This month we have another great Meetup scheduled!
Talking Blockchain Tech With Microsoft
If you’ve been keeping up with the latest blockchain news you’ll know that Microsoft is jumping in deep with its Blockchain strategy.
To tell us all about what they’re up to we have Eric Maino and Shawn Cicoria from Microsoft speaking about Blockchain technology and where they expect it to be taken.
They’ll also cover how Microsoft is partnering with Blockchain technology startups like Consensys, Eris & BlockApps to provide “Blockchain as a Service” (see https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/solutions/blockchain/).
We’ll also hear about ‘Project Bletchley‘, which provides Blockchain middleware as well as cryptlets – which can be thought of as ultra secure Oracles that run on attested servers (see https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/bletchley-blockchain/ and https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/project-bletchley-blockchain-infrastructure-made-easy/).
Also, we have a very special report from David Burela on Devcon 2 and the International Blockchain Summit which he attended last month. More specifically, he’ll be discussing some of the new projects, smart contract security and testing that were on display at the conference.
For those that want to read up on Devcon 2 feel free to check out David’s write-up about the event on his blog => https://davidburela.wordpress.com/2016/09/21/devcon2-report-day-2-more-session-notes-photos/

6.30pm – Kick off with talks from Eric Maino and Shawn Cicoria on what Microsoft is working on in the Blockchain space followed by a Devcon 2 report from David Burela
