Identity On The Blockchain

The problem of identity has attracted a whole flock of developers in the blockchain and distributed ledger space who see these technologies as a way to scoop up all the scraps of an individual’s online identity, consolidate them and put them under the individual’s control.  These include Sovrin, Civic, ShoCard and uPort among others.  This talk discusses some of the challenges with identity on the internet and the potential benefits that blockchain technology can offer.  It also outlines the concepts of creating identities on a blockchain and attaching trusted endorsements or seals to those identities that can be used to provide evidence that some due diligence or verification event has been carried out by a trusted organization without storing “Personal Data” or “Personally Identifiable Information (PII)” on a shared distributed ledger.

Blockchain Workshop - Build Your Own DApp - a Decentralized Application (or 'DApp')

Build Your Own DApp - a Decentralized Application (or 'DApp') is a piece of software consisting of a user interface (UI) and a decentralized backend; typically making use of a blockchain and smart contracts. This workshop will take delegates through the process of building, deploying and interacting with a simple Ethereum smart contract.  Delegates will get an understanding of the architecture of distributed apps and core concepts such as using “gas” to execute contracts.  There will be some prerequisites to the workshop so that the time can be spent diving straight into building and running contracts instead of installing software.

Prerequisites :-

A laptop (with battery life to last for an hour) with the following software installed:

•git

•node.js >= 7.7

•(optional) Mist >= 0.9.1 (https://github.com/ethereum/mist/releases)
