ResNetLab Courses: InterPlanetary Linked Data

This high level talk discusses what IPLD is, what the motivations are, how IPFS and IPLD are related, and introduces thinking about decentralized data structures made possible by hash-based linking. It's part of a larger series published by the Resilient Networks Lab about the "InterPlanetary" technologies.

Foundations for Decentralization: Data with IPLD @ GPN19

This talk introduces IPLD and is targeted at giving newcomers a rapid overview, from the top to bottom of the system. Our dream of decentralized software is introduced, how we use content-addressing and immutable linking to get there, what the IPLD Data Model is about, how we use Advanced Layouts to handle big data, and even how we use IPLD Schemas as a decentralized-development-friendly way to describe protocol evolution.
