The Maths Behind Bitcoin
During this interactive talk you will learn about the fundamentals of the mathematics involved in Bitcoin and other similar cryptocurrency systems. Specifc topics covered will include Elliptic Curves and how to calculate a public key from a private key using maths. SPEAKER: Robin Cussol After completing a PhD in Mathematics, Robin decided to apply his logical mind to impact more people through software development. He now spends most of his time coding web and mobile applications, but still enjoys the odd occasion to do some maths and explain arcane symbols. --- This event is part of an ongoing series where we work together to create mobile and web applications. If you're interested in learning how professional programmers work on real projects, this is the event for you. Hint: It's not just about churning out lines of code. We go through the whole process from start to finish. We currently work with the following technologies: * React.js (client-side JavaScript web framework) * Node.js (server-side JavaScript platform) You can find our projects in our group's GitHub page: https://github.com/Learn-by-doing LOCATION: We will be meeting at Paralelni Polis, an alternative cafe which hosts many different events relating to creativity and technology. The event will be in the "CryptoLab" which is located in the basement below the cafe. If you have trouble finding us, just ask around - someone will know about us.

What we're about

This meetup group is for anyone who is interested in learning programming - whether you already have experience and would like to learn new things, or you're totally new and have no idea where to begin. This meetup aims to provide a chill atmosphere of learning and creativity, where you can learn useful skills necessary for professional programming.

We currently run two separate meetup series:

* Group programming (Mondays) - For anyone who is interested in advancing their existing programming skills. We work as a team on open source projects - peer code reviews, open discussion, self-learning, and pushing the boundaries of our skills and knowledge.

* Workshops (irregular schedule) - For beginner or intermediate skill levels. Each workshop is a guided walk-thru of a single topic, with Q&A during the workshop.

* Hacker-sprints (irregular schedule) - For intermediate to advanced skill levels. These full-day events are a great way to work in a group towards an achievable goal. A theme is decided for each event (e.g "Applications of the Lightning Network") then as a group we will pick from a few project ideas, do research, and try to build something.
