Foundations: Hyperledger

Brian will provide a 10 min update on the state of Hyperledger, everything from growing members to new use cases and project traction. Brian will then be joined by Arnaud Le Hors, Chair of the Hyperledger Technical Steering Committee (TSC), who will give a brief update on technical and development milestones at Hyperledger.

The Changelog talk will be followed by a Q+A with James Wester, Research Director of Worldwide Blockchain Strategies at IDC. He will ask Brian and Arnaud a series of questions based off of their updates.
We’ll transition the conversation to Hyperledger Avalon, one of the latest projects to join the greenhouse. Avalon aims to address concerns around confidentiality and blockchain transactionality. Dan Middleton, Head of Technology for Intel's Blockchain and Distributed Ledger program and member of the Hyperledger TSC, will provide a quick introduction, speak to the traction, and explain how others can contribute to this up-and-coming project. Jonathan Hamilton from Accenture will join for the last 10 minutes to provide an exclusive peek at a brand new project, just accepted into Hyperledger. He will speak to the intention behind the project, the process of getting it from a lab to an official project in the greenhouse and its future at Hyperledger.
