Overview of this book

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.

You've learned how to make a real business network, using Hyperledger technology. You know how to interact with the business network as a user, as a designer, and as an application developer. You know how to define the participants, assets, transactions, and events, and how to implement their creation in the code. You know how to expose these as APIs so that external applications can consume them! You can learn a lot more about Hyperledger Composer and Hyperledger Fabric, consult the product documentation to do that. Armed with that information, and the knowledge in this chapter, you're in a great place to start building your own business network!

Let's now turn our attention to how we manage the development lifecycle in a blockchain network - how we achieve agility in a blockchain network. We'll look at the process and tools that help us set up and manage the day-to-day operations of getting blockchain software developed.
