IPFS Portland Meetup: The Permanent, Distributed Web

location 7608 N Interstate Ave | 7 PM-10 PM Wednesday 22 July 2015 (PST)

Join us at CtrlH for food, drinks, discussion and a talk by Juan Benet on IPFS during OSCON week!

What is IPFS?

IPFS is a distributed file system that seeks to connect all computing devices with the same system of files. In some ways, this is similar to the original aims of the Web, but brings in the latest ideas from P2P and cryptography to form a distributed, permanent web.

IPFS could become a new major subsystem of the internet. If built right, it could complement or replace HTTP. It could complement or replace even more. It sounds crazy. It is crazy! We also think it's the future of the web. Come see it in action, and meet the team of developers working on it.

Afterwards hang out, talk tech, use our fast WiFi and get a tour of CtrlH, Portland’s newest and largest hackerspace!
