Dapp's mobile navigation service provider is working with the crew behind the Nim programming language.
According to information shared with ETHNews the team behind Status, a mobile Dapp browser on the Ethereum blockchain, collaborated with the developers of Nim, a "statically typed and compiled" programming language that can be run on Windows, MacOS, Linux and other operating systems. The two groups will work on the search for sharding and will promote the development of open-source language, which Status summarizes as a combination of C, Python and Lisp.
The collaboration will see Status provide funding and resources to help the NIM team stay focused on developing its language. Apparently, the open source and voluntary nature of the project has led to "a lack of dedicated computer scientists focused exclusively on their development."
One of Nim's main developers, Dominik Picheta, said ETHNews :
"We hope this collaboration will encourage other developers to adopt Nim for their projects and that it will give software companies confidence to develop products using Nim. "
Although Nim does not have a constant expiration date for the first version of his language, the crew has identified various problems on GitHub that need to be resolved before its publication, including multiple errors and crashes.
In addition to the partnership with Status, Nim is also working on a concession program in which developers would be hired to contribute to specific projects.
In related news, the Status team announced its next client sharding, Nimbus, on Wednesday, August 1st. The client uses the Nim g programming language to handle complex calculations on devices with limited resources, such as certain smartphones. The co-founder of Ethereum Vitalik Buterin expressed his enthusiasm through Twitter for the team's project.
