    8. Framework and Tool overview (32'27")
      1. The Hyperledger Project.  6 Frameworks
        1. Fabric.  Fabric has a modular approach with plug-and-play consensus mechanisms.  It has the most developers working on it and has the most projects both in pilot and production.  The blockchain itself is written in GoLang.  The chain code can be written in Go, JavaScript or Java. The SDKs are supported by NodeJS, Go, REST and Python.
        2. Sawtooth.  This has a consensus that supports a large dispersed group of validators. It uses the timer on your computer and uses less energy.  This is also supported by Burrow which allows you to link to the Ethereum VM and smart contract capability
        3. Indy.  This a blockchain for identity, where you need to prove something without giving out all your information, using ZKP. 
        4. Burrow.  This is a permissioned smart contract node that sits on the Ethereum network that allows the exchange of smart contract information.  It supports Sawtooth at the moment and will soon be extended to Fabric.
        5. Iroha. this is an interface for people to develop and build for mobile platforms through library and code support.  This is in incubation at the moment.
        6. Grid. This is a supply chain solution software development kit.
      2. Tools (39'20")
        1. Caliper.  This is a performance and scalability measurement tool.
        2. Cello.  Blockchain as a service.  Helps you create and manage your blockchain and lowers your operating costs
        3. Composer.  Makes it simple and fast to develop blockchain by making it easier to integrate into other platforms.
        4. Explorer.  Gives a view to your blocks and transactions and chaincode, channels that are open etc
        5. Quilt.  This provides interoperability between blockchains with atomic swaps.
        6. Ursa.  A code library that means you do not need to re-write a lot of code
  6. Final AOB
    1. Chair of next meeting.  Will is travelling on 16th April and will be unable to chair.  Bobbi volunteered to chair the 16th April meeting.
