The Blockchain and Smart Contracts
The first session in November was a sell-out! Due to popular demand, new dates have been added for 2017:
- Auckland: 17 February 2017
- Wellington: 13 February 2017
This half-day workshop is a practical introduction to Blockchain principles and technologies for business people. Delivered by experts Mark Pascall and Paul Salisbury, topics include the enablement of new business models, intersections with Open Data and Internet of Things, and the inherent strengths/weaknesses of Blockchains. Real-world examples of Smart Contracts will also help attendees gain an understanding of the potential for automation of business logic and externally aware thinking.
No technical or programming knowledge is necessary, just a passion for learning about new disruptive technologies and the business threats & opportunities that they present. Attendees will get hands on experience running a real smart contract and locking their record of attendance at the workshop on to the blockchain.
