Developers: Let’s Blockchain!

Blockchain is super hot. It’s one of those disruptive technologies that comes along and rewrites the rules on how the game is played.

Of course, Blockchain is nothing new. You’ve (probably) heard of blockchain in the context of Bitcoin. So the idea of a transparent ledger filled with immutable transactions based on a wide consensus network is nothing new.

Do you want to build one? Yeah, that’s right. Build one. Right now. You can build your very own blockchain network.

“But, Steve, how do I do that? I wouldn’t even know how to get started!” Fear not, my friend. I’ve got ya covered!

Check out this tutorial I wrote for IBM developerWorks on using Hyperledger Composer, specifically Hyperledger Composer Playground. Playground lets you define and test a blockchain network, all from the safety and comfort of your favorite browser. Define assets, transactions (the basis of the smart contract), events, and more.

And when you’re happy your network is perfect, you can deploy it as part of a real blockchain application.

The Playground tutorial is just the beginning. I’m currently writing parts 2 and 3 of the 3 part series on using Hyperledger Composer to build Hyperledger Fabric blockchain networks. Check it out.

Are you ready? Let’s Blockchain!
