In this category of work, we will continue supporting developer growth through our educational programs and courses, as well as through both managed and 3rd-party managed (sponsored) developer events. These efforts will focus on "sBTC-ready" developers and building early feedback loops and product traction. We will also be collaborating with other developer advocates in the ecosystem to improve the overall developer experience, with our primary contribution being the continued upkeep of critical documentation.
These efforts never stop as we head toward an initial test release of sBTC. We'll be making sure prospective builders have the opportunity to try the system out, provide feedback, and get a jump start on building exciting and useful apps enabled by sBTC. Look out for hackathons, pitch competitions, and other developer-focused events and resources.
We also expect a test version of sBTC to be available in the coming months and will be working with various Working Group leads to ensure there are clear goals for the release and plans or people in place to ensure these key outcomes, which are likely to center on developer feedback and testing.
