What we're about
Upcoming events (2)
There is an interesting competition and interaction between decentralized finance (DeFi) and centralized finance (CeFi) currently occurring in the cryptocurrency industry.
In this session we will look at, from a software developer perspective, how CeFi and DeFi are similar and different. DeFi and CeFi share similarities in the sense that they both involve the same financial services and promote the adoption of decentralized ledger technologies (DLTs). However, several significant differences split DeFi and CeFi into two different worlds. We will drill into how both CeFi and DeFi are implemented differently regarding Decentralized Apps (DAPP), Controllability, Risk and Profitability.
We will also be looking at how some of the publicly posted DAPP code is structured.
The last nine months of GCUG in-person and remote meetings have been a safe and resounding success, so we will keep up this format for this meeting. The in-person portion will be limited to 10 attendees in an outdoor Boca/Delray location that allows for social distancing. Safely prepared and packaged food and libations will be provided. Contact [masked] if you would like to join the limited in-person portion of meeting.
**This session is not in any way giving financial advice, investing entails risk and is the sole responsibility of the investor**
** Moving event to September 23, 2021, this was the first UG event delayed due to Covid, Cendeyn Spaces is expecting to be open for meetings in August, so we should be able to have a usual in-person crowd then **
We don’t know “Who let the dogs out”, but the “Original Gangstas of the Users Group” (OGs of the UG) community movement organizers in South Florida are “Putting the Band Back Together” for this event.
Panelists scheduled to appear are:
The OGs of the UG will be discussing the evolution of the Data Developer in a panel format. From FoxPro to Artificial Intelligence, these “Usual Suspects” will share their unique perspectives based on almost 30 years of contributing to the UG movement along the Gold Coast.
This panel will undoubtedly be entertaining as they share a wealth of information gained from decades of experience in the IT industry. Please be sure to RSVP and join us for light libations and snacks courtesy of our sponsor Infragistics.
