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.

“Throughout this great experience, I’ve learned how to write cleaner code and develop in a test-driven fashion. Moreover, I learned the concept of blockchain interoperability and developed a standardized way to create atomic cross-chain transactions. Furthermore, I found that the Hyperledger open source community is quite friendly and people there are always willing to help. So do not hesitate to ask your questions! Lastly, big thanks to all my mentors. I would not be able to accomplish things without them.”
“Being a mentor on this project exposed me to academic paper collaboration as well as the implementation work itself. It provided me with an expanded view of possibilities for future collaborations, and I am lucky to have been a participant.
This project has also given me more information about how people interact with Hyperledger Cactus when they are new to it. This is very valuable for me as a Hyperledger Cactus maintainer given that our top priority is to grow the open source software community around the project.
Jason did an excellent job, and I hope to work with him again in the future.”
“In this mentorship, we took a research-oriented approach to help to solve cross-jurisdiction asset transfers by building on top of Hyperledger Cactus. Jason, our mentee, excelled at understanding and implementing a real-world protocol that aims to solve such problem, the Open Digital Asset Protocol – a protocol being discussed at the Internet Engineering Task Force. This way, Jason directly contributed to the state of the art of blockchain interoperability.”
