The highlight of the summer was a two weeks visit by seven CoZ developers. They presented the neo-sharp project which they have been working on since March. neo-sharp is a new node implementation which is modular; less coupling and higher cohesion than the version running on MainNet. It allows for easier distribution of work, better test coverage, easier debug and optimizations, while also allowing for faster innovation on independent modules.
The NGD R&D team joined in neo-sharp development for two weeks, sharing knowledge and aligning goals for the months to come. We are unanimously very positive towards the neo-sharp project and look forward to its finalization in a few months. The experience of working together side by side was appreciated by all parties, and is something we would like to plan as a frequent event with other community projects. A special shoutout to Grace in NGD, who was dubbed Heroine by CoZ for her tireless help on where to buy the best noodles and where to see the World Cup (with a lot of little beer).
NEO Game Competition was still greeted with active responses in July, with over 200 teams signing up for it. As NEO Game Incentive Plan suggests, Nominee Award will be granted to a few works selected from the new submissions on a weekly basis from July onwards. This month has witnessed 13 teams secure the Nominee Award. We would like to involve more game lovers in the NEO Game competition in the hope of building a healthier blockchain-based game community and ecosystem. (See http://neo.game/ for more details)

We at NGD have seen that the community sentiment has been decreasing during the last few weeks. There are a lot of questions and rumors spreading around. To address these concerns, pls see details here on Reddit: http://reddit.com/r/neo....
