Description

Join Fidelity Center for Applied Technology (FCAT) for a Two-Day Hands-on Bitcoin Developing Workshop.

In this introduction workshop, both instructors will cover the fundamentals of bitcoin and in general permissionless blockchains. Over the two-days, each morning will focus on the theoretical underpinnings of how (and why) something like Bitcoin works and in the afternoon participants will get hands-on coding experience to better understand Bitcoin under the hood (and how to build on top of it).

The workshop will be held on Monday September 30th from 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM Ireland Time and Tuesday October 1st from 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM Ireland Time in Dublin.

Main Prerequisite:

- Programming experience only - a curiosity about bitcoin helps!

Time Commitment:

- 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM Ireland Time both days

Topics that will be covered include:

- Nakamoto consensus

- UTXO transaction model

- Applied cryptography and zero knowledge proofs

- Problems with on-chain scaling for public (and permissionless) blockchains

- Lightning network and off-chain protocols

- New proposals by the community to extend bitcoin's smart contract capability (which includes taproot)

- Generally, both instructors have a background in security engineer and distributed systems, so participants will look at all topics with an adversarial mindset.
