Event description

Description

Due to the popularity of a previous event in this format, we have taken steps to ensure additional seating capacity. That said, please plan to arrive early to ensure you have a spot as seating is limited.


Description:

Want to learn how Bitcoin and Ethereum work, how cryptography plays a key role in securing funds, or how a network of untrusted computers guessing random numbers quadrillions of times per second adds security to the blockchain? Join Scott Bigelow in an introduction to the blockchain and some common blockchain-based applications. New technologies, such as the blockchain and Ethereum, can provide new opportunities in the startup-rich ecosystem of Portland. Additionally, understanding these revolutionary new design principles can help illuminate new ways of designing your own systems.

No previous working knowledge of cryptography or other supporting technologies necessary, this will be a ground-up introduction.


Agenda:

  • 12:00 - Introductions

  • 12:10 - Discussion Begins

  • 12:50 - Q&A


PDXWIT Purpose:

PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities. We are unifying a supportive environment for current and potential women in tech, all of whom are committed to helping each other. Our goal is to bring together and empower women in tech and to encourage others to pursue tech careers. This is our step towards reducing the gender imbalance in the industry and addressing the current negative effects of that imbalance on women.


Trans and non-binary people are always welcome at our events.
