Last week was our Blockchain Developers Meetup 12th gathering which made it our meetup’s birthday.

Blockchain Developers Meetup 12 - Birthday
Blockchain Developers Meetup 12 – Birthday

We’ve been organizing this meetup for a year now, and we wanted to dedicate this meetup for you – our community.

Our great community of blockchain developers

That’s why we named it whoami && man myproject (linux/unix guys will understand me) to give the stage to all the cool people in our community to share whatever they want to share to the rest – what brought them to the blockchain space, what project are they currently BUIDLing or working on or what is their next blockchain adventure. We wanted to have an event that will celebrate the growth of our community, and bring value for those participating in it. So we decided to gather in a casual meetup with more social interaction and networking.

It was party time, and parties are always much more fun with more people, so this time we decided we had a joint event together with Sofia Crypto Meetup.

It is vacations season but still, we counted more than 30+ people, which made it a great first-year birthday. Thank you and thank our great host from Networking Premium Coworking spaces which were not only hosting us but prepared balloons and decoration for the party.

P.S. Its not a developers meetup without pizzas, chips, beers, and pickles.
