Resume of an exciting week: IOTA Argentina Community Cluster Meetup, office inauguration and meeting with ConcientizAR

Last week was very exciting here in Argentina as we held a Meetup with participation of ConcientizAR and Nicolas Schteinschraber (third prize winner at The Perfect Brainstorm). We also officialy inaugurated the IOTA Argentina Community Cluster office and had some great meetings with Ramiro Podetti and Néstor Vázquez from ConcientizAR in order to discuss future collaboration connecting the products they work on with the IOTA Protocol.

Exclusive Interview to Dave De Fijter

Dave joined the IOTA Foundation by July 2018 as Online Communiy Liaison and has been contributing since then to keep things sharp at Slack and Discord, key places for IOTA community to discuss different topics and organize itself. At certain point Slack ended up not being able to handle the vast IOTA community and Dave contributed planning the Slack-Discord migration.

Since he has a tech background (ICT Degree at Rotterdam University), he soon became developer advocate and started conducting Twitch sessions to guide users step by step on mounting a Full Node, Bootstraping IOTA’s Data Marketplace or creating testnets. This videos can be viewed at IF Youtube Channel.

Dave is a very kind and always willing to help guy. For us, this are the assets that make IOTA the great project it is and enable to have a growing community starting to adopt or developing. Enough talk, let’s get to meet him a bit better!
