Waffle House: let's fuel up before TABConf Builder Day
TABConf Builder Day starts today. If you're going to build on bitcoin today, you're going to need some protein. And if you're going to visit the southeast, you need to have the Waffle House experience. Knock out both tasks at once by walking to the Waffle House at the corner of Andrew Young and Centennial Olympic Park Drive for breakfast. There will be an informal hangout here. If you want to work on a specific project for Builder Day, message them and see if they'll be at breakfast.

Note: this is not the one on Marietta St. This is the one on Andrew Young and Centennial. Confusing, I know. There's a Waffle House everywhere. You're in the south now, baby!

Hands-on Simplicity
Simplicity is Russell O'Connor's reimagination of a language for expressing spending conditions that lock UTXOs. It is carefully designed to fulfill this role as best as possible, being fully verifiable and powerful enough to express any condition that you might want to express. On Builder Day, we want to show you why Simplicity "just makes sense," explore the Rust tooling around Simplicity and hack some Simplicity applications. Feel free to experiment; we are there to assist you. A lot of work has flown into teaching materials that we are excited to share with you and that make it easier than ever to immerse yourself in the next generation of blockchain languages.

Requirements: Understanding how UTXOs are locked by scripts and unlocked by witnesses (SegWit) would help. It would help to have seen a circuit diagram, once. (I'm really bad at electronics, so the bar is low.) If you are interested, look up Merkle trees. To use our tooling, you should know Rust. However, Simplicity can be completely understood without knowledge of any programming language.

Starter kit for building your own bitcoin hardware project with MicroPython
Workshop title:
Starter kit for building your own Bitcoin hardware project w/MicroPython

Workshop description:
What if you could devise your own Bitcoin hardware device from a cheap, off-the-shelf microprocessor board? What new, innovative solutions would you create?

Keith will walk you through the building blocks you'll need to get started. We'll build a Bitcoin-enabled custom MicroPython firmware for a variety of inexpensive microprocessor boards (e.g. ESP32, Raspi RP2040, STM32). We'll compile in Bitcoin Core's secp256k1 library for fast elliptic curve calculations. We'll also include Stepan Snigirev's "embit" library (used by Specter Desktop, Specter-DIY, SeedSigner) to provide higher-level Bitcoin functions; I don't know how to sign a psbt or what to do with secp256k1 but Stepan's library does!

We'll then briefly discuss incorporating displays, UI/graphics libraries (LVGL), cameras, buttons, etc.

From this starting point you'll be able to build ANY Bitcoin hardware project you can imagine, coding it in easy, mostly-familiar MicroPython (essentially the same as Python 3 but with some limitations).

Prerequisites for attendees:
* Basic Linux and Python proficiency.
* Laptop w/Docker installed. Downloading dependencies (compilers, etc) ahead of time will speed things up.
* ZERO experience with MicroPython or microprocessor boards required.

Supplies needed:
Attendees will receive a FREE esp32-S2 kit, courtesy of Bitcoin Magazine! All you need to bring is a laptop and a micro USB cable.

Welcome & Socratic Panel: The "G" Word
Bitcoin is rife with complexity. Generally speaking, this complexity is most widely understood to manifest as an extension of the feature-set available to the network and the interactions among users who exercise these functions in their unique contexts. But complexity also exists within the processes which govern modifications to Bitcoin's consensus critical code pathways. Understanding, improving upon and ensuring robustness in these processes is vital to Bitcoin's long term survival. In this panel we will investigate different perspectives on these processes and how we as a community can constructively work together in an increasingly adversarial world.

Covenants offer the promise to extend Bitcoin into something more useful than its already proven to be, but require serious consideration. This panel will dive into the ascendant topics most critical to the covenant discussion. We’ll attempt to elucidate a clearer picture of the various implementations which add more transaction introspection to the bitcoin protocol. Following the noteworthy approaches to implementing covenants that introduce new opcodes can be a rollercoaster. We’ve got a great group that can not only help get everyone up to speed, but peek into the future that may already be possible with bitcoin script as it exists today.

Provably Bug-free BIPs & Implementations
Writing good specifications is hard. Misinterpretations of seemingly minor aspects can result in catastrophic vulnerabilities in implementations. Therefore, in the BIP draft "Half-Aggregation of BIP 340 Schnorr signatures" recently published by Blockstream Research, we use a different approach than previous cryptography BIPs. Most importantly, our draft includes a _formal_ specification (a mathematically precise description of the scheme) written in the hacspec language, a subset of rust. This type of specification allows using software tools to prove security properties and the absence of certain kinds of bugs. Moreover, developers are able to write implementations whose behavior is provably identical to that of the specification.

Codex32
Codex32 is an error-correcting code designed to be computable without the use of electronic computers. Users can compute and verify checksums by hand; we have provided lookup tables, volvelles and worksheets to assist with this process. The codex32 checksum, like all linear codes, is compatible with Shamir's Secret Sharing Scheme, a mechanism to split a secret into many "shares", such that the original secret can be reconstructed from some number of them. In SSSS, users choose a threshold value k, typically 2 or 3; they then generate k-many random shares, and then compute a number of derived shares (up to 31 in total). A random secret can then be computed from any k shares. If the initial random shares have a valid codex32 checksum, then so will all the derived shares and the final secret.

Simplicity: Formally Verified Programmable Money
One of the revolutions of Bitcoin was the invention of programmable money, i.e., money which is owned by programs that release their funds upon presenting a witness. The ability to express complex spending conditions is what gave rise to multisig, the Lightning network and other schemes. Unfortunately, Bitcoin Script, the language used to write these programs, is quite restrictive and makes it hard to verify that programs are correct. Simplicity is our vision of a language that satisfies the unique needs of the blockchain: Everything that one might want to express can be expressed. Everything that one might want to verify can be verified. This is a difficult balance because highly expressive languages tend to be hard to verify. Also, what needs to be expressed and what needs to be verified turn out to be tough questions. In this talk, we answer the question of what Simplicity is, clearly and succinctly. We look at the structure of a Simplicity program and its execution, various add-ons and existing applications. We want to see the true nature of Simplicity, which turns out to be intuitive and simple.

Base58's World Famous Bitcoin LARP

So you run your own node, but what if you could *be* a bitcoin node? Come live roleplay bitcoin in this 2-hour hands-on workshop

What is a bitcoin node? What does it do? How do transactions flow through the network and get mined?
In this 2-hour workshop, we'll live-action role play the bitcoin network. We'll see how transactions get made, how they get to miners, what work a bitcoin node does and how it helps secure the network. You'll get a front-line view of how miners create blocks and transactions get spent, how difficulty readjustments impact block production, and what re-orgs and network splits look like.

No prior knowledge of bitcoin or running a node is required, but highly recommended to get the most out of this workshop.
