The Hyperledger Mentorship Program is a structured hands-on learning opportunity for new developers who may otherwise lack the opportunity to gain exposure to Hyperledger open source development and entry to the technical community. These Mentorship Spotlights highlight the work done by the Mentors and the Mentees as part of their program participation. Learn more here.
Mentorship Project Title
Support Clique Consensus for Besu on Blockchain Automation Framework
To support the Clique consensus for Hyperledger Besu so that BAF can be used to deploy and operate a Hyperledger Besu network with Clique consensus. This will also include upgrading BAF to support the latest stable Besu version.

“This Mentorship program gave me real-world software engineering experience. I’ve learned to dig and work on a large codebase. Write production-ready code. Figure out the specific code files and documentation that is required to complete the specific task. Regular mentor meetings and discussions helped me to plan my way and complete all the tasks on time. I am thankful to my mentor for understanding my capabilities and mentoring me throughout the program. Also, I’m thankful to the entire Hperledger community for such an amazing program. Open source is interesting, and I would like to be part of it even after the mentorship program.”
“Learner is one of my top strengths, and I also like to share the knowledge with other people. That is why I joined this program as a mentor. Also, I wanted to have more people contributing to open-source projects. The main highlight was when my mentee completed all the tasks and was able to deploy a Besu network. The most significant growth for my mentee was his ability to spin up a Cloud environment and then execute Ansible on the server. Lessons learned for me were to be patient and to explore multiple options of the execution environment. The most rewarding part of this experience is the knowledge that there is at least one additional person who will now contribute to the betterment of an open-source code.”
