I am scheduled to speak at BOB Conf on February 24th 2017 at 17:10 about:
From the programm:
Blockchain technology like Bitcoin popularised the concept of decentralised consensus. Together with the rise of peer-to-peer technologies, it becomes possible to entirely decouple data-ownership from its physical storage and reorganise information in a privacy-sensitive manner. SAFE is a decentralised communication and storage network with a local-group-consensus mechanism to ensure consistency. But without central servers how do you organise user-generated content – like comments on a blog?
In this talk, we will explore the privacy-first data structures employed on SAFE, how you can use cryptography to provide access control on the data layer directly and thus rethink the idea of “central storage in the cloud”. Finally, we will take a short look into the important role functional programming will play in these networks in the future.
BOB is the conference for developers, architects and decision-makers to explore technologies beyond the mainstream in software development, and to find the best tools available to software developers today. Our goal is for all participants of BOB to return home with new insights that enable them to improve their own software development experiences.
The program features 14 talks and 8 tutorials on current topics:
The subject range of talks includes functional programming, advanced front-end development, and sophisticated uses of types.
The tutorials feature introductions to Haskell, Swift, PureScript, React, QuickCheck, Agda, CRDTs and Servant.
