concepts across various enterprise use cases.
