Welcome to the Weekend Update. Our goal with this weekly post is to share quick updates about online education, networking and collaboration opportunities and resources for the open source enterprise blockchain community.
If you have suggestions for resources or events that we should spotlight in a future Weekend Update, let us know here using #HLWeekendUpdate.

Hyperledger Climate Action & Accounting Special Interest Group Guest Presentation: IoT and blockchain to facilitate the scaling of green technologies in rural communities
Join the Climate Action & Accounting SIG meeting for a guest presentation on “IoT and blockchain to facilitate the scaling of green technologies in rural communities.” Veronica Garcia-Heller, CEO of Bitlumens, will discuss scaling of renewable technologies using a last generation smart meter and the blockchain. Bitlumens does this by working with PV mini grids in rural areas with intermittent or no access to electricity. The main market is India because the digitalization of the energy sector is happening fast and is being backed by the government. This provides a good test ground for the application of carbon budgeting and trading.
For more information on the meeting, which is Tuesday, June 15, at 8:00 AM PDT, go here.
“Breaking the Silos” event
Leaders from across Hyperledger Special Interest Groups (SIGs), Working Groups and regional chapters are calling to break the silos between Hyperledger communities. The aim is to encourage intentional collaboration, combining thoughts, ideas and effort in a concerted way to address large-scale real world problems.
The kick-off to this effort will be June 15 at 5:00 pm BST at this online event.
Participate in the 2021 Open Source Jobs Report
The Linux Foundation and edX are collecting input for the next iteration of the Open Source Jobs Report. The report examines the latest trends in open source careers, which skills are in demand, what motivates open source job seekers, and how employers can attract and retain top talent. This year’s report will also examine the effects of the ongoing pandemic on the industry. The report is anchored by two surveys, one of which explores what hiring managers are looking for in employees, and one focused on what motivates open source professionals. Ten respondents to each survey (twenty in total) will be randomly selected to receive a US$150 gift card to the new Linux Foundation online store as a thank you for participating.
