IPFS San Francisco Meetup: The Permanent, Distributed Web

location 121 2nd St | 7:30 PM-9 PM Tuesday 20 October 2015 (PST)

Join us at Sourcegraph HQ San Francisco for snacks, drinks, discussion and a talk by Juan Benet on IPFS!

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.


We kindly ask everyone to be there at 7:30pm so that we can start the meetup timely. The agenda will look like:

  • IPFS and the motivation on why we must distribute the Web
  • MerkleDAG
  • Network Stack
  • Demos
  • swarmchan
  • ipscend
  • moaaar |TBA|

Who is this meetup for?

This meetup is for everyone interested in: - IPFS and its development - P2P Protocols - Distributed File Systems - New Web Technologies - Internet Infrastructure - Security & Privacy - Cryptography

There is no previous knowledge required to part of the meetup. However, if you'd like to understand more about IPFS, see the Alpha demo and the Whitepaper for more details. The hands-on introduction is also a good resource and covers all the basics.


The meetup will happen at Sourcegraph offices in San Francisco, 121 2nd St (between Mission and Howard), 2nd Floor. Doors open at 7:30pm.
