Building smart contracts and applications with Hyperledger Fabric

Day 1 - 10th Dec 13:30-14:20 Hall 7 #CM Advanced Novice

Hyperledger Fabric is a permissioned blockchain technology where developers can build smart contracts, and applications that interact with deployed smart contracts. Smart contracts and applications can be developed in a range of programming languages, including Go, Java, and JavaScript, allowing developers to easily get started with this technology by taking advantage of their existing skills.

In this talk, you will learn the basics of smart contract development. You will learn how to build your first smart contract, how to write a transaction function, and how to interact with the ledger using the available APIs.

You will also learn the basics of application development. You will learn how to build your first application by using a connection profile and a wallet/identity to connect to a gateway peer, and how to submit a transaction to a smart contract.

Developers already familiar with Hyperledger Fabric will be able to learn about the significant enhancements that we’ve been delivering to the smart contract and application programming model since Hyperledger Fabric v1.4, including an update on our current plans.
