Nomadic Labs at Fosdem 2019
Fosdem is of the largest gatherings of Free and Open Source Developers
in Europe. It’s held every year in Brussels during the first weekend of February.
This year Nomadic Labs is involved in the organization of the
“Blockchain and Crypto-currencies devroom”, a one day workshop to
present Blockchain projects to the FOSS community.
We strongly believe in open source and we want to share our work with
the FOSS community at large.
We will also present our work on the Tezos project, in particular how
on-chain governance could help the sustainable organization of online communities.
The program is available on the Fosdem

In the last year, our team has grown rapidly to more than 30 permanent developers, coming from both academia and industry - many of whom hold a PhD in computer science fields. Among them, Pierre Boutillier,...
