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.

“It is a fantastic experience to participate in an open-source project under Hyperledger Foundation. During my mentee career in Hyperledger, the project what I worked on is “Extend secure DID Registry for Hyperledger frameworks on GitHub/Gitlab.” It aims to automate the process of creating a secure DID Registry on GitHub/Gitlab, facilitating easy on-boarding of new organizations and enabling easy management. Under my mentors’ supervision, I completed the entire design and intern workflow and created a new GitHub VCR project based on my current work. We are currently seeking opportunities to establish a Hyperledger research lab to promote the two projects.
Thank my mentors, Mr. Vinod Panicker and Mr. Arun Prakash. Their professional skills and insights have won many admirers and are indeed a great inspiration for me. Through the fantastic journey, I learned technical skills and became part of the Hyperledger community, which are both exceptionally beneficial for me. I appreciate the people I’ve met in the community. Everyone is enthusiastic about wild knowledge and willing to help others.”

“Wei has been outstanding on this project . He was quick to get into the thick of things in the project and was able to develop on the previously seeded DID Registry project ‘DIDman.’ Wei built on the concepts we came up to seed a GitHub-based VCR (Verifiable Credential Registry). Wei’s commitment and enthusiasm to make this project a success is evident in the way he was able to align his future research work also based on this project. I would like to also applaud and specifically mention Arun’s role again here for continuing to back this open source project, which we started with him being the first mentee. Arun is now shaping out as an excellent mentor. Last, but not least, I would also like to thank Hyperledger Foundation and the Mentorship program team for their continued support.”

“Last summer, I was a mentee for the same project. My continued interest in the project and tremendous support from Vinod inspired me to take the role of mentor this summer. Our mentee, Wei, was exceptional in understanding the core objectives and was able to produce outstanding architectural designs for the project. Wei has really made use of this opportunity to a greater extent as he was able to relate his current academic research with this particular project so it was quite easy for him to visualize the end product. He really improved his architectural skills and had productive hands-on experience with deployment, integration, and testing of various Hyperledger frameworks during this mentorship program.”
