About last night...software developers are hot

All pink everything. Always.

All pink everything. Always.

If you've been following my blog, you'll know that So, I should've posted this yesterday. But I got busy. It happens to entrepreneurs sometimes.

I've been bit by the bitcoin bug. Since working with Libra and producing their weekly #FutureofMoney shows, I can't get enough of digital currency and related events.

Last night I attended my first SF Bitcoin Devs  event. The topic was about Libbitcoin, presented by William Swanson of Airbitz. Literally, 99.5% of the talk was over my head. So hot. I love learning new things.

Libbitcoin is a community of developers building the open source library, tools and implementation necessary for a free, independent and vibrant Bitcoin. It aims to create an extendable, scalable and configurable architecture, along with useful software. Making Bitcoin super-pluggable, highly configurable and easy to interact with.

While I'm not entirely sure what that means, after the presentation I felt that it was another example of our movement towards a more shared economy.

As one of the attendees explained to me, it's a way for one person to add a small ingredient to the mixture. After enough people freely contribute, we are all able to enjoy a neverending cake. Yum.

Essentially, Libbitcoin allows developers to create bitcoin related apps without having to suffer through the learning curve of bitcoin related coding. Similar to how I am able to build a beautiful website using Squarespace using drag and drop features, without knowing how to code. HOT.

William Swanson, the presenter for Libbitcoin. Amazingly intelligent and super approachable.

Everyone in the group was so lovely and eager to share their knowledge and answer my questions. 

With Nick Sullivan, founder of ChangeTip. Jake Benson, CEO and founder of Libra, sent me my first Bitcoin ever through ChangeTip on Twitter so I could buy a mimosa. YAY!

With John Bolton, Sr. Software Engineer at Netflix. Really awesome guy who helped me better understand all of the lingo from the presentation.

And OMG. The way coding language was thrown around was so freakin sexy. Seriously, it's like an art form and developers' passion is so breathtaking. 

I've officially fallen in love with software developers. They are truly changing our world. And in my opinion, for the better.
