You might not have heard of Hyperledger or not know much about it, but you must have heard of the Linux Foundation and IBM. Well the Linux Foundation, in 2015, announced the creation of the Hyperledger Project. This was the way they thought blockchain technologies and smart contracts can be better adapted to business needs and tomorrow’s digital landscape. IBM has jump into the opportunity with their contributions to the Hyperledger Fabric project and has thus far met unprecedented acceptance by large corporations like MAERSK and Walmart, whilst the Intel-contributed Hyperledger Sawtooth is now used by Huawei and T-Mobile.
Our workshop is focused on the Hyperledger Sawtooth, its versatility and the advantages it brings to businesses. We will go through the basics of Hyperledger frameworks and the differences between Fabric and Sawtooth. Then it is hands-on all the way starting with Docker & Sawtooth installation, moving to the details and how things work and closing with two case studies utilizing and working on transaction families (smart contracts). Can you afford to miss it?
