Establishing Trust in a Blockchain Ecosystem

Add to calendar

The challenge for test teams in organizations that want to use blockchain technologies is to not only test chaincode that manages the execution of transactions on their blockchain networks but also to test the provision and scalability of the blockchain networks themselves. James Hunter presents new approaches that are emerging to test blockchain technology, supply-chain business processes and transactions, and APIs from multiple perspectives; to simulate the behavior of consensus within a blockchain network; and to test integrations at scale without affecting the distributed ledger. James shares examples of real projects, the lessons learned … and the lessons that continue to be learned. Leave with a good understanding of the needs for testing on blockchain-related projects and with advice based on what has been effective on real-life projects.
