This (ongoing) project is to provide a front-end to a blockchain-based ledger for post-trade services including clearing, settlement and asset registration. It consists of a Java-based backend (microservices) and a React frontend, and is deployed to a Kubernetes cluster (PKS). The ledger provides GRPC endpoints (and technically protobuffs) that allow us to submit messages, or “exercise non-consuming contracts” as it happens. As per “recommended approach”, we are using a Java API which was generated from the underlying ledger source language, which means a bunch of static and impenetrable classes representing the “entities” of the system, as well as a compile-time dependency on the API library.

I worked for a “data discovery and analytics platform” company1 for a couple of years, and got to see first-hand the power of graph-based datastores for analysis, hypothesis-testing and pattern discovery. It truly was an example of intelligence amplification and allowed the analysts I worked with to work more effectively than ever. Since that day I've had a desire to map things out, to build a kind of mega-mindmap2 to really understand some of the more complex and complicated situations — ancient and modern history, the middle east, US politics, the powerful people behind every conspiracy theory imaginable…

The Hack Street office will include an arcade console near one wall, with a large wall-mounted display that doubles as a video-conferencing system (Hangouts, Skype, etc). I want to assemble an awesome system that includes classic arcade titles as well as the best console titles.
