8lock Academy

8lock has signed an ATP (Authorised Training Partnership) with the Linux Foundation – Hyperledger last week to launch an academy that focuses on world-class education related to blockchain technology. The academy is set to launch in the upcoming weeks, with courses that focus on understanding blockchain and its benefits, blockchain architecture as well as a developer course that will allow candidates to build their own decentralised applications.

Hyperledger is an umbrella project of open source blockchains and related tools, started in December 2015 by the Linux Foundation and supported by big industry players like IBM, Intel and SAP to support the collaborative development of blockchain-based distributed ledgers.

Enrollment at 8lock Academy is expected to start in the third week of November, along with introductory workshops that will be hosted around this time. Meanwhile, interested candidates and potential partners can get in touch with the team at hello@8lock.io.
