NEO DevCon 2019, a two-day conference expected to showcase the breakthroughs in blockchain tech an in-depth look at the NEO’s progress, is scheduled for February 16th-17th, at the Hyatt Regency in Seattle.
At the end of what has been a rollercoaster year for blockchain projects, smart economy pioneer NEO is bucking the trend with its second developer conference.
NEO DevCon 2019 is scheduled for February 16th-17th, at the Hyatt Regency in Seattle.
Home to tech giants such as Microsoft, Amazon and Valve, Seattle has cemented its position as a city on the cutting edge of digital innovations. Bringing the blockchain developer conference to Seattle allows NEO to create a platform for the best developers and tech talent from across the world.
Speakers at the event will include Da Hongfei and Erik Zhang, co-founders of NEO, as well as Steven Guggenheimer, corporate vice president of Microsoft, Miha Kralj, managing director of Accenture, and many more.
Erik Zhang, founder of NEO, said:
“NEO is working hard to develop the smart economy of tomorrow, so it’s fitting that we’re heading to Seattle, the home of Microsoft and some of the biggest technology businesses operating today.
NEO DevCon will enable you to connect and engage with the worldwide NEO community, and provide access to resources that will help you build and realize value from the next generation of blockchain applications.”
The two-day conference is expected to showcase the breakthroughs in blockchain technology over the past year as well as an in-depth look at the progress of NEO’s ambition to create a smart economy.
NEO will elaborate on many aspects of their newly released road map, including the recent call for third parties to run consensus nodes. They will also unveil some exciting upcoming plans for expansion and development in 2019.
Similar to last year’s event in San Francisco, industry experts and blockchain entrepreneurs consider NEO DevCon a forum for new ideas and intensive debate over the future of the cryptocurrency industry.
It’s a critical debate at a time when many crypto teams and projects are adapting to a new phase in the market as blockchain and its adoption continue to mature.
However, the NEO community has always been more persistent than the wider blockchain sphere of influence.
This year’s theme: “ContiNEO – We keep on going” – alludes to the resilience of the smart economy idea and the tightly-knit network of over 1,000 contributors and half a million users.
Event organizers said they were expecting over 600 people to attend and have devoted much of the two-day schedule to developers, investors, technologists and businesses that have developed solutions on the nascent NEO platform.
