About this Episode

In this episode, we chat with Molly Mackinlay, Project Lead for the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) at Protocol Labs. We talk about her journey to Protocol Labs, as well as take a deeper view into IPFS, LibP2P, Bitswap, Testground, the use cases and projects working with these tools, and the specific upgrades they have made with the recent 0.5 IPFS release.

We cover:

  • the importance of distributed testing infra to facilitate enterprise adoption
  • how UX and simple tooling plays into the developer upgrade path
  • the path to decentralisation and the importance of building bridges to the Web2 world
