EDCON Covering All Facets of Ethereum Community
Expecting this event to be even larger than last year, the EDCON organizers have made sure there will be something for everyone at the conference, breaking the event into three parts.
Kicking off the conference is EDCON HACK, a hackathon focused on developing solutions and utilities using the Ethereum platform. The hackathon will run from April 8th to the 10th, with all ideas and projects welcome.
Everyone is encouraged to participate in the hackathon. Those interested can apply at the official EDCON website.
“We encourage everyone who is interested in Ethereum to apply [for the hackathon]: developers coders, cypherpunks, designers and builders,” conference organizers told press.
“Before the on-site event, [the] EDCON team will be streaming several live workshops to get all hackers prepared for the competition.”
The hackathon also includes educational workshops. Registration for these workshops is now open, and participants will receive live training on Etherum layer one and two solutions, including Sharding, Proof of Stake, Plasma, Channel and Snark.
The main event will take place from April 11th through the 13th. During this portion of the conference, the Core Ethereum development teams will discuss the latest updates alongside influential speakers and community members.
Here are some of the confirmed speakers for the main event:
The last day of the conference is scheduled to be a “fun day.” Event organizers have put together various outdoor activities, giving the Ethereum community a chance to interact with each other in a fun and informal environment.
Conference organizers are especially excited about this year’s event, expecting it to be the biggest one yet with over 1,000 attendees and more than 100 company founders and Ethereum developers.
