Short update this week, but certainly no let-up in progress, plus a new team member to welcome…
First off, we’re really happy to welcome Roland Sherwin as the newest member of the MaidSafe team. Roland started this week and he’s already getting stuck into the code with loads of positive energy. We’ll let him introduce himself below.
@Anselme is putting the finishing touches to handovers, which is about making sure that newly promoted elders have all the right information, keys and so forth. This has been “almost there” for some time but has been waiting on membership, which covers new nodes joining the section, managing capacity, ejecting misbehaving nodes or reducing their node age and promoting adults to elders - which has taken longer than we’d hoped. However we’re definitely seeing a light at the end of that particular tunnel now too.
Meanwhile @bochaco has been looking at our wallet code with a view to getting it integrated into the safe network API so that it works with the new multimap data types and DBCs. He’s put together some simple CLI commands to allow users to manage their wallets. He and @dirvine have also been investigating WASM and HTTP/3 to check their potential for simplifications down the line.
@yogesh has put together a testing strategy for the next stages of development. Internal stuff for now but it should really help with some of the testing anomalies we’ve been experiencing.
@qi_ma has found and fixed a bug which may have been holding up membership changes. Adults were not necessarily updating to the latest SAP properly which could have caused a variety of issues as sections grow.
And finally we’d like to recognise and appreciate @danda’s work and dedication to DBC’s, and in particular, the fungibility component that he felt very strongly about. Dan and MaidSafe have now parted company. He has a different set of priorities right now and will follow those. But we wish him all the best with whatever he turns his talents to next.
Good day everyone! I’m @roland and I’ve joined MaidSafe as a junior developer. I graduated as an Electrical Engineer but later I realised that programming was my area of interest. So I took this route and had been in love with it ever since. I worked as a React dev before joining here.
The first time I heard about bitcoin was in 2017 and it has drastically changed how I view the world. Since then, I have been completely hooked into the concept of decentralisation and how it can change the world for the better. And it is surreal working on Safe Network with like-minded folks who share the same values as mine.
Feel free to reply below with links to translations of this dev update and moderators will add them here:
As an open source project, we’re always looking for feedback, comments and community contributions - so don’t be shy, join in and let’s create the Safe Network together!
