Deadline Friday, February 22: Call for 2019 Hyperleger Internship Projects and Mentors

Min Yu
 

Dear Hyperledger Community Members,

Hyperledger is expanding the internship program to fund 15 internship projects this year. The internship program is aimed at creating 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 into the technical community. Additional program information, including the program timeline, is available on the wiki.

This is a great contribution opportunity for community members like you to get involved. Whether you're looking for fresh ideas or perspectives, or mentoring opportunities, or additional contributors for your project, the internship program provides a pathway for you to work with aspiring student developers. 

Please submit a project proposal and volunteer yourself as a mentor; the deadline for submission is this Friday, February 22nd.     

Thank you,
Min

Hyperledger Technical Community -

Read below testimonials from former mentors. We encourage you to get involved and become a mentor for an intern this year. The deadline to submit a project proposal is Friday next week, February 22nd.

"The internship program was a great experience for my co-mentor and me. We found an intern who showed a ton of potential and was eager to learn and looking for a good first step into the real world. Though the time differences and our conflicting schedules presented us with some challenges, the end result really made everything worth it. Our intern was successful in completing her project, we got a new feature added to the fabric chaincode evm, and our intern left with skills that could help her throughout her career. The internship is a great way to bring some fresh eyes into our community but also an opportunity for those already in it to find ways to make it better." - Swetha Repakula, IBM, 2018 Mentor

"As a mentor, I find it's a wonderful experience to help the intern students to get involved into the open source projects, where they show lots of passions and self-motivations. University are the birthplace of open source, and it's always a great honor to help these fledging blockchain researchers&engineers." - Baohua Yang, Oracle, 2017 and 2018 Mentor

"Having a chance to work with someone who is both new to Hyperledger and early in their software engineering career brings new perspectives that are important. A risk of working on the same thing for too long is that you get used to the way things are and don’t stop and question why something is done in a particular way and if there may be a new or better alternative. Being a mentor requires you to both be able to explain the existing architecture and answer those “why” questions that you may have ignored otherwise." - Sheehan Anderson, State Street, 2018 Mentor

Hyperledger Technical Community:

Today, we’re excited to open the call for the 2019 internship mentors and project ideas. We’re looking to sponsor 15 internship projects this year.

The Hyperledger internship program is aimed at creating a structured hands-on learning opportunity for college students who may otherwise lack the opportunity to gain exposure to Hyperledger open source development and entry to the technical community. It also provides a more defined path for Hyperledger to connect with the next generation of student developers to inject more talent into its developer base.

If you’ve identified a project or task that’s suitable for an internship project and you’re interested in mentoring a student developer, please define the project by completing the internship project proposal template on the wiki before February 22. Additional timeline for this year’s program is as follows:
  • Call for Internship Projects and Mentors: January 28 - February 22, 2019
  • TSC Review and Approval of Internship Projects: February 22 - February 28, 2019
  • Application Period: March (and possible through April 12, 2019)
  • Application Review and Applicant Interview: April
  • Intern Acceptance: end of April
  • Intern/Mentor Introduction and Onboarding: May
  • Intern Start Date: June 3, 2019
  • Full-time Intern Completion Date: August 23, 2019 (12 consecutive weeks)
  • Part-time Intern Completion Date: November 15, 2019 (24 consecutive weeks)

A few things to note as you plan to submit a project for consideration:
  • Multiple mentors supervising one intern per project would be desirable as this helps spread the workload and reduce the challenge of coverage caused by working remotely with an intern in a different time zone.
  • The mentor(s) need to be familiar with the project and is/are expected to directly supervise the intern’s technical work.
  • The proposed project needs to be clearly scoped and structured to be suitable for an internship project.
  • The project should be related to one of the current Hyperledger frameworks or tools.
  • The mentor(s) should be ready to be the sponsor of the internship project as a Hyperleger Lab when the internship commences. This ensures that the project progress can be tracked and the project output can be publicly accessible to the community.

Interns will be eligible to receive a stipend. The stipend will be paid in several installments provided that regular interval evaluations show the intern is making satisfactory progress. Each intern who has successfully completed the program will be invited and financially sponsored by Hyperledger to attend an event/conference and present their work to the broader community (specific event TBD but will be during Q3 or Q4 of this year). 

We look forward to your submission of a project and thank you in advance for volunteering your time to contribute to the training of the new talent pool in the Hyperledger community.

Kind regards,
Min

Performance and Scale WG

Working Group

Performance and Scale Working Group (PSWG)

Working Group Health

The PSWG published the Metrics Document late last year.  This provides low level metric definitions that should apply to most DLT implementations. (Latency, throughput, etc)

The group is now going to "move up the stack" and define metrics that pertain to general use cases (verticals).  We have started to focus on supply chain and look to define basic performance and scalability measurements for that area. We reached out to the community a few weeks ago and received a lot of positive energy. Now we need to follow up. We also need to reach out specifically to project Grid and there are rumors of a Supply Chain SIG that we will also explore common areas with.

In January 2019 we also had a call with STAC. STAC is a for profit organization focused on performance in the securities and financial space.  The goal of our interaction is to see if there is some common ground between Hyperledger and STAC and look for areas of cooperation. If we (PSWG) proceed down this path, we will also need to look at the specific use cases that would pertain to the STAC members. We will also reach out to the Hyperledger Financial SIGs as appropriate.

The group has maintained a core of eight regular participants spread across the globe and across many companies and academia. The discussions remain very technical and perhaps we get too deep. We continue to reach outside of the Hyperledger community and have regular contributions and feedback on our work from this population.

Issues

If we proceed with STAC there is concern about being able to get everything done. We discussed the need to increase participants via direct recruiting or leveraging other Hyperledger activities (SIGs, projects, WGs), or drop the supply chain effort for now.  Because of this, the Supply Chain effort has been intentionally slowed a bit, which in hindsight is probably an error on my part.

Overall Activity in the Past Quarter

Due to holidays , winter breaks, and vacation schedules, meetings have been less frequent but that will change now as we get into the doldrums of February.  There was also a natural slowdown due to publishing our Metric Document.  Overall the group has been active and there have been many discussions on what to do next. We decided on defining metrics metrics for supply chain.

Planned Work Products

At this point we need to move forward with our supply chain work. This will also get more involved with other Hyperledger efforts.

We will also continue to pursue the STAC relationship. This will get us involved with the external community and help make Hyperledger visible to the STAC members. We will also work with Hyperledger activities focused in the financial and securities space.

The output of any of this work will be to define metrics that apply to the specific verticals and use cases.

Participant Diversity

This is a very active and diverse group of people from North America, Europe, and Russia. As mentioned above, we have a good mix of companies and folks from academia. From a gender diversity perspective, It is mainly male with an occasional female participant. We received positive feedback on the shout out for help with Supply Chain and should and see an increase in participation from that effort.

[confluence] Hyperledger > 2019 Q1 Hyperledger Burrow

2019 Q1 Hyperledger Burrow

Project

Project Health

Project health is largely the same as in previous update. We are have added some unique features around dump and restore (our chain reset mechanism) and we have a number of casual contributors. We still lack maintainer diversity outside of Monax. There is a steady flow of interest and we a pushing plenty of code relating to our continued heavy use of Burrow.

Issues

The biggest areas of help would be with tooling and documentation. 

Releases

  • v0.23.3: Emergency bug fix
  • v0.23.2: Fixed issue with checkpointing whereby RWTree would load its readTree from one version lower than it should.

Overall Activity in the Past Quarter

Vent has been merged into burrow. Vent dynamically creates SQL database tables from EVM events according to some specification files maintaining its offset in the chain as it goes. In addition, we can dump the chain state using a new dump tool. This state can then be provided as an initial state for a new chain. This allows us to make backwards incompatibility changes. Several backwards incompatible changes will be needed for supporting new features the like proposal mechanism. The proposal mechanism has received further fixes to make it production ready.

Current Plans

Create Q1 2019 Burrow Roadmap.

We have an active side project looking at using modern compiler tooling to compile Solidity to WASM and are interested in being part of any future movement to share code/structures through WASM execution and interfaces. To that end we are planning to look into the possibility of mounting Go wagon as a WASM interpreter next to our EVM.

We have also been building much business-process-on-a-blockchain functionality with the combination of Burrow and Blackstone our BPM engine implemented in Solidity and Node.JS. We are looking at improving Burrow's native abilities as a process-focussed blockchain. We'd like to explore the possibility of Hyperledger being host to the Blackstone project in some form - it should have relevance to fabric-evm and sawtooth-seth.

Maintainer Diversity

We have added one maintainer from Monax and have a strong candidate outside Monax in Pierrick Hymbert who has become a contributor and has expressed interest in maintainership.

Current maintainers are:

  • Greg Hill (Monax)

  • Silas Davis (Monax)

  • Sean Young (Monax)

  • Casey Kuhlman (Monax)

  • Tyler Jackson (Monax)

Contributor Diversity

We have received bug reports and pull requests from the Fabric team.  There have been several

Re: Leaving The Linux Foundation

Dan Hyperledger
 

Tracy, 


I hope that your next project appreciates their gain even half as much as we will feel the loss. You have been seemingly everywhere at once, helping resolve deep problems for long time maintainers while personally assisting countless first time users / developers. 

I’m heartened to see that you will continue to shepherd labs work and I'm glad that we will still have you engaged albeit in a different manner.


Best,
Dan
