This is your 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. Firstly we will go through a couple of problem areas with the current internet infrastructure and how IPFS fits into this vision. We will then move on to how IPFS actually works and show some examples with Javascript. We will look at - how the files are fingerprinted, versioned and identified - how the network of IPFS nodes finds the relevant data for us - decentralized and human friendly addressing with IPNS - deploying a web site with IPFS Lastly we will look at some typical use cases for IPFS. We will note how it fits rather nicely as a storage option for blockchain applications.

Good talk as an overview to the technology.
I was expecting more details on why one should chose it, or perhaps a comparisons with DAT... but it's just because I already knew the project.
