What topics are coming up?
On 4 August, Chainlink Developer Advocate Patrick Collins will discuss the Chainlink pallet, which allows FRAME-based blockchains to interact with the popular Chainlink network of decentralized oracles. This Seminar marks the return of Joshy as host!
On 11 August, Parity's Shawn Tabrizi will join us to discuss Rust traits, and how they came to be in the Substrate runtime. Have you ever wondered why every pallet has a trait Trait or why you see T::AccountId or T::BlockNumber throughout Substrate runtimes? In this intermediate developer-oriented seminar, Shawn will build up an example of how following Rust first principles and common design practices, these pallet traits came to be.
On 18 August, Derek Yoo and Alan Sapède from Moonbeam, an Ethereum-compatible smart contract platform built on Substrate will join us. They will discuss the purpose of Moonbeam, demonstrate using a Moonbeam node with existing Ethereum tooling such as MetaMask, and walkthrough some aspects of Moonbeam's code and architecture.
How do I join the call?
We are trying the crowdcast platform for seminar. Specifically we meet in https://www.crowdcast.io/e/substrate-seminar.
Can I ask my own questions?
Yes! The second half of every Seminar is for open Q & A like office hours. You can ask questions or even bring your code that doesn't compile. Participants will be invited on-screen to share their work and their questions. You may also join us between Seminars on Riot.
I am not a [Substrate] developer, can I still participate?
Yes! The seminar is open to everyone. The content is generally more developer-oriented, but less technical participants and questions are also welcome. If your questions turn out to be off-topic, we'll point you to a better resource.
Where are the recordings?
Seminar has changed formats a few times so the recordings are in a few places.
