Deck: Getting Involved With Hyperledger

Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:

  • Hyperledger Foundation: hosts open source enterprise blockchains projects, from DLTs to tools
  • Most relevant to IIW, we host Hyperledger Indy, Aries and Ursa
    • We also host Hypereldger Besu, Fabric, Sawtooth, FireFly, Caliper and others
  • Hyperledger Foundation is part of the Linux Foundation
  • All of our code is Apache2 licensed, free for anyone to take and use
  • The projects are powered by contributors, maintainers and members. Anyone can contribute to a project and contributions are welcome.
  • Hyperledger has a steering committee which drives the technical direction of the entire org
  • Within each project, the maintainers/contributors are responsible for project health, determining direction and roadmap
  • Many projects have a “good first ticket” in GitHub
