MetaCartel Demo Day Agenda

MetaCartel’s Berlin Blockchain Week Community Conference

“I am telling you, next year — we will have our own conference.” — Marek Kirejczyk (2018 Devcon Prague)

I shook my head in amused disbelief, brushing it off as a joke.

But now, here we are.

MetaCartel is evolving. We aren’t just a community anymore, we have become an entire ecosystem of communities. This year our MetaCartel Demo Day (19th August) will be kicking off Berlin Blockchain Week.

With presentations and workshops, our community conference will be focused on the theme of:

The discovered insights we have acquired through shipping Web 3.0 products to end users 😺📲🙇‍♂️


How to run your first usability test & all the ways you can listen to your users 🙋‍♀️👂🌏

Understanding your audience is paramount if you want to build a successful product. We will go over the basics of UX research, discuss what tools and techniques you can use to validate whether you are building the right thing. We will walk through everything you need to know to set up your first usability test. This a hands-on workshop. You’ll leave with feedback on the application you’re working on and materials to collect more.

L2 dapp scalability tradeoffs & approaches by example 🚀🛠🏃‍♂️

In this workshop, we’ll explore the various ways you can scale up your dapp through various code examples. We will dive the practicalities of how to implements these solutions for your dapp and you’ll leave with an understanding of how to tackle scalability for your own dapp.

Enabling web 2.0 users to engage with your dapp ⛽️📲💫

In this workshop, we will dive into how you can implement meta transactions (meta-txs) into your dapp to engage with users that don’t have any gas. In this session, expect a dive through on the possibilities of this solution, how it is used as well as how to implement it.

Enabling Decentralised UIs, Backends, and Databases ⚡️💾🌀

Modern DApps still use centralized backends for complex business logic, data storage, and UIs. At the workshop, we will learn how to make your DApp’s completely decentralized by hosting it in an open, decentralized cloud
