Techstock 2018 was organised by Royal Bank of Scotland on 7th and 8th August at their RBS office Gurgaon. IBM participated in this event as a Technical Partner. We were allocated three booths in the technology areas like Blockchain,Cloud/datascience and Chatbot wherein we displayed the capabilities of the IBM Cloud platform in different capacities (aligned to the tech areas stated above). There were 500 participants, which was a mix of RBS internal developers, analysts, architects and the entire leadership team, across various regions. RBS CEO Ross McEwan visited our booth along with Indian interim Head of Technology Neeraj Goyal. CEO and other leaders were very excited to explore/understand the features of the platform demoed to them and have expressed desire to explore this in a more structured way in the near future. The booths were ably managed by IBM developer advocates Riya, Mangesh, Raghavendra, Krishna and Karan.
DBS-Blockchain workshop was kickstarted sharp at 9 AM with an audience of 40. Horea Porutiu provided the basic understandings of Bitcoin,public and private blockchain network.
followed by Raghavendra Deshpande delivering a session on Blockchain concepts, Hyperledger Fabric and Composer.. After understanding the basics, the developers were guided to build their first blockchain network using the Hyperledger Fabric and Composer. After learning to set-up the first blockchain network, developers were asked to execute the marble sample which demonstrates the usage of Go language and IBM blockchain starter plan. DBS had signed for 2 accounts with Pay as you go and Developer advocates made use of these 2 accounts for using the IBM blockchain service. After the hands-on, Kaustubh Oak delivered a session on what is a suitable blockchain use case and about the litmus test. Later in the evening we had quizzes and asked the candidates to summarize what they have learned during the workshop. Goodies were given away to the top 2. Overall very good interactive session with developers. The next step is for DBS folks to identify the use cases they want to pursue for POC.
IBM launched a global initiative #CallforCode that brings together Start-up and Enterprise Developers, to help prepare against natural disasters, at the Viva Tech Conference in Paris on May 24. This ambitious initiative aims to support the work of the UN Human Rights Office and American Red Cross’s international network in their efforts to minimize the devastating human impact of natural disasters like fires, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunamis. Call for Code will give 22 million developers around the world an opportunity to build technology that literally saves and improves lives. Call for Code opens on June 18 and closes on Aug 31.
