IPFS: Introduction & Hands-on Demo

    8:30am - 9:00am   //   Dan Shields, Founding Member @ Cryptorado

IPFS: Why Should I care? Join us to understand the motivations and innovations behind IPFS and it’s friends under active development by Protocol Labs. These technologies are driving some amazing decentralized applications, and making safer, faster, and reliable web for us all. This session will include a an overview of ProtoSchool tutorials that you can dive into to learn more on your own at open free coworking on site available throughout the day - and the experts in DWeb are here to help you if you happen to get stuck!

NOTE: completion of ProtoSchool tutorials and tweeting about it on completion will be worth BuffiDAO XP if you show us at the ETHDenver IPFS booth! You just need to add the #DNSummit tag and @CryptroradoCom handle to qualify!

Decentralized Networks in Action: Corroborator

    9:00am - 9:30am   //   Dan Shields & Ian Philips, Co-founders @ Corroborator

How do auditors trust image integrity and provenance? Corroborator is a simple, easy to use, yet extremely robust data verification system:

  • Cryptographically signed and secured image and it's metadata (user,device, location, ect.) - at time of capture
  • Fingerprint of data logged indelibly on (public or private) distributed database - a secure blockchain
  • All data distributed across users & auditors - optional hybrid on/offline mesh
  • Auditor interface for fool-proof image data integrity - multiple cross-verififications

Corroborator is built with IPFS and Blockchain at it's core. In this presentation we will explore the architecture of the suite of applications and explain the features that make these decentralized systems the perfect tools to make this application possible.

Kauri, and How We Use IPFS

    9:30am - 10:00am   //   Dan Shields, Founding Member @ Cryptorado

An interactive demo of ProtoSchool tutorials and more!!!

Tools for Launching Useful IPFS Websites

    10:00am - 10:30am   //   Braden Pezeshki, CTO @ Unstoppable Domains

Blockchain domains allow users to replace cryptocurrency addresses with human readable names and build censorship resistant websites. Our presentation will cover our new browser and our website builder tools that make it easy for anyone to launch a website on the decentralized web. Unstoppable Domains is a San Francisco-based company building domains on blockchains. The company is backed by Draper Associates and Boost VC and has received grants from the Ethereum Foundation and the Zilliqa Foundation. Unstoppable Domains has had over 2v00,000 domain registrations to date.

    Join us for a workshop directly after!

Coffee, tea, light snacks & networking.

Using IPFS via S3 For Decentralized Applications

    11:00am - 11:30am   //   Alex Trottier, CTO RTrade Technologies

Using our Minio TemporalX gateway, we will showcase building one or more of the following traditional applications leveraging the (almost) full benefits of IPFS, without ever needing to use it directly for Email Systems, Media Servers, and more. Additionally we’ll talk about how the Minio TemporalX gateway lowers the barrier to entry for IPFS in enterprise applications, and how you can begin transitioning existing applications to IPFS based without redesigning your application.

Challenges and Solutions of Hosting Cryptorado on IPFS-Cluster

    11:30am - 12:00pm   //   Brian Picciano, Contributing Member @ Cryptorado

A brief talk followed by open discussion of the ultimate vision for how Cryptorado’s site is hosted, and how that’s being accomplished via IPFS-Cluster and other tools.

Accelerating IPFS Ecosystem: Let a billion nodes bloom!

    12:00pm - 12:30pm   //   Dietrich Ayala, Browsers & Ecosystems @ Protocol Labs

A view into the ecosystem and browser development work we're doing in the IPFS project to create an amazing developer experience, contributor experience, and bring IPFS to the platforms that'll enable massive network growth into the future.

Access Control and Data Monetization with iExec and IPFS

    1:30pm - 2:00pm   //   Hadrien Croubois, Lead Research Engineer @ iExec

IPFS is the perfect tool for sharing data with tamper-proof guarantees. A downside is that data stored on IPFS is public. However, there is no way to control exactly who has access to this data and under what circumstances. How can we optimize the distributed network of IPFS to deal with private and confidential data?

iExec offers a platform for decentralized off-chain computing, targeting cloud users as well as blockchain smart contracts. Trusted computation is achieved using a mix of hardware-based security and on-chain consensus and audibility.

This talk will take a deep dive into the mechanisms, ready to use today, that allows you to control access to private data by third parties, from the blockchain-level on-chain governance to the off-chain cryptography.

Writing Smart Contracts for a Sharded Blockchain

    2:00pm - 2:30pm   //   Kendall Cole, Core Team @ NEAR

Technology is a leverage on human activities since the beginning of time. Internet in particular enabled new types of activities, new ways for people to socialize, communicate and interact and made a society more interconnected and global as never before. Over time, the incentives on the Internet shifted power towards large corporations who use data moats and act in their own interests, not interests of global communities. Internet started by having open protocols, and the way forward is to bring these old ideas (open protocols), but combining them with powerful new technologies and incentive structures to enable open web. Open web will be beneficial to developers, entrepreneurs, creators and users. Open web stack will consist of underlying technology providers (e.g. NEAR, IPFS), set of programming tools (e.g. WASM, Rust, TypeScript), set of protocols (e.g. MakerDAO, Open Social), applications and end-user interfaces (e.g. Brave Browser, Wallets).

IPFS & Blockchain for Decentralized App Development

    2:30pm - 3:00pm   //   Wes Morgan, Engineer @ Tupelo

When is IPFS enough? When do you need to bring in a blockchain? A discussion and a demo of how blockchain and IPFS can complement each other. I’ll be using the Tupelo decentralized app development platform in my demo.

Dynamic data: KV stores, document trails, and verifiable messages on IPFS

    3:00pm - 3:30pm   //   Carson Farmer, Research & Andrew Hill, CEO @ Textile

Decentralize your app from the inside out. In this workshop, we’ll walk you through the steps of launching, hosting, and maintaining your Dapp’s content, assets, and data using IPFS. It’s not hard anymore to use decentralized protocols, but even some of the best Dapps still use S3. This workshop should help your app stand out at this year’s #BUIDLathon and, well, forever.

    Join us for a workshop directly after!

Networking & Coffee

    3:30pm - 4:00pm   //   The Whole Gang!

Adventures with building browser js-ipfs apps

    4:00pm - 4:30pm   //   Joel Thorstensson, Co-Founder @ 3Box

IPFS is not only about static file hosting, but dynamic data. js-ipfs makes it possible to bring the full potential of IPFS directly to users in their browsers. In this talk Joel will take you though his experiences in making this work in the 3Box SDK.

The Graph's Path to Web3

    4:30pm - 5:00pm   //   Yaniv Tal, Project Lead @ The Graph

Decentralization has captured the hearts and minds of developers but not many dApps have succeeded in attaining product-market fit. It’s possible that we need to change how we think about building applications on the Web3 platform. In this talk we’ll propose uses cases, design patterns, and behavior changes required for getting Web3 to a critical mass of adoption.

Explore the tech behind decentralized ISPs in a hands-on way.

    5:00pm - 5:30pm   //   Deborah Simpier, Co-founder and COO of Althea

A presentation of Althea’s tech that allows neighbors to pay neighbors for bandwidth and the progress of the networks deployed. Then, set up a simple network with antennas and a wifi hotspot for participants to connect to, ssh in, and explore. Uses xDAI or ETH for payments. Althea is a system that lets routers pay each other for bandwidth. This allows people to set up decentralized ISPs in their communities. In an Althea network, instead of one ISP at the top collecting monthly payments, many different people can earn money by expanding and strengthening the network.

  Bring A laptop to connect to routers and/or a mobile device to explore the wifi hotspot!
