I am personally looking forward to Kimberly Bryant’s LiveWorx keynote speech, she has done a great deal introducing girls and women of colour into technology. Nir Eyal is someone I hadn’t heard of and I am keen to acquire his book as well as listen to his address. The BlockDown 2020 will hopefully give me a thorough education on the blockchain sphere. I’m eager to learn about a number of sectors of the industry I wasn’t aware of, the current trends as well as the projections of where the industry is going.
