Internet of Peers

A talk about how you can take a bunch of different computers, all connected to the internet, and make direct connections between them even with firewalls guarding their access to the network. I'll introduce the basics of network hole punching, show how you can use technology like the BitTorrent DHT and DNS to easily discovery peers on the internet in a massively distributed way, and finally how we can combine all of this into a internet-scale network of micro services.
