All essential concepts that make æternity unique will be presented and explained, and participants will get to test out æternity’s developer tools first-hand.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The æternity Universe One Hæckathon will be a fast-paced, intense crash course. Participants will have 48 hours to learn how to make use of æternity’s platform and developer tools and use them to their applications’ advantage.

Team up. You can work in teams of several people or solo. UX designers and entrepreneurs are also more than welcome to join.
