Blockchain/distributed ledger technology has been the all the rage in the tech and financial press during the last 18 months. In this talk, we will be demystifying this technology and demonstrating how you can integrate JVM applications with the leading public blockchain technology, Ethereum.
This talk will provide an overview of what blockchain/distributed ledger technology is, and how the Ethereum blockchain works. We’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. We will also learn about web3j’s usage of ReactiveX’s Observable, and the great enhancements it was able to bring to web3j, both internally and externally for its users working with the blockchain.
