Blockchain has witnessed a growing interest in the last few years. And this is not a surprise. Thanks to this technology, you can create transactions that are then included in a distributed database. Such database is distributed in a peer-to-peer (P2P) system, and each transaction is verified by the majority of participants to the whole system. In other words, a transaction is verified by peers, with no certification authorities.

The interest towards Blockchain involves many business areas, but all of them require developers. And programming to support Blockchain is not always easy. This is one of the reasons why the team of Lisk decided to release the new Alpha SDK, providing a reliable and easy to use JavaScript interface.

By using this new SDK, developers can create and register new Blockchain transactions with few lines of codes. Here is a snippet, to quickly get the idea:

As part of the upcoming Berlin Blockchain Week, Lisk is hosting the Lisk SDK workshop, open to any local developers on August 28th. Within the workshop, developers will learn a bit more about the new Alpha SDK capabilities, followed by a hands-on coding challenge. The aim of the workshop is to help developers get a deep understanding and hands-on experience using the SDK.

Attendees will also be able to meet the development team and ask any questions they have about the topic. Anyone interested in this opportunity can join them at their Berlin office.

Finally, thanks to the partnership between Lisk and Codemotion, by attending this workshop you will have the unique opportunity to win a free ticket for Codemotion Berlin 2019, which will be held on November 12-13. You can find the conference agenda, as well as our speakers list by visiting this page.

There are 3 free tickets for 3 lucky developers, who can earn them as a prize after the coding challenge. Do not miss this opportunity!

As a final note, due to the high amount of required resources from the Lisk team, the spots are limited. You can find more information and book for the event by visiting this page.
