A quick reminder that the Hyperledger Mentorship Program is currently accepting mentors and project proposals.  Here are some reasons to consider putting yourself forward as a mentor and formally participate in this year's program:
  • You believe in the value of mentorship in helping new developers to navigate open source development, the culture, the tooling and infrastructure to be a productive member of the community.  
  • You are passionate about teaching and guiding student developers, many of whom may be first time open-source contributors.
  • You are eager to bring in new perspectives, new ideas, and new talent into your community and projects.
  • You have a narrowly scoped development project with clear learning objectives/outcomes. You believe that the potential contributions of the mentee's work through completing this mentorship project could add value to the larger project or the Hyperlegder community of which you're an active developer or maintainer.
When ready, simply login to our wiki and submit a project proposal that you will be mentoring here: https://wiki.hyperledger.org/display/INTERN/Mentorship+Projects

Hyperledger Technical Community -

Today, we’re excited to open the call for mentors and project proposals for the 2020 Hyperleger Mentorship Program

Last year, the Hyperledger Mentorship Program connected 25 mentors and 17 mentees from around the globe to contribute their enthusiasm, time, and experience toward building a sustainable Hyperledger community. You can learn more about the growth of this program and 2019 mentees' work and contributions by reading our blog posts:
If you would like to volunteer your time to teach and mentor while sharing your passion for the blockchain technology with the next generation of blockchain developers in a structured program like ours, we invite you to get involved: 
While mentors will be on a voluntary basis, the hired mentees will be eligible to receive a stipend. The stipend will be paid in several installments provided that regular interval evaluations show the mentee is making satisfactory progress. Each mentee 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 or Q1 of the following year). 

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

Getting Started

Cedric MOUDZE TATSUM
 

Hi All,
I'm a young and technology passionate entrepreneur from Cameroon who specialized in computer sciences especially for networks, systems and cloud computing architectures. He's also focusing on how to revolutionize our local perceptions of what is technology by teaching, empowering young students, professionals and another startups fellow on focused training and 21st century skills. Also an IT Technical Specialist and ICT Innovative in Education with almost five years of experience in the field and the founder of NAMSOFT. Earlier this year i started to focus on blockchain ecosystem and how it could help us to improve our business ecosystem...that led me on Hyperledger.

With the participation of David and Marta, we were able to setup an Hyperledger Community in Cameroon and organized our first meetup. After that, we sen our community grow and more more we are welcoming students who want to know more about the blockchain and how to implement it.

I come here to know how to setup an Hyperledger Community within a university, how long it will take from us and especially what are the requirements to do that

Thanks

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

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).

24-26.06.2019 - Conference

The conference solicits manuscripts in the following 4 categories:

Full research papers which represent significant and novel research contributions. Submissions must not overlap with works that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Submissions should follow the IEEE Conference Proceedings Format format and should not exceed 10 pages, excluding references and well-marked appendices. There is no limit on the length of the references and appendices. Accepted papers will appear in the IEEE proceedings published by IEEE. Authors who seek to submit their works to journals may opt-out by publishing an extended abstract only.

Short research papers which may (for example) summarize works-in-progress or extensions to previous research papers. Short research papers must meet the above criteria, except must be 4 pages or less including references and appendices.

Systematization-of-Knowledge papers which present a systematization of the current literature on a specific topic. In line with the definition used by IEEE Security and Privacy, SoK papers must “provide an important new viewpoint on an established, major research area, support or challenge long-held beliefs in such an area with compelling evidence, or present a convincing, comprehensive new taxonomy of such an area. Survey papers without such insights are not appropriate.”

Position papers advance a novel viewpoint or opinion on the field that is not an original research contribution. Position papers should not exceed 6 pages in length, including any references and appendices.

All submissions will be reviewed double-blind, and as such should not contain author names, must be anonymous, no acknowledgments, affiliations, or obvious references. Accepted papers from the first edition are available under https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/xpl/mostRecentIssue.jsp?punumber=8525353.

Hyperledger Undergraduate and Postgraduate student

Robin Andre Nordnes <16075163@...>
 

Dear representative(s) of Hyperledger,

My name is Robin A. Nordnes, I’m an undergraduate in my third, and final, year studying a BSc in Computer Science at Oxford Brookes University. I am currently in the process of defining my bachelor's dissertation, where it will be based on Hyperledger technologies.  I should also mention that I am looking to pursue an academic career after my degree.

An undergraduate dissertation has its limits due to time constraints (deadline mid-march 2019). However, the bachelor thesis will establish the foundations for the post-graduate proposal that I will write and submit by the end of the year. 

Potential BSc Dissertation Topic: 
A light approach to following or similar, providing a base for understanding and exploration: 
  • Simulating consensus networks at scale with tools like Shadow (shadow.github.io) and developing a common ontology for describing the characteristics of each consensus algorithm.

MSc + PhD Potential Topic: 
The objective is to practice the technologies in a socioeconomic context based on a lean economy (David Fleming, Lean Logic). With appropriate research methodology for Oxford University - MSc + DPhil in Social Data Science.

Some of the broad general topics mentioned on hyperledger.org within the area.
  • Governance of a Multi-stakeholder ecosystem.
  • Optimize blockchain platform performance in large-scale with new protocols, new network architecture and hardware.

Any potential assistance forming my research questions for the undergraduate and post-graduate proposal would be greatly appreciated. 

I hope to hear back from you and look forward to it.

Best Regards, 
Robin A. Nordnes
