In this Introduction to Blockchain and Corda training course, we introduce the fundamentals of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. We will discuss when to apply these approaches to existing or greenfield architectures.
Attendees will be able to see the power of the approach by building and working with a simple blockchain from scratch. With this context, we will move on to discuss the Bitcoin network and currency in detail and the design choices that it makes.
The second half of the course introduces the Corda distributed ledger and distributed apps. These are written either in Java or Kotlin, so we briefly introduce this up-and-coming language with a lab-driven approach.
We discuss the Corda ledger, shared facts and CorDapps before turning to the transaction lifecycle and flow. Finally, we look at Corda nodes and operation aspects of running a Corda network and private distributed ledger.
- You will be required to bring a laptop to attend this course. Your laptop will need to be preloaded with an IDE (ideally Java 8) and the ability to install new software.
