Hyperledger Fabric with Nephos & Privacy-Enabled Digital Services

In this 2-day workshop, participants will learn how to deploy Hyperledger Fabric in minutes using Nephos (a library to deploy Hyperledger Fabrid projects) and how to build a privacy-enabled digital service for secure communications.

On the first day, participants will be presented with an overview Hyperledger Fabric architecture and its features, and will be guided in using Nephos to set up a basic production environment on Kubernetes. On the second day, the Hyperledger Fabric deployment from Day 1 will be used to deploy a digital service for secure communications. Participants will be able to enrol in the service and use it to establish a communication channel with each other.
