Blockchain is a fickle concept -- easy to grasp and provide use cases, but unnecessarily difficult to leverage in a practical, accessible manner for the typical development team. In this discussion, Brian Platz will show how FlureeDB -- a new graph database -- allows developers to bring blockchain concepts and strategies directly into SaaS. Using live code, he will show how a typical application can leverage blockchain characteristics, by covering the following:
Basics of how FlureeDB works under the hood
Blocks (transactions kept in an immutable, cryptographically-secured ledger)
Time Travel (exposing blocks to reproduce database instances as of any point in time)
A demonstration of general query concepts, using GraphQL and FlureeQL to interact with it.
Embedding permissions directly into database, and handing every user their own database to query at will
A simple real-time React app backed by FlureeDB with no application serves
Brian will also discuss the idea of Composite Blockchain Consensus -- in which developers can partition their data to lie on either a public, private, or internal blockchain, but join together to act as one database from an application's point of view. He will extrapolate upon the costs and benefits of using each consensus environment.
