We invite you to immerse yourself in Bitcoin this summer. Chaincode Labs is hosting a Bitcoin residency program in our offices in Midtown Manhattan, New York City.
This residency's format fuses an onboarding seminar period with a two-month project-based residency under the guidance of established Bitcoin and Lightning Network developers. This will allow residents to put their theoretical learnings to use by making meaningful contributions to open-source projects.
(~2-3 weeks) Sessions to bootstrap the knowledge of developers by diving deep into security concerns, adversarial thinking, and approaches to Bitcoin and Lightning protocol design.
(~2 months) Unstructured time for residents to contribute to open-source projects or work on a personal project of their choosing. Each resident will be assigned a mentor for the duration of the program.
If you have wanted to contribute to open-source Bitcoin protocol projects but found the idea daunting, or want to spend more time designing protocols based on Bitcoin and Lightning, thinking about edge cases and security models with established protocol developers, this is an excellent opportunity.
Chaincode is committed to creating an inclusive environment for people from different backgrounds. This is a paid residency commensurate with your level of experience. Travel and lodging will be provided as needed.
