If you're a computer programmer and you've heard of the Dat protocol but looked at the docs and still scratched your head (I was there myself a few months back), there's a new guide that explains in very clear, very detailed language what Dat is and how it works.

Just to be clear, I do not recommend it for non-programmers as that is not the intended audience but I *highly* recommend it for programmers:


@darius every time you post this, I open it on my phone and see the following. And…nope *closes*

@paulkruczynski Yeah I will relay that, I don't know why it's there. If you scroll past that it's much better.

@darius it’s funny, b/c I feel fooled every time. “Aha, here is a guide that is simple! Ahhh! My eyes!!”

I may dat:// up a site soon though. We’ll see.
