First up, the PPA site launched on Tuesday đź’Ą

It’s a great showcase for our platform, demonstrating how quickly it is possible to move with the technology, as well as how easy it makes re-platforming (this time from Sitecore).

The launch has been widely publicised in the UK to the publishing industry here.

There are a bunch of changes to the Ecohustler site, which will be going live next week. These bring the site up to date with the latest releases of our tech and inline with the recent changes to mainnet content distribution.

I mentioned in a previous update that we would be moving one of our existing customers with global offices to the network. This work is now underway.

The engineer team have built out a web app and accompanying API capable of creating deployments of what were our web services and talking to their corresponding API instances.

They’ve also fixed some bugs in Publish, mostly relating to the rich editor and the date picker. These will be released along with the React version of our interfaces next week 🎉

Work on improving the performance of the request queue in Gateways is ongoing, specifically in relation to object storage and how it supports the process of file sharding.

And they are continue to work on the registration app for nodes, as well as building out the end points required for network CLI in support of self onboarding.

We have been interviewing engineers to join the networking team. There are a lot of great candidates! If you’ve applied and haven’t heard from us, just hang tight. We’re working through the applications.

There have been a handful of new business meetings, with particularly interesting opportunities in education and marketing.

And finally we have made a whole world of updates to our new site on edge.network, largely on the back of community feedback. For which thank you 🙏

The feedback loop with you all is invaluable to us, and really helps to drive forward what were building.
We have a few remaining updates to make to our social channels and are waiting on exchanges to update our ticker (which we expect to see played through over the next one-two weeks).

Oh, and we have a new intro film in production. Expect to see this launched and added to the site soon.

Enjoy your weekends!
