Hey, this is Toya from Nervos! Devcon4 is coming up. Thanks to Julian of @EthereumJesus, I am now able put to together a complete guide to events around Devcon4 to help everyone navigate and make the most out of the Devon4 week in Prague.

Main Course: Devcon4.

So what is it?

Every year since Devcon0 in 2014, Ethereum Foundation has hosted developer conference, or Devcon. With the aim to “educate and empower” global blockchain community and share Ethereum protocol, tools and culture, this “annual Ethereum family reunion” has since become the most prominent blockchain development conference in the world. Builders of all kinds — designers, UX researchers, smart contract devs, blockchain researchers, client implementers, test engineers, infrastructure operators, community organizers, and even artists in the community gather for an opportunity to connect, learn and get “deeply technical”.

Devcon4 is happening in Prague from Oct 30th to Nov 2nd and is to be the largest of Devcons yet, with expected participants numbering more than 2700.

But the week is also so much more than just Devcon4!
