EDCON 2019 (Community Ethereum Development Conference) is a non-profit global conference which will happen in Sydney, Australia on 8-14 April 2019. The purpose of the conference is to improve communication among various Ethereum communities and to promote Ethereum ecosystem development on a global scale. EDCON is organized as a conference series, once a year in different countries. The previous EDCONs were held successfully in ESCP Europe, Paris 2017, and Ryerson University, Toronto 2018 (both were organized by LinkTime, one of the Chinese Ethereum community representatives). The Ethereum Foundation and various Ethereum communities have been strongly supportive to this high-quality community conference.
Great changes will take place in EDCON 2019. This time, we will bring a greater event with more opportunities for attendees to communicate with celebrities in this field and be involved in more interesting activities. You will see a total EDCON week which includes:
(1) EDCON Hackathon: a 48 hours event with non-stop creative storming for participants.
(2) EDCON Conference: a three-day conference including main conference, subconference, workshops, etc. Core Ethereum development teams will be invited to talk about the latest updates on Ethereum research and technology, and other pioneers in the field will share their thoughts on the current trends, projects and applications, as well as community building and development status.
(3) EDCON “Having Fun” day: a one-day outdoor activity. While this will no doubt be a great opportunity for network building between the community members, we would also like to provide the atmosphere in a more informal setting for everyone to relax after a week of hacking and sessions.
