Presentation #1:
Vimsical ( - A Learnable World
Our challenge, not just for education, but for the world, is to make things self-explanatory. Whatever you see, you should be able to learn how it was made. Vimsical is a Codepen-like editor with a built-in version control system, that turns regular coding sessions into tutorials, automatically. Dennis (twitter: @denik) is a coder, educator, and co-founder of Vimsical.

Presentation #2:
Building Decentralized Apps on Codepen using Blockchains
This will be a demo and intro on how to build Decentralized apps using Codepen. Some blockchain technologies we'll go over are Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ardor/NXT. Pat is a Drupal full stack designer working with blockchain technologies since 2014 at xCubicle.
