Managing Software engineers and IT programs is hard work! Being successful requires a growth mindset, continual professional development, and a support network of peers facing the same problems. There should be a forum where IT managers can learn from others to tackle common management issues and continue their professional development. This meet up is a place where IT managers can come together to build relationships, progress in their field, and learn new techniques from people who have been in IT leadership positions. Come ready to listen, learn, and engage with other managers struggling with similar issues.

Gods Unchained, Ethereum Laptop Game

Wednesday, Mar 4, 2020

6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Code Fellows

Bring your Windows or Mac laptop to play Gods Unchained or just your smartphone to practice Ethereum blockchain and card transfers. You can also just come to watch and mingle. Each of the three sessions will start by helping beginners get started with blockchain wallets, game installation, and free cards. We’ll then try playing some games in solo or vs. modes. We’ll buy/sell/trade some cards(many are 5-25 cents value each), discuss deckbuilding, and play strategy. If time permits, we’ll use some bitcoin, and talk about other blockchain topics. Some walk to a beer in Belltown after the meetup. Gods Unchained is a card game like Magic the Gathering, but cards are owned on the blockchain. You can buy, sell, or give cards away to other blockchain users for any price without consent of the publisher, just like physical cards.
