The Presentation

The Algorand Blockchain - Decentralized and for Developers 

Algorand is a new blockchain built on a permissionless, pure proof of stake, decentralized agreement protocol, where anyone can participate and requires minimal computational power. This protocol finalizes transactions very quickly and offers true decentralization.

For developers the Algorand blockchain provides JavaScript, Java, and Go SDKs. Additionally REST endpoints are provided for interacting with the nodes and handling wallet functions. These REST endpoints are based on the OpenAPI Specification and can be used to build clients in any language.

In this talk I will cover the basics of how the Algorand protocol works, cover the architecture overview, managing the node with the command line tools, and show developers how to integrate using the SDKs to build Layer 2 applications.
