About the Book
Ever gone through hundred and ten resources for blockchain and still not able to figure out where to start off. Well this book would lay the foundation for most of the concepts that you would require to at least get started somewhere and scratch the surface of this hyped technology.
From the different underlying technicalities to the diversity of platforms, from the variety of scenarios where Blockchain fits to understanding when it would be an overkill, from learning the two most important platforms to getting you started for creating your own applications on top of them, from various simple humorous references to intriguing exercises, this book aims to not only make you feel comfortable with the technology but also confident enough to ponder more about it.
About the Authors
Fuelled by caffeine, sarcasm and puns, we (Yathish R and Tejaaswini N) are final year students of the Computer Science Department, Global Academy of Technology, Bengaluru, Karnataka. Mr. Robot and Dr. House have taught us what the education system has lacked to teach. Having worked on Blockchain with bare minimal resources, weve a fair idea of the issues faced by a beginner. Thus, we have written this book from the perspective of a beginner to enable a smooth learning process and motivate the readers to carry on growing their knowledge in this field. Having worked closely with the industry for two years, weve understood the gap between academia and the industry, and have tried to make up for the gap in this edition of the book.
Hoping to get better with time.
