Programming With Hyperledger

Stage: Implementing

8 hour workshop


Level III - Implementing Blockchain



Recommended Background

Blockchain Development Decision Modules I & II. Programming experience required


Capacitate programmers within the organization, with fundamental Hyperledger development knowledge which will allow them to build permissioned blockchain applications.


Your organization has been through our Blockchain Development Decision workshops have concluded that a permissioned blockchain is the best solution for the business. The decision makers have also decided that the Hyperledger protocol is the one that best fits the use-case requirements. It’s now time to get down to business and go through all of the steps required to deploy an instance of Hyperledger Fabric distributed ledger technology and attach the Hyperledger Composer module that allows to build concise, data-modeled smart contracts that are transportable, and version controlled.
