🎙️ Software Engineers Podcast 🎙️ Episode 6 with Mathias Buus
Hypercore Protocol Lead
Note for the regular listeners: It's been almost two months, since last episode. I didn't give up on my podcast haha. But I am giving up on regularity. For now every episode were released on the 22nd day of each month. But the nature of my podcast of interviewing a guest, can sometimes be complex to meet deadlines. Also like anybody sometimes you are busy at work or with kids, etc. So now my episodes will release as soon as they are ready. With at best a month interval between them. Thanks for your understanding!
For this episode of the Software Engineers Podcast, I invited Mathias Buus. Mathias is a software engineer based in Denmark and currently the lead of the Hypercore Protocol. He defines himself as an NodeJS and P2P enthusiast.
He was an early adopter of NodeJS and since then he published and maintain himself almost 1,000 packages on npm. After discussing his background, I questioned Mathias on his different contributions like Dazaar, Beaker Browser, and the Hypercore Protocol.
Maybe you wonder what is the Hypercore Protocol?
Hypercore Protocol is a peer-to-peer data network built on the Hypercore logs. Hypercores are signed, append-only logs. They're like lightweight blockchains without the consensus algorithm. As with BitTorrent, as more people "seed" a dataset, it will increase the available bandwidth. More details on hypercore-protocol.org.
