There's a lot of talk about blockchain, but how does the technology behind it actually work?
For developers, getting some hands-on experience is the fastest way to get familiair with new technologies.
So let's build a blockchain, then! In this session, we're going to build one in plain old Java, and have it working in 40 minutes. We'll cover key concepts of a blockchain: transactions, blocks, mining, proof-of-work, and reaching consensus in the blockchain network.
After this session, you'll have a better understanding of core aspects of blockchain technology.
