Chief Scientist, By the Bay. Founder and organizer of leading developer meetups and OSS conferences in the Silicon Valley, partnering with global technology giants such as IBM, Apple, Twitter, Uber, and Salesforce.

Why our conference is different?

Engineering Excellence for Decentralized Enterprise Systems

«Rethink Trust is the first blockchain engineering conference focusing on replacing the existing trust mechanisms in the enterprise. We show several key verticals where blockchain and Hyperledger solutions are used to re-engineer the trust mechanisms underlying payments, IoT, trading systems, energy, and other.

We look at the trade-offs of such re-engineering — where the efficiencies are obtained, where new risks are created, and how to mitigate them, and what new value is created.»

Key Differentiators

Some of the ideas you’ll see that are not usually discussed at traditional blockchain expos:

  • Engineering Excellence First. Our communities built distributed systems for decades, including Twitter. They are not built in JavaScript or Python. You’ll see why. We bring the leading voices of the Open Source community, the Hyperledger Foundation, our keynote, the Linux Foundation, our sponsors, to educate your engineers.
  • Enterprise Use Cases First. We do not discuss ICOs to start new businesses, we focus on existing global businesses becoming better with meaningful blockchain augmentation. We do not “bring your company on the blockchain”, we consider when, and how, Hyperledger solutions can improve your business, open new avenues of advance, or even new verticals.
  • Trust and Trustless Systems from the First Principles. Our program is rooted in the fundamental topic of the conference that is trust. Computational systems allow for new ways of trustless consensus, and they are replacing or augmenting existing, implicit trust networks. We are interested specifically in the ways that reengineered trust will propagate through business verticals, how to regulate it and mitigate its risks, and how to help enterprises build these systems with world-class engineers comprising our communities.

    Workshop 1 Hyperledger Fabric
    Description desc-open copy 3 Created with Sketch.

    This presentation will introduce the audience to Hyperledger, an open source collaborative effort to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies for business. This will cover the goals of the organization and its different projects and activities.The presentation will then focus on Hyperledger Fabric, a modular and flexible blockchain framework design to address the requirements of the business use cases benefiting from the use of blockchain technology. This part will cover the design principles which motived the development of Fabric and which differentiate it from other blockchain technologies. It will introduce the audience to Fabric's overall architecture and process flow, as well as give specific information on how to get start with developing a blockchain application using Fabric.

    Anyone can benefit from the first part of the presentation but the second part is much more technical in nature and aimed at giving network admistrators and application developers a good understanding of how a Fabric blockchain network and application function.

    Workshop 3 Blockchain in Scala
    Description desc-open copy 3 Created with Sketch.

    In this workshop, Nick Edmonds, CTO and Co-Founder of Topl, will introduce you their Edda framework. Designed to be deployed as single-use public, permissionless blockchains, Edda incorporates the first implementation of the Ouroboros Genesis consensus algorithm, allows for domain specific smart contracts, and supports complex actor types and attributes.

    Leveraging the JVM for its cross-platform capabilities along with the built-in JavaScript runtime environment the Nashorn Engine, this framework takes advantage of the concise structure of Scala in combination with the ability to write smart contracts in JavaScript, one of the most popular programming languages in the world. A blockchain created with the Edda framework can be deployed on nearly every device, with a smart contract language most developers are already familiar with.

    Scala’s Akka actor model provides for a highly concurrent and distributed system, important for decentralization and speed when settling transactions within a distributed network. Pattern matching, case classes, and strong typing system within Scala allow the Edda framework to easily create new tokens and digitize assets onto the blockchain. The immutability of functional programming in Scala lends itself well to abstracting data structures used to build blockchains.

    Abstracting core components into easy to reason models allows multiple developers or teams to quickly add new features within the framework. Through this session, you will become familiar with the motivations behind a Scala and functional-first blockchain implementation, the architecture of a single-use blockchain, and the steps needed to deploy your own specialized chain.
