Hyperledger In-depth: An hour with KrypC
The first Hyperledger Fabric major release since v1.0, Fabric v2.0 delivers important new features and changes for users and operators alike, including support for new application and privacy patterns, enhanced governance around smart contracts, and new options for operating nodes. Hyperledger Fabric v2.0 introduces decentralized governance for smart contracts, with a new process for installing a chaincode on your peers and starting it on a channel. The new Fabric chaincode lifecycle allows multiple organizations to come to agreement on the parameters of a chaincode, such as the chaincode endorsement policy, before it can be used to interact with the ledger.
In this discussion on “Best practices and major obstacles for upgrading to Hyperledger Fabric Version 2.2,” Chris Smith of KrypC will share his team’s experience updating their customer’s Hyperledger Fabric infrastructure to version 2.2 as well as some of the obstacles their customers faced and how KrypC navigated these obstacles to ensure a successful update.
Tune on Wednesday, August 4, at 9:00 AM PDT. For more information and to register, go here.
