Weekly Update: W/C 31st August, 2020

As part of our ongoing commitment to transparency and development in the open, our founder writes weekly updates to the Edge community. This is the 76th of these updates, originally posted to Telegram.

Hello everyone 👋

Monday was a bank holiday in the UK so it’s been a short week here, although no less packed than usual.

test.network has been refactored and is now up and running with a set of DC partners. This is the latest milestone in moving on from Consul.

We’ve now successfully migrated both mainnet and testnet over to the new infrastructure and have also migrated ACL. The next step is to complete the new BGP setup, which will deliver a far more comprehensive global spread for DNS and service lookup. (Reach and speed here as very important as they are the entrance point to the network.)

CDN is losing weight. We’re currently implementing docker-slim, a package that removes all of the noise from a container, which should see a significant reduction in the disk space required to run CDN. Freeing up this space will give more space for Filestore and other applications in the pipeline, which in return should increase the earning capability of devices.

Job opportunity alert 🚨 Edge + Edit customer Monocle is recruiting for a junior-mid level developer and a senior developer to lead their internal team. Monocle is fantastic operation with a real clarity of vision in the publishing space. If you’re interested please feel free to drop me a line and I can share the specifications and make introductions.

We’re in the last straight with the latest Edit eCommerce platform delivery, which will be live in early October.

There are two new engagements due to be kicking off this month. And we’re pushing ahead with sales efforts. Updates to the Edge site are still work in progress, but we’re getting there!

Cookalong TV has now held 19 celebrity events and is now working on a move in to corporate events. We’re assisting with this in the form of platform support.

Thank you for the questions submitted so far for the next AMA. A reminder that is scheduled for the 17th, and will be with Jason, Chris, Arthur and I.

Oh, and we’ve bought the Edge site up to date with my weekly updates. They’re all - 74 and counting! - available here: https://edge.network/en/updates

Enjoy your weekends.
