Blockchain? Bitcoin? What can we do with it anyway? Learn from experienced developer Mila Paul on April 4th at innovation hub, the Tampa Bay Wave.

PRESENTATION DESCRIPTION:

We have heard of Bitcoin and Blockchain. We hear that its a progressive technology but what are they really? What is the difference between Bitcoin and Blockchain? What can we as developers do with it?

This event will provide all you need to know to create a business blockchain use case. First, we will discuss what a blockchain is and how it has evolved to what it is today. Second, we will look at a special blockchain used to automate a business process using a language that's almost identical to Javascript! We can interactively discuss what that business process will be so we can understand the logic behind creating it on the blockchain. In blockchain dev-speak, we will be creating a smart contract in solidity!

Come join Mila and be your team's resident blockchain expert by creating an efficient and secure process that fixes current issues in your industry!
