Working Group Topic: Scalability & Performance

First meeting: July 21, 2022 at 5:30pm CET

Zoom Meeting Details

Meeting ID: 984 9210 7298

Passcode: 806912


The Internet Computer provides a unique blockchain platform for decentralized applications. The actor model allows parallel execution of code in a given subnet and the IC can scale horizontally by adding more subnets. Already today, this allows the building of decentralized applications using smart contracts that aren't possible on other blockchains. However, these are still early days for the Internet Computer, and design patterns for building decentralized applications on a global scale are only starting to emerge. The Internet Computer itself is also continuously maturing with performance improvements, new features, and better tooling. The goal of this working group is to foster a regular exchange between R&D at DFINITY and application developers with the following focus:

  • Updates on the relevant R&D roadmap and presentation of ideas
  • Collecting and discussing pain points of application developers
  • Identification and sharing of best practices and design patterns for building applications on the IC
