Upcoming Events

Secure / Design Community Call: The Secure / Design community aims to establish a set of principles to guide secure design practices, heuristics to evaluate whether those principles are being upheld, and UX patterns and best practices to make upholding the principles a bit easier for the protocols, platforms, and products that folks rely upon every day. Their current focus is improving authorization and signing flows.

IPVM Community Call: The IPVM is an effort to add content-addressed computation to IPFS. This requires specifying calling conventions, distributed scheduling, session receipts, mobile computing, and auto-upgradable IPFS internals. The Community Call is open to all but is focused on implementers, following the IETF's rough "consensus and running code" ethos.

​​UCAN Community Call: The UCAN Community Call is a monthly recurring time for library implementers, spec maintainers, and users to coordinate, share learnings, and ask questions.
