Hands-On Blockchain with Hyperledger: Building decentralized applications with Hyperledger Fabric and Composer
Leverage the power of Hyperledger Fabric to develop Blockchain-based distributed ledgers with ease
Write your own chaincode/smart contracts using Golang on hyperledger network
Build and deploy decentralized applications (DApps)
Dive into real world blockchain challenges such as integration and scalability
Blockchain and Hyperledger technologies are hot topics today. Hyperledger Fabric and Hyperledger Composer are open source projects that help organizations create private, permissioned blockchain networks. These find application in finance, banking, supply chain, and IoT among several other sectors. This book will be an easy reference to explore and build blockchain networks using Hyperledger technologies.
The book starts by outlining the evolution of blockchain, including an overview of relevant blockchain technologies. You will learn how to configure Hyperledger Fabric and become familiar with its architectural components. Using these components, you will learn to build private blockchain networks, along with the applications that connect to them. Starting from principles first, you’ll learn to design and launch a network, implement smart contracts in chaincode and much more.
By the end of this book, you will be able to build and deploy your own decentralized applications, handling the key pain points encountered in the blockchain life cycle.
