- HyperLedger Fabric for Sys Admins
When designing and building an enterprise blockchain application on Hyperledger, it is very important to distinguish between the system administration tasks and the development ones as they may entail two different career tracks and job requirements. The said distinction has direct effects on the project staffing, project management and timely delivery.
To that end, in this short webinar, we will review and discuss tasks that are common among HF system admins versus developers as well as briefly reviewing available Hyperledger certifications for each career track.
Lecture: 45 minutes
Q/A: 15 minutes
