Lab Day August 2018

Jesse Clayburgh on October 23, 2018

On August 18th we held our first ever Lab Day: a day-long event dedicated to contributors and collaborators in the Protocol Labs ecosystem. Our goal with Lab Day was to gather our community to share and collaborate with each other in a fun and inspiring environment. We heard presentations from a wide array of researchers, developers, and contributors to the IPFS, libp2p, IPLD, and Filecoin ecosystems.

We’d like to extend our warmest thanks to all who attended, contributed, and made the event such a success.
