#LTGWorkshops - Understanding Blockchain and Testing with Rhian Lewis

Jun 29, 2017 · Greater London, United Kingdom

*****This post is for information only. This workshop is one of the workshops at #LTGWorkshops.  You will need to register for the #LTGWorkshops.*****

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.

Rhian Lewis is a contract test automation specialist, who has worked on projects for some of Europe's largest financial, leisure and automotive brands. She is also the co-developer of the cryptocurrency portfolio tracker countmycrypto.com and a co-founder of award-winning blockchain startup Mamoru.io. She works as an independent blockchain consultant and runs the London Women in Bitcoin Meetup group. She was named as one of the CoinFilter Top 40 Women in Bitcoin, and last year made it into the Richtopia list of Top 100 Fintech Influencers.
