cLabs would like to invite the entire Celo community to attend the virtual conference and hackathon for ETHDenver starting this weekend!

ETHDenver is free for you to attend and come visit our booth in the Shill Zone C section. You will be transported from your computer to an awesome virtual conference in 3D, where you can interact with fellow Celo community members, including folks from the cLabs team.

We have a group of Celo talks, AMAs, and bounties lined up for the week for you to take part in.

Our Friday kicks off with a back-to-back session with founder & CTO, Marek Olszewski and super Celo Core Dev, James Prestwich. We then join developer experience and relations engineers Barbara Liau, Jarrell James, and Yaz Khoury on Monday to talk about #MobileFirstEverything

Be sure to join our AMA on Wednesday, where we will talk about the Plumo protocol and zkSNARK Ceremony. In this AMA, we will cover our experience participating in the weekly round of the Plumo setup, with the goal to secure the SNARK for the Plumo ultra-light client for mobile devices.
