Blockchain Quick Start Guide
Learn quick and effective techniques to get up and running with building blockchain including Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric.
Understand the key concepts of decentralized applications and consensus algorithms
Learn key concepts of Ethereum and Solidity programming
Practical guide to get started with build efficient Blockchain applications with Ethereum and Hyperledger
Blockchain is a technology that powers the development of decentralized applications.This technology allows the construction of a network with no single control that enables participants to make contributions to and receive benefits from the network directly.
This book will give you a thorough overview of blockchain and explain how a blockchain works.You will begin by going through various blockchain consensus mechanisms and cryptographic hash functions. You will then learn the fundamentals of programming in Solidity – the defacto language for developing decentralize, applications in Ethereum. After that, you will set up an Ethereum development environment and develop, package, build, and test campaign-decentralized applications.The book also shows you how to set up Hyperledger composer tools, analyze business scenarios, design business models, and write a chain code. Finally, you will get a glimpse of how blockchain is actually used in different real-world domains.
By the end of this guide, you will be comfortable working with basic blockchain frameworks, and develop secure, decentralized applications in a hassle-free manner.
