SteemFest² Updates - New Names Announced - Spotlight: SteemFest Blockchain Hackathon announced - register now!

in #steemfest4 years ago

Another busy week. I managed to do a little kitesurf after my crazy coastal trip of 3 weeks ago. Wind was crazy stormy but nice to have a couple of hours away from it all and focus on one thing: Surviving the wind & water, while having fun doing so :) Back to that other thing now.... SteemFest!


View from LX Factory - SteemFest hackathon location

New names talking / performing at SteemFest² announced:

  • @voronoi (US): Curious urbanist. Co-Founder of Sndbox
  • @quinneaker (US): Visionary & Founder of the Garden Of Eden EcoVillage
  • @the-alien (BR): (Ghost)Writer, entrepreneur, world traveler, blockchain and open-source enthusiast
  • @timsaid (DE): Crypto Challenge, scientist, photographer and free runner

Week updates

Cut the location video tour I did last week, will publish it next week. Wrote a press release in draft, discussed with Ned and some others. Shared with some outlets, will push more next week. Prepaid venues partly in order to reserve them. Also I got pretty hyped up by this idea coined by @originate to see about interest to do a 'SteemRally' - Gumball 3000 inspired roadtrippin through Portugal.

Had an IRL meetup with @peerplays about the sponsoring for the SteemFest Blockchain Hackathon, and they are going to! Also Decent and Bitshares are joining us for the hackathon (and Steemit obviously :D) Worked on the dedicated site for the hackathon and published it (read below about that).

24h session - 1 November - Cowork Lisboa @ LXFactory

Developer, designer, creator, hacker? Come 1 day early to Lisbon for developer pre-drinks and kick off the conference with the SteemFest Blockchain Hackathon. On Wednesday 1 November 9AM sharp the SteemFest Blockchain Hackathon kicks off in Cowork Lisboa at LXFactory Lisboa.

Be smart and check out the prize-sponsoring blockchains (Steem, Bitshares and Decent) and tune your apps for those chains and get a change to win those crypto monetary prizes!

I'm from Amsterdam, the whole dutch coast :)

Best of luck for Steemfest 3. I am not able to make it this year as I just returned from my Trans- Mongolia Adventure. However next year i will go, no matter what.

lucky you are, to take part to this event...

Hey @roelandp, I'm interested in the hackathon, but I live in the States and cannot make it to SteemFest. Is there a way to participate remotely>

idea is to have an on-site hackathon so ideas flow within ad hoc team, being there is ofcourse the nicest. I would have to see about remote participation especially with presentations / demos.

In any case: Please register on the hackathon page and you get updates about it and maybe you can join in either remotely on a team attending the hackathon or see how it works out... If you register you can apply for 'looking for team mates'

Sounds good, will do.

Wish great success on steemfest......

So excited for Steemfest 2!😍😍

Anyone interested in forming a team for NCR (India)? I think it will help us if some expert guide us(about steemit) face to face?

Definitely It will be a great fest :) Have fun Steem Family ;)

Hi @roelandp.. I'm new Here, I need a push , thank you for up vote this post

Wow awesome!!! we need to organsize a Steemfest in Germany!!!

A Steem meetup in Germany would be great! I think many would like to come as they can't make it to the SteemFest this time

You can always organise a Steem meetup. SteemFest will now after 2 editions in Europe move to another continent, so this is your change to still join in. Find a cheap flight and come join the weather in Lisbon!
