The Pistoia Alliance Blockchain Bootcamp is part of the Pistoia Alliance's blockchain education efforts.   It is free for all Pistoia Alliance members. Non-members are welcome, and will be charged a fee.  Coming out of the event we expect our attendees will have a much better understanding of the technology, and can start more effectively evaluating if/how blockchain could be applied to challenges facing Life Sciences R&D

Are you ready to roll up your sleeves and actually build some apps on a blockchain?  If so, this event is for you.  The first day will focus on Hyperledger Fabric training, while the second day will offer hands-on coding of some life-sciences-related use cases.  Plan to bring your computer and your curiosity and creativity. Event Instructor  wll be Kris Bennet, of the Blockchain Training Alliance
