By the definition, blockchain is a decentralized digital ledger used to record immutable transactions in a distributed way across many computers, by using consensus algorithms and smart contracts. Today, it seems that everyone is talking about the blockchain, but mostly because of cryptocurrencies and ICOs. However, there is much more than rise and fall of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and more than 1500 others. In the last few years, we are witnessing a whole new world of private and public blockchain business implementations for various domains and purposes, including financial, government, insurance, healthcare, IoT, and many other services, that we don't know that much about. On the other hand, there is a whole new set of development tools and techniques that we have to be aware of if we want to participate in that world. In this session, we are going to explain some of those, mostly related to Java and similar technologies. You can hear more about different consensus algorithms, smart contracts, dapps, and implementation tricks, but also how to start dealing with the most common libraries and frameworks like Web3J, HyperLedger Fabric, Solidity, BitcoinJ, and others.
