Decentralized Web Meetup Amsterdam
Fission is running a month long series of Decentralized Web Meetups all around Europe.
The goal is to bring together both those already working on decentralized web topics, as well as introduce a broad set of developers to what is possible today, and showcase projects and tech tools for developers to use.
In Amsterdam, we are pleased to have many partners joining us, including the Blockchain NL Foundation, the amazing connector Berit Fuss of mistudio, and our venue sponsors, Blockchain Village @ Startup Village.
IPFS and Fission Live, Brooklyn Zelenka
Brooklyn Zelenka will be presenting InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) 101, and how Fission uses it to let you build hostless web apps that go live from your laptop.

Decentralized Mapping, Bèr Kessels
Maps are a crucial element for many apps and startups. But maps are hard to make, expensive and very centralised. Even open source projects like Open Street Map are very much centralised, and therefore easily censored. As a developer working on decentralised applications, you'll want to have access to decentralised maps as well.
In this talk, we'll walk through the current state of the online mapping tools. And dive into the various projects that make mapping, data-collection or -contributing for maps, decentralised.
Bèr Kessels is founder and developer of PlaceBazaar, one of the projects that aims to decentralise mapping. The placebazaar code is mirrored to github on https://github.com/placebazaar/. You can find Bèr and all his social links on keybase https://keybase.io/berkes_
After the short presentations and Q&A, we will have have time for networking and getting to know everyone.
We are happy to help promote local community projects and events! We'll leave room at the event for announcements and sharing. Come prepared to get up and speak, or get in touch if you have other material you'd like to distribute.
Thank you for your support
