Hello All -
I wanted to jot out a few notes from this morning’s All Hands meeting. This week, the meeting was a little more focused on the Engineering side of the shop. Enjoy!
Giv has been leading the developer programs these last few weeks to prepare for the upcoming $1M hackathon - hack.harmony.one. They are building out boilerplate code, documentation, tutorials and how-to videos to make on-boarding new devs as easy and seamless as possible.
RJ reported on a recent experiment regarding RPC/CPU usage. Large RPC query requests will cause CPU usage to spike. A fix is in the works and will be deployed soon. The solutions for the block latency from last week are currently in the review / testing stage.
Boris provided an update regarding our crosschain API. As imagined, this project presents challenges. Moving web3 objects and actions from the front-end to the back-end is a non-trivial task and work is proceeding.
Wolf gave an update regarding the sentiment of the community. In general, he mentioned that the community is very supportive and very excited about everything that has been happening lately. He does note a spike in sophisticated social-engineering hacks targeting users to disclose their seed phrases. (NOTE TO ALL: Do NOT reveal your seed phrase!) He also mentioned there is excitement around the upcoming hackathon with dozens of community members already signed up to participate and many very excited for what comes out of the event.
