Hey! I hope you are doing well. I'm happy to let you know that https://cryptoland.tech/ is organizing their 2nd meetup. Check here our event page for more details: https://events.cryptoland.tech/

This one is going to be a hands on session, tech wise. Therefore, we are inviting all software developers to join us on June 25th, from 17:50, at https://clujhub.ro/, Cluj-Napoca, Romania, for our FREE event about smart contract programming.

This time, our focus will be on an introduction to smart contract programming, as follow:

* We will kick off at 17:50 with a short intro about the role that cryptoland.tech can play in the development of the ecosystem and how we can all use this environment to collaborate, partnership, share our knowledge and challenge the status quo by using blockchain or distributed ledger technologies.

* In the first part, Sorin Tanasescu, Hegedus Levente and Alex Cosma from Centrys team (https://centrys.io/), will discuss about smart contracts. A buzzword nevertheless, 'smart contracts' are the core of what Ethereum (and Ethereum based coins) stand for. We will examine the structure and the innards of a smart contract, implementing one (or more) from scratch using Solidity as a base programming language.

* On the second part, Gossip Guy and Alex Males, Hashgraph Ambassadors (https://www.hederahashgraph.com/), will take a look at who’s using Hashgraph and its use as consensus algorithm for Fast Contracts.
> First, Gossip Guy (https://www.youtube.com/c/GossipGuy) will join a conf call all the way from New York City and he will provide an overview of the hashgraph ecosystem. This includes a summary of the projects recently announced using hashgraph in either the private/permission or public (i.e. Hedera Hashgraph) environments. The presentation will also cover other resources available should developers consider launching the DApp using hashgraph.
> Second, Alex Males will discuss about DLT technologies and the fact that all face the scalability issues that slow down the smart contracts and make execution expensive. While the memory of CryptoKitties congesting Ethereum's network is still fresh, he will take a look at one of the high performance consensus algorithms that could be fast enough to run a "world computer". Hashgraph offers ultra high throughput with low latency while also improving security aspects like fairness. We'll see what is the secret sauce of Hashgraph and we'll run a live coding session for an interesting smart (and fast) contract.
