IPFS Portland OSCON Meetup: The Permanent, Distributed Web

Join us at CtrlH for food, drinks, discussion and a talk by Juan Benet on IPFS during OSCON week!

What is IPFS?

IPFS is a distributed file system that seeks to connect all computing devices with the same system of files. In some ways, this is similar to the original aims of the Web, but brings in the latest ideas from P2P and cryptography to form a distributed, permanent web.

IPFS could become a new major subsystem of the internet. If built right, it could complement or replace HTTP. It could complement or replace even more. It sounds crazy. It is crazy! We also think it's the future of the web. Come see it in action, and meet the team of developers working on it.

Afterwards hang out, talk tech, hack, recharge your batteries, use our fast WiFi and get a tour of CtrlH, Portland’s newest and largest hackerspace.

See you there!

I will be teaching a short lesson on character modeling for those of you who want to get started in 3D and then we'll get some projects gong and work independently- this is both for beginners and those more experienced users who enjoy working in community settings and showing off what they've got.

We'll be meeting at CTRL^H at 6:30 in the Craft Lab, which is right next to the main building.

An Introduction to Pure Data (free DorkbotPDX workshop)

DorkbotPDX is happy to offer a free workshop as an introduction to Pure Data (Pd).

When: Sunday, November 15th, 2015. 1-5pm Where: Ctrl-H Hackerspace, 7608 N. Interstate, PDX, OR

Bring: A laptop and headphones

Instructors: Jesse Mejia, Alex Norman, Jason Plumb


In this 4-hour course, students will learn the basics of Pd and will have fun developing foundational Pd patching skills.

Pure Data (Pd) is a free, open-source, community supported data flow language and coding environment with an emphasis on sound, music, and multimedia. It was originally written by Miller Puckette (also the original author of Max/Max MSP) and runs on Linux, Mac OSX, Android, and Windows.

Pd has been used widely in the creation of art -- such as music, sound art, visual art, generative, new-media, and interactive art. Pd interfaces readily with MIDI equipment and many popular microcontrollers.

We have curriculum posted here:

Beginners are welcome. No prior computer programming or sound programming experience is required!

Notes: Students should attempt to install Pd prior to the workshop...but if not, no biggie. We can help with that!

Seating is limited to 20 participants. Please RSVP to [email protected] to reserve a spot.

Attendees will respect The DorkbotPDX code of conduct and will be asked to donate.
