Blockchain Quick Start Guide

More Information
  • Understand how blockchain hashing works
  • Write and test a smart contract using Solidity
  • Develop and test a decentralized application
  • Build and test your application using Hyperledger Fabric
  • Implement business network using Hyperledger Composer
  • Test and interact with business network applications

Blockchain is a technology that powers the development of decentralized applications.This technology allows the construction of a network with no single control that enables participants to make contributions to and receive benefits from the network directly.

This book will give you a thorough overview of blockchain and explain how a blockchain works.You will begin by going through various blockchain consensus mechanisms and cryptographic hash functions. You will then learn the fundamentals of programming in Solidity – the defacto language for developing decentralize, applications in Ethereum. After that, you will set up an Ethereum development environment and develop, package, build, and test campaign-decentralized applications.The book also shows you how to set up Hyperledger composer tools, analyze business scenarios, design business models, and write a chain code. Finally, you will get a glimpse of how blockchain is actually used in different real-world domains.

By the end of this guide, you will be comfortable working with basic blockchain frameworks, and develop secure, decentralized applications in a hassle-free manner.

  • Understand the key concepts of decentralized applications and consensus algorithms
  • Learn key concepts of Ethereum and Solidity programming
  • Practical guide to get started with build efficient Blockchain applications with Ethereum and Hyperledger
