This Thursday at 7pm CEST we’ll have the next session of the Developer Tooling WG with the following agenda:
@dfx-json will give an update on the roadmap of DFINITY’s SDK Team
@oss and @qti3e of Psychedelic will present on the upcoming alpha release of IC-Kit 0.5. IC-Kit is a canister development kit written in Rust with the goal to provide a consistent development experience using high-level abstractions designed with canister interoperability in mind.
Tomorrow Thursday at 6 pm CET (Europe switched to winter time last weekend) is the next Developer Tooling WG. There’s not much on the agenda, so if you want to present or discuss something there’s still time to reach out! In any case, it’s a chance to meet and ask your questions to the SDK team.
@dfx-json will give an update on the SDK roadmap and the next generation of Motoko development @Gabriel Wants to talk about issues with actor factories and his workarounds using ic-repl and didc
Agree…this might be the biggest production enhancement feature possible for devs building real world dapp that have user data in them. The current back up methods ar all fragile and require hours of dev time for each project to roll their own.
Regarding or/post upgrades dfx could add a --safe argument to deploy that would download the canister state, run the upgrade locally, and then run it again to make sure the pre upgrade doesn’t fail, then attempt a deploy.
