Chaincode launches Lightning Network bootcamp

Chaincode Labs’ Bitcoin Developers have launched a 1 week bootcamp to teach Bitcoin and blockchain to web developers with no prior knowledge of Bitcoin, in an effort to, as Chaincode engineer and Bitcoin software maintainer Marco Falke said, create tech “for normal people on the street, not just weird developers.”

Announced Monday, Chaincode is launching a new “residency” in New York, in October, one that will focus on helping developers build their own Lightning Network apps, in an effort to spur Bitcoin usage as well as educate people to LN. Falke continued: “There aren’t many apps and you can’t go into a shop and pay with Bitcoin. There’s all this missing infrastructure. We thought it would be great to get some app developers involved that have experience building websites, but don’t have to have any background in Bitcoin or Lightning… Personally, I think every day we wait for Lightning applications will delay Lightning and Bitcoin. It’s really important to do this app development thing as soon as possible.”
