Welcome!

This is try-dat, a tutorial that teaches you how to work with datasets using dat. In this tutorial you will play around with data versioning and syncing workflows, and play with some awesome tools to publish or share data over the peer-to-peer web.

We used to host an interactive version of Try Dat that included a web based terminal, but unfortunately someone decided to take advantage of our servers to mine Bitcoin, stealing the limited resources of our nonprofit for their private gain :(

What you now find here is a tutorial you can do with a friend (recommended) using two computers, or by yourself (still works OK but not quite as fun as with a friend) using one computer.

Ok, ready to dive in? Let's go! »
