The session Advanced Lightning Applications will cover an overview of advanced applications on the Lightning network enabled by current and future protocol features. We'll focus on the unique aspects of Lightning that allow it to do things that aren't possible on any other payment system. The goal of this session is to inspire new developers to build applications on the Lightning network.

What will students learn?
You'll learn about the innovations being built on the Lightning network through high-level examples provided during the session. Some of the ideas showcased in the session are possible today, but haven't yet been implemented widely by any developers/applications. You will leave this session inspired to explore the mostly untouched landscape of advanced Lightning use cases.

This course is appropriate for current lightning developers who have a basic understanding of the network and want to get a glimpse of future developments.

Prerequisites: an understanding of the basics of the Lightning Network
