API Craftsmanship goes decentralized !

The new paradigm of decentralized applications (dApps) and value transfer on the blockchain is becoming very popular.

Using a set of interfaces and client libraries we can now interact with a blockchain to create a decentralized record of transactions. Everyone can participate or create new ecosystems where value is transferred just as easy as information has been transferred for years on the internet.

This meetup will get you up to speed on the concepts of Dapps and is targeted to all Blockchain enthousiasts.

Doors: 18h30 - start: 19h00
