Join Hyperledger NYC on the last evening of Consensus to get a chance to network and hear directly from developers of several Hyperledger frameworks! Tracy Kuhrt, Community Architect at Hyperledger, will provide an overview of the frameworks and tools you can leverage for your enterprise blockchain solution. Then breakout sessions will give you the opportunity to have a deeper discussion to learn more about Fabric, Sawtooth (Seth), Indy and more.

At Evernym, he works on the development of the Sovrin Network who is the primary consumer of Hyperledger Indy. Born in Des Moines, Iowa, Den Hartog graduated from the University of Iowa majoring in Computer Science in 2017. Here he began researching blockchains, digital ledger technologies, and identity systems. His passion to eliminate passwords as the primary form of authentication has led him to be a contributor to the design and development of DID-Auth as well as other standards in the decentralized identity community. At only 23 years of age, Den Hartog is already making a name for himself as an experienced engineer working on self-sovereign identity systems.
