Fluence Project Update February-March 2019
We’re working hard to keep more great news flowing, here’s today’s agenda:
- The Fluence Devnet: live and available for the developers.
- Community Blockchain Week (March 2019, Paris): Fluence events (including meetups and workshops), Ethereum Magicians video and more.
- Demo Night with Near and Cosmos in Berlin.
The Fluence Devnet Launch
The Fluence network combines fast responses to the client with game-theory based mechanics of postponed validation that ensures punishment for the nodes behaving incorrectly.
The Devnet is the first incarnation of the Fluence network that provides real-time code execution in a decentralized network. It is capable of running high-load applications with a massive userbase since day one and offers ready-to-use databases out of the box.
It contains all the tool set needed to start building with Fluence and provides a straightforward developer experience allowing to deploy and launch a decentralized SQL database app right from the network dashboard and instantly incorporate it into the application.
The Devnet is built for the developers and early testers and comes with a handy toolset that will make building and deploying for Fluence much simpler:
- Command-line utility — provides a convenient interface for the developer to solve mundane tasks: register/delete Fluence nodes, deploy code, etc.
- WebAssembly Rust SDK — A Rust library to make it easier to develop and deploy your own backend/database.
- Network Dashboard — a monitoring UI for the Fluence network that provides a convenient visual interface to see the current state of the nodes that execute your code and the whole network.
- A set of tutorials, such as: a guessing game or the workshop example: a dice-game with decentralized backend and frontend integration.
- Documentation describing the Devnet in detail and in depth.
All these apps will exist in a decentralized network each inside a small efficient cluster with Tendermint consensus — and these are not some future plans, this functionality is already up and running.
You can see the current network state and stats (number of active nodes and apps) on the dashboard in real-time.
While the idea of Fluence is evolving, we stick to our origins: launching an SQL database inside of a decentralized network — how cool is that?
If you are a developer working with blockchain tech, help us make the next big leap with two easy steps:
1. Check out the docs, dashboard, and tutorials.
2. Share your feedback, ideas or questions have with us on Discord, Telegram or email.
Fluence at The Community Blockchain Week in Paris
With the Devnet available we’re now focusing on inviting developers to tackle with it and get the taste of how rich decentralized applications could be run on Fluence.
- We’ve shared more insights and thoughts behind the DApp Developer Survey at a developer meetup with MakerDAO and State of the Dapps team at the legendary Coinhouse office (where the Ledger Nano was created).
- Joined forces with IPFS and NuCypher for the developer meetup. The recording is available here.
The icing on the cake was the Devnet dedicated workshops where Dmitry showed how you could deploy your app to a cluster in the network, set up a database, and create a front-end integration all within less than an hour time.
🎂 Ethereum Magicians Paris Council celebrates its first anniversary 🎉 More than seventy people had gathered for a discussion and round-table session, while ten times as much (over 700 views) in watched online stream sponsored by Fluence.
Fluence, Near, Cosmos in Berlin
Following the positive feedback in Paris, we’re arranging a whole new event in Berlin!
We invite everyone passionate about decentralized technology and where it could bring us: see it in action on Monday!
