I’ve just came back from FOSDEM 2020 full of ideas and impressions. I think I’d rather do a quick post now than forget all the stuff.

Talk given at IPFS Camp
What if your web browser truly reflected your values - advocating for you, filtering for you, connecting you to others on your terms. What if your browser could be a full nodes in a distributed networks, or just connect directly to your friend’s computer without intermediaries?
While we’re waiting for mainstream browsers to catch up with our needs, we can experiment with building our own. What if you could build your own browser? What would it look like? What values would it have? What capabilities would it need to have?
We’ll show how browsers act as a value filter on our world, teach some approaches to making the browser truly be an agent that represents you_, and break into groups to start building our own _true user agents.
Gave two talks at the event, one about extending LC IDE and another about process farming.
André Garzia (https://twitter.com/soapdog), a Tech Speaker at Mozilla focused on decentralisation technologies and an active member of the Secure Scuttlebutt community, talked about “Libdweb: towards a user agent that fosters decentralization”. Don’t forget to visit our Medium to know more about the speakers.
Gave a talk about building a drink mixing machine with JS.

Mozilla Festival 2018
It is hard to describe MozFest for those that have never been there or even saw the pictures. The best I can say it is like a festival, like burning man or coachella, but for the intersections of networks, culture and digital realm. It is a chaotic ambient, where ideas storm and collide and beautiful things are made. Some of these things are like little seeds that will grow all over our beautiful planet.
Three years ago, I remember MozFest having 1500 attendees of which 500 were facilitators. That means that for each three people in the festival, one was there to help you learn something, unlock some skill, or build up some idea. This leads to a very powerful and empowering event. I don’t have the numbers for this year but I believe it was similar.
Talk given at Decentralized Web Summit 2018
You’ve built a distributed application platform that will change everything… but where is everyone? Browser extensions can lower the barrier to entry for early-adopters and developers to try your project. Prototyping in the browser is also a great way to experiment with what the future of the web can look like.
We’re developing a set of experimental APIs for building dweb applications using the WebExtension framework in Firefox. We’d love to have you try them out, and get your feedback and learn what you need to build dweb apps in browsers.
Join us and build your first browser extension, learn about the APIs for building dweb applications, and starting porting your project.
Lightning talk given at View Source 2018 about Loanwords, Agriculture and WebAssembly.
Spoke at JS Day Rio de Janeiro 2018 about building PWAs with Elm. Unfortunately I calculated my time usage badly and couldn’t cover all the ground I wanted.
As seen in this previous post we had a wonderful time explorind the world of Firefox Add-ons and WebExtensions.
