Hyperledger (or the Hyperledger project) is an umbrella project of open source blockchains and related tools.
The project was founded by the Linux Foundation at the end of 2015 with the intention of encouraging the collaborative development of blockchain-based distributed ledgers.
In a play to help developers learn how to use this technology, the Linux Foundation has now announced the LFD271 – Hyperledger Fabric Fundamentals training course.
Additionally, Certified Hyperledger Fabric Administrator and Certified Hyperledger Sawtooth Administrator exams will be released later in 2018.
“Blockchain technology adoption is increasing at a rapid pace [media reports suggest that] blockchain jobs are the second-fastest growing in today’s labour market – leading to a shortage of professionals who are qualified to implement and manage it on an enterprise scale,” said Linux Foundation general manager for training & certification Clyde Seepersad.
Seepersad says that after seeing more than 100,000 students take the foundation’s free introductory Hyperledger course, they knew it was time for more advanced training options and certification exams to demonstrate the extent of professionals’ knowledge.
The Hyperledger Fabric Fundamentals course introduces the fundamental concepts of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies, as well as the core architecture and components that make up typical decentralised Hyperledger Fabric applications.
The course is designed for application developers to learn how business logic is implemented in Hyperledger Fabric through chaincode (Hyperledger Fabric’s smart contracts) and review the various transaction types used to read from and write to the distributed ledger.
