Blockchain & the Internet of Things

On July 13, 2017, I gave a presentation at the evening meeting of the Professional and Technical Consultants Association (PATCA) in Sunnyvale, California.  PATCA is Silicon Valley’s longest operating non-profit professional association dedicated to serving independent consultants and the client companies that use them. See https://patca.org/meetup/patca-evening-networking-discussion-meeting-30/.

The presentation explained how Blockchain technology works and how it is being adopted for a variety of IoT use cases. For example, distributed ledgers containing time-stamped, immutable records of device configurations and data generated by IoT devices. Also, enabling devices to interact and transact at the “edge” of the network, instead of in the “cloud.”


Blockchain Event – June 2016

In June 2016, we produced an event with a stellar list of speakers and panelists on BLOCKCHAIN – IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT BITCOIN AND FINANCE: Opportunities for the Internet of Things, Healthcare, and More.  

We brought together technologists and business people to exchange ideas on what can be done with blockchain distributed ledger technology and when it is appropriate to use it.

See the list of speakers and links to the presentations and quite a few relevant articles at http://events.42tek.com.
