Launching Devcon Satellites!

What are Devcon Satellite Events?

:earth_americas: Devcon Satellite Events are an experiment to decentralize Devcon VI, to give the opportunity to foster a community amongst those who can’t make it to Bogotá due to distance, timing, costs, limited space, or other constraints, and to boost local Ethereum communities.

:pizza: Devcon Satellite Events can be just a simple get-together of friends watching the live streams with pizza, or bigger meetups to rewatch the keynote talks at a time that’s better suited for your community.

:calendar: These Satellite events should take place around Devcon Week: roughly 7-23 October 2022. They are self-organized and totally independent.

:unicorn: This idea is a result of a Devcon Improvement Proposal submitted by community member abcoathup.
