Get started with Hyperledger Aries: Accelerate your decentralized identity skills with a free instructor-led Workshop

Hyperledger Aries is one of the fastest growing open source projects propelling the advancement and adoption of decentralized identity and verifiable credentials out there today. More companies than ever are deploying Aries-based agents that allow for trusted online peer-to-peer interactions.

Hyperledger Foundation has partnered with member company Indicio and its team of deeply experienced developers and architects to develop a free workshop to help developers and architects gain a deeper understanding of decentralized identity and become familiar with the technologies that are made possible by using Hyperledger Aries. 

This four-hour hands-on workshop provides beginner level opportunities to install and run the Hyperledger Aries components just like you would if you were making a real Aries-based application. Learn where to find the necessary Git repos and see how to use the Indy Command Line Interface (Indy CLI), and run the Aries toolbox to create and issue a verifiable credential.

This course also introduces some current projects using Hyperledger Aries to help you accelerate your understanding of decentralized identity and build the skills necessary to successfully make changes to the underlying code with hands-on guidance to develop your own projects.
