Becoming a Hyperledger Aries Developer (LFS173x)

Learn how to develop blockchain-based production-ready identity applications with Hyperledger Aries in this free course.

Who Is It For

This course is for developers who want to learn how to build applications that use Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) and Trust over IP (ToIP) capabilities. The technical examples can be run by anyone familiar with using the command line and executing scripts. As such, a broader technical audience beyond developers will find the course helpful in understanding how ToIP can be used in designing business solutions.

I think the step-by-step process of this course, as well as the pre-requisite course was the best part. Working with new technologies isn't easy, no matter how many times you transition, or "get used" to doing so, so having chapters in easily digestible parts, appropriately timed labs, and the overall layout, helped a tremendous amount. I am very impressed with how much thought was put into the course design.
