Event description

Description

Build a distributed app prototype in a weekend!

Familiarize yourself with a new coding paradigm and learn tools for the rapid development of decentralized applications. Holochain is a post-blockchain protocol for storing data in a completely peer-2-peer network. Join training lead Connor Turland, co-founder, Art Brock, and members of the Holochain team for a weekend workshop on using the technology.

  • Friday, May 25th 6:00PM—9:00PM @ Anaconda

  • Saturday, May 26th 10:00AM—9:00PM @ Anaconda

  • Sunday, May 27th 11:00AM—6:00PM @ Anaconda

Note: Friday's session is free and open to the public. There will also be a Live Stream for those not in the room.


Are you interested in building decentralised applications?

Holochain is a breakthrough in the scalability of distributed computing that allows you to run Facebook scale applications on a decentralized architecture. Holochain dApps (hApps) are held completely by their users in a peer-2-peer network. Users are directly connected in a data commons with no centralised server or cloud processing data between them. Holochain is currently in Alpha with a number of prototype apps available to play with. This weekend is an opportunity to come get started on building your own!

Hackathon Structure

Project co-founder, Art Brock, and training lead, Connor Turland, will introduce people to building in the Holochain framework. We encourage people to come with distributed app ideas. Experience with either JavaScript or Lisp will be helpful, but not mandatory.

The Friday evening session will be held at the Anaconda offices at 221 W 6th Street. It will include an introduction to the technology from Art with an inital Q&A. This session is free and open to the public. There will also be a Live Stream for those unable to be present.

Saturday and Sunday attendees will experience short educational sessions alternating with unstructured time for learning and collaboration with the goal of building an app prototype.
