What we're about

Join our slack!:
http://bit.ly/StowProtocolSlack

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 do 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.

Ethereum Study Group: Let's build a Blockchain!

Community Room at 321 Wythe Ave

The Stow Protocol, ConsenSys and 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. Shout out to member Chance Baars for hosting us on Thursdays github.com/chancelorb linkedin.com/in/chancebaars ------------------------ AGENDA ‍🎟️ ------------------------ 🎤 7:00pm - 7:20pm: networking 🎤 7:20pm - 7:40pm: show and tell (workshops, peer lecture, quiz, etc.) ‍🎤 7:20pm - 8:50pm: hacking/coding/open source 🎤 8:50pm - 9:00pm: wrap up Typically we will review Mastering Ethereum, answer questions on Solidity, work on Dapps and review any new resources or show a project. TODAY: Build a Blockchain from scratch with Chainshot.com + various resources ------------------------ 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! ------------------------ RESOURCES ------------------------ SEE FULL LIST HERE BEFORE MEETUP: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1a_xmQYz9_IP34x-vt_oFDxT0gRT-BNXCr7IoQ3NR8Ho/edit?usp=sharing DO SOME OF CRYPTO ZOMBIES BEFORE MEETUP: https://cryptozombies.io ------------------------ HOW IT WORKS ------------------------ 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 peer collaboration. Beginners are given a set of standard beginner tasks and self-guided that they are to complete. They can help each other and if intermediate or advanced are available ask for help. The organizer will check in to make sure they are on the path to learning. Intermediates are given a set of more advanced tasks, 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. Our Slack: http://bit.ly/StowProtocolSlack ------------------------ WHAT TO BRING ------------------------ - Bring your laptop and a government-issued ID for getting into the building. ------------------------ OUR MISSION ------------------------ Helping to build a de-centralized world via a protocol which enables users to own and manage their data.
