Overview/Description

In this course, participants discover how to download and install the prerequisites for Hyperledger Fabric and develop the configuration files to set up a Fabric network for their Blockchin solutions. You will begin to recognize what makes an application portable across environments and identify what makes containers more lightweight than virtual machines. Then, use Docker to define images and use them to provision containers. You will learn about Fabric prerequisite installation, Docker and Go, installing Docker and Golang—two prerequisites for Hyperledger Fabric—and download Hyperledger Fabric artifacts and Docker images needed to provision a network. Examine the various artifacts required to build a Hyperledger Fabric network. Then explore details that must be defined in the channel configuration file configtx.yaml file and the components of the Hyperledger Fabric network requiring cryptographic material to be generated in the crypto-config.yaml file. Understand the connection profile: components of the Fabric network and connecting to them. Finally, you will complete an exercise in setting up Hyperledger Fabric, by identifying the components and describing configuration files, including configtx.yaml and connection profile files.
