After being postponed twice, Devcon is finally set to happen next week, from October 11 to 14, in Bogota, Colombia. The conference was originally scheduled in 2020, but due to COVID-19, it had to be moved. It has been a long awaited event for the Ethereum community, including our team at Curvegrid, so we are very much excited for what this year’s conference will bring. Some of our members are currently flying out to Bogota to join the event.
Previously, Devcon was held in 2019 in Osaka, Japan, which was the 5th edition in the conference series. Especially with how close the conference was to home, Curvegrid first joined Devcon back then. The event had a wide variety of conference talks ranging from DAOs to CryptoKitties to Japanese smart contracts, which provided many great insights for its participants. Moreover, the original “doge”, Kabosu, also graced the stage of Devcon 5 in Osaka. Prior to the event, there was the Road to Devcon virtual hackathon, which had more than 51 submissions and US$36,000 worth of prizes.
This year’s Devcon is hosting the ETHBogota hackathon, in which one of our very own co-founders, , is presenting and mentoring. The hackathon has more than US$300,000 worth of prizes to be won for its successful participants. For those who are unable to make it to Bogota, Devcon is also holding satellite events to give more people the chance to participate.
The four-day event will consist of panels, talks and workshops, providing plenty of opportunities to connect with different members of the Ethereum community. There are many different types of talks discussing cryptoeconomics, staking and validator experience, developer infrastructure, Layer 2s and many more. Devcon is a great opportunity for many types of learners to grow their knowledge on all things related to Ethereum.
Our team at Curvegrid is very much looking forward to this year’s Devcon!
