**Charlotte Hyperledger Meetup is proudly promoting this event on behalf of our partners and friends at Sovrin, Evernym, LaunchLKN and BlockchainCLT. **

Your future is calling and it has a name. It is called Decentralization. If you like to code and feel like “Saving the World” at the same time earn more $$$ than any equivalent software programmer on the planet… you should attend this free software developer workshop and learn to code apps on the leading decentralized, global public utility for digital identity.

Today is a great time to be alive as a coder or entrepreneur in today’s emerging technology landscape. Machine Learning and Crypto are in high demand for a reason. They are the “new layers” of computing. If you have any doubts, watch this recent presentation by one of my favorite, famous technologists, now venture capitalist, Benedict Evans. The End of The Beginning. (https://youtu.be/RF5VIwDYIJk ) In particular watch the last 5 minutes if you don’t have time for the entire 24 minutes.

Still wondering if a career in blockchain as a DLT engineer is for you? Curious what skills do you need to jump into this emerging market that will design and define how the NEXT Internet - Web 3.0 is constructed? Do you think you got what it takes to learn a new smart contract platform development language like Solidity on Ethereum or Chaincode on Hyperledger to build the scaffolding of new global computer system based on trust, transparency and accountability? You do and that future starts with Blockchain Identity.

Digital identity is the foundational building block for all crypto networks, products and services. Self-sovereign identity is a great FIRST leap to take down the crypto rabbit hole, as a coder or entrepreneur. Learning to build decentralized apps on a decentralized identity blockchain network, that is already built, is like hitting the easy button in your crypto coding education. Skip ahead and start building decentralized apps that matter on Sovrin.

What is Sovrin?

•The Sovrin Network is a decentralized, global public utility for digital identity.

•Using applications developed to run on Sovrin – people, organizations and things may create and manage their own portable self-sovereign digital identities.

•The Sovrin Foundation is a nonprofit organization established to administer the Governance Framework for the Sovirn Network and support the day-to-day operations of the Network.

•Sovrin Stewards are a group of trusted entities from diverse backgrounds operating validator nodes that run the network.

If you do decide to register for one of the limited Sovrin developer seats or decide to circle back another time, please don’t forget to attend the Blockchain Identity 101 Primer WEBINAR on November 26, 2018 @ 12pm ET. This is a primer to the Sovrin developer workshops.

There will be food and drinks. Look for more details as the dates get closer. December 4th and December 5th we will host two events just for developer training.
