Joel's talk: Corda is a distributed ledger platform built from the ground up to meet the needs of real world businesses - for confidentiality, for throughput, and for interoperability. This meetup - R3's first on the West Coast - will look at how these needs forced us to to re-evaluate traditional DLT design decisions, and how the resulting platform allows developers to create Corda applications (CorDapps) solving problems that are difficult or impossible to solve with traditional DLT systems.
Joel Dudley ( https://www.linkedin.com/in/joel-dudley-613020a3/ ) is part of Corda's Developer Relations team. Since joining R3 ( https://www.r3.com/ ) in November 2016, he has been working with both members and the open-source community to increase understanding and adoption of the Corda platform.
