Blockchain technology – the architecture that underpins digital currencies such as Bitcoin – is going mainstream, with organisations such as Barclays, Nasdaq, Ebay, the Bank of England and IBM developing projects based on distributed ledger principles.
As developers grapple with the challenges of this emerging technology, so must testers understand how to evaluate and test blockchain applications. Note that blockchain use cases are not limited to the financial world – smart contracts have the ability to touch many different areas of our lives, from energy allocation to government services.
After this workshop, you will:
• Understand at a high level the requirements for a proposed blockchain project and how to test them
• Know the main differences between several different types of blockchain, including Bitcoin, Ethereum and Hyperledger
• Be able to debug a simple contract using a local test node of Ethereum (optional)
Dockerfiles will be provided for anyone who has Docker installed and is comfortable working with it. There will also be an option to use a browser-based debugging tool for those who don't want to use Docker.
