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.

“I contributed to making the carbon accounting application (a Hyperledger Lab from the Hyperledger Carbon Action SIG) more secure, stable and maintainable. To improve the security of the application, I designed and implemented offline signing of Hyperledger Fabric’s transactions with private keys stored in HashiCorp’s vault server. In order to make the application production ready, I used the Hyperledger Cactus connectors for integrating multiple blockchain. By employing test-driven development, I made the codebase more maintainable. Thanks to the guidance of all my mentors, I was able to achieve all my goals for the mentorship.
Through this mentorship, I got the opportunity to see how community driven projects are developed with contributions coming from across the globe.”

“This mentorship addressed the important issue of how to integrate emissions data stored on Hyperledger Fabric with tokens created in Ethereum. Our mentee had strong technical skills and was able to solve many complex technical challenges in making this integration work. Working on open source projects is a great way for mentees to prepare for the real world as it will give them a chance to work with other developers across different areas, figure out existing code and learn the importance of communicating well. For mentors, it’s a great way to introduce new talent into our projects and keep them moving forward.”
“Being a mentor on this project gave me unique insight into the fight against climate change and put me in touch a lot of great people who are leading the charge on the latter. Pritam, our mentee, demonstrated excellent analytical and technical skills and a true understanding of the open-source software development principles, which puts him on track to do great things in the future both within and outside of the Linux Foundation/Hyperledger.”
“Blockchain interoperability is a key topic this year with many enterprises focusing research on it. Hyperledger Cactus provides decentralized, secure and adaptable integration between blockchain networks. In this mentorship project, the main focus was on using Hyperledger Cactus for carbon accounting and carbon credit tokenization to support the blockchain-carbon-accounting project, a Hyperlegder Lab from the Climate Action SIG. Completion of this project shows that interoperability is not just a theory but can be achieved with the right design architecture and approach. Thanks to our mentee, Pritam Singh, for a wonderful job completing this project. And, in the last, thanks to my co-mentors Peter Somogyvari, Cactus Maintainer, for his support and to Si Chen for the proposing this mentorship project.”
