Providing data via IPFS: We'll introduce how IPFS uses the Kademlia algorithm to find peers and announce the blocks they have in a way that others can find them.

Finding data on IPFS: We'll go over how we use Bitswap to ask connected peers for the CIDs you want, and to verify the data you receive.

Managing the data in your local node: By default, your IPFS node caches and provides every block it has. We'll cover how to use pinning and pin types to manage what blocks your node keeps locally, and how garbage collecting keeps your repo size under control.
