10:00 AM to 3:00 PM - Peer-to-Peer Learning

• For those interested in the technical side, no DLT programming language experience necessary. Would be great if you've coded in something, but pure interest goes a long way. Self-learning programs include...
- CryptoZombies: Great primer on Solidity
- Ethernaut: Smart contract tutorial
- Hyperledger Composer: Build a Hyperledger solution from scratch
...and more.

• If you've got a project you're working on or something you'd like to further your understanding of with others, please bring it!

• Bring your laptops!

11:00 AM to 1:00 PM - Bitcoin Programming From Scratch
Want to learn how to program Bitcoin? Join our new reading group starting on Saturday, April 13th.

In this first Meetup, we will cover Chapter 1 of Jimmy Song's book "Programming Bitcoin". After each section, we pause and allow for questions and discussion, then go on to the next section.

Each time we meet thereafter, we just agree on the next chapter we're reading.


11:00 AM to 1:00 PM - Blockchain 101 for Non-Technical People

• We'll break down what blockchain technology is, what a blockchain is, and how it will benefit you.

• This week's Blockchain 101 angle is Blockchain + Nakamoto's Market Blockchain Game

11:00am to 12:00pm: What is Blockchain, Bitcoin, Ethereum & Why Should I Care?
12:00pm to 12:15pm: Q&A + Where will you go from here?
12:15pm to 1:00pm: Nakamoto's Market: Blockchain Role-playing Game


1:00PM to 3:00 PM White Paper Book Club: TBD

Come with us for a deep dive into a different White Paper vision every two weeks!
