All Dat and More
An interview with Dat Project founder Max Ogden, live from Offline Camp California
Faced with terabytes of scientific research data, Max Ogden helped to build the Dat Project, an open source, decentralized tool for versioning and syncing data changes across distributed sets. At Offline Camp California last month, Max sat down with camp co-organizer Bradley Holt to discuss what makes Dat ideal for storing and moving researching data, how Offline First can combat 404 errors, what to expect at CSV Conf, how Max got started with Apache CouchDB, and how he’s combined his love of data collection with his love of cats. It’s all here for you in the latest episode of the New Builders Podcast:
In Max’s chat with Bradley he mentions the P2P Beaker Browser, which uses both Dat and IPFS protocols. Stay tuned for an upcoming podcast episode featuring my own interview with fellow camper Paul Frazee, creator of Beaker.
