The workshop was about the
parity-oo73, which is build around “Bonds” (hence the name…).
These bonds really are just a special kind of subscriptions, which stream data from a web3 source, and update the subscriber.
It’s nice to work with, but since it only works with chrome for now it’s more of a prototyping thing.
They also introduced some of their Rust packages, and polkadot is starting to get some shape.
Quite a lot of buzz, but check them out: DutchChain, the organizers of Blockchaingers.
