Cardano and Dquadrant at Consensus 2022

Austin, Texas 9-12 June

The Netherlands, 05/17/22

Dquadrant supports Cardano during the developer workshop & Hackathon at Consensus 2022.

During Consensus 2022 developer workshop sessions will be planned by IOHK for existing and new developers to the Cardano blockchain. Dquadrant will support one of these sessions by guiding Plutus/Haskell developers in the usage of the new Kuber library and api that is available as open source to the Cardano community.

"Kuber is a robust core open source building block for the Cardano ecosystem"

1. What is Kuber?

Kuber is a library and api that abstracts the complexity of creating eUTXO transactions using components provided for the Cardano blockchain. The PAB was intended to provide this kind of functionality but as we all know the speed of development of teams like Dquadrant is faster than that of IOHK due the amount of work to be done by IOHK. As a result of this IOHK supports teams like Dquadrant who create alternatives with the intention to replace part of the functionality that was to be provided by the PAB.

2. Why Kuber?

With Kuber eUTXO transactions can be easily created by consuming a developer friendly api. With Kuber developers don’t have to know all the technical complexities of how to use the different components provided by IOHK to construct a transaction. Kuber supports multiple wallet addresses from a wallet and automatically balances the outputs as input for a new transaction. Next to this it provides the interface to wallets like Nami, Eternl, Typhon etc. to easily sign those transactions.

3. For what use case scenarios Kuber can be used?

Kuber will be useful for many scenarios. Dquadrant is working together with IOHK on a new Pioneers training program on basis of the Kuber library. In this training program certain scenarios will be covered. So look out for the new Pioneers training program to become available to get familiar with the use of Kuber or sign up for the breakout session at Consensus 2022.

4. Will Kuber be maintained?

Dquadrant is committed to the Cardano ecosystem and building solutions and tooling on it. As part of this commitment we will maintain and extend the Kuber library. We will open a discord channel shortly dedicated to the Kuber library where developers can ask questions or will be able to make functionality requests to enhance its use case. Once the discord channel is available we will communicate this.

5. Where can I find the source code of Kuber?

The source code of Kuber can be found in the Dquadrant github repository.


Consensus 2022 Kuber developer workshop & hackathon

A time slot for the Kuber developer workshop is not yet known, once this information is available this will be communicated.

During the Kuber workshop existing and new developers on Cardano will be challenged with a use case to create using the Kuber library. Our developers will be available to answer questions or to assist. 

Dquadrant will be collecting feedback from the developers working on the use case with the goal to make our product even better and more user friendly.

As Dquadrant we are looking forward to the Consensus 2022, it is our second year that we are contributing to Cardano and we would like to invite you to join the Kuber developer workshop.
