Hey everyone, as you know I am just a mathematician and not a cryptographer by training who is interested and amazed by the Lightning Network Protocol. I joined this open source effort pretty late (in the beginning of 2018) and tried to catch up ever since. At that time reading the BOLTs (despite the fact that Rusty had his helpful blog articles) was really hard for me.
Over the past year - especially due to your help and open ears - I was able to catch up by a lot. Yesterday I held a 4 hour workshop giving an extensive overview about the Lightning Network and BOLT 1.0. I decided to open source the slides to give something (hopefully useful) back to the community. To the best of my knowledge this is the most extensive overview of the BOLTs in form of slides and I also tried to restructure the content in the hope of making it easier to approach fo newbies like I was a year ago. Please feel free to fork the slides on the google doc address: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1-eyceLlSmcLpbPJLzj6_CnVYQdo1AUP3y5XD716U-Lg I uploaded the pdf version of the slides at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Introduction_to_the_Lightning_Network_Protocol_and_the_Basics_of_Lightning_Technology_(BOLT_aka_Lightning-rfc).pdf Obviously I am very happy if you have suggestions how the slides could be improved even further. Probably I will still have some mistakes with them. But maybe you have more comments on a meta level about the structure or detail level or visualizations... Therefor I will be happy if you send back a pdf with comments. I also share a commentable version with this mailinglist on google docs: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1YCKZzE53xjnBndl3U0uy1-bHO4Y0rlAwgrnujzef1sY I will present the slides next time on chaincodelabs lightning residency in late june where - as far as I know - the talks will also be recorded. So any feedback before then will be highly appreciated. While this mail was note particularly about development I hope it is not considered offtopic. In case you do so I apologize for any inconvenience. With kind Regards Rene -- https://www.rene-pickhardt.de Skype: rene.pickhardt mobile: +49 (0)176 5762 3618
