The Hyperledger India Chapter Student Society is an association for students and faculty members around the country who are researching, working, or are interested in blockchain and Hyperledger distributed ledger technologies. The Society works in accordance with the code of conduct issued by the Linux Foundation and Hyperledger and hosts bi-weekly meetings open to the public. The Society aims to provide a platform where students can engage with their peers to educate, co-create, and network all over the nation and bring about the next industrial revolution with blockchain and Hyperledger DLT technologies. Students volunteer, take up initiatives, and organize events relevant to their area of interest. The Society also tries to enhance leadership, teamwork, and professional conduct among students by allowing them to take charge.
Faculty members can volunteer as co-leads of the Society to share responsibilities for the activities and events to be organized. Faculty members can be part of the Society and act as mentors to encourage and motivate students to take up initiatives. They may also promote student projects, collaborate with industry professionals, and identify internship and placement opportunities.
The Society maintains channels on Discord and LinkedIn to connect and bring together interested students and mentors from the community. The LinkedIn page acts as a source for important announcements and events while Discord serves as a casual space where members can exchange and express their opinions, ideas, or even topics they are interested in. The Society also lists resources to learn and improve student’s blockchain skills and even posts must-read articles every week on Discord.
Bi-weekly meetings are conducted to discuss and keep up to date with recent trends in blockchain technology. Several segments, like Pitch your Project (PYP), where students are provided an open stage to pitch their ideas in front of others, and Blockchain for the Week, where a couple of recent developments and news within the blockchain space are discussed to keep track of the current trends in the blockchain space, are also part of the bi-weekly session.
Planning is also underway for additional programs such as Research Paper discussions and a study circle for Hyperledger Fabric. (See details on the study circle below.)
The Hyperledger India Chapter Student Society relies entirely on student and faculty participation and enthusiasm and encourages members to learn with others and inculcate a sense of learning in public.
