Cosmos is coming to Berkeley for a THREE PART workshop series!

IMPORTANT: You MUST claim a FREE TICKET on Eventbrite if you want to attend in-person.

Come and learn about about what one of the most innovative blockchain and interoperability projects in the space is working on!

This hands-on workshop will guide the audience through building a (simplified) Plasma on the Cosmos-SDK. Audience members will learn the basics of writing an application using the Cosmos-SDK as well as the basic theory behind Plasma MVP. After that there will be a quick walkthrough of the current FourthState implementation and a discussion of some of the reasoning behind the design decisions.

Online Material:
Coming soon...

Prerequisite Knowledge:
Basic understanding of Golang

Not Necessary But Helpful:
Understanding Proof-of-Work as well as current issues with blockchains like slow finality, high fees, etc.

We are looking for individuals who have a developer background as this is going to be a highly technical meetup.

Please BRING YOUR LAPTOP!
