Modex took center stage at the 6th edition of DevTalks Bucharest, an event which gathered over 2500 IT professionals from Romania and abroad. On the Emerging Tech stage, Florin Otto, VP of product at Modex, together with Dan Popescu, Software Tech Lead, held a keynote on blockchain technology.
Held in June every year, DevTalks Bucharest becomes, for two days, a stage for the most powerful network of software developers in Romania where the most important local and international key-leaders from the industry connect to the latest trends in technology and contribute to the future of the tech industry. DevTalks 2019 managed to surpass previous editions in scope and dimension, welcoming over 100 international and local speakers with 12 curated conferences targeting some of the hottest topics in the tech world: Dev Ops, Emerging Technologies, Web, Smart Everything, Java, SAP Tech, Product Management, Digital Transformation, QA&Testing, Mobile, Security, Big Data & Cloud.
The two-day event welcomed an abundance of people, developers, IT professionals, students, entrepreneurs and millennials to a wide variety of interactive and fascinating demos, presentation booths and case studies, where they’ve discussed and learned more about innovative technologies and their real-world application.
Modex was represented at the event by Florin Otto, VP of product, and Dan Popescu, Software Tech Lead, who were on a mission to debunk common myths and misconceptions regarding blockchain, and share their knowledge with participants eager to learn more about the disruptive capabilities of a technology which positions itself as one of the main actors in the upcoming technological revolution. To achieve this goal, Modex representatives set up an exhibition stand, welcoming people interested to discover more about blockchain. “People showed real interest towards the technology, and a large majority were eager to find out how they can get hands-on experience with blockchain. We guided them to the Modex Platform, where they can use our tools to experiment and familiarize themselves with blockchain development”, stated Dan Popescu.
On the second day of the event, Florin Otto and Dan Popescu took the stage during the Emerging Technologies conference and hosted a keynote on blockchain, during which they showcased a general overview of the technology, its main features and the inner workings that makes them possible. The keynote offered a glimpse at the history of the technology, and the different generations of blockchain that appeared over the years, illustrating how each iteration expanded the scope and functionality. The first generation of blockchain, represented by Bitcoin, started the cryptocurrency craze, the second generation of blockchains, Ethereum, saw a shift to a switch army knife approach, and an explosion in the functionality dimension with the emergence of smart contracts and DApps. And the third generation of blockchains which aim to solve scalability, interoperability and sustainability issues. The last segment of the presentation underlined how enterprise-grade blockchains and the value it can add to companies and businesses. “I am delighted to say that during the Q&A session that followed our keynote the audience approached us with various questions, regarding the internal mechanism of blockchain and the applicability of the technology in the real world. I’d like to congratulate the hosts for doing an excellent job organizing the event, and for giving us the opportunity to spread the blockchain message further”, added Florin Otto.
