About the course

This 3 day course is designed for Architects, and System Administrators interested in gathering a deeper understanding on how Hyperledger Fabric Networks are Architected and operated throughout. You will learn about the integral base files in which Fabric are built upon. You will learn about how identity, and permissions are administered throughout Membership Only networks. Additionally, you will gather the experience necessary to enter into and manage nodes/peer needs (i.e. chaincode installation, securing communication, etc).

What You’ll Learn

  • Gain an understanding of the Hyperledger Fabric network topology
  • Learn about Chaincode, its purpose, and how to develop it using Go.
  • Learn how to handle chaincode operations such as making chaincode packages accessible to peers, invoking and interacting with the chaincode logic from the CLI, and much more.
  • Learn about how to create and develop an initial client Side solution (Using Node) to interact with the network.
  • Learn about how to scale the network organizations, peers, and orderer nodes.
  • Perform Certificate Authority Related operations & setup necessary for initial network Identity relations.
