Weekend Update: This Week’s Round-up of Remote Blockchain Learning Resources

By Blog, Weekend Update

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 Climate Action and Accountability Special Interest Group Guest Speakers:  Tom Baumann and Henry Kim

Join the Climate Action and Accountability SIG meeting for a presentation on “Towards Ontology and Blockchain-Based Measurement, Reporting and Verification for Climate Action.” Climate action accounting, often referred to as measurement, reporting and verification (MRV), has many challenges that digital solutions can help resolve. Although blockchain in combination with IoT and other digital technologies can help to address climate data track and trace in support of climate finance and resources to support climate actions (e.g., climate-smart agriculture), there remains the basic challenge that MRV standards, and the MRV standards system itself, is fragmented and archaic. This is not only a climate issue but is a major problem of “greenwashing” claims. Therefore, digital solutions also need to be leveraged to support a nextgen MRV standards systems.

Hyperledger Telecom Special Interest Group Guest Speaker: Madhusanka Liyanage, University College Dublin, Ireland 

Dial into the Telecom SIG meeting to learn more about the role of blockchain in private 5G operators realization. 5G is a promising technology for supporting different verticals and novel applications such as Industrial Internet of Things IoT (IIoT), smart cities, autonomous vehicles, remote surgeries, virtual and augmented reality and so on. However, these verticals have a diverse set of network connectivity requirements and sometimes it is challenging to deliver customized services for each vertical by using a typical wide area 5Gnetwork. Thus, the operation of Local 5G operator (L5GO) networks or private 5G networks are considered as a viable option to tackle this challenge. However, the deployment of private 5G networks raises various issues and challenges related to the management of subscribers, roaming users, spectrum, security and also the infrastructure. This talk will cover these issues and challenges and propose possible solutions by using blockchain-based platforms.

Webinar: Blockchain Automation Framework to automatically deploy production worthy DLT networks

Setting up a DLT network in a production-scale environment is not straightforward. It is a complex and time consuming process with a huge learning curve. Therefore, when blockchain developers are asked to use an unfamiliar DLT platform, it requires a great deal of effort for even experienced technicians to properly setup the DLT network. This is especially true in large-scale production projects across heterogeneous corporate environments which require other key aspects such as security and service availability. The Blockchain Automation Framework (BAF) helps in simplifying this by providing a framework to automatically deploy by just taking a single configuration file as input. Join Accenture’s Michael Klein and Priyanka Vats for technical presentation and demo on implementing BAF for Hyperledger Fabric, Indy and Besu. 

Tune on Wednesday, December 16, at 10:00 am EDT. For more information and to register, go here.
