Motoko, the Internet Computer’s Native Language, Turns Two


I thought folks in the forum would appreciate this piece written by @rossberg .

parts I found most interesting:

  • Memory system updates (and a bit more deep diving)
  • safe canister upgrades

Great article, thanks for sharing.

Especially excited about the safe canister upgrades feature, i.e. checking that a canister’s stable variable interfaces are compatible across upgrades.

Nice write up! Although, of course, to some of us it’s actually more like 3½ years :slight_smile:
