The purpose of this group is to develop the skills necessary to become a blockchain and Decentralized app (Dapp) developer. The end goal will be to develop the ability to create new forms of Dapps, services and protocols that will improve our lives. A side effect of this journey will be to learn how to learn new ideas.

We accept any and all who wish to learn about blockchains and Ethereum. The more experience the better, but eagerness to learn, make mistakes and experiment is most appreciated.

We value the use of technology to support the ideals of free inquiry, free thoughts, and free people. If this appeals to you, join!

In the spirit of goodwill, if you RSVP, please show up or update your RSVP accordingly. This gives the opportunity for another to show up.

Why this Meetup?

A spectre haunts the web - the spectre of surveillance and loss of control.

Our web needs a Reformation. The prevailing narrative of technology today is that we must sacrifice our privacy on the altar of progress. Nothing could be further from the truth. A free and open society can only exist if individuals own and control their data. We can build a web based on the values of liberty, freedom of consent, freedom of choice and mutual benefit.

🍺Happy Hour: Monthly State of the Dapps- by Blockstack🍺

Happy Hour: An UNSTRUCTURED, SOCIAL and FUN gathering. We are gathering the NYC blockchain community over beers and drinks to talk shop. Time to share updates about the current ecosystem, talk about the hottest Dapps and what lies ahead for the entire ecosystem. Users from all blockchains are welcomed! The goal is to foster cross collaboration between the different chains in the ecosystem so that we can learn from one another. And also, have a great hang. It goes without saying but better to be explicit: Only people ages 21 and older. You WILL be carded. Please bring ID. NO Official ID, No Admission or serving. ------------------------ AGENDA ‍🎟️ ------------------------ 🎤 6:00pm -7:00pm: Hang out... 🎤 7:00pm -8:00pm: ... More chilling out Some questions we can talk during the hang: How do you see the state of the ecosystem? What excites you about the space? What projects are you looking most forward to? As a developer, what do you want out an ecosystem? As an entrepreneur, how do you see launching a business on a blockchain? As a marketer, what do you think about user adoption? How do you feel about the toolchains that exist? If you had to build the next killer Dapp, what would it be? What value do you see in decentralized IDs? Shout out to Blockstack for making this happen!

⚡EthBoston Recap: Presentations from Teams⚡

WeWork Dumbo Heights

The Flatiron School // Access Labs are proud to support the Ethereum Blockchain Devs Study Group. This is a regular gathering for Blockchain Devs of all levels to learn, present, work on in collaboration with one another or on solo projects in this fast-growing field. Our community is a welcoming space where any Ethereum and de-centralized ledger related question is fair game, be it beginner, intermediate, or advanced. ------------------------ AGENDA ‍🎟️ ------------------------ 🎤 6:30pm - 7:00pm: Beginner Q&A 🎤 7:00pm - 8:50pm: EthBoston Recap: Presentations from Teams ‍🎤 8:50pm - 9:00pm: hacking/coding/open source Typically we will review Mastering Ethereum, answer questions on Solidity, work on Dapps and review any new resources or show a project. TODAY: Tribute: Ethan Wessel, Brian Chou, Victor Rortvedt, and Patrick Gallagher Github: https://github.com/pi0neerpat/tribute DevPost: https://devpost.com/software/tribute Tribute is a web3 UI dashboard that calls the rDAI smart contracts and allows users and paid content publishers to transact using directed rDAI interest. It is designed to enable subscription access to paid content by allocating a portion of a user's rDAI interest to the publisher. The user's rDAI principal balance never goes down, but pays for services and content by foregoing the ability to keep the interest generated by their rDAI (which is tied to the Compound's DAI interest rate - at or above 10% for the past few months). Tribute enabled content publishers could be game or video streaming services, publications, charities or online casinos, among others. AnonHero: Jason Tissera, Tiffany Marroquin, Mike Cohen, Anthony Albertorio Github: https://github.com/CodeSlip/AnonHero DevPost: https://devpost.com/software/anonhero AnonHero provides people with the tools to provably participate-in and share real events that are at risk of media censorship. It's a platform to help anyone tell their story, and unequivocally prove it on the blockchain, while protecting their identity. SwanDAI: Will Shada, Will Price, and Will Sheehan- The W3 team Github: https://github.com/opz/SwanDAI Devpost: https://devpost.com/software/swandai SwanDAI is a synthetic asset that tracks the deviation of DAI's price from its dollar peg in an exponentially increasing fashion. Taking a long position on SwanDAI can result in a massive payoff in the event of a black swan. Any others? Were you at EthBoston and would like to present? Do you have a cool project? Give the projects a like on DevPost and start on Github! ------------------------ CURRICULUM ------------------------ SEE FULL CURRICULUM HERE: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1W9o5ex03yWZHZLNs0Q3CYn8qTHonQCgwAfydexnO57A/edit?usp=sharing ------------------------ INFO ------------------------ Our goal is to foster a community where attendees can share coding tips, cool blockchain finds or short tutorials, set realistic goals, and encourage one another and create open source Dapps in a collaborative environment.

We can’t wait to build a stronger blockchain developer community in New York City! ------------------------ HOW IT WORKS ------------------------ Beginner can come in at 6:30pm and ask questions. There will be presentations at 7pm to 8pm (or onward depending on demand). During our coding open source time the Meetup is divided into three levels: beginners, intermediate, advanced and planning committee. Think of it as a Montesorri school, self-directed but with structure and ALOT of peer collaboration. Beginners are given a set of collaborative self-guided learning goals. These goals are attainable in the time it takes to complete the meetup and will get your from zero to knowledgeable in 2 hours. Beginners should help each other and if intermediate or advanced are available ask for help. Intermediates are given a set of more advanced learning goals, including testing their knowledge on open-ended open source issues from various projects. The Advanced members will work on open source projects, creating issues, approving pull requests for projects that have been planned for using user-centric design. Those that wish to enter the planning phase of the project can join the planning committee which meets with domain experts to create feasible real world and viable Proof of Concepts technical along with specs of the projects. The purpose of these is to spin out viable open source blockchain applications. Any of the three levels can join the planning committee provided they have technical merit, domain experience or serves as the ​role of questioner/end user: a lay person that asks common sense questions about the project. All projects will be labelled under MIT license. More on that later. Shout out to member Dimitris Kouzis-Loukas for the great idea. ------------------------ JOIN OUR SLACK ------------------------ 1.
