First Look Into Blockchain: How to Develop, Test, and Deploy Blockchain Applications

Sign in to queue


Blockchain is an emerging way for businesses, industries, and public organizations to almost instantaneously make and verify transactions — streamlining business processes, saving money, and reducing the potential for fraud.

At its core, a blockchain is a data structure that’s used to create a digital transaction ledger that, instead of resting with a single provider, is shared among a distributed network of computers.

Join Lex Thomas and Razi Rais as they break down some blockchain concepts and then show us how to develop a simple hello world style blockchain solution and deploy it using Azure Blockchain as a Service (BaaS).

    Good talk. I feel like I understand blockchain more

    When you use geth attach ipc, I have a problem where it says 

    Unable to attach to remote geth: dial unix /home/super/.ethereum/geth.ipc: connect: no such file or directory

    Is there anyway to fix this?
