Welcome to this week’s Weekend Update. We are putting this out a day early as the Linux Foundation and Hyperledger staff will be observing Juneteeth tomorrow.
Our goal with these weekly posts is to share quick updates about online education, networking and collaboration opportunities and resources for the open source enterprise blockchain community.
In celebration of Juneteenth and in support of Black Lives Matter, we are also including a list of just some of the resources we at Hyperledger are looking to for ideas and inspiration for increasing our antiracism posture and social justice advocacy:
