A crash course on understanding and deploying your first smart contract in a Blockchain.
About This Video
- Understand the basics of a hash
- Learn how this simple concept enables the powerful blockchain architecture
- Learn how to install and configure Hyperledger Fabric using the easiest method available
- Learn how to install and run Composer, a high-level, easy to use interface to Fabric
- Learn how to set up a REST API to use your blockchain from outside Fabric
- Learn how to use a REST API testing application and then PHP to access data from our blockchain
Do you want to deploy a Blockchain but are overwhelmed by the sea of information out there that is half-baked and seems to want you to do too much at the same time?
If so, this course is for you. We will start by explaining exactly what a Blockchain is from a technical perspective instead of a high-level business overview. We start from absolute zero, assume no background, and give only those details that are necessary. Then, we move on to the highly popular and industry-backed blockchain framework: Hyperledger Fabric and its high-level library, Composer.
We explain how to set everything up and then move on to create our first Blockchain and then a smart contract.
We will also cover how this Blockchain can be used from an existing application using a REST API.
This will enable you to start using Blockchains in your own applications that can benefit from a blockchain or distributed ledger.
