Global Blockchain Summit
October 19, 2018 @ 8:00 am - October 20, 2018 @ 5:00 pm PDT
The Global Blockchain Summit is the cornerstone of Denver Blockchain Week, a gathering of experts from around the country sharing knowledge, tips, trends and insights about Blockchain, a breakthrough technology that enables the trusted digital registration & exchange of just about anything. It will be a chance for the newcomer to learn the history and basics of this emerging technology, and for the familiar to learn more about its current and future applications. Money, music, health records, car titles, certificates, company ownership, deeds, & digital identities are just a few options. The format will be less traditional than a typical conference. There will be large group presentations, small group lectures, lightning round discussions as well as time to interact with others in the field. We are striving to make this the most valuable Global Blockchain Summit for you, the participant. We have an emphasis on Global Women in Blockchain, equality, and diversity for the 2018 Summit.
Speaker: Kyle Den Hartog, Hyperledger Ambassador for the Hyperledger Indy Project
Date/Time: October 17/9:00am – 12:00pm
Title: Hyperledger Indy Workshop and IBM Hyperledger Fabric Workshop
Session: In this workshop we’ll take a two-sided approach to address a wide audience of business minded decision makers and developers who are looking to learn more about using Hyperledger Indy. The first 15 minutes of this workshop will cover an introduction to topics that shows how relying on Hyperledger Indy for identity can enable businesses to integrate self sovereign identity and gain a competitive advantage. The following 2 and a half hours will help developers by working our way through the topics of “How do I get an Indy network setup?” and “How can I use a Hyperledger Indy network to handle identity in my applications?”. Specifically, we’ll walk through the getting started guide which provides an example use case and give an introduction to the IndySDK which enables apps to integrate SSI with an existing network of Indy Nodes, or by setting up their own network of Indy nodes. Kyle looks forward to seeing you there and answering your questions about SSI, DIDs, and Hyperledger Indy.
