In case you had been with us final yr, you may know what we’re about to let you know. If you weren’t, right here’s a brief recap:
Golem launched its roadmap alongside the Whitepaper, round mid-2016. Now, that’s a very long time in the past in Blockchain years. So final yr round August, we determined that a great way to maintain or neighborhood up to date about our objectives was to launch mid-term objectives Kanban boards, so that you can observe our progress, upcoming milestones, and the route of our improvement.
Furthermore, it’s a great way for our customers to know the way we work, how the groups are divided, what are they targeted on, and the completely different approaches. As final yr we shifted to a scrum/Agile new approach of working – we began updating in that very same approach.
In case you missed it, what we’re speaking about is the Kanban board that you’ve been following for the previous yr, and we defined the groups on this submit.
So now Golem’s able to current its 2019 Mid Time period Targets Replace, additionally in its Kanban kind – however as an alternative of explaining all groups in a single submit, we determined to ask them two concrete questions so that you can know what they’re as much as NOW and within the brief time period. By these subsequent two or three months, it is possible for you to to learn Group Updates in installments, now and again, each staff will take the highlight and inform us all the pieces about their work, route, and milestones.
Earlier than we current the Kanban, learn the “two-sentence updates” to know precisely what comes subsequent:
“The UX staff has a number of objectives, we are able to divide them briefly time period and long run. Within the upcoming month or so, we’re going to revamp the web site, so it options all present Golem merchandise accurately, and particularly, we are going to concentrate on enhancing navigation – to indicate all Golem can do for the customers in a extra complete approach.
As midterm objectives, we’re going to be targeted on enhancing present documentation, offering a brand new format for API docs. In fact, engaged on Golem GUI and supporting different groups with their duties when wanted (CGI, RnD, Limitless) is at all times a precedence of the UX staff.” – Jacek Muszyński , UX Lead
“The CGI staff’s subsequent deliverable is a brand new use-case demo for video transcoding, referred to as Golem Transcoding Webservice. As well as, we’re focusing efforts on verification on SGX, complementing our 2018/2019 verification efforts which had been defined on this blogpost. And nearly forgot, quickly we might be including Blender 2.80 help to Golem.” – Magda Stasiewicz, CGI Lead
“Clay’s subsequent deliverable is our neighborhood’s (and Golem’s personal) sizzling subject: the Process API. The primary launch might be a really fundamental one, and alongside the road, we are going to iterate and enhance. For the mid-term, the principle purpose is switching Golem to the libp2p networking stack. Different objectives are additional Golem modularization/refactoring and/or serving to with rust-libp2p improvement (e.g. nat punching).” – Marek Franciszkiewicz, Clay Lead
“Aside from the standard planning and addressing points round main Golem releases, within the subsequent 6 months, we’ll be specializing in lastly launching Concent to mainnet, serving to R&D with implementing gWASM and gLambda as new easy process API apps and beginning the app registry service.
The Brass staff upcoming deliverables are the minor replace to 0.20.x enabling it to work with Golem Limitless and launching Concent on mainnet.” – Przemysław Idzkiewicz, Brass Group Lead
“Our subsequent deliverable: easy-to-install Limitless as Golem community supplier setup (with out public IP & port forwarding). The principle midterm purpose is VM mode. We wish to create a extra easy and dependable execution surroundings for limitless and customary golem than present options. For limitless it will likely be notably helpful to have the ability to arrange digital networks per set of calculations.” – Przemysław Rekucki, Limitless
“Mid-term deliverables for the R&D staff:
1. gWASM: utilization market for gWASM, launch on mainnet, efficiency enhancements, WASI, Concent for gWASM
2. Dissemination of RASPA and additional analysis on molecular computations on Golem
3. Molecular computations in LAN networks, i.e. GUMPI (MPI computations on Golem Limitless) and Gromacs on Golem Limitless
4. App Registry and licensing in Golem Community. Specifically app registry for gWASM.
Our upcoming deliverables might be “Verification by Redundancy”, and utilization market for gWASM and gWASM on mainnet.” – Lukasz Glen, R&D Lead
Now, there may be rather more to it, so because of this we may even publish common Group Updates within the subsequent couple of months, however for now, verify the brand new Kanban
As Golem evolves, our mid-term objectives schedule may change too, if that’s the case, we are going to inform you, no want to fret! Additionally, you will see this mirrored in our Kanban. Constructing experimental software program requires flexibility, dynamism (and persistence, generally) so our Kanban is at all times a “work in progress”.
Lastly, you may discover that our Kanban is broad and now we have not lined all subjects. As talked about, staff updates will comply with with deeper dives into what you’ll be able to see proper now. Keep tuned,
When you’ve got any questions – we’re pleased to reply them! You possibly can ask on Reddit underneath this weblog submit’s thread, or on our Chat, as at all times. Thanks as at all times, for the help!
