Ignite presentation

Earlier this month, from July 12 - 16, Ignite was a partner at AwesomWasm 2023, the first-ever in-person conference and hackathon event dedicated to CosmWasm. And where better to host the event than the enchanting German capital Berlin, where Wasm’s origins began? Hosted by core CosmWasm contributors and Cosmos builders Confio and packed with teams from across the ecosystem, the event brought together some of the most brilliant minds in Cosmos today.

Throughout the week, attendees had the chance to meet other like-minded devs, network with core Cosmos teams, sharpen their skills in dedicated workshops and informative keynotes, and compete for rewards in high-stakes hackathons – all dedicated to learning and building with the CosmWasm language. On July 13, Ignite core dev Danilo Pantani gave a talk about Ignite, showcasing the latest developments on the Ignite stack.

The workshop ”Building Chains and Tools with Ignite” showed participants how to scaffold and launch their Cosmos blockchain app in web3 with Ignite and develop innovative custom plugins for the platform. Danilo also gave a glimpse into what’s coming to Ignite and what to get excited about in the months ahead.
