July 20, 2018 - Crimson Vista, a high-tech consulting company, announced today that the company’s founder and chief scientist, Seth James Nielson, will be speaking at the 2018 Data Architecture Summer (DAS). Dr. Nielson will present “A Gentle Introduction to Blockchain” at the conference, which takes place on October 8-11, 2018 at the Westin Chicago River North hotel in Chicago, Illinois. The goal of DAS is to provide a comprehensive educational program that defines the essential elements of a modern Data Architecture, and explains how you can create it for your own organization.

Dr. Nielson’s presentation is directed toward professionals with expertise in data architecture who need to know how Blockchain works but who may have less exposure to the computer network and cryptography fundamentals that underlie the technology. During his presentation, Dr. Nielson will cover how blockchain works under the hood, the differences between public and private blockchains, and how blockchain might be useful to data and data architecture.
