Working IPFS Systems: A Love/War Story
Hannah Howard

I've been working on IPFS and Filecoin for 5 years -- including many of the technologies you probably use daily. But it hasn't always been easy, and I'd be lying if I said our technologies have really provided a better internet yet. What I'd like to talk about are some lessons learned, and what I see as some useful best practices for building IPFS systems that work -- that can actually provide value to real users.

Saturn Workshop: Easy on ramps, easy off ramps — Bridging Web2 to Web3
Hannah Howard, Ansgar Grunseid, Alan Shaw, Jen B

Saturn and DAG House present a joint workshop exploring how a typical web 2 customer can onboard and make use of the world of IPFS content addressing, without having to buy into unconventional protocols, networking setups, or technologies. Can we unlock the benefits of verifiability, trustlessness, and decentralization without users having to change any of their behavior?
