Anastasia Labs - Streamlining Development: A User-Friendly Smart Contract Library for Plutarch and Aiken Design Patterns & Efficiency

Problem

There are a ton of design patterns that address many of the most difficult problems for smart contract development, but they are so unintuitive that barely anyone knows about them.

Solution

Two wrapper libraries for Plutarch and Aiken smart contracts, that streamline development by abstracting unintuitive design patterns.

Compiler & Programming Language Research

Philip DiSarro

Philip is a Computer Science Graduate School Student specializing in Compiler Development & Programming Language Theory. He was one of the first developers to formally verify smart contracts in Cardano using Agda. Philip was the lead architect of many features (both live and upcoming) on WingRiders DEX. Philip has also made significant contributions to the Cardano developer ecosystem. As a co-chair of the IOHK developer experience working group he worked to identify and resolve pain points that DApp developers experience in Cardano, and had an integral role in getting Lucid & Plutus Simple Model included in the Plutus Pioneer Program. He is a blockchain consultant & educational lecturer for Emurgo. Many know him as the primary instructor for the Cardano Solutions Architect course. 

Philip is currently the lead smart contract developer at Ikigai Technologies, a consultant and lecturer for Emurgo and a founder of Anastasia Labs.

His previous experience includes:

WingRiders - Lead Smart Contract Developer

Agora - open-source contributor

Plutarch - Liqwid-Extra - open-source contributor

Plaid - FinTech Software Engineer

Philip is responsible for creating the design pattern documentation, implementing the Plutarch wrapper library, and maintaining them to reflect advancements in the developer ecosystem such as new efficiency tricks or design patterns.

Functional Programming & TypeScript SDKs

Jonathan Rodriguez

Jonathan is a highly skilled smart contract developer specializing in Cardano, a blockchain technology that he is deeply passionate about.

His passion in smart contract development drives him to constantly polish his technical knowledge. In the pursuit of that knowledge he obtained the following certifications: Cardano Solution Architect, Cardano Developer Professional, and Associate Certificate.

With an extensive background in Haskell development, which is a critical language for Cardano, he possesses a thorough understanding of functional programming concepts.

His expertise extends to various aspects of the Cardano ecosystem, including the Cardano Toolchain, Transaction Structure, Plutus Smart Contracts, Native Tokens, DApp Connector, and other essential components. 

Jonathan is well-versed in conducting use case analysis and tokenomics, as well as interfacing with decentralized storage, server APIs, and integrating databases.

He is knowledgeable in establishing robust CI/CD (Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment) flows and integrating them into development processes. Additionally, he is skilled in conducting thorough unit testing to ensure the reliability and security of his smart contract solutions.

Johnathon is responsible for contributing to the documentation, implementing the Aiken wrapper library, and maintaining them to remain up-to-date with advancements in the developer ecosystem.
