This month is going to be very busy (for too many people, for sure ;-)). In our case, we are really happy to announce a new interesting event for the next 22th of March, thanks to the visit of Ben Evans.
In this talk, Ben will discuss Java bytecode and classloading, and a new way to make the JVM environment suitable for running 'smart contracts' for cryptocurrency and blockchain applications, including R3's Corda and IBM Hyperledger. Developers who are interested in learning more about the JVM's bytecode, classloading should attend. No previous knowledge or experience of distributed ledgers, cryptocurrency or blockchains is required.
