Before Camp

BitCamp is designed to take people from Zero to Blockchain Hero.

There’s no expectation of prior knowledge beyond what one ought to encounter in an American high school.

That being said, there’s a lot you can do to contextually root camp, and get the most out of the experience.

1. Read the Bitcoin Whitepaper:

In Satoshi's own words, the ur-text of the movement: Bitcoin Whitepaper

2. Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Action

3. Go through programming primer.

No you don’t need to be code-literate to come to camp, but you should want to be anyway and it will do a lot to contextually root everything that happens in camp and empower you to do more with everything you learn after camp.

We recommend Codecademy's Python Course: Learn Python

4. Go through a Game Theory primer.

Bitcoin is as much peopleware as it is software. Game theory is the study of human behavior as discrete decisions and its interaction with incentives. Here is an Interactive Explanation of Game Theory: Evolution of Trust

5. Don't worry.

If you don't make it through everything or anything, we got you.
