Day 1 – Monday June 20th
Mon • 20/06/2016
TECHNICAL – DevCore Track
10:00
Welcoming & Opening Remarks
Andreas Antonopoulos
Technologist
10:30
Keynote – Education not Speculation

When introduced to bitcoin, most people see it as a speculative asset, like a stock. But stocks have volatility and risk and the skills required to invest in them are highly specialized. Instead, I propose that these new inventions should be approached primarily as technical innovations. The primary focus should be investment in education, skills and career building. Those skills are transferrable across crypto-currencies, asset-tokens, smart contracts and the entire ecosystem.

Driving Blockchain Adoption and Education from the Enterprise
Andreas Antonopoulos
Technologist
13:00
Blockchain Mechanics – Making Sense of blockchain data structures

Merkle trees, UTXO sets, BASE58CHECK encoding, hierarchical deterministic keys… most blockchains are built upon a variety of basic building blocks. This session will describe these data structures and algorithms and provide prerequisite knowledge to get developers up to speed on coding with blockchains.

Richard Kiss
Creator and Maintainer of pycoin
13:50
Working with Bitcoin in Ruby

While it may be common to use 3rd party payment services to accept Bitcoin, it is not necessary. With access to the Blockchain, a developer can implement their own payment system. As an seasoned developer who had very little experience with Bitcoin, I was able to easily create my own payment library written in Ruby. I will discuss and demonstrate the functionality of my bitcoin_payable gem from a practical perspective.

Jonathan Salis
CTO, Functional Imperative
14:40
Blockchain Investigations

This session will provide technical details about how blockchain technology works under the hood and how these can be used to link multiple seemingly disparate accounts to a single identity. This session will also introduce techniques that can help identify the real-world identity of an actor and provide insight into some of the investigations Mr. Perklin has conducted in the field.

Michael Perklin
President, C4 / Chairman, BAC / Director, BF
15:40
Using pycoin to Create Multisig Transactions

Learn how to use the Python-based open-source library pycoin to write code that creates a bitcoin multi-sig address, then spend coins from that address using 2-of-3 multisig.

Richard Kiss
Creator and Maintainer of pycoin
16:25
Segregated Witness: A powerful extensibility layer for Bitcoin

Segregated witness is the single most significant improvement to the Bitcoin protocol to date. This session will cover the basics of it, how it improves Bitcoin, how it works, and how application developers can leverage it to build more powerful applications.

Eric Lombrozo
17:15
CLTV, CSV, and advanced OPCODES in Bitcoin

This session will teach attendees about the latest opcodes to be added to Bitcoin’s scripting system, what business cases they provide, and how developers can use them in their manually-created transactions
