Tech Talk #7: Bitcoin & IPFS - the Future of the Web?

The web is in danger from centralization and regulations. During a Tech Talk, we will look into two technologies that are really cool on their own and that can be part of a foundation for a new and more democratic INTERNET.

 

Bitcoin and the lightning network:

We will briefly describe how the Bitcoin blockchain works, what its limitations are, and why. Then we will talk about the exciting Lightning Network, and how it can help us scale Bitcoin to the future of internet payments system. This will enable sub-second transactions, micropayments, and all of it almost without fees.

Finally, if we have time and the demo gods are with us, we will demo live lightning transactions.

 

IPFS and the distributed web:

We will also give you an introduction to the distributed web in the incarnation of IPFS – a really cool platform that retains the original vision of the web and makes it truly distributed. We will go through a couple of problem areas with the current internet infrastructure and how IPFS fits into this vision, we will also look at some typical use cases for IPFS and note how it fits rather nicely as a storage option for blockchain applications.

 

About the speakers:

Mats Henricson has been programming for almost 40 years, most of what he has learned is a compost from where weird flowers grow. Today it is mostly Java, REST and databases. On evenings and weekends he has been engulfed in everything Bitcoin for about 8 years, but deep down all he wants to do is be on his bicycle.

Fredrik Rubensson is a senior developer and mentor at Go See Talents. He has been developing things for the web for more than two decades and is an advocate of a free and open internet.

D-tjejer

D-tjejer - ett professionellt yrkesnätverk för tjejer som läst Data/Mediateknik på universitet och högskola

Vi har länge saknat ett forum där vi tjejer som läst datateknik eller liknande kan dela erfarenheter, nätverka och hjälpa varandra i våra yrkesroller. Tjejer är fortfarande en minoritet på de tekniska utbildningarna på universitet och högskolor och vi behöver stötta varandra. Därför startar vi nu gruppen D-tjejer med förhoppningen att skapa just en sådan mötesplats. 

Kom förbi vårt första mingel den 16 oktober! Vi har bokat bord på Duvel Café på Vasagatan 50 där vi kan dricka ett glas bubbel och dela med oss av våra erfarenheter och lärdomar. Bjud gärna in era egna D-tjejnätverk så vi hjälps åt att växa den här gruppen!

Mer information och anmälan till minglet hittar du på https://d-tjejer.eventbrite.com.au.
