Neo Global Development has scheduled two new events as learning opportunities for participants of the Neo APAC Hackathon. The first event is a panel discussion on NFTs, while the second is a Python smart contract development workshop.

NFT panel

The NFT panel is scheduled for July 17th at 3:00 a.m. (UTC) and will be hosted on Neo’s Twitter Spaces. This event, titled “Redefining Value, Authenticity, and Digital Interactions”, aims to explore the latest trends, potential use cases, and future prospects of NFTs.

Leading the discussion will be marketing associate Rebecca from NGD, with special guests Steven Liu, tech lead at NGD, Carter Quan, team member at OKX Web3, and Rudy Rong, CEO at KaratDAO. The panel offers an opportunity for participants to gain insights from industry experts and community members on the transformative role of NFTs in the digital world.

Python workshop

Following the NFT panel, the hackathon will continue with its second in a series of workshops on July 18th at 12:00 p.m. (UTC). This workshop, delving into Python smart contract development, will be hosted by Erik van den Brink, a software developer from COZ. COZ is the maintainer of Neo’s Python tooling suite which include Mamba and Boa.

Held on the Neo YouTube channel, the session aims to guide attendees through the process of writing Neo smart contracts in Python, one of the most popular programming languages today. As with the previous Go workshop, the event is not exclusive to hackathon competitors, and any interested individuals are welcome to join in the learning experience.

The Neo APAC Hackathon

The Neo APAC Hackathon is an initiative designed to foster Web3 growth in the Asia-Pacific region. Running from July to October 2023, this event offers over $1,100,000 in prizes and grant funding. With virtual sessions, on-the-ground “GAS Stations” across five major cities, and a grand finale in Hong Kong, the Hackathon seeks to attract innovative Web3 startups to the Neo ecosystem.
