Our community and events team is working tirelessly to bring people together and create amazing things on Holochain. As always, we would like to give our appreciation to all the community organisers without whom it would be not possible to create this magic! Many events are conducted virtually to respect the #SocialDistancing, so nothing is stopping you to participate!
Interested in building a hApp? Join Holochain Forum and start your journey!
Check out our upcoming events section and come along. Everyone’s welcome!
We hope you’ve enjoyed this month’s short news collection and we will catch you next month!
Wondering How Can You Help?
In the next few weeks we will be opening up more and more ways for our community to participate. Here is what you can do now and how you can prepare to move forward with Holo and Holochain.
hApp Devs: Install Holochain, hop on the Holochain Forum, attend online meetups, and connect with other teams of devs who are beginning to write new apps in Holochain. Look for updated design specs for core open source hApps that we all need for moving the ecosystem forward.
Hosts: Get on the Holo Forum and start finding 2–3 other hosts that are in aligned time zones and coordinate some testing times. Respond to any survey or sign up requests for team testing when you receive the links.
Marketers and Biz Dev Folks: Create channels on the Holochain Forum and reach out to our growth team about 3rd party grants you think are perfect for distributed app/ distributed infrastructure projects you are excited to develop.
Writers: Contribute to the developer.holochain.org site and to our blogs for both Holochain and Holo. Do you have a submission you’d like to make? Reach out to email@example.com.
Graphic Designers and Animators: Help Holo and Holochain share complicated messages that are more digestible, and more fun! Share cool related design projects with us — like this Animated Holo Cloud by sending links to firstname.lastname@example.org (projects should be open-source or commons licensed).
