Hyperledger: Fabric + Composer setup
This week we continue our journey of building Blockchain solutions using the Hyperledger toolset. To best understand the Hyperledger toolset, we will build a prototype using Fabric, Composer, and Explorer. We will begin by installing all the software components and testing connections. Bring your laptop and we will assist you with any issues you have during setup and testing.
The Linux Foundation sponsors a portfolio of free, open source Blockchains and tools, called "Hyperledger". Major tech companies around the world (IBM, Intel, Samsung, etc) donate code to the Hyperledger Project and actively develop new versions. This portfolio consists of 5 different Blockchains to choose from and sophisticated tools including:
- Composer : building rapid prototypes
- Cello : deploying your prototypes in the cloud
- Explorer : view your blockchain through a web page
- Quilt : moving assets and data between Blockchains
Some setup guides and quick-startup scripts will be provided during the meetup.
Hyperledger is an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. It is a global collaboration, hosted by The Linux Foundation, including leaders in finance, banking, Internet of Things, supply chains, manufacturing and Technology. Hyperledger Meetup groups have an informal relationship with Hyperledger, and make up a key part of the Hyperledger ecosystem. Participation in a Hyperledger Meetup group is open to anyone--employees of a Hyperledger member company, Hyperledger contributors and developers, and people just passionate about blockchain technology.
