We look back at where we have come from and look forward to some of the most interesting and promising blockchain projects around Facilitator: Facilitator Here Facilitator: Peter Munnings Peter has over 25 years software development and training experience. He is passionate about people, what motivates them and what inspires them. He has worked in a diverse range of industries, creating software and leading teams of developers and engineers. His experience with power utilities, insurance companies, educational institutions, banks, regulators and asset managers lead him to a place where he felt there must be a better way to transact and share data. In 2014 he was exposed to blockchain technology. Seeing the potential of this disruptive technology he immersed himself in fully understanding how the technology worked and how it would impact the world. For 2 years he headed up the blockchain technical team at FirstRand Bank, the biggest bank in Africa before joining ConsenSys in March 2017. Initially at ConsenSys he was responsible for delivery on a number of ConsenSys Enterprise projects and more recently has specialised and is building blockchain based payment platforms Session 2 Title: TBC Facilitator: TBC TBC If you are new to the group, read our monthly meeting FAQ to answer some common questions (

What we're about

Public Group

We love all things developer.

We are a technology & vendor neutral group (so we do not favour anyone or anything) which lets us share and learn on WIDE variety of topics from software development methodologies to patterns, best practices, various language paradigms and xkcd humour etc.

It's great to meet local developers and see what they are doing! From beginner to expert, all are welcome.

We meet monthly to learn about things related to software development. Our regular meetings happen on the second Tuesday of every month starting at 16:30 in Bryanston, and every third Wednesday of every month starting at 18:00 in Centurion. We also run ad hoc special events.
