On Thursday, 3rd November we were delighted to host the Intro to Optimism workshop for the Metaverse Hackathon sponsored by OpenSea and Optimism and powered by Encode Club. This was the first workshop of the hackathon and its goal was to introduce people to the Optimism chain.
Big thanks to Joanna Zeng and Ori Pomerantz for hosting this workshop and helping our hackers learn!
🎓 The event focused on the technical aspects of Optimism, its ecosystem, bridge, relationship with Ethereum and more.
