What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
The LAB is the place where ideas flow, get tossed around and formed into projects that the group builds together. Any member of BlockSpaces (that has signed our NDA) can bring their ideas to the LAB to perfect their pitch, design their Proof-of-Concept (PoC), and to form a dev team. We will focus intensively on 1 or 2 projects in the LAB each week for a group ideation session. We give equal time to the TECH involved, and the BUSINESS that would require the solution. During our TECH segment we will discuss the problem being solved, tactics for construction, and specific designs for a solution. During our BUSINESS segment we will focus on the business uses, funding model, potential partnerships, and the marketing strategy for the solution. We have already started building a few projects this way, and we are building a community that will require every skillset (not just developers) in order to create blockchain projects that truly solve real-world problems in a compelling way. Everyone is welcome to join the LAB, but you must sign an NDA so that everyone in the LAB can feel safe sharing their ideas and teaming up to deliver solutions. All projects moving through the LAB will have an opportunity to present their ideas on March 28th at our Q1 "Project Pitch Day" where we will be inviting investors and people from local media companies to meet you and discuss your plans for next steps. Looking forward to helping you BUIDL the future of Blockchain, here in Tampa Bay!
This is a guided study group to help everyone earn 3 badges related to Big Data, Data Analytics, and Data Privacy. These are beginner level badges so there will not be any prerequisite badges. We will walk through each of the courses as a group, then have a brief QA as a group, followed by completing the exam and collecting the badges we have earned. For any new attendees, we will help you with setting up your badge accounts and posting your new badges on your Linked-In profiles. During this Workshop, we will be completing the following 3 badges: https://cognitiveclass.ai/courses/what-is-big-data/ https://cognitiveclass.ai/courses/data-science-101/ https://cognitiveclass.ai/courses/data-privacy/ This event is free to all BlockSpaces members and will cost $20 for non-members. Look forward to seeing you all there!
Software development is focused on building prototypes quickly, and being able to build all layers of the application (full-stack). This meetup will focus on different tools and techniques for accelerating your venture into fullstack development. Every meetup will be a complete lesson on an individual perspective of the fullstack, so we anticipate future meetups for backend, frontend, devops, automation, code generators, and architecture. During this meetup (2 hrs), we will focus on Ionic v4, and during this session, we will start with a data model, create a web application, test the web application in the Ionic Lab, and then package the application as a native Android app. We will also take a brief review of the Ionic components and UI / UX framework. A cheatsheet will be provided to help you with your own future Ionic projects. Look forward to seeing you all there!
