Distributed Saturdays! A Weekly, Blockchain Protocol-Agnostic, Learning Event
Ride the Rocket ship to DISTRIBUTED SATURDAYS! A weekly, peer-to-peer, protocol-agnostic learning fest for ALL knowledge levels, technical and non-technical. This week's theme...is kind of all-over the place. ;) ***FULL SCHEDULE*** 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM - Peer-to-Peer Learning 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM - Spatial Consensus, Location-Based Profit Sharing and Space Co-Governance + Wallet Workshop and Token Giveaway 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM - How to Deploy Dispatch-Based Smart Contracts 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM - Blockchain 101 for Non-Technical People 2:00PM to 4:00PM - EOS Hackathon Team Building ***FEATURED EVENTS THIS SATURDAY!*** 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM - How Spatial Consensus, Location-Based Profit Sharing and Space Co-Governance Work on a Public Blockchain + Wallet Workshop and Token Giveaway • GoWithMi is building the first entirely public Blockchain supported Location Based Services (LBS) ecosystem. How do you establish a low-cost global distributed mapping platform to map the real world in real-time, and also serve the global decentralized location ecology? How can we address the high cost, poor real-time performance, weak privacy guarantees, and revenue models of traditional, centralized, map providers that entirely neglects the end users. • This learning session will be followed by a workshop on how to download and use a wallet + tokens for all. http://www.gowithmi.com/ --- 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM - Intro Series Part II: How to Deploy Dispatch-Based Smart Contracts • It’s as easy as 1+1=2. You will get a chance to perform a little addition on the blockchain, and you don’t even need to know how to code in solidity! We will walk through how to use an API to create accounts, transfer tokens, deploy, and execute smart contracts on a blockchain. Next, we will walk through how to setup Node JS and implement a web-based back-end to execute smart contracts on a Dispatch's DLT. You’ll even see you how the code works. Join us and learn the basics of building on blockchain with Colin Lowenberg, Director of Developer Relations. • If you are interested in developing on Dispatch, please check out these links: Getting Started Guide: https://medium.com/dispatchlabs/getting-started-with-dispatch-devnet-84dec9921178 Run your own Dispatch Node: https://github.com/dispatchlabs/disgo Read the API Docs: https://api.dispatchlabs.io/ NodeJS SDK: https://github.com/dispatchlabs/disnode_sdk Dev Talk on Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/bBkwVau ------------------- ***EVERY SATURDAY*** 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM - Peer-to-Peer Learning • For those interested in the technical side, no DLT programming language experience necessary. Would be great if you've coded in something, but pure interest goes a long way. Self-learning programs include... - CryptoZombies: Great primer on Solidity http://www.cryptozombies.io - Ethernaut: Smart contract tutorial https://ethernaut.zeppelin.solutions/ - Hyperledger Composer: Build a Hyperledger solution from scratch https://hyperledger.github.io/composer/v0.19/tutorials/tutorials.html ...and more. • If you've got a project you're working on or something you'd like to further your understanding of with others, please bring it! • Bring your laptops! --- 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM - Blockchain 101 for Non-Technical People • We'll break down what blockchain technology is, what a blockchain is, and how it will benefit you. --- 2:00PM to 4:00PM - EOS Hackathon Team Building • The SF EOS Developers group will get together from 2-4pm (weekly until Nov 3) to share and learn more about EOS, form teams and prepare for the EOS Hackathon on November 10-11th. ($140k+ in prizes) • Activities include: - Peer to peer EOS learning - Team formations - Project brainstorming ------------------- Telegram supergroup for this event: https://t.me/DistributedSaturdaysSF

What we're about

Throughout the week the SF Free School offers free classes to anyone and everyone who wants to learn, have fun and meet new people. Classes we've offered have been in music and dance, martial arts and yoga, meditation and philosophy, dating and relationships, acting and improvisation, networking and social media, foreign languages, computer use, job hunting, startups - and many other topics as well.

The SF Free School is focused on sharing activities and teaching skills which are fun, healthy and useful. We are currently only listing classes that are located in the SF area. Our events are often styled as potlucks, classes, workshops and public talks. We go on field trips, so we can explore new areas and discover new things, and we like to gather in parks and public areas. Indoors we gather in community centers and community meeting rooms, or we might be found in cafes, private homes and in public classrooms.

All classes and events at our locations are free of charge and open to all. We do not ask for cash for any of our classes and events and everyone is always welcome to attend our classes and events free of charge. Though our instructors and event hosts can accept donations which are freely offered for the classes and events they hold with us they may never ask for cash or donations from anyone who attends the classes and events they make available through the SF Free School.

We only have one rule at the Free School: Be Excellent to Each Other – and that is the only payment we ever require.

So come and enjoy yourself, start training your body and your mind, meet new people - or teach and share what you know. You are always welcome.
