We're celebrating the FVM launch, bringing design-minded folks together with a talk and a meetup, and connecting with brilliant leaders in the Web3 and DWeb communities.

Filecoin Virtual Machine Hacker Base - Feb 28th + March 1st

Filecoin Foundation is gearing up for the exciting release of the Filecoin Virtual Machine (FVM), and they are celebrating the launch at their EthDenver Hacker Base. There were lightning talks, hands-on workshops, presentations on FVM, and more.

On the first day we heard from several speakers from the Protocol Labs Network. One of the highlights was Aysun's presentation on NFT.Storage and Web3.Storage, and the work they are doing to make NFT storage a public good. Aysun also shared how they are integrating UCANs into their stack!

Secure Design: Nailing UX Without Sacrificing Security

Feb 28 @ 9:40 AM - 9:55 AM @ FVM Hacker Base on Upper Larimer

When it comes to Web3, we all want to get UX right — but we can't compromise the fact it needs to be secure by design. This talk touched on Filecoin specifics, but was relevant to folks building secure interfaces of all stripes, on any chain. We identified where the biggest challenges lay, patterns from other ecosystems, unique capabilities of the FVM and the design and engineering opportunities ripest for the picking. And, as a bonus, we took a look at what's coming with IPVM (InterPlanetary Virtual Machine) and how it will effect your secure designs.
