Blockchain on IBM Z

COURSE OUTLINE:

Description

Blockchain is an emerging technology that can radically improve banking, supply-chain, and other transaction networks. Blockchain technologies offers exciting new innovations, which will radically transform transaction networks and reduce the associated costs and risks. Learn the basis for a dynamic shared ledger that can be applied to save time when recording transactions between parties, remove costs associated with intermediaries, and reduce risks of fraud and tampering. All industries can benefit from this technology, from manufacturing to finance and intellectual property.

Blockchain is a technology for a new generation of transactional applications that establishes trust, accountability, and transparency, while streamlining business processes.

Learn what blockchain is and why it�s important along with how this technology will revolutionize transactions and business networks. Key architectural components that are specific to Hyperledger Fabric and how they interact to provide a foundation for a business blockchain network will be reviewed. The hands-on labs will show you how to deploy a Hyperledger Fabric network, how to create a working chaincode, how to deploy it to a blockchain network running on Linux on z Systems (or Linuxone), and how to run tests.

Audience
This course is designed for developers and system programmers who are interested in learning more about Blockchain technologies.
Prerequisites
You should have some experience working in a Linux environment.
