We are presenting at Strange Loop this week, have a new teammate to introduce to you, and are announcing our new future of computing conference.
Strange Loop 2022
Meet us in St. Louis!
Brooklyn will also present the "skip ratchet", a process she invented for WNFS that combines hierarchical hashing and skip lists to produce local-first key agreement. Brooke's paper on the skip ratchet is available if you'd like to read up on how it works prior to the event.
Welcome Zeeshan Lakhani to the Fission Team
Join us as we give a warm welcome to our newest Applied Research Engineer, Zeeshan Lakhani!
Zeeshan is a co-founder and co-organizer of Papers We Love, which had a recent write-up on Stack Overflow. The Papers We Love Conference PWLConf is in St. Louis taking place alongside Strange Loop. If you're in St. Louis, you can meet both Zeeshan and Brooklyn!
"In going to Fission, I’m excited to return to an applied research domain focused on distributed systems, edge and multi-tier computing, identity, and storage. Fission floored me because it’s a people-first company, and those people are wicked smart, compassionate, and extremely forward-thinking."
Announcing Causal Islands
Novel approaches to the Future of Computing—programming languages, networks, interfaces, and more—end up stranded on similar causal islands. They propagate within different industries, disciplines, and communities at uneven speeds.
Causal Islands invites you to bridge these islands and gather together in the same room. Explore, join, and learn more about the future of computing. Meet others from different problem and solution spaces, forge connections, and find collaborators.
Chad Fowler from BlueYard and Zeeshan Lakhani and Brooklyn Zelenka from Fission will form part of the initial programing committee.
Location and date are to come, but we encourage you to register your interest to stay notified, suggest topics, or get involved as a speaker or sponsor.
