This is a peer-to-peer reading group for learning and teaching each other programming languages, such as Rust, Go, and Scala, and software-related monetary technologies based upon Bitcoin.
For our meetings, we read a chapter from a book we've selected and then present the sections of that chapter to each other, each participant taking responsibility for a section or two. We pause after each section to allow for discussion and questions. At the end of each meeting we decide when we're meeting next. The more you present, the more you learn. Given the short chapters in this book, we'll likely do several chapters each week. We adjust the speed as we go.
The peer-to-peer learning technique that we use is modeled on the practices of the Stanford Bitcoin Club in early 2018.
