University of Glasgow students to use MaidSafe decentralized data network to build apps
The University of Glasgow will be working with MaidSafe team, a start-up developing a fully decentralized and secure approach to the Internet, to build development applications on top of the company’s secure and decentralized data and communications network platform.
According to the official release, the students within the department of computer science will be working on developing the apps under the guidance of Dr. Inah Omoronyia, lecturer in Software Engineering and Information Security.
“It’s a great opportunity for our students at Glasgow University to get hands-on experience with building apps for the SAFE network. Security and privacy functions are now core to modern day software systems; our students are really excited to learn new ways of building such systems using cutting-edge technology,” Dr. Inah Omoronyia said.
The students will work with MaidSafe team led by David Irvine and the team will provide them with complete guidance to build apps on top of its network that replaces the world’s data centers and servers with the spare computing capacity of the networks users. The company’s network will be providing a zero cost infrastructure for students. The present APIs will enable the creation of storage and email applications. The company has created developers in tutorials who will handle this functionality.
“We are delighted to be working with a university with such a rich heritage and very much look forward to using the applications created by their students,” David Irvine, CEO of MaidSafe said. “Glasgow University has an excellent opportunity to be at the forefront of research and development in the field of Internet technologies, alongside the likes of MIT, which will further enhance its reputation – and that of Scotland – as a source of cutting-edge innovation.”
The functionality will be expanded in next few months as MaidSafe release tutorials every 2 weeks, thus providing more complex functionality to application developers.
