Linux Foundation Offering Courses through edX
A small series of courses from the Linux Foundation on Blockchain for Business aims to demystify the fundamentals of blockchain and distributed ledger technologies. It also teaches businesspeople practical applications of blockchain and how they might use it in their own field.
Hyperledger is promoting and incubating enterprise grade software, where anyone can set up apps that meet cross-industry needs. Businesses today are utilizing blockchain technologies to solve problems as well as increase efficiency. This aids in solving business problems such as security, data privacy, information sharing, and inclusion.
The syllabus includes topics such as technology basics, the impact of blockchain, Hyperledger projects, and working with both Hyperledger Sawtooth and Hyperledger Fabric. The introductory courses are “carefully curated for both technical and non-technical audiences.”
