Hyperledger Besu is one of the most exciting open source blockchain projects today: on one hand, it is one of the most popular choices for permissioned, enterprise ethereum applications.  On the other hand, it is one of the main execution clients for nodes on the Ethereum mainnet and is extremely important for public Ethereum. In fact, Hyperledger Besu was one of nine clients selected to participate in the EF’s Client Incentive Program. In this session, Hart Montgomery (CTO of the Hyperledger Foundation) will explain some background on Besu, a little bit of the project’s history, and why it is exciting to have an Ethereum execution client with a fully open-development model. Tim Beiko (Ethereum Foundation) will then explain the importance of Besu to Ethereum and the upcoming merge. Finally, we will hear from Besu maintainers on what excites them about Besu and how others can get involved in the community.
