Join this session to take a deeper dive into blockchain interoperability and hear real-life examples of how two key Hyperledger projects are addressing challenges.
During two lightning talks, you’ll hear from project maintainers, Venkatraman Ramakrishna, from Hyperledger Labs Weaver, and Peter Somogyvari, Hyperledger Cactus Lead, Accenture, providing an overview of their respective projects.
Venkatraman and Peter will each discuss progress updates, past and current contributions, and plans to ensure these different blockchain interoperability initiatives can work cohesively, while maintaining standardization and avoiding redundancy.
We also encourage attendees to attend the Hyperledger Budapest Meetup event on interoperability using the Perun framework taking place on October 14th from 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM ET. Please feel free to register for this event as well using the link below:
Peter Somogyvari is a technology architect at Accenture where he is one of the maintainers of the top level Hyperledger project called Cactus that aims to be an enterprise grade framework for blockchain integration/interoperability. He was a speaker at Hyperledger Global Forum both in 2020 and 2021.
Venkatraman Ramakrishna (Rama) is a Senior Researcher in IBM Research-India (Bangalore). Following a B. Tech. from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur and an MS and PhD (in ubiquitous computing) from UCLA, he worked in the Bing Infrastructure team in Microsoft, building reliable service deployment software. At IBM Research, he worked in mobile computing and security before changing his research focus to blockchain in 2015. He has worked on enterprise blockchain solutions in trade finance and shared KYC using Hyperledger Fabric, and also on performance measurement and analysis of the Fabric platform. Lately, he has been creating tools and protocols for interoperability between DLT platforms and networks.
Ramakrishna has co-authored a book on Hyperledger Fabric development, presently in its second edition, titled "Blockchain with Hyperledger Fabric: Build decentralized applications using Hyperledger Fabric 2", written several research papers for conferences and journals, and holds several patents from the USPTO.
