The event came to our attention thanks to some friends who are organizers from TU Vienna. Given the technical focus of the event and the contributive spirit of Nimiq, we decided to support the project as a Platinum Sponsor.

Nimiq at the event

As a sponsor, we get the special opportunity of presenting Nimiq at the conference. The summer school, code name #BDLT19, is one of the most interesting conferences of the year for Nimiq to give an in-depth explanation of Albatross to an experienced audience of engineers and researchers. Not only is Pascal, Blockchain Developer of Nimiq, giving a talk about Albatross, but Nimiq will also have a workshop for attendees to get their hands on Nimiq. In the workshop, we will teach attendees to interact with the blockchain directly using JavaScript.

Schedule of the event. Nimiq’s presentation will take place Wednesday 4
