TABConf is The Atlanta Bitcoin Conference — an event for building communities, providing education, and supporting developers. This is a conference where no one can "buy" a talk. We like to think of this as the most inclusive, organic, grassroots event possible for Bitcoin.
We are planning to have a heavy workshop schedule on day 1 of the conference, November 4th. The next 2 days, November 5th - 6th, will be panels, talks, and village activities. There are still opportunities to run workshops on the 5th - 6th, but this would need to be done with coordination of a village leader.

BitcoinJS
Ever wonder what exactly your bitcoin wallet does under the hood?

In this workshop we will be building our own bitcoin wallet from scratch to gain a better understanding of how bitcoin and bitcoin wallets work.

We will be writing code in Javascript using BitcoinJS.

This workshop is guided by code, but high level enough for plebs to follow along.

DLC Workshop - Ben Carman
Discreet log contracts (DLCs) are an exciting new technology that facilitates conditional payments on Bitcoin. By creating a Discreet Log Contract, two parties can form a monetary contract redistributing their funds to each other, based on preset conditions, without revealing any details of those conditions to the blockchain. Its appearance on the blockchain will be no different than an ordinary multi signature output. Therefore the contract is discreet in the sense that no external observer can learn its existence or details from the public ledger.
See the specs here.
This workshop will be run by Ben Carman.

Bitcoin Dev Kit
The Bitcoin Dev Kit (BDK) project (originally called Magical Bitcoin ) aims to build a collection of tools and libraries that are designed to be a solid foundation for cross platform Bitcoin wallets, along with a fully working reference implementation wallet called Magical Bitcoin. All BDK components are designed to be lightweight and modular so that they can be adapted for virtually any use-case: from single-sig mobile wallets to multi-billion-dollar cold storage vaults.
This workshop will be run by Thunderbiscuit.

Socratic Panel: Diving into the Mempool
The mempool is neither static nor uniform across nodes. There exists a complex relationship between transactions, some may conflict, others may be directly related (as part of an ancestor/descendant package). This affects block templating for miners as well as the propagation of transactions relevant to layer n+1 protocols. This panel will be an opportunity to explore these complexities and how they are being addressed.

Socratic Panel: Covenants
Covenants offer “introspection” to transactions, providing novel methods to restrict the future spends of an output. There are several proposals that would allow the use of covenants in Bitcoin, each with different designs and trade-offs. In the wake of the activation of taproot, future soft fork changes are under active consideration with Bitcoin’s use of covenants as a significant point of discussion. What are covenants, and what are their use cases for Bitcoin? What are the current proposals that would allow covenants, and how should Bitcoin users approach an understanding of their tradeoffs? Aside from new use cases, how would covenants improve existing off-chain/scaling protocols?

Socratic Panel: Lightning in Asynchronous Environments
The liveness requirement of the Lightning Network is rooted in the interactive nature of the protocol. This poses a significant challenge to parties who do not interact with the network from a device that supports an always-on lightning wallet. This panel will look at two schemes which play a part in addressing the complexities of this context: a “Lightning Service Provider” – Lightning Address, and how to use a long CLTV in conjunction with such a provider to enable mobile to mobile lightning payments.

Socratic Panel: Channel Leasing
The Lightning Network is quickly expanding. As it grows, so too does the demand for both inbound and outbound liquidity. With this growing demand and the ability to “dual fund” a channel, the rise of channel leasing markets has begun. How these markets operate and under what conditions channel counterparties cooperate are active areas of research and development. This panel will explore two modes of these markets (Lightning Pool and Liquidity Advertisements), how they work, and what their differences/tradeoffs are.
