No one could have seen blockchain coming. Now that it’s here, blockchain has the potential to completely reinvent the world of financial transactions, as well as other industries. In this interview, we talked to JAX London speaker Brian Behlendorf about the past, present, and future of this emerging technology.
It’s been two months since Oracle joined the Hyperledger consortium and now the tech giant is taking another step towards showing its interest in blockchain — they just announced Oracle Blockchain Cloud Service.
web3j is a lightweight Java library for integrating with clients on the Ethereum blockchain. And now you can integrate it into your Spring Boot applications. In this article, JAX London speaker Conor Svensson shows how easily web3j integrates with the Spring Framework.
You’ve surely heard of blockchain by now but that doesn’t mean you actually understand what it is. Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. The technology is complex, no doubt about it, which might be the reason why not many developers are interested (yet!) in cultivating this skill. Let’s make this technology more digestible, shall we?
In the fourth and final part on this series about the future of blockchain, Jill Richard explores the new frontier of a transformed mobility ecosystem. This new frontier that could accelerate the development of autonomous driving technology, is predicated with a firehose of data.
How can we make blockchain more consumable? First, we need to identify and deal with the challenges that limit blockchain mainstream adoption. We talked to Matthew Spoke, CEO of Nuco and a founding member of the Enterprise Ethereum Foundation about the dangers of blockchain fragmentation, how Aion may help bridge these gaps in the industry, and how we can bring blockchain into the mainstream.
Women are underrepresented in the tech sector —myth or reality? In addition to the Women in Tech survey, we also launched a diversity series aimed at bringing the most inspirational and powerful women in the tech scene to your attention. Today, we’d like you to meet Barbara Mellish, Director of the Centre for Citizenship Enterprise and Governance.
A new, evolving automotive ecosystem is turning car-generated data into valuable products and services. In part three of this series, Jill Richmond explains how the self-driving ecosystem is poised to have a huge impact not only on the new ride-sharing environment, but also on the technical and architectural enablers within the automotive industry.
Blockchain has the ability to transform our daily lives along multiple verticals. We talked with Max Kordek, co-founder and president of the Lisk Foundation, about Lisk, the importance of open source, and how we can make blockchain more accessible and relevant to the mainstream.
The future of autonomous driving is no longer a theoretical point in the distance. It’s here. And none of this would be possible without the advent of blockchain technology. In part two of this series, Jill Richman explains how cars now generate data about how they are used, where they are located, and who is behind the wheel.
The future of autonomous driving is no longer a theoretical point in the distance. It’s here. And none of this would be possible without the advent of blockchain technology. In part one of this series, Jill Richmond explores the present and future of blockchain disruption for the automobile industry.
What comes to your mind when you hear the word Java? How about blockchain, DevOps and microservices? If you want to learn about emerging technologies or dive deeper into topics you’re already familiar with (I’m looking at you Java 9), what better way to do that than to go straight to the source? Open the magazine and allow the experts to shower you with information!
Is the blockchain just a hype? Can it offer an exponential benefit above other existing technologies? It’s safe to say that blockchain is not going away, so people working in tech should have (at least) a base-level understanding of how this technology works. This infographic sums up the findings on blockchain’s importance and future.
We’ve been so focused on the benefits blockchain has on the finance sector that we’ve forgotten about the legal industry. Enter the Accord Project, the world’s first consortium for smart legal contracts. It’s worth your attention because it seems to be the place where legal and tech come together. We invited Peter Hunn and Houman Shadab, founders of Clause.io to tell us more about the Accord Project and the aim of this initiative.
