Celebrate #ETHSommer at Berlin Blockchain Week 18–29 August 2019. Learn more about our exclusive prizes, meetups, and knowledge sharing sessions.

The summer is warming up, and Berlin Blockchain Week is right around the corner. From 18–29 August, troves of hackers, developers, and entrepreneurs storm the city of Berlin to hear talks from industry leaders. Each day is packed with exciting content, spanning from the Web3 Summit at Funkhaus to DappCon at Technische Universität. Berlin Blockchain Week Volume I was a big (yet poorly documented) hit. This year, we cordially invite you to Berlin Blockchain Week 2019. This time, we’re bringing our cameras and exclusive prizes.

In the sea of overhyped blockchain conferences popping up in the city, Berlin Blockchain Week prevails as the community favorite. Returning for the second year, the decentralized conference continues its hyper-focus on education, knowledge sharing, and cutting edge industry updates from the mouths of those who ship. Most of the events are free, or cost-friendly, giving you the chance to save your coins for a gemuüse kebap or buy your plane ticket to DevCon.

Events you can’t miss:

As a decentralized, community-organized initiative held in various locations, it can be difficult to choose between an overload of exciting activities. We recommend purchasing a BVG ticket, downloading one of those e-scooter apps and shuffling yourself to the following events:

Kauri Documentation Bounties

Up-to-date and good quality documentation is often mentioned as lacking in most software projects, and doubly so with Web3. In the first collaboration hackathon of many with the ConsenSys Grants team, Kauri launches documentation bounties at ETHBerlin for projects to get their issues funded and worked upon by hackers. Keep an eye out four bountied documentation issues for ETH Berlin.

Developer Interviews

Have you met Narly? Born from the sea of Open Source, Narly, the futuristic, robotic-yet-conscious gender-neutral Narwhal, makes their debut during #EthSommer.
