What you'll learn

  • Understand Hyperledger's goals and projects
  • Learn how to get involved


Hyperledger is a global open source collaborative effort hosted by the Linux Foundation—participants include leaders in finance, banking, the internet of things, supply chains, manufacturing, and technology—created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. Hyperledger currently consists of eight projects: seven in incubation and one that graduated to active status in March 2017.

Tracy Kuhrt offers an overview of Hyperledger and its projects and outlines the ways that you can participate. You’ll leave with a set of initial steps to begin your journey with this growing community.

This session is sponsored by Hyperledger.
