This month we are excited to host André Neves from Zebedee, a Bitcoin Lightning company building out the infrastructure for Lightning games.

The workshop will then be followed by a Socratic Seminar which will be a special treat as André, who also runs BitDevsNYC, will also be helping us moderate.

Please note that we are meeting at a different location this time! It will be at the Zephyr theater and is able to seat up to 70 people.
