Cardano Buidler Fest #1

Buidl together

A 2-day event for tech-savvy Cardano builders to connect, showcase and share.

You enjoy starring at a black screen for hours and still can't figure out good variable names? Join us!


Day 1 :: Presentations

Focused on demos, project presentations and techniques. No keynotes, no vendor booths. Only builders living the moment and many opportunities for the Cardano community to showcase its amazing work.

Are you a developer who enjoys writing code? Want to learn or share some coding techniques? Want to discuss the latest smart-contract development trends? Do you prefer fiddling with infrastructure? Are you designing user interfaces for DApps?

This is the time. Whether you want to give a talk, run a workshop, or organize something lighter, our Call for Proposals awaits you.


Speakers are only provisional until they confirm their respective sessions. See the agenda for details.

Day 2 :: Open Space

Hands-on! We’ll start the day with a big Open Space and co-create the track for the day.

Feel like hacking on something for a day?

Or perhaps, contributing to some open-source project(s) of the ecosystem?

This will be ours to decide and to collectively design the day. Three working spaces will be available to let the magic happen. Make sure to bring your gears.
