Working IPFS Systems: A Love/War Story
11-16, 11:00–11:30 (Europe/Istanbul), Asuka Theater

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.

Hannah Howard has made contributions across the IPFS ecosystem for 5 years. She wrote parts of Bitswap, all of Graphsync, most of the initial Filecoin markets protocols, and most recently Lassie, a universal retrieval client for IPFS in Go. Hannah is now lead engineer on the Saturn team, focusing on delivering a high performance web3 CDN. Before all this, Hannah just wrote web apps for people, and before that, she spend 10 years working in non-profits.
