Changes to Hyperledger-hosted Zoom meetings

Ry Jones
 

On September 27 Zoom is implementing a mandatory functionality change. Zoom will now enforce all meetings to have either a passcode or a waiting room. If no passcode is enabled, attendees will automatically be placed into a waiting room and the meeting hosts will need to add the attendees to the meeting manually.

 

You should be looking for updated meeting invites from lists.hyperledger.org that contain an embedded passcode as part of the zoom meeting URL. These notices will be tagged with #cal-invite.

 

Please be sure to sync your calendars if the updates are not reflected on your calendar tools. You can always subscribe to the calendar feed to stay up to date with any meeting changes by following the instructions below:

 

Opt into a Hyperledger subgroup mailing list (if you wish to receive calendar updates and subscribe to calendar feed) 

  • Log into https://lists.hyperledger.org/g/main

  • Click on Subgroups to the left and this will display the list of available subgroups for Hyperledger 

  • Navigate to the subgroup of your choice

  • Click +Join This Group toward the near bottom of the page and this will add you to the group.

Subscribe to a meeting calendar

  • Login to lists.hyperledger.org for the specific Hyperledger list you are interested in

  • For example, click the "Your Calendar" icon on the left: https://lists.hyperledger.org/g/tsc/calendar

  • Scroll to the bottom of the page

  • Click the "Subscribe to Calendar" button

  • copy the URL that is generated

  • Paste the URL using whatever method your calendar reader uses for internet calendar subscriptions

All Hyperledger public meetings can also be viewed on the wiki.

Introducing Hyperledger Project & How-to Webinars

Marta Piekarska <mpiekarska@...>
 

Hello, 
To make sure that the broader community is up to date with latest the Hyperledger project developments and features, we would like to offer two main webinar opportunities:

1. Project Webinar - 1h long webinar on major releases and description of new functionality, ideally with demos. (max two/year)
2. Project How-To - 30 min, hands-on demos and how-tos. (max two/year + unlimited offline recordings)

Each project is limited to two webinars a year, so be sure to save it for major releases.  Project How-To's are supposed to be virtual demos, or short training sessions. Every submission should be sponsored by a maintainer: we want those to be aligned with the rest of the community, so at least one maintainer should sign off on the presentation.

The webinars take place every first and third Wednesday at 3pm GMT/7am PST. 

If you are interested, please contact marketing@....


Have a great day

Re: 2020 Q1 Hyperledger Burrow

Silas Davis
 

Us too :) It's been a long time coming and it won't happen overnight but we want people to be able to run zones on Burrow. If anyone wants to see this happen sooner and maybe compete in https://cosmos.network/goz/. We would welcome additional hands.

It is with the utmost of pleasure that I bring you this quarter's update. It's been a quiet few months, but we are still digging away, and as you can see from our roadmap we are more ambitious than ever this year!

To align ourselves with the value proposition brought forth by Solang, we intend to fully support eWASM in all of its might. We are also going to make numerous security enhancements to the core protocol, in particular we plan to remove 'mempool signing' so validators will not sign transactions by default. Finally, as the interchain specification solidifies, we are committed to integrating the necessary components that will bridge Hyperledger with Tendermint/Cosmos.

Stay tuned for more updates!

Have you registered for Hyperledger Global Forum, March 3-6?

Brian Behlendorf <bbehlendorf@...>
 

Hello Hyperledger Community,


Less than four weeks to go until Hyperledger Global Forum 2020! I am so excited to see not only long time friends but all the new people, projects, deployments, and energy in our community. We've grown so much even just since the last Forum in Basel just over a year ago. This time no one needs to bundle up in scarves and mittens, as Arizona in springtime is gorgeous.


As digitally connected as our community is, in-person meetings like this are essential to developing a healthy Open Source software community. Community itself is an inherent part of blockchain technology - our ledger platforms are operating systems for cooperative networks. Whether you're a developer or product manager or business-level decision-maker, if you want to better understand the full scope of what everyone in the Hyperledger Greenhouse are building and deploying, and where the enterprise blockchain movement is going, you want to be here!


I wanted to make sure that you do not miss out on standard pricing, which ends on February 18. Save up to $400 if you register by the deadline. Hotel rooms will most likely sell out in advance - I encourage you to book ASAP to secure a room at the conference rate, which was just extended through Friday, Feb 14.


At Global Forum, you will have the chance to talk directly with Hyperledger project maintainers and the Technical Steering Committee, collaborate with other developers and executives on ideas that will directly impact the future of Hyperledger. Plus you get to promote your work among the enterprise blockchain community.


This year’s agenda will feature more than 80 sessions, including dozens of breakout sessions plus panels, workshops and a Demo Theater. You can search the agenda and also browse by filter type including industry, project focus. There’s some really great technical sessions/workshops lined up that I would like to highlight:



Going into Production! Performance Best Practices in Hyperledger Fabric - Alfonso De la Rocha Gómez-Arevalillo, Telefónica

Hyperledger Fabric is getting traction in the corporate world, with more and more companies deploying Fabric-based projects and PoCs. One of the main limitations Telefonica’s found is getting a PoC into production because of a lack of performance best practices. In this talk Alfonso will answer common performance questions such as: What configurations should I fine-tune to get the most out of my infrastructure? And How many peers, endorsers and ordering nodes do I need?


Governing DLT Networks - David Treat, Accenture & Rob Palatnick, DTCC

Accenture and DTCC have co-authored a paper, Governing DLT Networks, and will present their work with David Treat, MD, Global Blockchain Lead at Accenture and member of the Hyperledger Board and Rob Palatnick, CTO of DTCC and Chair of the Hyperledger Board. Proposing a governance operating model to address approaches to managing the activity, connectivity, software changes, contractual agreements and transaction finality for every participant across the network.


Blockchain Platform For A Billion Customers: A Telecom (Digital Marketing) Case Study - Babu Jayaraj, Reliance Jio Infocom Ltd.

India with 1.2+ Billion registered mobile subscribers have been plagued with unsolicited communications from the unregistered telemarketers. A consortium of telecom operators under the TRAI's guidance have built a Blockchain based platform to regulate marketing communications. This talk is about learnings/experiences in designing and building the Hyperledger Fabric based platform by consortium of telecom operators including choosing right technologies, overcoming platform stability issues, scaling performance and building business practices/process around the new platform.


Building Secure Protocols Using Ursa- Mike Lodder, Sovrin Foundation & Brent Zundel, Evernym

It's notoriously difficult to properly implement blockchain protocols that use cryptographic algorithms.In this talk, Mike and Brent will explain some of the features in Hyperledger Ursa and how to use them to solve some of the most common problems faced by people looking to build private and secure protocols on blockchains.


A Standardized Approach to Creating Digital Tokens - Paul DiMarzio, Enterprise Ethereum Alliance; Marley Gray, Microsoft & Jonathan Levi, HACERA

In this session, the speakers will lay out the value of digital tokens and dive into a few examples of how the Token Taxonomy Framework (TTF) can be used to simplify the design and implementation of new token classes.

DIDs without blockchains - Daniel Hardman, Evernym,

Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs) are like DNS without any registrars. They're a foundation of decentralized identity, and are relevant to most Hyperledger projects. In this session, Daniel will explain how peer DIDs work, and show developers how they can get support for them in an hour or a day (depending on their circumstances).


Panel: Business Interoperability – The Key to Supply Chain Traceability - Rich Meszaros & Sarah Banks, Accenture; Melanie Nuce, GS1 US; David Cecchi, Cargill

Technology such as blockchain has the power to solve complex challenges and achieve improved supply chain traceability. In order to tap into this powerful technology, interoperability, enabled by robust data and transaction standards, are a must! Segments of the supply chain, such as the food industry, have made significant progress leveraging data standards to support food safety and product transparency use cases.

Workshop: Intro to Hyperledger Besu - Danno Ferrin, ConsenSys

There is no better way to learn about Hyperledger Besu than by doing.In this session attendees will set up and run Hyperledger Besu nodes that connect to public networks as well as start their own permissioned network between the other attendees in the session.


Workshop: Hyperledger Fabric 101 - Swetha Repakula & Morgan Bauer, IBM

The workshop will involve participants standing up their own Hyperledger Fabric network, deploying smart contracts, and interacting with their contracts using decentralized applications. Attendees will leave the tutorial with a better understanding of the properties of permissioned blockchains, and decentralized application development. Recently announced Hyperledger Fabric 2.0 features and updates will also be explored.


Workshop: Hands-on Experience with Avalon on How to Bridge On-chain and Off-chain Worlds - Yevgeniy Yarmosh & Dan Anderson, Intel

Avalon addresses blockchain scalability and privacy challenges by moving compute intensive and private data processing off-chain. Other similar approaches typically trade resilience and integrity for scalability and privacy. During this workshop, you will understand Avalon architecture and how it extends a notion of computational trust.


Workshop: Getting Started with Indy and Aries: Beginner and Advanced Scenarios - Stephen Curran, Cloud Compass Computing, Inc. & John Jordan, Government of British Columbia (Canada),

This full day technical workshop will cover beginner and advanced sessions on getting started with Hyperledger Indy and Hyperledger Aries.

Keynote speakers confirmed so far:

Keynote: Don Tapscott: The Blockchain Revolution -State of the Union, Co-author, Blockchain Revolution: How the Technology Behind Bitcoin and Other Cryptocurrencies is Changing the World, and Co-founder, Blockchain Research Institute

Keynote: Sheila Warren: Blockchain Matters: How it’s Already Changing the World, Head of Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology, World Economic Forum

We've been quiet too long dear marmots.

But still rodents run deep. Here's what Burrow is about in 2019:



If you'd like to find out more drop us a question in https://chat.hyperledger.org/channel/burrow or on list.

Re: Blocktwine industrial hemp project

Silas Davis
 

Hello (I'll take a guess based off your website) John ?

It's wonderful to hear from you and hear of an actual, no bullshit, wearable use case.

I'm a Burrow maintainer and the CTO of https://monax.io/. Monax runs it legal agreement platform atop https://agreements.network/ in production on Burrow. So far our experiences with this system in production is what most drives the roadmap for Burrow, but it would be excellent news to have another use case to create more balanced design tension - and indeed contributions are very welcome.

I've taken a look at your repo and watched the video. It sounds interesting and a legitimate use case for the technology. Even better that it appears to be a problem looking for a solution rather than the converse which can be rare.

I am extremely keen to do whatever I can to support another company taking Burrow into production, as such, within the constraints of my day job I'd love to provide whatever support you need along with other maintainers from Monax and consider your needs in our roadmap. We also have plenty of knowledge about operating validator pools in kubernetes, blue-green upgrade deployments, etc, and we would be very happy to share these. A lot of the raw materials are public, but putting it together without help might be challenging.

Please drop by to https://chat.hyperledger.org/channel/burrow and introduce yourself and we'll take if from there.

Silas

p.s. I plan to get a roundup for Burrow features and progress posted here next week for Burrow's quarterly review I've been too quiet for too long.

Blocktwine industrial hemp project

Object Syndicate
 

Hello,

I am honored to announce Blocktwine,
an industrial hemp smart contract engine
and a non-profit organization.


We are currently looking for interested blockchain engineers to help with the project.
The way things are looking Burrow will be the project we try first. I wanted to reach out to the burrow community and express my gratitude for such a great piece of software.

Thank you for any time spent looking at the idea.
I am very open to feedback and criticism to make this a reality.
