• Learn Ethereum & Help the Homeless

    Clutch Talent

    This event is a cross-event with the New York JavaScript Study Group (https://www.meetup.com/New-York-JavaScript-Study-Group/events/243155556/), which is developing an app to help the homeless population in NYC. Please either RSVP here OR in the other group. Do not RSVP to both! We'll be leveraging blockchain technology (Ethereum, specifically) toward helping the homeless in a multi-part hackathon. We have a project in mind...but you have to come to the meetup to get in on the secret! The first step will be to set up our Ethereum environment and getting started with creating a "hello world" app in Solidity. Our agenda for this meetup will be specifically to: • Quickly recap the goal / vision of our app for helping the homeless • Work together to figure out how to set up our environment for building in Ethereum and specifically how it can best be used for this project • Make a basic "hello world" app in Solidity. IMPORTANT: This is a hands-on peer programming session. Please bring a laptop and expect to do some basic programming. See you all there!

  • SAVE THE DATE: ProtoHack NYC

    General Assembly

    ProtoHack exists to show non-coders that they can create something amazing from nothing. We empower and enable the non-technical community with the tools, knowledge and connections that will help bring their idea to life and visually communicate it through prototyping. Get your ticket here (http://www.protohack.org/events/protohack-new-york-city) ProtoHack requires no coding. Instead you’ll be using prototyping tools, drag and drop editors, mockups, wireframes and anything else you think of to visually demo your idea on stage. Competitors will work in teams (up to 4) or solo. You have 9 hours to prototype your idea and then you’ll present on stage. ProtoHack will be a 12 hour experience where you will build a prototype that communicates an idea visually. During ProtoHack you’ll learn how to use the best prototyping tools in the industry, network with like-minded people with various backgrounds, become a better product person, and get exclusive access to over $500 worth of tools and goodies for registering! You can RSVP on Meetup to let us know to see you there, but to actually attend, you have to buy a ticket on their site: http://www.protohack.org/events/protohack-new-york-city RSVPing here does NOT mean you've RSVPd for the hackathon itself.
