Hello, Blockmason community! Another week is upon us, which means it’s time for another Weekly Update.

Are you ready? Let’s get started!


Get Building with Blockchain Series: Blockchain-Powered Microservices

Have you ever considered a microservice architecture for your next project? Microservices can be a useful way to keep your code base manageable and to reduce potential code conflicts as your application grows. Using Link is one of the fastest ways you can deploy your next suite of microservices, and we recently held a webinar demonstrating exactly how you can do that.

In this demonstration, we show developers how they can deploy three separate microservices across 2 public blockchains (GoChain and Ethereum) and 1 private blockchain (Link Private Network). This builds upon our past workshops which we recommend you check out on our website https://blockmason.link/tutorial/.

The recording for “Building Blockchain-Powered Microservices With Blockmason Link” is now available for developers who were unable to attend.
