Boom! by Tableland
Carson Farmer, Brian Hoffstein

We’re inviting developers and innovators within the Filecoin and IPFS ecosystems to propose talks for an electrifying session we’re planning called "Boom.” It will serve as the lightning talks session at IPFS Connect and aims to spotlight significant technical advancements and in-flight projects within distributed storage and blockchain technology.

Veering away from pitches or shilling, we’re calling for presentations that dive into the code and share technical insights. Each talk, limited to 5 minutes, will adhere to the Ignite/Pecha Kucha style, promoting a clear and concise conveyance of ideas.

Structured data with IPLD: How to get the most out of your static data
Carson Farmer

Putting files up on IPFS is great, but what about more structured app data like JSON, arrays, objects, indexes, and more? In this introductory talk, Carson delves into basic IPLD concepts, and ways that you can build your own verifiable data structures to support your decentralized apps on IPFS.

Transitioning from curiosity to commodity: Mainstreaming IPFS
Carson Farmer

In this discussion, panelists and participants will discuss how the IPFS ecosystem can start to "cross the chasm" between early adopters and the more pragmatic early majority. What will it take to shift IPFS from a question (should I use IPFS?) to an answer (you should use IPFS!).
