BitDevs is a group tailored towards software/hardware developers interested in the discussion and development of the Bitcoin protocol, decentralized consensus mechanisms, cryptography, infosec and open source fintech. You can be well versed with or new to the topics, all are welcome.

Socratic Style Meetups:

Meetings begin with Bitcoin related announcements gathered and presented by the organizer; comments, questions and discussion are encouraged during this period. Meetings follow a discussion style format, with topics that cover subjects such as: core development current events (bitcoin-development mailing list, pull requests, #bitcoin-dev, BIPs etc...), weekly network statistics, building/modifying Bitcoin related software/hardware, scalability, smart contracts, shortcomings of the Bitcoin protocol, alternative uses for block chains , etc.... To complete the meeting, members present their open source projects, companies, research and other relevant materials.

Email the organizer if you'd like to present. All are welcome but be advised: discussion will get technical.
