Speaker: Nash Foster
Description: Over the last two years, Nash has led a small team of software engineers in the implementation of a high-performance blockchain intended to compete against global-scale payment systems. His project (see: https://silvermint.net) is completely implemented in go, from the eventually-consistent algorithm for transaction consistency to transaction conflict detection to high-performance data storage solutions for blocks. Nash will speak on some of their experience squeezing the last ounce of performance from pure go in comparison to algorithms written in C++ and CUDA. And, will wrap-up on some thoughts about go in an entrepreneurial/startup environment.
