Shelley Testnet: Your weekly rollout rollup. Week 12: W/E 13th September 2019

Week 12: W/E 13th September 2019

Hi everybody,

Each week, this newsletter is where we’ll share a high-level summary of key achievements and what’s been going on in the program. Remember, for the very latest technical updates you can follow all the commits and pull requests in the community GitHub.

If you missed it last week, be sure to check out this update on the IOHK blog, laying out what you can expect in the network phase and beyond.

If you are not already part of the conversation, you’ll find a hive of activity over at the stake pool Best Practice Telegram. With over 2,200 members and loads of engaged users, this is a great resource for anyone interested in contributing to the program. Continued thanks to everyone from the community, especially our amazing Ambassadors.

What’s up

This week, as we head closer towards the network phase of the testnet, the Rust development team have been working closely with the content team. Alongside continuing work on the code, they have been busy mapping out how the networking functionality will work and identifying what assistance users will need to get things up and running and carry out tasks. Once created, overview information will be published on the testnet website. Video tutorials are also being planned and will be delivered as resources in tandem.

For some users, the Networking testnet is going to be easier to set up since the blockchain is already going to be in place and users can connect using a passive node. Equally, the more experienced or adventurous among you will be also able to set up your own blockchain, with your own nodes interacting with each other.

  • Great to see some younger members of the community getting down with some nodes - thanks to community member Tony From Shoshoni for sharing this on the Telegram channel
  • Huge kudos to Michiel Bellen, a community member from Belgium, for scripting this bit of front-end beauty – watch the video and check out his stake pool prototype (nice URL too, Michiel!)

See you next week!
