Blockchain in Azure: What is it, how do I use it and why should I care?

Blockchain - you might have heard the hype but do you know what it is, what you can do with it and when you should (and shouldn't) care? In this month's Meetup we will discuss all these aspects of Blockchain and talk about how this technology can be used in Azure, and what kinds of business problems it can be used to solve. 

Agenda

• What is it? An overview of Blockchain for those who have never heard of it

• What is it for? Use cases for Oil & Gas, Energy, Financial Services and other industries

• Blockchain in the Enterprise How Blockchain can be used in the enterprise. We'll talk about how it can be used with things like IoT technologies, artificial intelligence or other enterprise apps. We'll also discuss where it works well - and where it doesn’t work well at all, and what questions to ask to help guide you in your adoption.
