The Linux Foundation partnered with HACERA to create the world’s first vendor agnostic Hyperledger Fabric Fundamentals class

WE ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THAT OUR HYPERLEDGER FABRIC FUNDAMENTALS TRAINING COURSE IS LIVE AND IS SET TO EXPAND ACCESSIBILITY OF BLOCKCHAIN EDUCATION

SAN FRANCISCO, September 5, 2018The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, today announced enrollment is now open for the new LFD271 – Hyperledger Fabric Fundamentals training course. Additionally, Certified Hyperledger Fabric Administrator and Certified Hyperledger Sawtooth Administrator exams will be released later in the year. A Professional Certificate Program – Blockchain for Business – was launched earlier this year on edX along with a free course entitled Blockchain: Understanding Its Uses and Implications.

LFD271 – Hyperledger Fabric Fundamentals

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 decentralized Hyperledger Fabric applications. Students will work with Hyperledger Fabric, Hyperledger Fabric Certificate Authority and the Hyperledger Fabric SDK. In addition to the reading material, the two day, self-paced course includes a set of hands-on lab exercises that guide students towards setting up a Hyperledger Fabric business network and through the various stages in the lifecycle of a decentralized Hyperledger Fabric-based application.

LFD271 is designed for developers and application developers. Developers will 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. Application developers will be shown how their applications can invoke transactions using the Hyperledger Fabric JavaScript SDK.

The course instructor, Jonathan Levi, is a hands-on computer scientist, applied cryptographer and mathematician, as well as the founder of HACERA, the blockchain technology company. He is one of the early contributors to Hyperledger Fabric, helped shape the Membership Services (the permissioning layer of Hyperledger Fabric) and was the official release manager of Hyperledger Fabric 1.0. He has built several large-scale mission critical systems that had to be highly available, secure and fault-tolerant. Over the last five years, Jonathan has worked with several blockchain technology stacks – from Bitcoin to building the first Ethereum class with Professor Dan Boneh at Stanford University.
