There was a listing for a job with maidsafe a while ago I can’t find anymore for a ‘release engineer’ or something similar-sounding. Is this still a thing? It sounded like the most incredible job - working on features that allow an autonomous network to upgrade itself and automatically choose the direction it wants to take and how to manage conflicts and self-heal etc … totally incredible (if somewhat romanticised just here)!
But on a related note, has maidsafe looked into deterministic build systems like gitian? I would think verifiability is going to be extremely important when upgrading an autonomous network. The whole topic of upgrading is fascinating to me but seems under-discussed.
Thanks for the support throughout this topic from the community. I really like working on the network especially without any sort of special inside knowledge. To me that’s what makes it such a strong project, because it’s open source and maidsafe holds themselves accountable by those same ideas which make other successful open source projects work so well.
I’m excited to see the outcome of this. Frustrating though it is to be excluded from the internal discussions, it’s nice to be able to work with what comes out of it and a fresh perspective ‘away from the trenches’.
I think there are a few places to read up more about the network. There are the system docs as well as some other intros that have been put together over the last couple of years, I was recently reminded of this one by Ephi Blanshey. I think we do have a know deficiency with regard to providing an easy to understand and up to date explanation of the networks main aspects, something that we will be working on over the next few months.
Agree that this is nicely put together Will. As @JPL mentioned it would be good to have these more SAFE Network focussed rather than MaidSafe and we should also be careful about referring to MaidSafeCoin as an investment, but nice work. We look forward to releasing the first CEP later this week.
Definitely agree. This was just the first version but I wanted to get it out before their weekend, as they are off. Will have a edited version this week and more on the way! I’ll remember those points.
Just my thoughts but some of the terminology seemed to cheapen the branding of Maidsafe, like “was previously top 8 cryptocurrency”. That only makes you question why previously? What went wrong? The video also seemed to drag at some points and overall I don’t think the music was a good choice. It didn’t feel like something I would listen to when discovering ground breaking tech.
Jumping in for @dirvine as he is super busy atm. We’ll post a dev update out tomorrow as usual so if you check that out you’ll understand where we are at. We put a lot of effort into the updates to provide quite a lot of depth so providing further additional updates beyond this is probably not the most efficient way for us to balance keeping everyone updated and actually developing the network. I hope this makes sense. Cheers!
