Using TDD to Create a Blockchain in Python
By: Matt Brown, Pattern98
Intermediate, 45 mins
Bitcoin and cryptocurrency is all the rage. Many industries are under attack from technology companies using a distributed ledger (fintech, healthcare, IOT, ...). Lots of money is being made (and likely lost) in this new currency and most people don't even understand what is happening. We will work to de-mystify the math and computing behind the currency and then use our new found knowledge to build a simple implementation in python using TDD principles.

Blockchain Revelations: Why It's Not Changing Healthcare (Yet)
By: JP Bader, Next Health Choice
45 mins
Popularized by cryptocurrencies, blockchain's relatively unknown amongst healthcare. As a secure, distributed, permanent ledger system, blockchain creates transparency and accountability. Blockchain won't solve world hunger, halt global warming, or cure cancer. This session will cover what it is, why it is important, and where different communities are trending. Ultimately we will help managers understand implications of blockchain on healthcare, including at organizational, vendor, and payer levels. We'll conclude with critiques and opportunities for healthcare innovation.

Linking the Chain: How I Used my Python development Experience to Break into the Blockchain Industry and Architect a Better Data Solution
By: Brian Schuster, Hivergent
Beginner, 30 mins
While working as a python developer and data solution architect in early 2016, I became fascinated with the potential of blockchain technology and made an effort to enter the industry. After leaving my career last September, I used my experience and insight to cultivate new opportunities and application solutions in the blockchain industry. Here’s how I spent six months launching Hivergent, and what it taught me about creating new opportunities and building your skillset. In this speech, I will cover how: I laid the groundwork for cultivating new opportunities I used my previous python skills to experiment with new projects I constructively volunteered my development skills to build strong relationships and better ideas Hivergent inevitably formed from this process of exploration and experimentation Others can use this process to create their own opportunity in new industries
