Description 

The Learning Materials and Development Working Group at Hyperledger, Linux Foundation, is looking for two enthusiastic mentees willing to scout and map existing opportunities to learn about DLT and Blockchain around the globe.


Our Wiki Page is the entry point to the Galaxy of Hyperledger. Our team keeps a Resource Library of Hyperledger Projects and Tools, Use Cases, Key Terms, Learning Materials for Special Interest Groups and Working Groups, Templates, Meetups, Labs, Marketing, and News. As well as a sinopsis of current events, announcements, community events, requirements for Best Practice Badges, GitHub resources. We proof-read edX Blockchain courses for Linux Foundation (Hyperledger). We have 50+ registered and recorded meeting agendas.


We want to identify and contact potential allies to link our inner Hyperledger Universe with the rest of the world. We need scouts to explore, register and map the outer territories beyond our community.
