Welcome to the Resources section for the Go Vertical Blockchain Workshop! Here you’ll find a number of educational resources for learning about blockchain and associated technologies in preparation for the workshop event. We strongly encourage everyone to invest time preparing for the event, especially if you’re new to blockchain technology and concepts. Whether you are a business or developer participant, you’ll find a number of useful resources below to familiarize yourself with blockchain concepts.
If you are developer, you’ll find additional technical resources related to the Ethereum and and Hyperledger blockchain platforms, the platforms we are supporting for the workshop. Although both Ethereum and Hyperledger both support advanced blockchain concepts, the platforms are quite different. We strongly encourage you to familiarize yourselves with the merits of both platforms and choose the one most appropriate for your workshop team and project.
There are many excellent starter resources for understanding blockchain technology.
