SLACK: Summer of Bitcoin – Coinbase

When: Thursday, June 19th, 7-11PM
Where: MIT Media Lab, 5th floor

This week, Nahid from Coinbase is giving a walkthrough tutorial of how to use their API by building a basic Python web app, so bring your laptop! Coinbase is an international digital wallet that allows consumers and businesses to securely transact in the digital currency, bitcoin. They offer services designed for the average user to easily buy, sell, send, and receive bitcoin anywhere in the world. They offer an API that many services have used in a completely white-labeled way.

Nahid works closely with the developer community using Coinbase’s API and developer products. She recently organized Coinbase’s “BitHack” competition and is always happy to hear from developers using the API. She joined Coinbase in January 2014 and is a Stanford alumna.

As always, SLACK features free dinner and the chance to interact with awesome people. Brought to you by StartLabs and the MIT Bitcoin Club.
