NEO DevCon & Free Backpacks for SCET Students & our Community

Jocelyn Weber Phipps   |   February 1, 2018


The Blockchain Lab’s sponsor, NEO, a non-profit community developing the smart economy on blockchain, held their first DevCon this past week in San Francisco at the Intercontinental Hotel.  Speaker topics ranged from new solutions for decentralized databases for dApps (Bluzelle) to mobile wallets for the NEO economy (O3).  There was even a “NEO Anthem” performed by the rapper Hashbrown.  The conference was very well attended with numbers estimated as high as 700 developers, investors and exhibitors.

NEO has generously donated 250 backpacks from the conference, along with a variety of sweatshirts and caps to SCET for students.  Any remaining items will be donated to support local community, non-profit organizations.  SCET students are welcome to come by the Sutardja Center at the Stadium to put a NEO backpack or sweatshirt to good use.
