On the Easter Weekend of 2019, ETHGlobal held its first hackathon on the African Continent: ETHCapeTown. And judging by the feedback I’ve received, it was a resounding success. You can read ETHCapeTown’s full write-up on the Medium page here, but I decided to get in touch with the CEO of Linum Labs, the local partner for the event, to find out first hand how it went down.
Officially with 190 Attendees, 8+ Sponsors, 6 Judges and 33 project submissions, Devon said her and her team were absolutely delighted with how it all turned out.
According to Devon Krantz, CEO (Chief Ecosystem Officer) at Linum Labs, her only regret is having it over the Easter Weekend, citing the fact that she believes more people would have attended the hackathon. Devon confirmed that they are already planning ETHCapeTown 2020, and said to keep an eye on the Linum Labs and ETHCapeTown Twitter accounts for official announcements.
Check out the interview I did with Devon just two days after ETHCapeTown:
