Hi all -

Near Protocol is a super-awesome project working on blockchain scalability. They're also presenting an evening here in Denver as part of the BUIDLweek festivities in the week prior to ETHDENVER.

We're pleased to host them at this upcoming event. If you're a developer eager to dive in and have fun, this is right down your alley. Here's more about the workshop, in their own words:

*********************************************************************************

If you're a current blockchain developer or are migrating from an existing stack (eg the web) to see why life is more interesting on a chain, this event is for you.

Join us on February 12th, and you'll get a chance to test-drive the new NEAR DevNet. NEAR is a scalable, developer-friendly blockchain put together to address the key concerns of existing blockchains -- usability, scalability, and business models. You have the chance to be among the first to take it for a spin before it becomes publicly available.

In the event, which in partnership with ETHDenver, our Co-Founder Illia Polosukhin will be available to coach you through a workshop that will get your hands dirty building and deploying a DApp on the chain. We'll have food and drinks as well.

## Prerequisites

You'll be able to use our web-hosted IDE for this so you don't *need* to download anything but we'll make the self-hosted environment available at the event. Also:

+ Read The Beginner's Guide to NEAR Protocol for a sense of what NEAR is building and why it's different: https://medium.com/nearprotocol/the-beginners-guide-to-the-near-blockchain-62f1c739e098
