Andrew Kennedy, Senior Engineer, Cloudsoft
Andrew Kennedy is a senior engineer at Cloudsoft, and the founder of the Clocker project, where he works on application management across cloud and container ecosystems. Our HLF project is a blueprint for the Hyperledger Fabric that can be deployed using Cloudsoft AMP giving developers access to their own blockchain fabric anywhere in the cloud. This makes developers lives easier, since they can start creating new blockchain applications without having to worry about the underlying blockchain infrastructure, which is taken care of by the Hyperledger Fabric.
