RBF Labs + Agoric: How to start coding on Agoric & JS smart Contracts: Launch a token Martin Vejmelka Our workshop is targeted toward developers that have never deployed a smart contract. During the workshop, we will explain Agoric's unique approach to smart contracts, where composable components prevent some security/safety bugs from the get-go, and briefly compare it to other solutions. During the workshop, you will deploy, update and re-deploy a smart contract that mints tokens and learn how to offer safety that puts the user in control. After the workshop, you should be comfortable with key Agoric concepts and with the development pipeline for Agoric smart contracts.

Take your first step into the Cosmos Ecosystem and join the #IBCGang with Cosmos SDK.

Building the Interchain: From consensus to trustless interoperability Callum Waters The Interchain is a growing ecosystem of sovereign, interconnected blockchains and services that contribute to a new paradigm of communication, governance, and value creation.

Prague

Prague

In 2021, Prague was voted the most beautiful city in the world according to timeout.com.

Explore the rich history of the Czech capital as well as modern architecture and ambitious artists, whose work is presented throughout the city. Experience the atmosphere of the Heart of Europe.

Here are the Top 5 places to visit in Prague.
Prague Castle

Prague Castle

If you want to see one thing in Prague, it is Prague Castle! From the first kings of Bohemia to our current president, the history of Czech lands was written from this place. Visit the old rooms of the castle, St. Vitus Cathedral, or walk through the Golden Lane, the history will be all around you.

More info
Old Town Square

Old Town Square

Old Town Square (“Staroměstské náměstí”) is the Prague you’ve seen in pictures. The mechanical wonder of the 15th-century Astronomical Clock impresses with both its exterior beauty and maintained functionality. Look closely at the twin towers of the Gothic Church of Our Lady before Týn, whose decades of construction delays resulted in spires aren’t actually identical. A towering statue of martyred religious leader Jan Hus and his followers dominates the center of the cobblestoned square.

More info
Vyšehrad

Vyšehrad

According to ancient legends, Vyšehrad is the oldest seat of Czech princes; in fact, the local settlement was established in the mid-10th century. Situated on a rocky promontory above the Vltava River, it offers stunning views of the city, and the park area holds hidden architectural treasures including the rare Romanesque Rotunda of St Martin, the neo-Gothic Church of Sts Peter and Paul, the national cemetery Slavín, and the underground casements housing the some of the original Baroque statues from the Charles Bridge.

More info
Kampa

Kampa

Kampa Island is an island on the Vltava river in central Prague on the side of Malá Strana. Charles Bridge crosses its northern tip and is connected to the island by the street Na Kampě. Various sightseeing points are located at Kampa: the oldest mill in Prague, the Museum of Fine Arts and Lennon Wall – popular site of international tourists. Once a normal wall, since the 1980s it has been filled with John Lennon-inspired graffiti and pieces of lyrics from Beatles' songs.

More info
Náplavka Riverbank

Náplavka Riverbank

Náplavka is a name of the part of riverbank under the Jiráskův bridge where are several bars and restaurants. Recently renovated riverbank in the centre of the city quickly became very popular among Prague citizens and tourists. With the first warm days many people come here for a walk along the river or have a beer and dance.
