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.

Final Project Video
“After taking compilers and operating system classes at university, I wanted to work with something related to low-level computing. I enjoyed those subjects, and I found the mentorship as an opportunity to experience such areas. I gained knowledge of compiler optimizations and learnt to analyze the trade off between design alternatives. The mentorship also paved the way for me to create new connections and to find job openings in low-level computing.”
“I saw the Hyperledger Mentorship Program as an opportunity for someone to really make progress on an interesting idea that our work priorities don’t allow time for. I was hoping that this would make an exciting challenge and offer someone the opportunity to become familiar with Hyperledger and the Solang compiler. Lucas Steuernagel, the mentee this year, has a keen interest in compilers, and we had many interesting discussions regarding how to tackle the challenge. Lucas came up with a truly novel and innovative way to handle the task. It’s been a great success, highly enjoyable and rewarding. It has been fantastic to mentor and work with such young talent.”
