The Bitcoin Foundation has announced that Chief Scientist Gavin Andresen will give the keynote address at Boston DevCore. The event will also include a feature presentation from Jeremy Allaire and Sean Neville, co-founders and CEO and CTO respectively of Circle. It aims to educate graduates to advanced C++ programmers, Bitcoin novices to Bitcoin veterans.
The one day event will take place on Wednesday, February 11, 2015 at District Hall from 8:30am to 4pm EDT. In the public statement, Sean Neville said that just like the Internet, Bitcoin’s ongoing maturity toward massive mainstream volume depends on attracting more people to code, test, debate, and generally innovate in its open meritocracy.
According to him, it’s a daunting project to enter and these roundtables help developers cross that threshold. Similar views were shared by Gavin Andresen who admitted that the biggest challenge for Bitcoin startups right now is finding technical talent who understands the block chain technology.
He added that whatever the skill level or interest of the attendees, this event will give them a solid grounding in Bitcoin Core and how they can contribute. Nonetheless, as the Bitcoin Foundation is reorienting its goal to development, it has designed some excellent programs that include a “Quick Hacks” workshop; training and certification; panel discussions with technical experts; an in-depth Q&A with Bitcoin Core developers; etc. amongst others.
Excellent Opportunity for Developers to Learn and Contribute to Bitcoin Technology
There will also consulting sessions with law firm Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, and networking opportunities. The organization promises that attendees will be better equipped to advance the development of Bitcoin Core. Thus, all those who are willing to contribute even a little to the Bitcoin ecosystem are welcome to attend the event.
The DevCore events, a series of developer roundtables aimed at building knowledge, are widening understanding and deepening technical expertise to support the future development of Bitcoin Core. The organizations are inviting the interested parties to attend the inaugural event, sponsored by Title Sponsors, Circle Internet Financial.
Announcing the event, the Bitcoin Foundation says, “We’re excited to kick off our developer roundtable series, DevCore, in the beautiful and historic city of Boston, Massachusetts with Title Sponsor Circle!”
It says that DevCore Boston is the first of a series of roundtables set to host around the world for all developers interested in deepening their technical expertise to support the future development of Bitcoin Core.
