The first question you might have is what is Hyperledger?

Hyperledger is a collaborative effort created to advance blockchain technology by identifying and addressing important features for a cross-industry open standard for distributed ledger technologies(DLTs) that will transform the way business transactions are conducted globally. Hyperledger consists of several projects.

What is the specific vision of Hyperledger Fabric?

We have Information and a great Video illustrating the vision of Hyperledger Fabric, which was shown at recent events including Sibos 2016.

Where do I learn more about the design of the Hyperledger Fabric?

Hyperledger Fabric is being built in a pluggable modular framework. With this design in mind blockchain networks can be purpose built with different modules to achieve different goals, such as faster ordering service, advanced vs simple query search, etc. Check out the roadmap roadmap, and our Design docs.

How do I get started with Hyperledger Fabric?

The Wiki is where you will find key items such as:

  • Link to the online documentation
  • Link to contributing
  • Link to Jira, which is the place to open a story, epic, task or bug
  • Link on how to navigate Jira
  • Link to Gerritt, which is the place to contribute, review CRs or submit code.
  • Mailing lists to subscribe to conversations.
  • Hyperledger Chat for group and 1 on 1 communications. [[community:chat_channels|Hyperledger chat channels]] guide provides descriptions, so you can find what you are most interested in following.

How do I interact with the community?

Key communication vehicles:

  • Hyperledger Chat for group and 1 on 1 communications. [[community:chat_channels|Hyperledger chat channels]] guide provides descriptions, so you can find what you are most interested in following.
  • Mailing lists to subscribe to conversations and participate.
  • "Working groups" - There are several active [[community:calendar-public-meetings|working groups]] that tackle big items such as the technical steering committee, requirements gathering and definition of use cases, identity, and documentation, etc.

How do I get help?

  • Hyperledger Chat is a great place to start if you have a quick question; just state your question on the channel you have a question. For example, if you have consensus questions open a question on #fabric-consensus.
  • Also search for your answer, or open your question in stack overflow.
  • For longer possible discussion items use the Mailing lists.
