Hello, and welcome to these video calls about blockchain for Azure developers. My name is Stefano Tempesta. I’m a Microsoft Regional Director and MVP.
In this video course I am presenting an overview of the blockchain technology in Azure. And then more in detail we’ll look into tools, and best practices, architectural references for building a blockchain smart contract in application in the Azure network. We’ll look specifically into Azure Blockchain Workbench and its architectural reference; how Blockchain Workbench integrates with the rest of the Azure platform; the integration patterns for on and off chain data access; how we can consume the API exposed by Workbench itself; and, at the end, specific real world use cases of application of the blockchain technology to the enterprise.
We’ll focus mainly on decentralized digital identities, on supply chain, and on electronic signature– everything deployed on the Azure Cloud.
