To warm up for the 2nd Blockchain Hackathon Stuttgart, we want to offer participants an insights in some of the platform and technology that you might use during the event. This year the Blockchain Hackathon is happy to have among its technology partner Corda.
Corda is an open-source blockchain platform that has been designed and built from the ground up by R3, its members and the open source community to enable legal contracts and other shared data to be managed and synchronised between mutually untrusting organisations in any industry, but with particular applicability to financial services. Uniquely amongst enterprise blockchain platforms, Corda allows a diverse range of applications to interoperate on a single global network.
In advance to the Hackathon, the Corda Developer Relations team will host 4 free Corda introduction WebEx sessions each lasting two hours. Here are the dates:
- • JAN 29 (16:00 – 18:00 CET)
- • JAN 30 (15:00 – 17:00 CET)

No registration is required, you can directly join one or all sessions using this link. To participate, you will need to be familiar with Java and some blockchain basics, but aside from that, the Corda team will provide you with everything to build your own CorDapp on the day of the Hackathon.
