The university held a lecture entitled “Blockchain from Theory to Practice” by Wael Alkhumor, Digital Advisor, Microsoft. The lecture took place at Sheikh Mohammed AlKhudair’s Hall, where the invitation was open to all university students to attend and benefit from such noteworthy initiative.
Eng. Alkhumor started the lecture by defining Blockchain as a disruptive technology in Digital Transformation. Later on, he tackled common questions about Blockchain and engaged the audience by asking the attendants and discussing the issue with them in a friendly learning environment. Eng. Wael stated that, “Blockchain establishes a secure, shared source of truth.” In other words, altering or deleting information without the knowledge of the whole network would be impossible. This surely ensures the safety of data related to large organizations and associations in many sectors, governmental, business, healthcare and many more. Eng. Alkhumor also introduced Azure building as part of the workshop, a cloud computing service created by Microsoft for building, testing, deploying, and managing applications and services through a global network of Microsoft-managed data centers.
Finally, the speakers answered workshop related questions from the attendants. Then, the university showed gratitude for Eng. Wael Alkumor effort by honoring him at the end of the workshop.
