Blockchain West is the largest enterprise blockchain conference on the West Coast, jam packed with the latest use cases, proof of concepts, pilots, blockchain technology and more.
Blockchain West is differentiated from other Blockchain events in that it explores wider Blockchain use cases, proof of concepts, pilots and rollouts across Business and Government. This multi track event will start with big picture keynotes from Blockchain and Cryptocurrency experts, before splitting off into topic and vertical industry/sector specific tracks that will allow attendees to choose and focus on the applications of Blockchain that are most related to their individual needs.
Blockchain west will feature in depth case studies from organisations that are directly benefitting from blockchain implementations in enterprise and expert led panel discussions. The event will bring both the supply and demand side together and focus on a broad range of issues that go beyond just cryptocurrency as a use case, focusing on enterprise blockchain applications in supply chain, healthcare, trade, identity, security, fintech, DApps, Federal government applications, industry specific public or private blockchains etc.
Blockchain will be used by enterprise to reduce disputes, save time, increase efficiency in processes, and reduce the risk fraud or tampering in almost any transaction or process.

Marines’ Memorial Club and Hotel
National banks and regulators, exchanges and investment banks across the world are taking seriously the financial innovation of distributed ledger or block chain technology. The block chain, aka Trust Machine underpins “crypto currencies” such as Bitcoin; but it goes beyond digital money. It provides a shared, trusted, public ledger that everyone can inspect, but no single user controls. It is at the cusp of revolutionising international money transfers, trade finance, syndicated lending and collateral management, among other applications. As it allows for almost instantaneous payments and settlement, the potential impact on the role of traders, quants and other financial technologists cannot be underestimated.
This conference brings together Block Chain technologists in the finance sector, regulators, industry commentators, computer science researchers and others involved in financial innovation; these experts explore some of the technology and the many applications of Block chain in Financial Services.
Mani Madhukar, Developer Advocate from IBM will be delivering a session on Enterprise use cases of Blockchain based solutions
Mani has around 12 years of experience with exposure to both industry and academia. As a part of Ecosystem development team at IBM he works with ISVs/startups towards adoption of IBM Cloud. His current focus is identifying/working with companies with Blockchain based solutions and assist them with Hyperledger and IBM Bluemix services. Mani represents IBM in various forums as speaker/panelist on technology areas including Cloud, Blockchain, IOT, Watson etc. He is mentor to Blockchain community in Bangalore supporting community sessions on IBM Blockchain/Hyperledger and IBM Cloud (https://www.meetup.com/Exploring-Blockchain-Bangalore-Meetup/).

The Suryaa New Delhi
Blockchain is considered a disruptive technology that will transform how we do business much like the Internet. From enterprise applications such as smart contracts and tracking in supply chains to frictionless payments, streamlined settlements and other applications in finance, businesses are rapidly researching and adopting blockchain technology in all parts of their organizations. In addition, social innovations are already making an impact by using the blockchain to track climate change or to provide identity, financial inclusion, education, and healthcare for underrepresented populations.
The conference will feature research academics, industry experts, and regulators to discuss a wide-variety of topics related to the applications of this emerging technology. It will also provide insightful discussions on the legal, technological, and financial challenges that enterprises face when developing blockchain initiatives. Whether you are new to blockchain or an expert working on blockchain applications, come meet and mingle with some pioneers in blockchain to learn more about this new wave in business.

Blockchain is far more than a platform for a currency, it is a platform for decentralizing the web of applications in a profoundly secure way. The Blockchain developer conference is the largest convergence of Blockchain developers seeking exposure to the newest technologies for building decentralized apps in FinTech, Healthcare, Government, Enterprise, and the Consumer space.
Blockchain innovation has proceeded in 3 stages, and the Blockchain developer conference has a track for each stage.
Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency
The rise of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) illustrate the power of Blockchain as a digital currency platform. This track shows developers new ways to integrate and extend the most common Blockchain currencies and create their own currency.
FinTech, Ethereum, Smart Contracts
The second phase of Blockchain involves the expansion of Blockchain as a financial technology back-end. Much of this FinTech infrastructure innovation has extended the Ethereum platform through ‘smart contracts’, or decentralized autonomous contracts using unique contract scripting languages. Learn how you can develop the next generation of finance, real estate, government, and ecommerce apps.
Blockchain Platforms and Decentralized Data
Just as the web was able to decentralize information around a shared protocol, Blockchain is now able to decentralize and secure any type of transaction, activity, or data. The implications for this will change identity management, personal data management, media licensing, and any type of secure application development requiring 100% standardization and security across any cloud, platform, or device.

Digital technologies let people who’ve never met do business across borders and continents in an instant. But how can they trust one another without relying on bureaucracy and middlemen? How can security, identity, and ownership be guaranteed while still operating at the speed of the Internet?
Blockchains, or distributed ledgers, may provide the answer.
Companies, researchers, and governments are exploring how blockchains can secure trust without the need for middlemen or third parties. Leaders in a wide range of industries around the world are seeking to understand how distributed ledgers can help them operate more efficiently.
MIT Technology Review in collaboration with MIT Media Lab Digital Currency Initiative invite you to a one-day conference examining the technology, ethics, and impact of blockchains.
• Meet pioneers in this emerging field
• Learn about the technology to gain business advantage
• Separate fact from hype, and what’s imminent from what’s far off
New feature: Blockchain Primer Join us for a pre-event explainer session on the fundamentals of blockchain, featuring experts from MIT and industry.

Open source is the way of the world.
From the explosion of AI with frameworks like TensorFlow, MXNet, and PyTorch to blockchain projects like Hyperledger, Bitcoin, and Ethereum, as well as infrastructure disruptors like Kubernetes, Prometheus, and Istio—open source is the value that fuels new industries and pushes forward long standing ones.
OSCON has been ground zero of the open source movement. In its 20th year, OSCON continues to be the catalyst for innovation and success for companies.
Unlike other conferences, we cover open source projects across all origins and affiliations—our program focuses solely on projects in areas of innovation. OSCON isn’t just open source, OSCON is:
Open source + AI
Open source + blockchain
Open source + infrastructure
Open source + edge computing
Open source + open data
Open source + community
Open source = Innovation
Innovative and emerging open source projects are at the center of OSCON 2018. Each track has been selected for its significance to software development and solving critical real-world problems:
Blockchain beyond Bitcoin
Emerging languages such as Kotlin, Go, Elm
Software Development methodologies: From ideation to deployment
Cloud strategies and implementation
Open source in enterprise case studies
Open Source: Past, Present, and Future
We bring community, enterprise, individual contributors, and engineering teams together to move open source forward by highlighting best practices, projects that transform business, and insight into what you need next.
