For its April event, NEO Colorado hosted its first developer-oriented workshop in Denver, Colorado. Alex Fragapane of NEO-ONE was the instructor for the evening and delivered a presentation on the structure and design of a simple token smart contract.

The workshop was held at the Galvanize Platte Campus and hosted a handful of participants. Of those in attendance, the majority had not yet developed a smart contract.

The event was live-streamed and recorded by Daniel Glauser of Dazzling.Media, who is a blockchain developer by day and event videographer by night.

Fragapane began his presentation by briefly offering an overview of the tutorials and references on the NEO-ONE website. After the introduction, he conducted a “follow along if you can” style presentation which included defining addresses, establishing token amounts, and testing the code throughout the process.

One attendee remarked on the buildout of the NEO-ONE environment and iterated “I wish I worked in an environment like this.” Another attendee commented on Fragapane’s understanding of NEO-ONE, stating he’d “never seen that [coding] proficiency live before.”

On the same evening of Tuesday the 23rd, NEO-ONE concurrently hosted a developer workshop in Seattle, US. The topic of discussion in the Seattle workshop focused on building a dApp, which included a demo by NEO-ONE founder Alex DiCarlo.
