Monthly Global R&D Meeting

Hello everyone,

We at the DFINITY Foundation have been working to provide greater visibility into R&D and more opportunities for the community to provide feedback and learn how to contribute.

We are delighted to invite you to our first public Global R&D meeting happening on July 27th, 8:30 AM PT / 5:30 PM CET.

This is the first of our public R&D updates, which will occur every 4 weeks on Wednesdays.

Register here to join (webinar) live session and chat, or watch live on Youtube and/or Twitter.

Monthly sessions will be announced here.

Come and join to hear R&D updates, watch demos and learn how to get involved.
Looking forward to seeing you all next week!

Will there be a link to show the R&D detailed roadmap (maybe update weekly?) so that the community could see?

This was a very cool slide:

^ Although I’ve never heard of “subnet rental” or “streaming sup”… what are they?


Also, I was a little surprised at how slow the BTC API calls were. Balance queries took 10 seconds and transfers took 30 seconds. Is this because they were demoing with the BTC testnet, or is that really how long it takes?

We are still planning to give monthly roundups like this one, but with more visibility as we gave today: Update on the IC Roadmap: June 2022 Summary

Yes, I saw the slide too, that’s what I am pointing to. @diegop just like the above slide which is the real roadmap and easy to understand. That would be cool to be able to see this and maybe update maybe weekly.

Yes, we plan to have more or less this slide beautified on the website.

Subnet rental is the idea that one could make a proposal to form a subnet that they could use exclusively to guarantee sufficient resources for one’s dapp. Of course, such a proposal would require submission of sufficient ICP to cover the cost of the such a subnet for a sufficiently long time. Details will follow.

I saw an example from point network: https://roadmap.pointnetwork.io/ maybe you could share the roadmap with the community like this?

Is there any chance that we could do more of these? Perhaps at different times? I do not mean to be rude, I just have been trying to attend one of these, and it always lands in the middle of my work/ class day :confused:

Completely understand if it is a set session though. Please don’t change it for one person (me).

Are there plans to create more interactive sessions like these? Or perhaps plans in the future to have community meet-ups in person for live events? I really like this idea. I know with COVID it can be tough. Just please keep the idea open to consideration at the very least!

Thanks again,

Global R&D is a set timeslot, so it won’t change anytime soon. But the recordings are available on the DFINITY Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLuhDt1vhGcrdKiAYaVbTJGbqwmqSEBx4p

That’s okay. It was worth a shot! You never know unless you ask. I do appreciate the official DFINITY youtube channel link at the very least.

Fwiw I can share we also want this: We are still re-creating our live event /community muscles since we have not really used it much in last 2 years, but we want to see more of these too. We intend to get better at this.

That’s exciting at the very least. I’m here for a long time… I can wait a bit longer. I’m just glad this is on the “menu”. When we get to it, I think it will be fun.
