It has been a busy few weeks not only of software development but also of outreach into the community for the Holochain education Immersive.
After 5+ weeks of public testing of Elemental Chat by our community, we are planning to pause the test prior to adding Elemental Chess to that public network. We did deploy another test network in parallel to the public test that included several versions of chess, two versions of Kizuna, as well as Elemental Chat. Learnings from both of these tests have been valuable for the Elemental Chess community team as well as the hosting infrastructure team, enabling improvements for our next milestone, Publisher Portal. Soon we'll create a new hashspace with Elemental Chat and Elemental Chess to a public network for testing.
After a multi-week push to share about the first Holochain & Rust Immersive with our developer community, we've now shifted to interviewing and accepting candidates for the ~12 person, two week developer training. We're excited by the quality of the applicants and the developing curriculum which the education team is working on. It is going to be an amazing experience for the developers who attend.
