Welcome to April, #HyperledgerIdentity month, and to the second edition of Weekend Update. Our goal with this weekly post is to share quick updates about online education, networking and collaboration opportunities and resources for the enterprise blockchain community.
If you have suggestions for resources or events that we should spotlight in a future Weekend Update, let us know here.
Free Blockchain-Based Identity Classes
Since we will be putting the focus on identity this month, we want to highlight two free classes for those who want to dig deeper into the topic. Offered via EdX, Introduction to Hyperledger Sovereign Identity Blockchain Solutions: Indy, Aries & Ursa and Becoming a Hyperledger Aries Developer (LFS173) will get developers up to speed on Hyperledger tools, libraries, and reusable components for creating and using independent digital identities rooted on blockchains or other distributed ledgers. These courses are also the core curriculum for a new professional certificate program, Developing Blockchain-Based Identity Applications. (Note: the full certification program costs $358.20).
Blockchain Research Institute Webinar: Blockchain and Pandemics
On Tuesday, April 7, at 1:00pm ET, the Blockchain Research Institute will host a webinar on some of blockchain’s key applications in preventing and mitigating the impacts of global pandemics. It will share the key insights from the BRI’s March 26th roundtable discussion, which brought together over 25 world leaders in health, innovation, manufacturing, and supply chain management. The webinar is open to the public. Register here.
Free Access to ACM Digital Library
To help support research, discovery and learning in this unprecedented time, The Association for Computing Machinery is opening the ACM Digital Library to all. For the next three months, there will be no fees assessed for accessing or downloading work published by ACM. This includes ACM’s journals, proceedings and magazines.
