IPFS Weekly 53

by Jenn Turner on 2019-08-06

Welcome to the IPFS Weekly. 👋

The InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) is a new hypermedia distribution protocol, addressed by content and identity. IPFS enables the creation of completely distributed applications. It aims to make the web faster, safer, and more open. Since that’s a pretty large scope, we track development across the ecosystem in this weekly dispatch.

Announcing the IPFS Project Q3 Priorities & Working Groups

Earlier this summer, the IPFS team got together to create a plan to make IPFS performant, stable, high quality and updated regularly - and ready to grow even more. Check out the plan, along with remixed working groups and more!

Introducing Multiple-Choice Lessons in ProtoSchool

Did you know that not every lesson in ProtoSchool includes a coding challenge? ProtoSchool has long supported both coding exercises and text-based lessons, but today we’re introducing a new lesson type: multiple-choice. 🎉

As the author of a tutorial, you can now present the learner with a multiple-choice quiz after she reads the text of your lesson, adding some interactivity and a chance to check comprehension before moving on to the next topic. Learn more about building ProtoSchool tutorials.
