At the end of August we hosted a Blockchain 101 – Lunch and Learn event in Galvanize in San Francisco. It’s a very informal, easy going, educational lecture on an interesting topic. Our first one was on Blockchain. And of course we provide a delicious lunch.
Everyone is talking about Blockchain. You hear about Blockchain on the news and everywhere else. We think not many people understand what Blockchain is, how it works and what are the benefits. This exactly why we host these educational sessions. Plus, you need to eat lunch anyways.
We streamed the Blockchain 101 Lunch and Learn and below you will find links to the recordings (the same session broken into two “streams”).

About four weeks ago I officially became an IBMer! I joined as San Francisco City Lead for Developer Advocacy.
Some of you are probably wondering why IBM? IBM is big, slow and boring. IBM is very big but it’s not slow or boring. IBM is over a 100 years old and it has repeatedly reinvented itself over and over — in one of the most competitive spaces: technology. Not many companies have done that.
History is great but that’s still not the reason to join a company. Number one is the people. IBMers are like one big family. People are awesome and smart. Always ready to help. I will be working with a team of awesome developer advocates, we will be running educational workshops, attending meetups, conferences, hold office hours and everything in between. I will be working with teams who work with startups, enterprises, open source and education. I will also have a chance to work with VC companies, incubators and accelerators.
Our goal is to make you a better developer. We want to help you do your job faster and make your job easier. And that’s regardless if you go with IBM technology or not. Our job is to help you, the developer.
The second reason is the wide range of technologies and tools IBM has and has created. There are very few companies out there where you will be exposed to such wide range of technologies. We will be working on Watson, IoT, Containers, Blockchain, Serverless, Bluemix and other technologies.
It’s exciting and exciting time to be a developer!
Please reach out to say hi or if you think we can do something cool together.
