Dr Arshad Talk

During the last part of the meetup, Dr. Arshad from HEC conclude the session in his own style;

During his talk, Bilal Arshad also joined us from UK to share few details about the second Blockchain Hackathon.

Let’s have a look at the video from the live sessions here;

Then finally we had the group photo of fourth SIG Meetup;

We also had some free food, that leads to a detailed networking session in which we share thoughts with each other.

So, that’s how we conclude our fourth meetup… : – )

At this point, I really want to mention our SPINN LABS team who really worked hard with me to organize this event at this scale, specifically Sehrish Fatima, Ammar Zaib, Umer Mirza and most importantly Hashim Barraq who truly guide me at every step. I also want to thanks Jawad Ahmed for his great support from the Operations to organize everything in time. Also our event ambassadors including “Muntasir Ali” and “Hamza Fayyaz” who really help us during the execution of each activity during the meetup.

For me, the best thing was to see the smile on everyone face at the end of the meetup. Most of them were going back with something new in their hands. Although few new things were identified that need to perform from the next meetup which I'm going to plan. : - )
