Kathmandu on the horizon

Welcome to this week’s issue of The Baking Sheet!
Protocol Jakarta will be activated in 4 days to the Tezos network (at the time of publication). For this week’s issue, we’re going to highlight the upgrade and what to expect come activation. 
Towards Jakarta
The first layer-2 scaling solution will be introduced to Tezos very soon! Transaction Optimistic Rollups (TORUs) are the first among many features geared towards mass scalability for the Tezos ecosystem. 
In case you’re unaware of all the features within the upgrade, protocol Jakarta will introduce the following feature sets to the Tezos network.
  • Transaction Optimistic Rollups (TORUs)
  • Liquidity Baking Changes
  • Tickets Improvements/Hardening
  • Elimination of “Rolls”
  • Bug fixes and other
In terms of scaling, there is no doubt TORUs are the talk of the town. These will allow for the exchange of assets, but will not be used in the execution of smart contracts. If you want to learn a bit more about optimistic rollups, check out Arthur Breitman’s chat with Cointelegraph or this blog article by Nomadic Labs.
That said, recently we learned more about the next protocol upgrade - Kathmandu. Protocol Kathmandu will introduce Smart Contract Optimistic Rollups (SCORUs). In Nomadic Labs’ blog post, they describe what this feature will provide to the Tezos network. 
SCORUs provide a generic infrastructure to implement any computational device, as long as its semantics can be described as a Proof-producing Virtual Machine (PVM), in the Tezos protocol.
This design allows us to continuously develop and deploy new supported PVMs, and thereby new execution environments, via protocol amendments. In our upcoming protocol proposal, we plan to introduce a first PVM supporting WebAssembly (WASM) — although only available via bleeding-edge test networks.
As Tezos continues to evolve and grow, so is the growing theme towards massive scalability. As Protocol Jakarta nears activation and we move towards a new era with Protocol Kathmandu, there’s lots to look forward to within the ecosystem.
TezAsia: The biggest Tezos Hackathon
Tezos India and TZ APAC have joined forces to create one of the most exciting Tezos hackathons to date.

TezAsia Hackathon is a month-long hackathon organised by Tezos India and Tezos APAC with the goal of promoting and making Tezos blockchain more accessible to the general public. This Hackathon will help developers from various colleges and universities to learn and build in the Tezos Blockchain, as well as introduce them to the Tezos ecosystem. 
This is a chance for all Dev-Heads who are with a competitive streak to showcase their tier one game and also get a chance to win hefty cash prizes. TezAsia Hackathon aims to build an innovation-driven culture by solving real-world challenges. Showcase your skills at our hackathon and win amazing prizes worth $100k+, grants up to $100k+ and an opportunity to get hired and work with the best-existing dapps & Tezos entities in the ecosystem.
Tezos Community Spotlight: Professor Groff
In this edition of the Tezos Community Spotlight, we had the chance to chat with the latest Tezos Commons Grantee: Professor Jeff Groff — a relative newcomer to the Tezos community and ecosystem — to learn about his new Tezos-powered project, The Tezio Wallet.
Tezio is a tezos wallet built using Arduino hardware. Dr. Groff sees this project as a first step toward enabling open source IoT devices microcontrollers to interact with the Tezos blockchain while connecting Tezos with the Arduino development community.
Tezos Stack Exchange Users: We need mods
Tezos is one of the few blockchain projects has it’s own stack exchange site. Stack Exchange is the world’s largest programming community that enables developers of all levels to ask technical questions across 173 different Q/A communities. Tezos, through a collaborative community effort, was voted to be added to this network of programmers.
Due to Stack Exchange’s policies each community require two moderators that are active within the site.
Are you a Tezos developer and active on the Tezos Stack Exchange? Stack Exchange is looking for community members to help moderate!
