Welcome to the Weekend Update. Our goal with this weekly post is to share quick updates about online education, networking and collaboration opportunities and resources for the open source enterprise blockchain community.
If you have suggestions for resources or events that we should spotlight in a future Weekend Update, let us know here using #HLWeekendUpdate.
Hyperledger Media and Entertainment Special Interest Group Guest Presentation: An Introduction to Minifabric
Join the Media and Entertainment SIG for a guest presentation by IBM’s Tong Li on Minifabric, a Hyperledger Lab. Hyperledger Fabric is the clear leader in permission based blockchain frameworks. It has become the de facto standard for enterprise blockchain platforms. Its performance and data privacy capabilities are second to none in the very crowded blockchain fields. However, its powerful capabilities come with some challenges in its deployments, implementations and understanding, especially for those who are used to other blockchain systems such as Bitcoin and Ethereum.
It does not have to be that way. With the right tooling, one can easily deploy Fabric networks, learn how Fabric works, understand the life cycles of Fabric artifacts and become an expert as a Fabric network administrator or chaincode developer. Minifabric allows users to easily setup a Fabric network, expand the network, install and upgrade their own chaincode, invoke transactions, inspect the ledger, and change configurations of their channel. This presentation will explain how to go through these tasks using Minifabric to develop valuable skills and a complete understanding of Hyperledger Fabric.

Hyperledger In-depth: An hour with SIMBA Chain
Blockchains have been around for more than ten years, and, since 2015, a plethora of systems have been launched to target more flexible use cases. More recently, several enterprise blockchain systems, such as Consensys Quorum and Hyperledger Fabric, have been launched to make blockchain simpler to apply in complex organizational configurations. In this discussion on “Connecting Supplier and DoD Blockchains for Transparent Part Tracking,” Joel Neidig and Anjon Roy of SIMBA Chain will identify a specific Department of Defense use case, extrapolate requirements, and perform a thorough assessment of the different layers of the blockchain stack to identify the existing state of the art and undertake a gap analysis of the technology for this context. They will describe a platform that meets many of these challenges and show how they architected, designed, and implemented a solution for this use case for deployment at NAVAIR connecting transactions from two separate blockchain systems, Consensys Quorum and Hyperledger Fabric, and use a graph-based approach that preserves privacy while enabling full transparency across the military and supplier networks.
Tune on Wednesday, July 28, at 10:00 AM PDT. For more information and to register, go here.
