December has come and gone, as well as the many holidays within it. Now that we’re free of stressed out shoppers and the constant shimmer of tinsel, we can focus on the important things, like bug-finding and Factomd. These posts are written as a brief summary – if you’re more interested in more technical insights, please read our Grant Status Update here.
We kicked off December with an announcement about Yooya adopting Factom Harmony through the Wancloud platform bringing online video performance verification in China, adding some extra attention to the protocol right on the November news with Equator.
The month of December was, in large part, a debugging adventure for our developers. Several hard-to-find and hard-to-fix bugs were identified, with many of those relating to SaveState management. Additionally, there were some rare panic causing bugs dealing with negative Factoid balances that were pretty tricky. Check out our December JIRA tickets update log, if you want to dive into the debugging deep end.
The Development Grant ended on December 10, 2018, but we didn’t let that stop our efforts. The goals laid out in the grants are planned for another couple releases, especially for maintenance and bug fixing. We’re hoping to have a January release bring in several months of these bug fixes into production environments. We’re continuing to have meetings with our sponsors, and are planning on having one recorded for public viewing as a value trial for even greater transparency.
We’re participating with a few events coming up:
- MISMO Winter Summit, January 7 – 11th, Clearwater, FL
- Blockchainge DC, January 13 – 15, Washington, DC
- Satoshi Roundtable, February 1 – 4, 2019
- DC Blockchain Summit, March 6-7, Washington, DC
- MBA Tech Conference, March 24 – 27, Dallas TX
- Synchronize, April 17th, New York, NY
As the protocol continues to improve, its governance continues to mature, and the validity of our field continues to be recognized, we’re looking forward to what 2019 has in store for all of us.
