Blockchain with Hyperledger

Course number: CGIBH40

Blockchain and Hyperledger technologies are hot topics today. Hyperledger Fabric and Hyperledger Composer are open source projects that help organizations create private, permissioned blockchain networks. These find application in finance, banking, supply chain, and IoT, along with several other sectors. This course will teach you to explore and build blockchain networks using Hyperledger technologies.

The course starts by outlining the evolution of blockchain, including an overview of relevant blockchain technologies. You will learn how to configure Hyperledger Fabric and become familiar with its architectural components. Using these components, you will learn to build private blockchain networks, along with the applications that connect to them. Starting from principles first, you’ll learn to design and launch a network, implement smart contracts in chaincode and much more.

By the end of this course, you will be able to build and deploy your own decentralized applications, handling the key pain points encountered in the blockchain life cycle.
