Help prepare the foundation for our future

The world is changing. We must ready ourselves.

We must act as one

Mission and Purpose > Logos and Division. It's time we come together for a common purpose.

This isn’t a conference for passive bystanders

Bring yourself, bring your knowledge, and bring a thirst for the unknown. This is co-creation and collaboration – everyone has something to contribute.

Do you want to help build a better future?

Limited participation is available; developers and builders of the decentralized web will gain priority access.

This event has ended. Registration and content submissions are now closed.

Our Ethos

Collaboration

We're all working towards the same greater vision. In order to encourage new technologies and ideas to blossom, we encourage you to work alongside and support every community contributing to the growth of the decentralized web. Less shilling, more building!

Co-creation

We believe in the principles of free software and open source, where groups of people who come together to share technology, skills and ideas produce the most impactful results.

Participation, Presence and Immediacy

We aim to create interactions that facilitate collaborative knowledge and enable you to construct new ideas with people from around the world. Dive in, be present, and build!

F.A.Q.s

What is this?

This is an interactive, immersive virtual event which contains talks, workshops and rants by everyone from well-known speakers to community-sourced contributors. Think of it as the intersection between a hackathon, a conference, a masterclass seminar and a vaguely anarchist festival for developers and builders of a decentralized web. The content will help you learn how to build decentralized applications using the next generation of layer 1 protocols by giving you the chance to get your hands dirty with specific examples and real code in a live format.

How is this different than a normal online conference?

There will be no passive bystanders, there will be no lurking. In this event, everyone is expected and encouraged to create, contribute, discuss and learn. Talks and workshops are targeted towards builders and grounded in participation. There will be unannounced sessions and easter egg experiences occurring during the event as well.

How can I speak?

Submit your content and then community will vote on what they want to see. We will pick the content with the most votes. Additionally, even if you are not selected, you are still encouraged to host a modified version of your content during open Session times in the event!

How do I get a ticket?

Show us your dedication to building the future. This can mean...

  • Filling out the Register Now! form and putting in content that showcases your past work: github, threads, blog posts, etc. Or just write us a paragraph if your work isn't already public.
  • Interacting with one of the many challenges that are being put out from NEAR, Polkadot, Protocol Labs, Tezos, Celo and
    Solana
  • Contributing content. Got an idea for a discussion, AMA, fireside chat, roundtable or workshop? Submit your content
  • Don't see a way that works for you? Email us at get@readylayer.one with how you'd like to participate.

How much does this cost?

The cost is active participation, not cash! Free tickets will be available for developers and builders who can display proof of work in contributing to the decentralized web.

Who is hosting this?

Cosmos, NEAR, Polkadot, Protocol Labs, Tezos, Celo and
Solana

How do I get in touch?

get@readylayer.one OR join the community telegram

When and where?

May 4th-6th, 2020 via the Hopin Platform

Why?

Now more than ever, it's clear that collaboration is more important than competition. With in-person events cancelled around the world, we wanted to provide a different kind of online space where developers can learn, build and grow community around themselves. As the underlying infrastructure of this ecosystem, the participating projects want to create an opportunity for the people who will build on top of this technology to see what's truly possible.
