The Social Coding “Blockternship”

A distributed social hackathon….so what’s that mean 🤔

Well, when you have an open source project it’s in your best interest to allow people from all over the world to contribute, afterall that’s the meaning of open source, right?

So our idea was to host a hackathon, where anyone could contribute, collaborate and create projects directly into one organization and we would fund bounties and provide review code in real time.

Our goal with this invitingly open source initiative is to inspire and educate incoming developers!

Aragon, Swarm City and Chain Shot and Giveth are forming an alliance to kick start aspiring developers through a 2 month distributed hackathon, our intention is to open up our communities by providing resources, education and bounties to anyone who wants to start building on the Ethereum Blockchain.

Method of Registration

Requirements for Deadline

Immediate Next Steps

Head over to https://ethberlin.com/hacker-application/, to register for the hackathon, the registration deadline is August 7th. But do apply

If you need a visa for the hackathon, do mention that in the form...

Detail Description

What to expect in terms of ETHBerlin structure and organization?

The event will be held at Factory Berlin, which has not one, but TWO venues.

One is in the central district of Berlin, Mitte. The other brand new Factory venue is bang in the middle of the city’s startup scene, Gorlitzer Park.

Factory is one of the city’s biggest innovation hubs and these guys have been involved with the blockchain community here for a long time, so it’s only fitting the hackathon is held here.

On Day 1 we will have a launch event/mini-conf to kick everything off at Factory’s Mitte location, followed by a cocktail reception, cos we got to get those inspirational juices flowing.

We will also have a HACKER ONLY session at Factory’s other venue in Berlin’s infamous Gorlitzer Park, aimed to bring the hackers up to speed, set testnets and prepare their skillsets.

Day 2 will be the Hackathon + workshops (Görlitzer)

Day 3 will see the end of the hackathon, followed by presentations to the judges and then the announcement of the winners.

AND in true Berlin style, we will end with a blowout so everyone can let rip after an intense couple of days glued to their laptops.

 

How can I get a ticket to the talks/hackathon?

ETHBerlin is committed to inclusion, diversity, education, and above all, to the Ethereum Community improvement. We will not sell any tickets for this event. Some tickets will be available for free for things such as Day 1: conferences, or the Day 2 workshops. We will release separate applications in due time. Volunteers, Speakers, Sponsors, and Hackers will have access to all events (although they will need to sign up for some due to capacity restrictions)

LET'S DECENTRALIZED THE WEB TOGETHER

To celebrate the launch of our beta on the Ethereum main network, and in preparation for DevCon4, we invite you to Prague to help build a better, more equitable internet where we can live completely on crypto.

We're deadly serious about putting the power of these networks into people’s hands without compromising on the core principles that inform Ethereum.

We think we can achieve this by playing with our peers in a way that allows everyone to #buidl together products that will allow for more frictionless communication and transaction without any central control.

#CryptoLife is our latest contribution to a better web by gathering all the best minds in Ethereum right before our annual conference and creating the space they require to build paradigm-changing stuff together.
