Almost two years at Protocol Labs

Protocol Labs (PL) is a research and development institution for improving the Internet technology. Focusing on IPFS, the InterPlanetary File System, we’re building a decentralised, P2P and content-addressable network for future-proofing the web.

In late 2017, I was offered an Open Source Scholarship at Protocol Labs with the intent of revamping some of their GUI projects. After a year at PL, I wrote a blog post about my experience so far. In the meanwhile, I have been promoted to Software Engineer.
