During this interactive session, we will deep-dive into the capabilities of [Hyperledger Aries](https://wiki.hyperledger.org/display/ARIES/Hyperledger+Aries), an open-source project aimed at managing digital identities rooted in blockchain or other distributed ledger technology. Aries includes a shared cryptographic wallet for blockchain clients, along with a set of protocols for enabling decentralized identity. It offers tools, libraries, and reusable components for creating and using independent digital identities based on verifiable credentials, using the power of modern cryptography.
In addition, we will explore [Hyperledger AnonCreds](https://wiki.hyperledger.org/display/ANONCREDS/), a powerful system developed by the Hyperledger Foundation for anonymous credentials, and discuss its seamless integration with Hyperledger Aries. AnonCreds allows individuals to prove facts about themselves anonymously, securely, and privately—offering unparalleled control over personal data in an increasingly digital world.
Our session will showcase how Hyperledger Aries and AnonCreds, when combined, offer a robust, privacy-preserving framework for managing and verifying digital identities in a decentralized manner, empowering individuals and organizations alike.
We are especially excited to include a live demonstration showcasing how to run Hyperledger Aries on a web browser. This demo will provide a hands-on understanding of the system, showing how easy and efficient it is to work with Hyperledger Aries in a real-world setting.
Whether you are a seasoned developer, a student, or merely an enthusiast in the realm of digital identities and blockchain technology, this session is designed to offer valuable insights. By attending this meetup, you will have the opportunity to deepen your understanding, stimulate your creativity, and even network with other like-minded individuals.
Let’s dive into the future of digital identity management and credential verification together. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the captivating world of Hyperledger Aries and AnonCreds!
Looking forward to seeing you there!
Note: Given the technical nature of the meetup, attendees with a basic understanding of blockchain technology and decentralized systems would benefit the most. However, we welcome everyone interested in learning about these technologies.
