The Keyhole team is proud to announce the publishing of a new white paper: Blockchain For The Enterprise.

In the most simple terms, a blockchain is a distributed data system for keeping a ledger of immutable data transactions.

If you happen to be a developer and you are using Git for source code control, you are already using some of the distributed blockchain elements.

In this white paper, we discuss a number of topics related to blockchain with a particular emphasis on the enterprise. This document will be in three major parts. Part one will include a brief overview and history of blockchain, part two will include a deep technical dive, and the third part is written with the intent to aid managers and executives in their decision making in regards to blockchain…

React NowPlaying Educational Application

Lauren Fournier Angular, Company News, JavaScript, Keyhole Creations, React, Single-Page Application, Technology Snapshot Leave a Comment

We at Keyhole have been helping our clients adopt JavaScript-based single-page applications for over five years. We have been impressed with the adoption and advancement of the ever-changing JavaScript ecosystem.

React is a JavaScript technology that our teams enjoy working with. However, React differs from the other frameworks we’ve worked with in a handful of ways.

The best way to learn a new technology is to actually do something with it, as opposed to simply reading about it. So, we created a tangible React learning application to help our team get up-to-speed. The application repository has now been released publicly to help others learn.
