Welcome to the shed. Let’s talk about tooling. Every artist, technician, and scientist will have their favourite assortment of tools for applying their craft. Developers, and more specifically, blockchain developers, can also benefit from a great set of tools. And while there are always ‘official’ tools released by software companies…


The elephant is in the room!

This blog is to help Corda developers with some basic features of Gradle for developing CorDapps on the Corda DLT. If you’ve ever peeked through a Gradle script, all the cryptic entries may seem overwhelming at first — but it’s actually not so scary. …


Seventeen one-to-ones, in 72 hours, with people smarter than me.

With the new quarterly release of the Token SDK comes a welcome change for the Java developer in the form of a refined APIs and two new token builders. …


Next iteration of Corda Tools

If you were around for CordaCon in Q4 last year, you might have remembered there were some pretty spiffy announcements related to developer tooling (see https://www.corda.net/blog/developer-updates-from-cordacon/ for a recap). A couple of these tools just got a level-up, and additionally, there’s a new player in town. To summarize in one…


With Visual Studio Code’s soaring popularity, we’ve released an extension to make developing a CordApp in VSCode a first class experience.
