My name is Adam Rusch and I’m one of the organizers of the Champaign (IL) Blockchain Meetup group. We are an autonomous group but loosely associated with the University of Illinois Research Park and Association for Computer Machinery chapter. This is a general crypto interest group that tries to look at different topics each month that members would be interested in. While I have personally been into Cardano for a couple years now we have not yet featured this platform for one of our meetups.
The reason I’m posting is because we feel that this is the proper time to introduce Cardano to our community with the launch of Shelley. I’m hoping to find a good speaker who could join us via Zoom, as our events are forced to be virtual right now due to virus restrictions. Perhaps there would be a developer available or a Stake Pool operator who could share their experiences.
Ideally, I think it would be great to find a couple good candidates to line up someone both for this month and next month (and perhaps beyond). If anyone can recommend a good candidate I would greatly appreciate the help!
