Project SAFE: London


#1

Hi guys,

How many SAFE builders/enthusiasts are there in London?

I think it would be great to create a London meetup group for sharing our common interests! I was also thinking about possible SAFE Pod style workshops for introducing local devs to the API and helping them to get started on app development.

To gauge a potential interest please comment with your thoughts!

UPDATE: Let’s get the ball rolling: http://www.meetup.com/Project-SAFE-London/

I no longer live in London but do visit regularly so I might drop in now and again, maybe do a talk.


#3

Be good to have competition throughout the UK. Hope someone from the Bitcoin/IT community (Edinburgh) can make something happen in Scotland.


#4

If there is a desire for a meetup in Scotland, maybe MaidSafe should organise a MaidSafe meetup. Just putting the idea out there :smile:


#5

John, what kind of competition do you have in mind?


#6

My understanding is that for the platform to reach it’s full potential requires that the technology be separated/decentralised from Maidsafe Ltd, in essence, competing with the creators… the pods are the process for achieving this (if i’m correct).

All the best.

Would be nice to have a London event. Count me in.

Hi Andrius,

I would be up for meeting in London, I’m afraid I have no coding skills but perhaps I could listen at the back and get some direction on that.
Cheers
Al

I might be passing through London on the 23rd or 24th of January. I could give one or both of the lectures from the Safe Network from First Principles, we had great success in kickstarting many discussions with them in Montreal. I could also give them on the way back to Glasgow after my Europe tour, in April.

Hey Frontrow_Al,

No need for coding skill :slight_smile: Any input and brainstorming is welcome!


#12

Awesome idea, let’s keep in touch! How many people showed up for the lecture(s) in Montreal?


#13

It varied between 6-7 up to 30-40 with heavy promotion from @frabrunelle on Facebook, Meetup, and this forum and the support of the Bitcoin Embassy in Montreal.


#14

Do you think you’ll get a meetup going this week or I should aim to come in April instead?


#15

I think April would be the best, as then we would likely have a confirmed venue and word out! Thanks!


#16

Great! We will keep in touch then, let me know as soon as you have a venue sorted out, my travel plans are not set in stone so I might be able to come sooner!


#17

Absolutely, already on it! Thanks for your help and time.


#18

Thanks for everyone who commented and liked the post. Seems there is an interest for this to happen!
