Earlier this year, Chateaux was nominated as an IBM Blockchain partner to join others from around the world to participate in an IBM Blockchain Workshop at IBM Hursley in the UK. This workshop allowed participants to get exclusive training and knowledge, right from the creators of the enterprise blockchain platform. By facilitating this workshop, IBM succeeded in not only promoting enterprise blockchain, but in helping partners create blockchain solutions for themselves and/or their clients.

Chateaux sent our Blockchain Solutions expert, Vijay Rathna, to the workshop, where he participated in a multitude of activities including Code Camp. Code Camp was comprised of lab sessions that touched on topics ranging from how to create apps within Hyperledger platforms, to how to architect and develop blockchain solutions. Hyperledger is an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. It is a global collaboration, hosted by The Linux Foundation, including leaders in finance, banking, Internet of Things, supply chains, manufacturing and Technology.

Participants learned how to use the IBM cloud blockchain platform to develop and deploy Hyperledger-based blockchain applications. This also involved training on the Hyperledger Composer tool. which is an intermediate framework that provides businesses with an easier way to architect and build blockchain solutions without going into the underlying technology.

The workshop even went more in depth with their topics outside of Code Camp. For instance, topics that was discussed included “What is Blockchain and How Can It Help Businesses” and “How to Identify Business Use Cases”.  Participants were taught about the software development life cycle of a blockchain solutions implementation, how to properly identify resources and technologies that are part of the solution, and how to create a team of people that will get the job done.
