What you'll learn

  • Explore new Hyperledger projects and integrations


Hyperledger is an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. Tracy Kuhrt shares what’s new with Hyperledger, including projects that have reached 1.0 production level and what that means. She also touches on new integrations among different Hyperledger technologies, including Hyperledger Sawtooth and Hyperledger Burrow, and offers a quick intro to four new projects that were accepted into incubation in 2017: Hyperledger Burrow, Hyperledger Indy, Hyperledger Composer, and Hyperledger Quilt. Tracy concludes by discussing development efforts and how developers can get involved, aspirations for the projects, and what to expect in subsequent releases.

This session is sponsored by Hyperledger.
