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.

“The Hyperledger Mentorship Program was a great opportunity for me to grow and learn from others, especially my mentors. It is a chance to realize that in a world where many pieces of information can be simply “Googled,” there is still some knowledge that can only be gained through experience, and this mentorship program was the best example of that. Also, this experience focused on many competencies and talents, such as research, collaboration and communication, which are immensely invaluable. “

“In this project, our different backgrounds came together to take us a lot further. We found out that the carbon credits and offsets market is much more complicated than originally anticipated. While many people want to use blockchains to improve the liquidity of the carbon credits market by making transactions more efficient, what the market really needs is greater trust in the quality of the credits and lower costs to bring them to market. We also learned that a successful mentorship is a partnership, where everyone—mentors and mentees—need to come prepared to both contribute and learn.”
“I really enjoyed this opportunity to mentor, and I found that I learned from the experience as much as I shared my expertise. I really enjoyed being able to share from my experience conducting market research and identifying opportunities by tapping into the knowledge of the stakeholders within it. At the same time, it was really interesting to learn more about the voluntary carbon market, which was the focus of our research, as well as the world of academic publications, which was the end goal and deliverable of our work. All in all, a very successful internship project, and I look forward to participating in more.”
