Overview/Description

Learn how to use the Azure Blockchain Workbench application through this practical 12-video course, which focuses on setting up a blockchain network and the development and deployment of an application on that network. The course requires having an account on Microsoft’s Azure Service. Explore some of the features on Azure’s dashboard; learn how to set up resource groups and use the Azure marketplace; and learn to create users for the application on Azure's Active Directory. See how to build a full-fledged blockchain application by defining just two files, a smart contract written in Solidity, and an accompanying config file with definitions of workflows and transitions. Then code an application to record a transfer of an asset from one user to the other using a well-defined workflow. See how to track provisioning of the Blockchain Workbench and provisioned resources and to use Workbench to provision a VM. At the end of this course, you will be able to build your own blockchain application.
