What is Holochain?

Holochain is an open-source development framework and distributed P2P networking protocol. It allows you to create truly serverless applications with high levels of security, reliability, and performance. Every user runs the application on their own device, creates and stores their own data, and talks directly to other users.

In this talk I introduce Holochain (a framework for building peer-to-peer applications), explain what problems it's trying to solve, show how it tries to solve them differently from blockchain and other decentralized protocols, and drop some juicy details about what you as a dev need to know if you want to start developing on it. Fun whiteboard scribbles explain the concepts along the way.
