In this course you’ll learn how to:

  • Get a good understanding of the Hyperledger Fabric network topology
  • Handle chaincode operations such as making chaincode packages accessible to peers, invoking and interacting with the chaincode logic from the CLI, and much more.
  • Administer identities, provide permissions, revoke or remove malicious nodes from the network
  • Troubleshoot network components by learning how and where to configure component logging
  • Learn about service discovery and private data.

This course is designed to be vendor- and distribution-neutral, so you will be able to apply these concepts universally.

You will have access to the course for a full year from the date of purchase (or availability, for preorders), regardless of how quickly you complete the course. You can expect the course to take 18-20 hours to complete (although the course is self-paced, so you can move as quickly or as slowly as you like).
