Summary: Heard about blockchain but not sure what it means for your business or your industry sector as a whole? In this two-day hands-on workshop we will first explore its capabilities and disruptive potential, followed by the opportunity to code and develop a prototype blockchain application.
Blockchain is in its infancy and commonly associated with disruption in the financial technology or fintech domain.
