Parity is just another client that does Ethereum,so from the ecosystem perspective it's beneficial

@cseberino
Peter: Go was kind of a surprising choice....it isn't the most popular language so some devs first come to Ethereum and go "HUH?" "Why Go?"
Péter Szilágyi
@karalabe
It targets cirporate customers and does many things those users need and public ones not, that's true
Go actually is one of the most popular lamguagaes
It's just relatively new
cseberino
@cseberino
Peter: i would have guessed python or java
Pascal van Kooten
@kootenpv
Go is most popular for blockchain projects, that's for sure :P
cseberino
@cseberino
or C
Pascal van Kooten
@kootenpv
and in China it really became popular
Péter Szilágyi
@karalabe
But look up any recent networkimg/distributed system projevt and you'll find go
cseberino
@cseberino
Peter: seems like i turned my back and now everyone is all excited about Rust and Go
Péter Szilágyi
@karalabe
Docker, IPFS
cseberino
@cseberino
i was just getting cumfy with python
Péter Szilágyi
@karalabe
heck, spacex uses go
cseberino
@cseberino
after a decade
Peter: aw man..i love spacex
if they use Go it must be good
crap now i have to learn go
:)

@karalabe
Only for teletry, not everything
But still :)
*teletry
**telemetry
Cloudflare runs on go
Go was designed for distributed and multi core systems. It's hard to compete with it if the competitor was born in a previous era (java)
And it was designed for Google scale from day one
That's also not something most languages do
Googles CDN runs Go
Rust is probably also a nuce choice for vlockchain as it's fast, but a lot more complex
If you need to evolve faster, simpler is better

@karalabe
Gotta run:)

@jarradh
ciao :)

@karalabe
Join golang-nuts and learn yourself some Go, you won't regret it ;)
cseberino
@cseberino
thanks

@timjp87
rkt from CoreOS also runs go

ok I have started nods as they finish and I add mist wallet how can I run the same wallet on each nod and run the same password?

@ellis2323
@karalabe hello, i have made some benchmarks with RAM disk... For the --fast and full synch , i have similar times .... so it's seem the disk is not the bottleneck :)

@karalabe

They did, parity :) It's a paid client

That's not true btw.
Parity is licensed GPLv3 but you can buy a commercial license. That's a very common setup.

More info here on Parity for everybody who is interested - https://ethcore.io/parity.html.

So Parity itself is an open source client, but ETHCORE are a for-profit corporation, who recently raised $750,000 USD in VC funding. See https://bitcoinmagazine.com/articles/ethcore-raises-financing-round-as-first-venture-capital-funded-ethereum-startup-1461343599.

Quote in that article, though not from ETHCORE themselves:

“Ethcore is much more focused on building licensed, proprietary tools for large financial institutions, exchanges, and so forth, as opposed to the more open-sourced, Red Hat approach Blockstream is taking ... One of Ethcore’s main value propositions is that they know Ethereum better than anyone, and thus the tools they build and deploy should buttress and catalyze Ethereum as a whole.”

^ This quote was from one of the two VC companies which made the investment. So they should know what they are talking about, especially if they are speaking on the record.

I can tell that packet prioritization is leading to lots of stalled out packets for system syncing witch is what I think is taking some people so long to dl I am on fiber optic and its taking me days to dl do to stalling out only one node is crying about lack of pears witch is funny it on a net work with other nodes I am makeing

@fjl
@ivanhopke_twitter please try the code in ethereum/go-ethereum#2657
ellis2323
@ellis2323
@karalabe I'm benchmarking the ethereum/go-ethereum#2649 It seems great. In 1h08min, i have sync the 1M blocks...
ivan hopke
@ivanhopke_twitter
Felix Lange... ty but i don't know how to code or get the fix in to where they need to be it would seem simper if they would just not post broken apps with sloppy code that needs some one to go and fix it and just make it work the first time around we are talking about them having from 2014 to now to do this
ivan hopke
@ivanhopke_twitter
continually stalling out on dl sync with fiber optic internet plezz fix geth and repost fully fixed app
