Berlin Meetup 🇩🇪

There was an ink! meetup in Berlin, at Full Node! And it was not organized by us! Here's the lu.ma page.

The meetup was organized by Scio-Labs and Aleph Zero. There were maybe 15 people there. Amazing!

Scio-Labs has created two ink! related projects:

  • useInkathon: React Hooks library abstracting functionality of polkadot.js for working with ink! contracts.
  • INK!athon: Full-stack dApp boilerplate generator for ink! contracts + a React frontend using the useInkathon hooks library.
