NEO is hosting two events in Japan this weekend, one taking place in Tokyo on February 10th, and the other in Osaka on February 11th, 2018. The purpose of the events is to raise awareness and increase familiarity of the NEO platform in Japan.

The meet ups will host speakers from projects such as Hash Puppies and O3 Labs Inc. Da Hongfei, founder of NEO, is also scheduled to present.

The first event in Tokyo will begin with a developer workshop conducted by representatives from City of Zion (CoZ) at 4:00 PM. Da Hongfei is scheduled to make a brief greeting and launch the event. Following Hongfei, Andrei Terentiev and Apisit Toompakdee, co-founders of O3 Labs Inc, will give introduction to O3. After the presentation, Andrei and Apisit will provide an in-depth development tutorial on the NEO open source platform.

A meet up will follow the developer workshop, which will be moderated by Yuki Takano, of Walk the World.
