BitDevs is a community for those interested in discussing and participating in the research and development of Bitcoin and related protocols. You can be well versed with or new to the topics, all are welcome. Be advised: discussion will be technical.

This meetup is the Raleigh/Durham chapter of BitDevs in NYC.

Socratic Seminars

Our monthly Socratic Seminar events are formatted to foster debate, information sharing and lively discussion. In the weeks preceding the event, discussion topics are collated by the meetup organizer from a variety of sources: pull requests in popular git repositories, research papers, technical blog posts, IRC logs, network monitors and more. After the event the group gathers at a nearby bar or restaurant to socialize.

Reading Groups

A reading group is much like a socratic seminar focused on a single topic. Our goal is to drive improved understanding of the topic for all meeting participants. The primary reading materials will be posted on the event page of this site and on the meetup.com event page. Participants are expected to study the material before attending and bring discussion questions to help drive understanding. During the reading group session we will summarize the main points of the reading material and try to answer every attendees’ discussion questions.
