BitDevs is a group tailored towards software/hardware developers interested in the Bitcoin protocol--you can be well versed or new to programming, all technically inclined are welcome.
Meetings begin with Bitcoin-related announcements gathered and presented by the organizer; comments and questions are welcome during this period. Following announcements, meetings will follow a discussion style format, with topics being guided by attendees. 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 organizer if you'd like to present. We go out for dinner after as well.
We will begin meetings as a single group, although small group discussions sometimes occur organically about halfway through the meetup. Nothing is set in stone, we like to keep things open. Again, all are welcome but be advised: discussion will get technical ;)
Links to topics discussed are in the comments section of each meetup.
