(English): Develop a Blockchain application from scratch in Python
July 23, 2020
In this webinar, we introduce Python developers, of any programming skill level, to blockchain. You’ll discover exactly what a blockchain is, by implementing a public blockchain from scratch and by building a simple application to leverage it.
You’ll be able to create endpoints for different functions of the blockchain using the Flask micro-framework, and then run the scripts on multiple machines to create a decentralized network. You’ll also see how to build a simple user interface that interacts with the blockchain and stores information for any use case, such as peer-to-peer payments, chatting, or e-commerce.
