Hyperledger Developers Workshop


This course will take you through all of the steps required to deploy an instance of The Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Fabric distributed ledger technology (DLT), and attach the Hyperledger Composer module that allows you to build concise, data-modeled smart contracts that are transportable, and version controlled.  This combination of technologies and skill sets will allow you to excel at modeling just about any business problem in record time, with an immutable ledger-based back-end that streamlines auditing by providing built-in transaction traceability.

The course will provide working sandboxes for all of the coding that is developed. 


Basics of Programming
1+ years of programming experience (validated by CV or certification)
JavaScript / Python programming is a PLUS
