Aves Lair will host an IRL networking event to kick off AvesHack NYC 2022 in New York starting at 11:00 am EST on Sept. 19, 2022. The event will be held at Flatiron Loft on Sept. 19 and 20. The anchor of the event will gather crypto leaders, operators, builders and investors to participate in a full two days of conversations with networking focused solely on the Move language in anticipation of Aptos’ mainnet launch.

More than 100 global developers will bring interactive discussions, live hands-on product demonstrations, and technical workshops to provide an opportunity for one-on-one meetings with leaders in the space. This will take place in a hybrid model where developers will focus their skills to work on their technology, APIs and subgraph, and it will be an interactive community event featuring growth and solutions in the ecosystem. All sessions will be live, posted then set for vial distribution to communities interested in the Aptos global hackathon. 

One of the highlights of AvesHack 2022 is a $100,000 prize pool. Winners of the online hackathon will be determined by a panel of judges that includes sponsors and industry leaders. Prizewinners will be announced one week after the event. In addition to cash prizes, the winners will receive one-on-one meetings with VCs, fast-tracked into the Aves Lair accelerator/incubation program and more. 

Additionally, Aves Lair is proud to present the Move Education series, which is designed as sessions for developers and teams to engage and learn the Move coding language. The series will be shown via four zoom sessions with Aptos training mentors explaining how to master the Move code for fast and efficient coding to support the Aptos developer ecosystem.

AvesHack NYC 2022 opportunities include

  • A dedicated session on Aves Lair’s TikTok, Twitter spaces, Meta/Instagram and YouTube
  • Each team will have the opportunity to share their project ethos to an engaged community 

Those wanting to participate in the virtual hackathon as a project competing for the $100,000 prize pool can register on Aves Lair’s website.

Our mission is to align ourselves with founders, developers, and funds in order to aggregate the community into a singular language that moves Aptos as well as Aves Lair toward the future,” said Francis Berwa, managing partner at Aves Lair.
