Thanks. I’m doing my best but @danda is doing all the hard bits and has made great strides. He’s been tearing through tricky code and come up with some very neat solutions to hard problems such as how to implement hard-links within the TreeCDRT.
Most of my time has been spent learning and discussing all the different parts with him, and hopefully assisting by sharing and discussing. I’m still a Rust virgin, so not ready to write the code for this which is quite advanced. That’s frustrating but I hope to find some parts I can get my teeth into once there’s a framework in place, or if I can pull code from other areas and fit it into safe-fs.
It has been some time when I’ve been reading the last updates. Looking good though. Still good progress being made.
Back in the beginning 2017 I’ve been reading the whole maidsafe wiki fundamentals but there have been a lot of changes in even the core of how maidsafe is working if I’m correct. And now I’m looking to update my understanding of the basic principles of maidsafe and I was looking at this primer but I see that the latest update is of november 2019 and parsec still seems to be a large part of it and if I am correct it shouldn’t be? https://primer.safenetwork.org/
Can someone explain to me how to get back up to speed and if it is still worthwhile to read the primer this weekend or if there is another source that might be better suited for this?
Since the team got slimmed down to 99% engineers there has unfortunately been less resource available to update documentation. Yes read the primer but the unfortunately I think the best way to get up to speed is to trawl through the last few moonths archives here and on https://forum.safedev.org/ - If you can read backwards that might help too
PARSEC got dumped because while it proved an invaluable concept, it was slow, pedantic, unnecessarily complex and was very “chatty”. Fine as a Proof of Concept - not so fine for a production solution.
But it was 100% necessary to climb the PARSEC mountain to see the better alternative routes in the valleys below .
The pace is crazy! Everyone @maidsafe we truly appreciate you and the progress you bring us each week to get us closer to privacy, security, and freedom. Following along has been so interesting and it’s so neat to have been around as long as I have and to be able to grow with the project and it’s community die hard devs. Best of the best.
Thanks! Someone very dear to me who died recently took that picture from my front porch. I do spend most of my time in a cabin with no running water and only wood for heating on a small island in the Gulf of Finland. The island is privately owned, but unfortunately not by me.
