John Saddington

Course: The basics of Bitcoin

John Saddington is a software engineer, entrepreneur, and award-winning indie app developer, having built multiple projects and companies via bootstrapping and venture financing. His last larger project (company) was acquired by a Fortune 500, and he’s also the creator of a much smaller indie macOS app that won “Best Apps of the Year” via Apple two years in a row.

John is passionate about education, coaching, and mentoring others and has done this primarily through his public blog, where he shares his learnings (i.e. mostly his failures) for over 16 years. He desperately desires more people to become “tech literate” and expand their own opportunities through software.

But with all of that experience, John has never encountered anything more exciting than bitcoin and the blockchain technologies and protocols. After having dabbled in it as a curious observer, he fully jumped in with both feet and started building a large and vibrant bitcoin community to accelerate his own learning.

This is because he fundamentally believes that learning is a cooperative and collaborative process and that discoveries are best uncovered in the context of community. If you agree with this sentiment, then you’ll enjoy expanding your own horizons with John and others!
