æternity crypto foundation debuts Video Interviews with Grant Recipients
Watch the kick-off interview with Tino Breddin.
The æternity crypto foundation is happy to announce that video interviews will be conducted with grantees from this point forward. These interviews will hopefully provide the community with a better understanding of development in progress and overall updates, and possibly serve as an aid for others in coming up with proposals that would benefit the æternity ecosystem.
Development and progress are of the highest priority on the æternity platform. These videos will be regularly posted as the æternity team expands.
To kick off this effort, æternity crypto foundation Developer and Technical Marketing Manager, Pegah Ghojavand, spoke with Tino Breddin, who is currently working on extending the core team’s feature development through the following efforts:
(1) Existing core features will be refactored to incorporate the experience gathered using/running them in the mainnet. Eligible core features (e.g. possibly mempool) will be identified and prioritized in collaboration with the core team. Refactoring focuses on keeping feature-parity and as such backwards-compatibility while improving the feature’s production-readiness. Such changes may improve performance, maintainability and reliability of the respective core feature.
(2) While core feature development is rapid, new features are often complex and require easy-to-use demos to be approachable for users (e.g. state channels). Therefore, demos need to be developed in collaboration with the team creating a feature, the SDK team and other teams (depending on the feature). This work intends to offload the core team by taking over the interfacing to other teams and developing respective demos such that the core team can continue improving the feature itself or take on new core features. Both work efforts require close collaboration and communication with the core team. Supporting core feature development with focus on production-readiness and demoing.
Tino is also pitching in his time and expertise to work on State Channels for the upcoming hard fork (Lima Release) and beyond as well as updating the community on the development progress in State Channels regularly in the forums.
