Self-organized Discussion on Peer-to-Peer Database Approaches

Feedback form is now closed.
Peer-to-peer databases are on the cutting-edge of what's possible with the decentralized web. Under the umbrella of eventually consistent model/view architectures, peer-to-peer databases are tackling problems using a variety of approaches to architectures, storage, indexes, user identities, discovery, and synchronization. There are a lot of open questions with a variety of partially-solved answers. This is a meet-and-greet and workshop for folks who are actively building these peer-to-peer databases, as well as for new people who are interested in getting involved. Participants will introduce themselves, their interests, and what they think are the biggest challenges that need attention. We will then create self-organized breakout groups to identify and discuss various approaches to these challenges.

Hopes & Dreams
After DWeb Camp, these discussions would ideally lead to some common approaches or even common code that can be shared between disparate projects that have overlapping interests.

Everyone interested in contributing to peer-to-peer databases

Why Participate?
Ideally this discussion would be held on Friday, so that folks who are interested in these topics are able to identify each other a little bit easier over the weekend. For those who are new, they could come out of the discussion with some ideas of how to get involved in projects.

Session Rundown
Unconference style, 30 minutes of introductions, 1 hour of breakout, 30 minutes of report back (if desired)
