#FutureisNEAR: Crypto-Prototyping Series--Part 4 (Building the Future)

Join us for a multi-day journey from ideation to deployment of your decentralized app on the NEAR blockchain. We will come up with ideas for dApps based on a taxonomy of possible blockchain use cases, then work together to create and deploy working prototypes in a hands-on workshop. We will finish off the series by exploring ways we can support each other to take our projects into the real world beyond dWeb camp.

Hopes & Dreams
We would love to get a cadre of hacker-organizers and hacker-entrepreneurs building apps on the NEAR blockchain. We also want to be the base-level protocol that supports a huge number of practical, 'get your hands dirty' projects that walk the balance between gaining mainstream adoption and enabling socially-regenerative technologies to take root in the world. Our hope is that by supporting a bunch of people to prototype their dream apps at dWeb camp that we can seed some of those projects so that they then continue to build them in the real world.

Anyone can participate. You will need a laptop, particularly for the prototyping session. Experience with Javascript is ideal but not necessary, and coding experience is very relevant but you can still join in if you don't have coding experience. Kids are welcome as long as they are interested in participating in discussions and being involved in designing and programming.

Why Participate?
Join us if you would like to connect with others who are frustrated by unnecessary and overhyped blockchain projects and want to focus on projects that actually use the core aspects of blockchains to enable new social realities. Join if you want to write a blockchain smart contract in Typescript, and without making your users immediately deal with the complexities of private keys. Join if you want motivation to create the idea that has been in the back of your mind for a while and support from other builders to take your project back into the world at the end of dWeb camp.
