We start with a short review of the latest development sprint and the user feedback of Breeze Wallet and the plans ahead. Our core development team has been busy coding and implementing internal processes for the tasks ahead.
- Currently ongoing our first development sprint (Andreas) (5/07 through 14/07)
- Implementation of Continuous Delivery, so that users will be able to download the latest version of the wallet, every time the code changes
- Fixed bugs reported by the community
- Improved the Breeze wallet’s user experience based of user feedback
There will be a more extensive developer report about our development milestones at the end of the current sprint.
Our Team Keeps Expanding
We have turbo-charged development for Breeze and Tumblebit integrations. We are happy to announce that we have secured a short term commitment with Nicolas Dorier to aid with Breeze’s most pressing issues, such as the full node and Tumblebit integration. His progress will also be included in our regular dev reports going forward.
We are also pleased to announce that we have hired Paul Aderonmu to join our team in the capacity of senior Project and Product Manager. Paul Aderonmu is a 10+ year industry veteran previously employed as a Data Support Analyst / Project Manager. He has extensive record and working experience with financial institutions and processes, having held high-level operative positions with Barclays Global Investors, HSBC Investments and Commerzbank. He will be assisting on laying down the foundations to develop strong corporate Project, Product and Support management processes within the Stratis organization. Paul will be instrumental in the planning process and helping communicate to the community progress in our development and business efforts.
Breeze TumbleBit Readies for Testing
The team is expecting to release the Breeze Full Node this Friday, July 14th, for further testing purposes. This will be purely for testing the blockchain registration on the STRAT main net, and it does not implement the actual tumbler feature yet. The TumbleBit server itself will be first implemented on the Bitcoin testnet and will be made available soon to those that want to test the functionality.
New Tumblebit Team Leader
As we dive deeper into the Tumblebit potential we are strengthening our team to respond to the challenge. As we add more tasks and team members to the project it is important to coordinate the effort to maximize efficiencies. On this regard, we are happy to announce that we have secured the services of expert development team lead Carlton Pringle (Linkedin Profile). He is a senior software development team leader, versed in Agile/Scrum methodologies, as well as Microsoft’s .Net / C# app development processes.
New Tumblebit Developer
We also have the pleasure of announcing the addition of another member to the Breeze / Tumblebit crew – Dan Gould. Dan graduated from Boston University and he is an active researcher and contributor to the Tumblebit / NTumblebit projects. His profile can be seen here. We are furthermore finalizing terms with yet another soon to be announced developer that will be joining the Tumblebit / Breeze project.
Stratis is Azure Certified
Also this week we were pleased to confirm we have successfully concluded Certification of the Stratis Full Node on the Azure Marketplace. This will allow developers to start testing and deploying their blockchain apps with minimum effort and cost.
We are incredibly happy to report that we have received public recognition from Microsoft’s Visual Studio team and we expect to work closely with them in demonstrating how the Stratis Platform seamlessly integrates into the Microsoft suite of products. Expect more news and announcements as we progress actively on that front.
