The following working groups fall under the purview of the Technical Steering Committee.
|Architecture Working Group|
The Hyperledger Architecture Work Group (AWG) is a technical workgroup focused on developing an architectural framework for Enterprise class distributed ledgers, towards convergence on a modular architecture. This includes identifying common and critical components, providing a functional decomposition of an Enterprise blockchain stack into component layers and modules, regularizing interfaces between the components, and interoperability between ledgers.
The AWG serves as a cross-project forum for architects and technologists from the Hyperledger community to exchange ideas and explore alternate architectural options, discuss the tradeoffs, and capture the reasoning behind the choices. The AWG provides recommendations and architectural guidance to the projects under the Hyperledger greenhouse and encourages them towards convergence on a modular architecture. The AWG invites individual Hyperledger projects for architecture and design review to benefit from the expertise from the community as well as to shape the architectural direction of Hyperledger.
|Diversity, Civility, and Inclusion WG Home|
The Hyperledger Diversity, Civility and Inclusion Working Group (DCI) is chartered with measuring and improving the health of our open source community. We seek to provide constructive recommendations to the TSC, projects, and working groups. All are welcome to join us and help Hyperledger continue to grow in a diverse, civil, and inclusive way.
|Identity Working Group||The purpose of the Identity Working Group is to discuss, research, and document ways to capture, store, transmit and use Identities on the DLT, specifically for the projects in the Hyperledger greenhouse. The Identities can be of nodes that participate in the running of the DLT or entities that transact on the DLT.|
|Learning Materials Development Working Group|
The Learning Materials Development working group reports to the Hyperledger Technical Steering Committee. It is focused on developing open source training material (licensed as specified by the Hyperledger Charter) to educate people interested in expanding their knowledge of Hyperledger and its projects. The working group will consult with other Hyperledger working groups, Hyperledger team members, and the project maintainers to identify training needs and develop strategies, as well as, material to address those needs. The output of this working group will be targeted towards both technical and non-technical audiences
|Performance and Scale Working Group|
Performance and scalability are two key characteristics of any platform. In terms of most of the Hyperledger projects, both will directly relate to end user satisfaction and ultimately adoption of a project. For instance, if a code base consumes too many system resources or does not complete an action in a reasonable time with respect to other solutions, it may not succeed. Similarly, if a product does not scale well (horizontally and or vertically), it may not succeed.
The purpose of the Performance and Scalability Working Group (PSWG) is to discuss, research, and identify key metrics that relate to the performance and scalability of a blockchain and blockchain related technologies.
|Technical Working Group China||The Technical Working Group China/超级账本中国技术工作组 (TWG China, or TWGC) is a bridge between the global Hyperledger community, and the emerging technical user and contributor community in China and the greater China region, including Hong Kong and Taiwan.|
