Blockchain/distributed ledger technology continues to follow an unstoppable growth trajectory, further pushed by the crypto and ICO mania of 2017. In this talk, I’ll be bringing things back down to earth, demystifying this technology in the process, and demonstrating how you can integrate JVM applications with the leading public blockchain technology, Ethereum.
I’ll provide an overview of what blockchain/distributed ledger technology is and how the Ethereum blockchain works. I’ll also discuss smart contracts and demonstrate how you can deploy and interact with smart contracts on Ethereum, all from within the JVM thanks to the open-source library web3j. You’ll also learn about web3j’s modular structure, usage of RxJava, and the seamless integration with other parts of the ecosystem it provides such as the Ethereum Name Service and Truffle.
