As part of the Swarm Beta release online event we are organizing a workshop focusing on Swarm and the Bee client.

Date & duration of the workshop

Who is this workshop for

This workshop is suitable for anybody who is interested in Swarm. The workshop will highlight both the visionary and the technical aspects of Swarm. The actual coding part is doable for anybody even with limited knowledge of the command line.

What you’ll learn

This workshop is the first one of Swarm’s upcoming series of workshops. At these events Swarm team members will walk you through everything you need to know about Swarm, the Bee client and how to work with it.
