This past year, we saw an uptick of developers adopting and starting to create smart contract and distributed ledger applications for enterprise use. Now that blockchain is established as a valid technology to be used across enterprise applications, the next stage of maturation for the tech is professionalization—that is, how the industry can start to professionalize blockchain.
Join Brian Behlendorf to explore standards, certifications, and training options for developers, blockchain as a service solutions, and how to avoid vendor lock-in. He’ll also discuss the current state of play with blockchain, looking at the challenges and opportunities of implementing the technology, and examine a number of production use cases across various industries including healthcare, finance, supply chain, and more.
