Greetings @ipfs/ipfs-camp-2019-attendees 馃憢馃徑

I'm psyched to welcome you to the 馃彆 2019 IPFS Camp 馃寣 Content Repo 馃殌 馃殌

It is in this repo that you will find the content needed for the Courses, interact with Trainers and Speakers on content, give feedback, contribute and then post-camp, push and share the knowledge you learned and created. All of these interactions will become way more clear over the following weeks with some more communications from our side. Meanwhile, I invite to you explore:

Also, if you haven't already, join our chat at #ipfs-camp@freenode using any IRC client or through the Matrix bridge

While you are here, what about introducing yourself to the group? Post a comment on this thread with:

  • Your name
  • Your location (city or country where you live)
  • What you had today for breakfast
  • What excites you about IPFS
  • What are you looking forward to do at IPFS Camp
  • A project you are building or that you are excited about

Looking forward to meet you all in person in the Sunny Catalunya!


PS 1: As a goal for IPFS Camp, we鈥檝e to beat this group photo from the last IPFS event!

PS 2: If you are new to the IPFS Community or it is the first time to communicate on the public channels, please make sure you read first the IPFS Community Code of Conduct.

G'day Everyone!

I'm Ian Preston, from Australia, but living in Oxford (UK). Today I had Vegemite on toast. :-)

I'm excited about making the web more secure and reliable with IPFS.

I'm looking forward to meeting more smart and fun people at IPFS camp and solving difficult problems!

I spend most of my time working on a private storage and social network on IPFS - Peergos. We've just launched our alpha!

Hi everyone! I'll take the opportunity to introduce myself as well :D

I'm David Dias, originally from Lisbon Portugal, but been all over planet earth for the last 5~6 years. For breakfast I had a delicious Gem眉sesandwich (thats a Vegetable Sandwich in German) and delicious black coffee!.

I'm psyched about IPFS as it is a fundamental building block, a protocol, to create powerful and distributed experiences for humans across the planet-wide nervous system that we call the 鈥淚nternet鈥. Before IPFS, developing a P2P application implied having years of experience building networking applications, going deep on technical protocols and fighting complexity at every step on the way. Building with Centralized Infrastructure had exactly if not even more complex hurdles, then HTTP and all the conventions on how to build Web Applications came along and now, everything is so much more simple. HTTP was instrumental in powering multiple waves of applications and services over the last 2 decades. I believe that IPFS will do the same for the DWeb (Distributed Web).

For IPFS Camp I'm looking forward for Lazers and Space Travel! Ahaha we've been cooking up something special :D Also and most importantly, I can't wait to meet and learn from you all!

I've been building IPFS since 2015 and it is the number 1 thing I focus on 馃殌

Hi everyone!

I'm Robert Ignat, from Romania.

I had zacusc膬 for breakfast (there seems to be a veggie trend here).

I'm excited about IPFS' potential to decentralize the web and data storage in general.

I'm looking forward to meeting all you great people at IPFS Camp and learning as much as possible about p2p systems.

I'm not working on anything involving IPFS currently, but am enthusiastic about libp2p, OpenBazaar and most decentralized technology.

I'm into IPFS for a future where we can meaningfully contribute to the co-hosting of data we care about.

At camp, I'll be your guide for the "Lifecyle of data in IPFS" course AKA "WHERE THE BLOCKS AT!?". It's gonna be rad! I can guarantee it will be slightly calmer and much more detailed than this: https://youtu.be/xTBm1skAfiY

I'm working on the IPFS Web UI and IPFS Desktop, and would like to talk to you all about the tools and visualisations we could add to it to support developers figure out what their IPFS node is up to, and as a learning tool to help new users build a mental model of what's going on under the hood.

Breakfast is always coffee - Black 鈽曪笍 .

What excites me about IPFS? I am passionate about all things Distributed Web (Web3). Blockchain is my main gig, but I know it is only a tiny part of the true decentralized infra future. IPFS (and it's stack) are what I hope are key to unlocking generalized, permissionless cloud storage, and lead to generalized compute as well.

EDIT: I am there in person! 馃檱 thanks Protocol Labs!!! I will be LIVE to contribute a talk on community building!

I am working most on the IPFS and Blockchain community itself... but I have an end game: CORE Resources. A Distributed set of shared community resources hosted on IPFS by peers in the community. See the node repo for an outline of the plans 馃榿 (Oh and please consider contributing! I would love to have some support from the amazing folks here! 馃檱 馃檹 )

This morning my breakfast was made of 2 boiled eggs, food supplements 馃挭, tea and a grilled cheese sandwich. I am excited about IPFS because I think it is one of the building blocks for decentralised storage; I am super excited because there is a lot to do and a lot of thing to improve! I can't wait to meet new people, say hi to the veterans and learn how we are using IPFS in different way to solve different issues!

ATM, I am working at Siderus developing a more production-ready gateway that solves the issues found by some users of our IPFS Desktop Client: Orion. If you guys has some feedback about this project, or if you want to help, I am the right person to talk to! 馃殌

Hello Everyone!

I'm Kevin Wong @kk3wong , from Hong Kong. I used to live in Toronto, Canada for many years but I moved back to Hong Kong couple of years ago.

I just had my son's left over bread roll for today's breakfast (which I always do 馃槴)

I started my university with learning Java, Html, MySQL etc... years ago and ended up landing in a commercial field. The excitement of IPFS kind of drag my focus back to the tech world. I am a big fan of p2p and truly believe IPFS will play a key role of the future Web 3.0

I am looking forward to meeting so many great people and talents through out the camp so that we can work together to help growing the amazing community!

I am currently working on growing the IPFS Community and Protoschool in my city and have a potential to launch a project (only if I got financial support 馃槶馃槶馃槶)

Hi there! I am Peter Brown or @mib-kd743naq ( just Mib, and no, that's not my main nickname 馃榿 )

I am hailing from near Germany's coal-country Rheinland

This morning I skipped breakfast ( and 11sies, and lunch, and am already late for dinner ) because of a production issue. One 馃専, would not recommend.

I am excited about IPFS and the IPLD subset in particular as it brilliantly implements various doodles I've been playing with during the past decade or so. I am most interested in offline uses of IPFS, in a manner similar to how I admire the offline capabilities of git.

I am looking forward to participating in the IPLD specification heddesking, various security-related matters, demo my latest progress on a "UNIXFS v1.5" to interested parties, and be part of the awesome experience overall.

Tons of things excite me about IPFS, but the broadest-possible-level one is the community of developers and users who are genuinely thrilled about and committed to creating protocols and implementations that will truly change the fabric of the internet. I've been lucky in the past to work with a bunch of folks involved in the very early days of the 'net and I've never been in a situation that captures the hope, optimism and excitement that they recall experiencing ... until now.

I'm helping organize the unconf sessions and lightning talks, so I think what I'm looking forward to most about camp is seeing those go wonderfully 馃槈 ...

Outside of camp stuff I'm working primarily with the IPFS Package Managers Special Interest Group ... come check out what we're up to!

Hey Everyone! Vaibhav(aka vasa) form India here!
I had chapati and tea for breakfast (seems like breakfast is part of the intro here 馃榿)

I am a dropout from IIT Delhi (dropped out in 2018 Jan). I run a startup named TowardsBlockchain. We have a really passionate team of people working on Web3.0. Also, I am a speaker and writer. I love writing articles that simplify a concept for beginners and average internet users. You can check out my medium profile here.

Apart from that, I love contributing to Open Source. I am working on a few projects under an umbrella called ClusterLabs(Github, Website).

Here is a list of a few cool projects that I am working on:

  • IpfsCloud v2.0: The v0.1 started as a side project for showing the wase of use of IPFS, by adding a Google Drive like interface to IPFS backend. But as the user base grew(we have 3000+ users :)) it was easy to see that the project wasn't sustainable, as I can't afford to put up that much storage for free. So, IpfsCloud v2.0 aims to provide a modular stack to build NOT just a decentralized cloud but an ecosystem of p2p webapps.
    It covers modules for

    • managing identities using DIDs,
    • modular/standalone GUI (using the p2p power of Libp2p)
    • a robust and scalable backend infra that stores data reliably and securely.
      You can find more about IpfsCloud v2.0 in this thread
  • IpfsDocs: Google docs on IPFS

  • Cosmos: A general CRDT using IPFS Stack(Made a 3d model collaboration tool)

  • Quasar: A Search Engine on IPFS

  • IpfsHost: A website Builder(drag n drop like Wix) and hoster on IPFS

  • Horizon: A GUI for managing Ipfs Cluster

Other Projects:

I am really excited to join you all at the camp and explore other cool projects in the community 馃槈

Hi, hola, 浣犲ソ!

My name is Dietrich Ayala, and I've recently moved to San Francisco, California. I used to live in Portland for a long time. I'm adjusting to being Californian again, give me time.

I don't eat breakfast, but I did just have noodle soup for lunch, which we make at home many times every week (I really should publish this recipe...).

I spent a lot of years working on Firefox, Firefox OS and many other things at Mozilla, and now I'm SUPER EXCITED to be able to work on bringing IPFS to the web at Protocol Labs!! We are working to help the user agent live up to its name.

The part of camp I'm most looking forward to is the spaces in between... people meeting new people, building things together that could not be predicted in advance. There are also specific things like some IPFS+Dat+SSB people all being together, the people who work on browsers that are coming like Brave, Chrome, Puma (maybe!) and Firefox.

Projects I'm excited to be working on:

  • IPFS representation in standards bodies like W3C, IETF and IAB

  • Supporting integration of IPFS in browsers (Brave will be doing demos at the science fair!)

  • Ok, I'm not working on it yet, but... I want to make a formalized measurement for IPFS performance and bandwidth usage under different loads and network topologies, so we can better explain where it shines and better identify where it needs work. If you're interested, let's talk 馃榿

Hello Everyone!

I am Steven from IPFS-Force Community, based in - Shanghai China馃嚚馃嚦. I have been in the magic city for more than ten years, focusing on network, security and storage technology.

For the breakfast, I think you might be really interested. This picture is a part of it, plus honey water and delicious Baozi 馃槈.

Currently I am the technical lead in IPFS-Force Community, and one of organizers of ProtoSchool Shanghai Chapter. We have weekly IPFS event to update the status to people who are interested in, and monthly technical deep-dive session with technical engineers. At the same time, we put some effort on IPFS application development. One platform is on trial already to connect decentralized storage providers and users for commercial use.

I am really excited to join you all at the camp and explore other cool projects in the community 馃槈. Looking forward to meeting you all.

For IPFScamp, I am looking to meet all these amazing people and projects building in the decentralisation space, learning about and from them, connect and exchange learnings and experience. I have been involved in the decentralisation, offline-first privacy-security-space for quite a while now, but haven't been to any larger IPFS event yet. So I am very much looking forward getting to know everyone and learn and share.

I myself am working on Substrate, the Rust Blockchain development kit developed by Parity. I've been doing network layer, consensus and client infrastructure stuff on it and am generally working towards integrations with other projects in the space. As such I have been involved in rust-libp2p, rust-ipfs and - most recently - with the Filecoin spec.
In case this isn't clear from context: I am a Rust dev (I 鉂わ笍 Rust.) and also help organise the Rust community, too (through organising conferences and the governance working group).

Hi friends!

I'm @lidel, also known as Marcin Rataj.
Living in Lublin, Poland. Had a coffee-based breakfast.

I've created and maintain ipfs-companion browser extension,
and currently work at Protocol Labs on IPFS at the intersection of Web Browsers, GUIs and i18n.

Projects/areas I am excited about?

  • Exposing IPFS features in useful, intuitive way. In the following months I hope to revisit user-facing things like archiving, authoring and publishing content (websites!) using IPFS, and work to ensure those are great experiences.

  • Bringing DWeb protocols closer to web browsers. Some of you might remember me from experiments such as Protocol Handler with libdweb and Firefox Nightly, or recent escapades into embedded JS-IPFS-as-a-Gateway in Brave. Buckle up: embedded Gateway is an important step, but P2P Transports and Local Discovery will make things truly exciting!

I am looking forward to in-between conversations at IPFS Camp.
Great ideas always appear in that type of environment!

I had half a breakfast burrito today because I was too busy rewriting a reward function for an autonomous race car (only half as cool as it sounds).

A lot of things about IPFS excite me, but I think the thing that excites me most about it, kind of like everything with this decentralization movement, is how it takes power from the few and gives it to the many. The network and data layer of IPFS create the foundation for a completely new type of computing that I believe is necessary for humanity to reach the next level of evolution :)

I'm looking forward to being around other people excited about IPFS and learning from and talking with topic experts.

I'm building Gathering, an app that uses LibP2P to allow direct device to device contact info swapping at in-person conferences with a gamified incentive. It's mostly an experiment to explore the technology, but hopefully it'll work well 馃槵

Hello y'all!

My name is Gorka, I was born in Mexico City, lived there for 22 years, then moved to Playa del Carmen (amazing Caribbean destination) for 5 years, then moved to Bueno Aires, Argentina also for 5 years and 2 years ago moved to Barcelona, Spain - planning on moving somewhere else once again.

Today I had my regular avocado with sunny-side up egg and mate:

IPFS rocks, big time. Several things about the project draw my attention:

  • experimental pubsub + crdts
  • libp2p
  • using it as a file system!

I will be trying to learn as much as I can on how to use IPFS for Dapps, learn all I can on distributed Identity, learn how to improve an auth layer I've implemented on top of my IPFS node and how to easily connect nodes (nat is a bummer).

Projects I'm working on:

  • Aragon: hell yeah! Building software to manage unstoppable organizations!
  • Kontu: kiss infrastructure for Dapps that uses a home IPFS node server to store user data and to connect to other nodes (just found out about Textile and am really happy they'll be attending and giving a course)

Right now, most of my energy goes to Vocdoni, where we're building an end-to-end verifiable, censorship-resistant, voting system.

But also Interplanetary mind-map, where we're exploring how to construct and organize information so anyone can create a sharable ontology that fits her very unique model of the world. So we can play with more complexity, re-use knowledge, learn faster and transcend the default limitations of the human mind! Yeah!

I'm really excited about the event and to meet like-minded individuals.
I'll say that I'm especially interested in IPLD, sovereign identities, IPFS on mobile devices, an anything that does not require an authority to work ^^

Hey folks, my name's Greg and I'm from Edinburgh, Scotland! For breakfast, I cooked my famous poached eggs with a nice mug of coffee. 鈽曪笍

I graduated from University last year and joined Monax soon after, focusing on work in the blockchain space - specifically Hyperledger Burrow. I love all things decentralized, and IPFS is an incredible technology which will likely underpin the next web. We use it at work to share state across different chains, and we're also looking at versioning smart contracts with gx. I recently started work on a small side project nicknamed Gantry, which facilitates using IPFS as a registry for OCI compliant images.

At the camp I'm most excited to learn more about libp2p and identity, but I also aspire to better understand the whole ecosystem! Of course, I also can't wait to meet more like-minded geeks and work on some awesome design projects together! 馃懆鈥嶐煔

Hi, I'm Alex, a core dev on the JavaScript implementation of IPFS.

I live in London where today, predictably, it's raining. When I remember to have breakfast it's cereal and a cup of tea - when I forget it's usually croissants from the supermarket next door, which are ok but no doubt vastly inferior to @gorhgorh's boulangerie provided delights.

I'm jazzed about the use of IPFS in low powered computing environments with flaky network connections, identity, and integrity. I'll also be one of your guides on the libp2p workshop!

Hi all, I'm Hector and I mostly take care of the IPFS Cluster (https://github.com/ipfs/ipfs-cluster).

We have been very busy in the team preparing courses and an IPFS Cluster workshop for the camp (join Elective Course B!). We will also run a local Cluster-based pinning service on a bunch of Raspberry Pis.

I'm looking forward to meet you all and very excited to discuss about distributed apps on the libp2p and ipfs lands, crdts, and all new features coming to Cluster.

One of my little projects has been an IPFS storage driver for the Docker Registry (docker/distribution#2906) which builds on top of go-ds-crdt and ipfs-lite.

*For breakfast I had a swarm of tender peers seasoned with spicy pubsub messages, on a creamy dht sauce, toppled with unique chocolate bits of content.

Hey, folks! I'm Teri and I'm the lead maintainer and community manager for ProtoSchool, a community-driven open source project dedicated to making it easy to get started with decentralized web technologies through interactive tutorials and local community learning events. (We just added our 20th chapter this morning, and we'll be releasing a brand new tutorial later this week! 馃帀 ) I'll be attending lots of workshops at IPFS Camp with an eye to transforming the content into ProtoSchool tutorials after the event.

Since I live in Boston, there's a Dunkin' Donuts on every corner, so when I'm out and about I tend to end up grabbing the least unhealthy thing on the breakfast menu: the ham, egg and cheese wake-up wrap. If you frequent Zoom meetings in the IPFS universe, you've probably seen me sipping my accompanying iced tea from a Dunks cup.

I'm still new to IPFS and the decentralized web in general, but I'm excited about their potential to democratize access to data for folks with poor internet connections. I first learned about the decentralized web through my work organizing an unconference tech retreat called Offline Camp, which brings together the the Offline First community to tackle the challenges of building tech solutions that work in challenging network conditions. I used to be a developer advocate for IBM Cloudant, and have some experience building offline-capable Progressive Web Apps with CouchDB & PouchDB, but I've never build a Dapp. I've been exploring the crossover between Offline First and dweb as a member of the Local and Offline Collaboration Special Interest Group, and I look forward to learning more at IPFS Camp about how IPFS can support offline or low-bandwidth use cases.

I find a lot of discussion about decentralized web concepts to be quite inaccessible to beginners, in part due to vocabulary that feels really foreign. (For more on this, check out Nolan Lawson's passion talk "Decentralization Is Not Enough" and my subsequent interview with him on the messaging challenges of the decentralized web and the risk of creating an exclusive safe haven for the technical elite, rather than a compelling movement to change the way technology works for everyone.) I'm looking forward to connecting with all of you at camp and discussing how we can help to make both IPFS and broader dweb concepts friendlier for beginners as we build the IPFS community.

A special shout-out to all the ProtoSchool chapter organizers and IPFS Meetup organizers coming to camp. I can't wait to meet you all in person!

Hi, I am Marnee.

I live in Tucson, Arizona.

For breakfast I had a huge glass of whole, raw milk.

I am interested in two areas of application:

Mesh networks in general, and ham radio emergency communications networks, specifically. I have been designing and developing a system called FAPRS - F# for APRS, that you can read more about here, that I hope to someday integrate with IPFS and Broadband Hamnet (mesh network).

Research computing and reproducibility in general, and distributed, decentralized systems for sharing data, specifically. I suspect IPFS-cluster will be a good fit for this. I contribute a bit to a project called Exosphere, which is intended to make it easier for researchers to allocate and manage their computing infrastructure. We have talked about the potential to use IPFS for data storage and sharing. (New contributors are always welcome).

I am looking forward to learning a lot more about IPFS, interesting applications, meeting new people, and walk away with a good understanding of how to implement IPFS in my projects.

Hi Everyone,

My name is Irakli Gozalishvili and I'm from Georgia (this one 馃嚞馃嚜) currently living in Portland OR. I usually go by @Gozala on the internet.

My breakfast was yogurt with some berries, but I don't have a photo of it. So instead I'm going to share a photo of ice creams me & my son enjoyed on our bike ride this weekend. I'm having Shiitake mashroom flavor (which is quite a something) and my son is enjoying Berries, Beans, & BBQ Sauce!

I have being working at Mozilla about 10 years on different projects and capacity. Lately I've being focusing my efforts on enabling peer-to-peer technologies like IPFS in the browsers through projects like libdweb.

I think IPFS provides an opportunity to turn power dynamics of the web (favoring authority - server) upside down & to create an ecosystem where user agent (a.k.a browser) acts in user interests instead of corporate ones executing instructions delivered from their servers.

I am looking forward to meet the IPFS community and attempt to steer conversations from "how do we bring IPFS to the devs ?" towards in IMO more important question of "How do we bring core values of IPFS to the users?" as two can often lead to different choices and outcomes & values we are trying to bring are the most important. I also would be helping with "Making the Browser True User Agent" elective, "IPFS in Web Workers" deep dive and possibly unpacking above mentioned subject further at UNCONF

Lately I have being experimenting with Inter Planetary Data Feeds a side project of mine that I'll also do a lightning talk about. I also would be happy to share learnings from lunet exploration that is an attempts to bring the values of IPFS to the web by utilizing web platform & upgrading to the true P2P stack when local IPFS node is available.

Look forward to seeing you all there!

Hey everyone I'm Ian and I currently live in Denver,CO, 馃憢 at all the Coloradans, but moving to Brooklyn after I get back from the camp! 馃憢 to all future NY neighbors!

I had 'Malt-O-Meal' for breakfast. It's basically porridge but it's heart healthy and sticks with you all day :)

I am really excited about universal file namespaces and how IPFS can help decentralize data which I believe is critical to the future of the internet.

I'm excited about distributed package and source management. Docker container registries and other projects that help with designing more robust systems. I am interested in making IPFS more usable today and in my current day to day workflow. I am also interested in using IPFS in HPC settings.

Hey hey, I'm Gon莽alo :)

I just settled down in London after a period of time between Lisbon and the road. I was raised in a small fisherman town in Portugal called Sesimbra, around 40km south of Lisbon and although I'm pretty excited about moving to London, I always feel slightly homesick. This picture explains it better:

I believe that IPFS has a huge role as part of the tech stack that will serve as the scaffolding for the future of connected experiences that are secure, private and decentralised. And that is pretty cool! :)

This thread sums up better than anything the main reason I'm so excited about the camp: to meet all the interesting people (and with solid decision making when it comes to breakfast) who will be around. I'm also looking forward to learn about the new projects that are pushing decentralisation forward and to have good conversations around hacking and the future of the web. I really enjoy spontaneous, popup hacking sessions and the IPFS camp seems to be the right place for that to happen 馃懆鈥嶐煉 馃懇鈥嶐煉

I've been working on p3lib, which is a toolbox for engineers to enhance privacy in P2P networks. IMO, one of the most interesting challenges on designing and building low latency P2P networks (e.g. based on distributed hash tables) is how to build those systems so that peers collaborate with each other without leaking information about their behaviour, interests and social graph. I believe that decentralised networks have a huge potential for delivering a scalable and private infrastructure for the web, but there is still a lot of research and engineering work to get there. p3lib is an effort in that direction: to provide building blocks for system engineers and designers to enhance privacy of their P2P applications.

Can't wait!! :) 馃彆 馃彆 馃彆

Hello , everyone!

I'm JialeDai, from China , Should have met some community friends here before->..

I have been paying attention to this community and Protocol Labs' technology since 2017 years and made some demo projects like ipfs-md-wiki \ ipfs-geo.

At present, I am serving for Fintech and Edge Computing Business. I have held three IPFS technology salons for Chinese technology enthusiasts before, hoping that Chinese technology enthusiasts can understand these technologies in the right way.

This is my breakfast today. I made my own Chinese fried dish锛

I know a little about IPFS because 8 out of the 17 students who took a full-semester course I taught last year did their term paper on IPFS or Filecoin. I am looking forward to drink from the IPFS firehose and teach it in the next iteration of the same course. I also want to explore building dapps using IPFS for automating teaching and administrative processes in my department.

I am looking forward to the elective on Textile. I am learning React to get the most out of this course.

I am working on privacy-preseving proof of reserves protocols for anonymous cryptocurrencies. Here is some of our recent work

Hi there,

I'm Guillaume, I'll come to Barcelona from Paris.

Today I woke up late so I skipped the breakfast, but I usually get some toasts and a coffee in the morning. Sadly I hadn't any croissants for a while, I'm not sure they will keep me in France for long.

When I first heard about IPFS it quite excited me because it allows apps reverse the data ownership back to the users contrary to what major content platforms or the decentralised ones can offer.

Not sure I can assist to everything but I am interested in the elective course on Textile and also in some deep dive sessions such as "Private DHT", "IPFS on Mobile", "Private content on IPFS".

Can't wait to meet all of you!

What excites me more about IPFS is that it's an essential pillar to build decentralized apps, thanks to its distributed storage, automagically discovery, ubiquitous data exchange between peers and so on.

I'm looking forward to participate in courses, deep dives and posters. Those were awesome in previous events, along with some funny moments as well.

I envision an interoperable world where our digital wallets can be used to facilitate everything. Do you imagine a world where everything is easier and actually more secure? Just a few examples:

  • Pay your meal in a restaurant and automatically associate your VAT number without actually disclosing it
  • Prove you are an adult without disclosing your age
  • Prove your citizenship without disclosing your full name
  • Prove your education degree to your employer
  • Prove that you are vaccinated
  • Prove you bought a flight ticket
  • Have decentralized SSO into all web sites and applications, including your OS

... I could go on but the list would be possibly infinite. I'm working on a project aligned with this vision. I will be talking about Identity in Elective Course A, so be sure to attend! I will also be driving a deep-dive on a subject related to identity, stay tuned!

Looking forward to meet you all!

Your name

Blake Joyce. I'm the Assistant Director of Research Computing at the University of Arizona. Which is a fancy title that just means I help all the researchers at UA with...uh...computing. We help run the UA HPC machines, have statistics and data visualization consultants, and work on university-wide projects for researchers. I'm an end user of IPFS, and before I became a suit, I was an ecologist, a molecular biologist, and a bioinformatician. But that's a longer story.

Your location (city or country where you live)

Tucson, AZ, USA is home for now. But I'm originally from Georgia. The state; not the country. It's confusing sometimes.

What you had today for breakfast

I had eggs, bacon, and grits. If you don't know what grits are, there's a 1978 documentary called "It's Grits" (http://www.folkstreams.net/film-detail.php?id=335). TL;DW: polenta without all the pomp. In math we would express that as: grits = (polenta - pomp) x 10.

I'm also looking forward to learning how people survive without breakfast. I thought it was a biological imperative. Shows you what I know.

What excites you about IPFS

Everything? Everything. We have a lot of data problems in research. Especially the fact that there's data everywhere, no great way to move TB/PB easily, esoteric sharing mechanisms, massive amounts of duplication from lack of clear technical tools and training, and many other problems. I'm also just a big fan of BitTorrent for good.

A noncomprehensive list:

  1. CRDTs (AKA math magic that let things sync file on/off the network)
  2. Region aware transfers (we move around a lot in research)
  3. Inherent file versioning (we all have that need: http://phdcomics.com/comics/archive.php?comicid=1531)
  4. Ability to work anywhere in the world, with good, bad, no network, and no duplications

What are you looking forward to do at IPFS Camp

I'd like to benchmarking IPFS against other transfer protocols (HTTPS, dat, iRODS, etc) to demonstrate the benefits of distributed file protocols. Beginners need a reason to adopt something new.

IPFS Projects that interest me:

  • IPFS filestore
    • Keeps files from being duplicated on local storage
    • Researchers have TB/PB of data (duplicating that will really hurt)
    • Researchers have millions of small files (duplicating that will really hurt)
  • Ability to search IPFS hashes or file names to find files
  • Ways to move massive amounts (1 TB or 1 PB, or 1 million small files)
  • Anything CRDTs

A project you are building or that you are excited about

I'm here as an end-user. I basically know nothing, but I'm pretty sure I can give a user's perspective to the projects at the camp. I've got a lot of my own projects for the research community though if there's interest.

Hi everyone!

My name is Hareesh Nagaraj - currently living in San Francisco, CA but originally from Washington, DC. I work on a decentralized music project called Audius (our whitepaper for some more detail).

For breakfast I had a tall cup of coffee, but am looking forward to a thicc burmese tea leaf salad for lunch :)

IPFS to me is such an incredibly exciting technology for many reasons - after working on centralized distributed systems (specifically transactional replication for distributed storage) at Microsoft for about 3 years, coming to the land of decentralized storage about a year ago has been extremely refreshing.

I think the implications that IPFS and Filecoin have are society-shifting, and am incredibly stoked to be a part of this camp.

The main thing I am looking forward to at this camp is to meet other folks who are interested in IPFS, learning about how and what they have built, and the opportunities to dive deep into the technical underpinnings of the protocol and how they work.

My day to day work involves IPFS pretty intensely - we have developed a content availability mechanism within Audius to guarantee CID retrieval through public gateways and it is incredible how well this system works. While there are a few particular asks we have from IPFS, the functionality in terms of throughput and latency is honestly quite impressive.

Personally, I am very interested in IPFS desktop / git on IPFS / peer resolution during retrieval (DHT traversal basically) / more decentralized ipfs cluster + pinset management / so many other things.

P.S. If you are a musician and would like a beta invite to Audius, please reach out to me!

"The possibilities" is the best answer coming in my mind spontaneously. Not even IPFS in particular, I see a lot of new stuff happening, and I want to help and participate; in something, I like to call "Human Cooperation Singularity."

Here, you can meet me for sure:

My long-time project is to bring together:

  • big "bullshit-job" companies, i.e., big money, big customers, and an overcrowded bench with old-skilled high paid and demotivated employees
  • cutting-edge technologies, its companies, and its communities
  • my love to learn and to be creative, e.g., as Go developer

馃實 And, concerning the Anthropocene, I want to be more a part of the solution than of the problem. I'm concerned about or interested in climate change, globalization, digital transformation, and all the socio-economical context which is changing rapidly.
It's serious, but not hopeless. Who, if not us, and when, if not now.鉁岋笍

Now I'm looking forward to tomorrow afternoon when I will have arrived in Barcelona at the IPFS camp. 馃槉

Hi everyone!!!
I'm Enrico Marino, from Rome!
I usually have capuccino and toasts with butter and wild berry jam for breakfast,
but I love to taste local traditional dishes when I travel abroad...

I've spent the past 7 years in the academic world (as a researcher)
to researching novel methodologies and technologies to build websites:
actually, I've always been passionate about the Web,
in particular as world wide platform for sharing knowledge.

What excite me most about IPFS is its resilient design
and its capability to address the problems the Web suffers from,
being a truly distributed infrastructure to build upon,
based on protocols which aim to future-proof systems.

Currently, I'm working on a Distributed Web platform, called Desidera,
composed by a (Distributed) Web CMS, (of course) based on IPFS, called IPWS,
and a Front-End Web Framework, based on WebComponents, called Pantarei:
actually, I've focused the most on the Front-End side... I'll happy to share more about it!

I'm interested in a lot of core and elective courses, deep dives and lighting talks,
and you probably will see me talk at the unconf session...!
I'm looking forward to attend the camp and meeting you all!

Hello, I am John Kane from Glasgow in Scotland (if you head north from Winterfell, cross the Wall into the True North then west to the sea you'll soon get there).

I had a cup of tea for breakfast.

Why am I excited about IPFS? Well, providing a global 1st Amendment right to free speech and thought, through a network protocol that wins by the grinding inevitability of cheap compute, storage and communication ... yeah that is kinda cool. BUT if it will also help me sync data between two legacy enterprise systems through achingly easy equality comparisons ... I am crying tears of joy into my keyboard at the thought.

I am really excited for the deep dives on IPLD and building dapps. I want to hear more about mustekala. I am a javascript contractor so IPFS and ethereum are not the day job but I have been messing around with a small IPLD access library (alright sod it, an ORM, God forgive me) called merkling.

Hey people,

I'm Michael Mur茅, from Strasbourg in France, just on the border with Germany.

I've been toying around distributed app and P2P network for a long time, fascinated by how powerful they can be. We live in a world where the economic incentives have been for a long time in favor a centralization, where massive silo of personal data are created without much control, with all the dangers that represent. "But we just need a DHT and some data pipe, and everyone can be in control of their data again!". I experimented with that, again and again (very badly, mind you).

And then I discovered IPFS during the alpha release of go-ipfs. I was blown away. It was someone had taken my very rough dreamy idea and made them real, only 10 times better. That's why I'm excited about IPFS. It spawn a huge new space of possible solutions, where we can reclaim control on our personal life and stop being pawn of the advertisement industry.

I kept pushing around this, eventually working on yet another attempt. Arbore, a p2p file-sharing app for personal data, IPFS based of course.

Nowadays, I'm working at INFURA, building high scale IPFS infrastructure. If you wonder how building a centralized solution with decentralized technology make sense, well, I think that it can be a complement, without vendor locking. I'm very much interested to know how we can help your projects!

Ho, I'm also the author of git-bug, a decentralized offline first bug tracker embedded in git. Not on IPFS though .... yet :-)

Hi,

I'm Shawn Rutledge, from Phoenix Arizona, but have been living in Oslo, Norway for 8 years, working at the Qt Company (formerly known as Digia, Nokia, and Trolltech). Qt is not doing anything with IPFS (yet!) but Qt includes a very old lightweight HTML implementation called QTextDocument (QTextBrowser is the rendering widget), and I've been adding direct support for markdown to that.

As a spare-time project I've been creating a WYSIWYG markdown editor that can read and write content on IPFS, using the http gateway API so far. As part of that I'm writing a KIO slave which adds IPFS support to KDE. My goal is to build a better hypertext solution than the web as we know it: like Xanadu, with bidirectional links and transclusions and history; also to explore how the semantic web concepts could fit in to such a system. I like the idea of using pure Markdown for that because of the transparency it brings: browser-side Javascript will not be part of the content, consequently most of the evils of the web will be impossible in their current form. The source text shall be human-readable and directly accessible this time. But I'm also interested in storing and broadcasting data sets, which seems mostly orthogonal so far.

I feel that I need a much better understanding of how to use IPLD to build data structures. I worry about the granularity problem mostly: when you build structures in memory, you use lots of pointers; but if you replace pointers with CIDs, you can't afford to use as many of them; and anyway paths to specific pieces of data will be even longer than plain CIDs. So it seems that the data structures will need to be designed differently, storing data in bigger chunks. I wonder if there could somehow be a way to compactly store a hash plus a delta though.

IPFS excites me because I've been thinking for a long time about how to address content across very large distributed systems, but it seems like so far there is still no better technique than using the hash of the content somehow, and thus making making the storage machine-independent and making redundancy easy. IPFS appears to be the best implementation of this idea so far.

For breakfast today I had smoked mackerel on whole-grain bread with sliced tomatoes, then coffee and toast. (I'm preparing for a long day after all.)

For breakfast I had an avocado toast, a poached egg, and an orange juice - it was what Barcelona welcomed me with :)

I鈥檓 a big believer in human collaboration, it鈥檚 the foundation of everything we achieved as species and what truly is a human trait. That鈥檚 why I鈥檓 passionate about designing systems that help people collaborate.

I鈥檓 working on Anytype. It lets makers turn their ideas into software products without any programming skills and infrastructure costs. Anytype uses a modular software approach to a graphical user interface that allows users to create software products in a visual way. Because Anytype uses p2p protocols as a backbone, everything created with Anytype is owned by creators, supports full data-ownership, and allows to collaborate without compromising on privacy.

I鈥檓 excited about IPFS, because the web became the most important technology for human collaboration and we better have the right foundation for it. For me, it means that every user should have the right to private thoughts and communication, but at the same time that he or she can exercise freedom of speech.
