My Hyperledger Foundation mentorship project, which focused on Hyperledger Cello, gave me the opportunity to work on the development of an operational dashboard for deployed blockchains. Our goal was to make it easier for users to create, manage, and use blockchains, and to reduce the difficulty and complexity of these tasks.
Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize a wide range of industries, from finance and healthcare to supply chain management and beyond. However, for many users, the complexity of blockchain systems can be a barrier to entry. Hyperledger Cello aims to change that by developing an easy-to-use operational dashboard that allows users to manage their blockchain networks more flexibly and safely.
What did you learn or accomplish?
During my time on the project, I was fortunate to have Baohua Yang and Yang Feng as my mentors. Under their supervision, I implemented the backend APIs for node operations in the blockchain network using Django and also developed the frontend UI for channel and node operations. In addition to these technical contributions, I also became familiar with the Hyperledger Cello deployment using Docker through editing, enriching, and fixing the current project documentation. These efforts will help to make Hyperledger Cello more user friendly and easier to use.
In addition to the technical skills I gained during my work on Hyperledger Cello, I also had the chance to learn more about the broader context of blockchain technology and its potential to solve real-world problems. I was able to see firsthand the benefits of a decentralized, transparent, and secure system for storing and sharing data, and I am excited to continue exploring the possibilities of this technology.
What comes next?
Looking ahead, I plan to continue contributing to Hyperledger Cello and to learn as much as I can about blockchain technology. I am also interested in finding a job that is related to cryptocurrency and blockchain, where I can use my skills and knowledge to make a positive impact. Hyperledger Cello is making great progress, and I am proud to be a part of the project. I am looking forward to seeing what the future holds for this exciting technology and its potential to transform industries and solve complex problems.
