Overview of Handycon Event - What to Expect

We are super excited for the first ever Handshake conference - Handy Con - happening in just a few days.

This is a quick overview of what to expect

in almost what people are calling a flash / popup event.

It is just an example of how awesome and engaged the Handshake community is!

We are using Airmeet for the conference, and it is totally free for attendees with a couple amazing and supportive sponsors. We will try our best to stream it to Clubhouse for the audio version - but definitely register for the event on Airmeet - as we will have video on and some may even share screen and do demos.

3 Phases of the Event

There are now 3 phases of this event to meet all the different timezones and schedules - all in the same event.

  • Round Table and Networking

    We most likely will leave the event room open before and after the phases for the round table sessions so people can network and meet new people in the community throughout the 2 days.

  • Speaker sessions

    We told most speakers no need to create a powerpoint – but do encourage them to come on video as well as audio. Almost all will be presenting live, with more shy and/or anonymous people providing pre-recorded content but there for question and answer.

  • Majority will be panels and interactive

    Most will be panels, as we think this is the best way for the community to engage, and keep it from being a bit boring and/or sales-y.

Moderators will try their best to make it equal for all panelists.  We are also trying to balance the community with international community members and various companies and even outside of the Handshake ecosystem.

A time to make collaborations and deals

We want people to be able to put the barriers down and talk about collaboration. We hope to integrate with more services in the internet and create more win win collaboration for THE END user, those surfing the internet, in mind.

While this was put together on a rather last minute short notice, we see an amazing response of people to speak, share, promote, and attend.

Each one of you participating is showing the world there is a real need and a real community to support the Dweb - the decentralized internet.

While sessions will be recorded, we do hope you can attend live. There will be real time, networking, and more. Plus some deals for sure and other fun activities.

And TLD auctions to wrap up each session.

See you there - free, with timezones for everyone around the world - so no excuses!
