BitDevs DC is an effort to coordinate with the BitDevs NYC meetup to spur interest in the DC software/hardware development community. We will use the NYC meetup as a template. Meetings will begin with Bitcoin related announcements gathered and presented by the organizers. Discussions will cover subjects such as: Bitcoin improvement proposals, testnet, alternative Bitcoin implementations, core development current events (bitcoin-development mailing list, bitcoin github repo issues, #bitcoin-dev etc...), alt. cryptocurrency development, building/modifying Bitcoin-related software/hardware (clients, mining software, mining rigs, mobile wallets, exchanges, trading bots, arbitrage exploitation, Bitcoin marketplaces, ATMs, etc...), security, scalability, Bitcoin contracts, colored coins/smart property, regulatory compliance scripting, alternative uses for the underlying Bitcoin technology and so so much more. To complete the meeting, attendee presentations are welcome and encouraged! Email the organizers if you'd like to present.
