Connecting the IT community with DevTalks

DevTalks is the largest IT conference in Romania which connects developer communities from all over the country, giving them the opportunity to network, learn and explore topics approached by key local and international experts in the field. Since 2014, DevTalks has grown into an ideal environment for the IT community to connect and discuss the hottest trends in technology as well as an opportunity to interact with emerging startups and key players in tech. The previous editions of DevTalks gathered over 2,500 developers, entrepreneurs, investors, and industry leaders all with the same goal in mind: to attend an event designed for IT enthusiasts and lay the foundation for a tight-knit community of developers.

Modex at DevTalks

Modex will be represented at DevTalks by Florin Otto, who will take the stage during the Emerging Tech conference to share his in-depth knowledge of blockchain technology with the audience. A keen blockchain enthusiast, Otto will illustrate how blockchain technology can have a deep impact on established business models, as well as emerging industries, underlining the technology’s potential to become the invisible framework which supports society. Of course, all this potential means that blockchain related skills are highly sought after in the market, and as time passes the demand will only go up.

With respect to this, Otto will showcase the Modex Developer Platform, an ecosystem purposefully tailored to answer all the needs of developers who wish to develop for the blockchain. The ecosystem encompasses a custom-made toolkit made by developers for developers with the goal to unify all the tools necessary for blockchain development in a single place. Florin Otto will be joined by Dan Popescu, Software Tech Lead at Modex, who will also be present at the Modex exhibition booth. An expert in blockchain development, Dan will gladly discuss with visitors eager to learn more about blockchain and will answer their questions. Due to his expertise, he is the ideal person to reveal what it really means to develop for the blockchain, to offer useful tips and tricks, and to highlight the requirements needed to start working with this technology.

In the spotlight: Modex Academy

A common issue faced by the industry is that many people still use blockchain and Bitcoin interchangeably, associating this technology with cryptocurrency only. To help correct this issue, Otto will present Modex Academy, a project which in its initial stages aims to help the tech uninitiated to clarify this severe misunderstanding and help them build a solid foundation of the core concepts and inner workings of blockchain technology. Sitting at the forefront of disruption, Modex bridges the gap between the development community and the real world. At Modex, we empower developers to build DApps that are simple to use and make the complexity of the blockchain and smart contracts more accessible to everyone. In essence, we are solving the last mile problem of the blockchain: the adoption.
