Prophet is a new peer to peer distributed database designed to help ease the transition to post-web-2.0 applications.
With Prophet, it’s easy to build custom database applications and synchronize your data with your friends and coworkers – all without a central server.
Prophet supports arbitrary topology synchronization and has an advanced conflict resolution database which helps make sure that the entire database ‘network’ works its way toward consistency even when disconnected users make conflicting choices about how to resolve any given conflict.
In this talk, Jesse will present Prophet’s architecture along with some of the early applications built with Prophet.
