BitDevs is a group tailored towards those 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:

Our socratic events are formatted to foster debate, information sharing and lively discussion. The first half of the event is dedicated to discussion topics that cover subjects such as: Bitcoin core development (e.g. bitcoin-development mailing list, pull requests, #bitcoin-dev, BIPs), weekly network statistics, building/modifying Bitcoin related software/hardware, scalability, smart contracts, attack vectors of the Bitcoin protocol, alternative uses for blockchains, and many other related topics in the Bitcoin/crypto ecosystem.  To complete the meeting, members present their open source projects, companies, research and other relevant materials. A feedback and Q&A section follow. A newsletter is sent out the day of the event which outlines discussion topics.

Please contact the organizers if you'd like to present at a future event or have a recommended topic for discussion.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
