London BitDevs is a community of Bitcoin enthusiasts and professionals interested in discussing and participating in the research and development of Bitcoin and related protocols. We’re a friendly and inclusive group, and all are welcome to join us to learn about Bitcoin.

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 meetup members from a variety of sources: pull requests in popular git repositories (e.g. Bitcoin Core, lnd, c-lightning, Joinmarket, Elements Alpha and Electrum), research papers, technical blog posts, IRC logs, network monitors and more. To complete the meeting, members present open source projects, companies, research and other relevant materials. A feedback and Q&A section follow. After the event the group gathers at a nearby venue to socialize.

A newsletter is sent out the day of the event which outlines discussion topics. Archives of discussion topics and presentations can be found in the event descriptions of past meetups. The discussion portion of the event is never recorded. Discussion is technical, but there should be something for everyone - whether this is your first or one-hundredth BitDevs meetup, you should learn something new!

Please contact the organizers through the meetup page if you’d like to present at a future Socratic event or have a recommended topic for discussion. There are different requirements for presentations depending on the nature of the project.
