Introducing P2PSP at the Spanish Computer Sciences Conference (CEDI)

P2PSP Layers

Our colleagues Leo and Juan Álvaro attended the Spanish Computer Sciences Conferece  (CEDI) which took place last September at the Complutense University of Madrid. They had the chance to introduce P2PSP to the Spanish scientific community which showed its interest in the proposal: the protocol was presented in public for the first time, and at the end of the exposition different suggestions raised from the public. For example, the possibility of developing a browser extension that used P2PSP for enhancing the performance of video services like Youtube (we all know how slowly videos can load thanks to our beloved ISPs...), and the implementation of a cluster splitting mechanism to be used when cluster size exceeds a given threshold.

As we can see, the feedback received by our mates was really usefull, and we will all study these suggestions for the future. You can get the presentation slides.

Introducing the P2PSP Official Web

P2PSP Official Web

After more than a year working on Launchpad, we finally have a website where we can present to the community the progress, news and P2PSP protocol implementations. We are also busy designing a logo and some content to start giving life to the Web.

Our goal is to keep the community active, learn and collaborate to obtain a simple but powerful protocol that allows the exchange of multimedia content through the network efficiently. We would like all the documentation and the code that is generated can be useful to learn about socket and communications over Internet. Therefore, we have taken the time to write a reference document which explains in detail the P2PSP protocol.

Finally, we still invite you to join the community and cooperate. Remember you can help: writing content for the Web, bug reporting, debugging code, creating their own branch, etc.

Are you ready to have fun learning?
