Last week the AGILE project team was in Berlin for a face-to-face meeting and for the GETDecentralized event. Here is a brief recap of what happened.
Day 1 & 2: Face-to-Face
The team met July 20 and 21. It was great to see the familiar faces and discuss in person again! There were many fruitful discussions and great demos presented by each partner. We’re well on our way after half a year and we look forward to sharing more details with you very soon!
Day 3 & 4 – GetD Event
The GETDecentralized event took place July 22 and 23. Some of the Agile partners stayed to speak at the event or to attend and take part in the discussions. Together with the other attendees, we discussed the hottest topics of the decentralized web and the Internet of Things (IoT). There were many great speakers, exchange of knowledge, and on the second day attendees got to hack on solutions they are passionate about.

There were also two other panels featuring our very own AGILE members Juan David Parra in the “Identity with Solid & Blockchain” panel and Fabio Antonelli in the “Why Decentralizing IoT?” panel. Full program.
During the event, the Adaptation competition for artists was launched by Carla Hubbard and Philippe Krief. Submissions are now open and the main event will take place in Berlin next summer. The goal is to demonstrate the coexistence of art and technology, while utilizing the Internet of Things (IoT) as means to sense and visualize both the physical and the virtual world. The Adaptation competition is open for artists and engineers to work together to blend art and technology. If you’d like to learn more or get involved read more here.
Finally, we’d like to thank everyone who attended both events. It was great to put our heads together to move the AGILE project forward at the face-to-face meeting and to share our initiative at the GetD event. A even bigger thank you to Jolocom and the Agora Collective for hosting these events!
