Hey All,

We will be cypher sponsors of EthDenver again this year and this is a huge opportunity for us to show how far Status has come over the course of a year. EthDenver was a massive success last year with

  • 1500 total attendees (from 23 different countries)
  • 750 hackers
  • 150 projects produced

The community has grown significantly since last year and they are expecting nearly twice the amount of attendees this year.

Also - Status will be used as the official communication tool for the event. They will announce the public channel #ethdenver tomorrow.

Here is a project brief outlining goals, deliverables, positioning, and some kpi’s. With a smaller team focused on these types of initiatives, we need to be mindful of what we take on and our total project spend.

Attendees:

  • @Hutch: Run point in Denver
  • @naghdy: general support and Status representation (keynote?)
  • @Ben: partnership opportunities
  • @michaelb: technical representation (both Status & Embark), Workshop management

Production Support:
Banner Design and Booth Design - @Ned I will need some support to update banner assets and design assets based on the updated brand guidelines
Bounty Track - @cryptowanderer can you help define the bounty track? I think it makes the most sense to encourage extensions (or maybe there is something around SNT utility?).
Documentation - whatever the bounty track is, we should ensure that we have sufficient documentation, demos, tutorials so hackers can work with ease
Keynote design - @Ned should we use an old presentation template or should we update with new visual style?

  • We can share WIP here and use this thread to track progress
  • Content and Run of Show will be managed in wekan

If there is an opportunity to present, I’m happy to do it. I can also give a high level overview of Status, introduce the project, and then Michael can talk a bit about Embark.

Let me know what opportunities there are, and happy to drive it.


#3

Great. Im confirming with the event organizers now but the sponsorship contract states we are entitled to:

  • 5 minute keynote at opening ceremony (I think it would be good if Nabil presents this one)
  • Panel/workshop/speaking-op - If we can run a workshop, Michael should host one on Embark

Stay tuned - ill confirm today.


#4

Any update on the possibility of an Embark workshop?


#5

They are working on programming and scheduling now. But we should plan on an embark workshop anyway.


#6

Just got off the phone with Coury from EthDenver team. We are guaranteed:

  • 5 min Keynote intro (@naghdy - you cool to deliver this?). Basically an intro to Status and the extension bounty track.
  • 45 min Workshop on Embark (@michaelb )

They have also placed us on a panel:
Funding the Ecosystem & Incubator Initiatives - Suggested Ben - @ben - are you cool to join this panel? Despite the current state of Incubate, I think you cans till offer valuable insight here

Also another potential panel on the mass adoption of ethereum and the use of tools like Whisper to do that. @Nabil - would you be interested in sitting in on this panel?

convo also happening in #status-denver-planning

Great news, and I’m excited re: the 45 min workshop!
