It took place in the Congress Center between 30th of October and 2nd of November 2018 and associated meetups took place also at our Danube House within the wider Blockchain Week Prague event. Thanks to the development of Ethereum iOS DevKit we were one of the official grantees, we had two talks during the conference and we were in the center of action during the whole week.

In Ackee we focus on smart solutions that facilitate our work and our clients to ensure a better outcome.

I wish you a pleasant and inspiring reading!

Like any technology enthusiast as an obligation during his visit to California is to explore the famous Silicon Valley . Not only that I wonder where they produce products and services that I use every day and hundreds of millions of other people, but since we are dealing in Ackee with our new office , I also took a little inspiration ( haha ) 🙂 .
