What is Blockchain? with Centrality

Unless you have been living under a rock, you will have heard of blockchain. Blockchain is one of the most important inventions since the Internet. It’s powering systems for supply chain, fintech, mobility, digital identity and yes, even trading virtual cats. But, what exactly is Blockchain? How does it work? And most importantly, how do you decide if it’s right for your idea or business?   Join us at the meetup to learn the ins and outs of this emerging technology and blockchain based projects happening around New Zealand. Hear from the industry experts from Centrality, Yabble, and Āhau, about their blockchain journey. We will also conduct an Ideathon, where our experts will show you how easy it is to get started on blockchain programming. So team up and design your very own blockchain application to win a prize for the best concept. Drinks and nibbles will be provided to accompany this brainstorming.

She#

Computer science, computer engineering, IT, and tech-related fields all battle a similar problem: gender imbalance. We believe this is mainly due to a misconception about these fields, and a pre-conception of who should study and work in this area. As there is already a low female-to-male ratio, people think this is the norm, and because of this, the situation remains this way.


She# has several missions.

We aim to link together women who are already in this field (in both academia and industry), and establish a platform to network with each other. It’s hard enough being a minority, but harder still if we can’t network with others in similar situations!


Secondly, it is our goal to influence the next generation for good; we wish to promote computer science and related fields to high school students who haven’t yet decided which career path to follow. If we can show young girls how exciting, interesting, and relevant computer science is to their lives, not to mention the massive potential job opportunities there are for them; we can provide positive influence and help young women make informed career decisions. We hope those women can surpass and change what is believed to be normal and take opportunities to work as equals alongside their male peers.


Lastly, by opening events to men we aim to educate them in why encouraging women of all ages and skills is important. We invite them to work side-by-side with us to advocate gender balance in the workplace.


We can change things, if we work together.
