Description

We have two talks for PHPDorset's July 3rd meet up at County Gates:

The first is from Jonathon Clark

Bitcoin and Blockchain Basics
Learn about the fundamentals of the Blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies, covering the basics of what they are, how to buy them, how mining works, and how the blockchain works.

We also have a talk from Chris Sherry

Interactive Festival Map - A Personal Project
At one of Mobile Dorset's lean coffee sessions, there was a conversation about a way to show a user's location ontop of an image - that image being a map for a theme park or event. Off the back of that conversation I went on to build a prototype with javascript and test it in a real world situation for the Teddy Rocks Festival. This talk shares my thought process, decisions, challenges and what I learnt from the project. I'd love to discuss my approach and share ideas on how to move the project forward for next year.

Also the usual pizza, beers and conversation, all for free!
