The Basic Attention Token is the new token for the digital advertising industry. It pays publishers for their content and users for their attention, while providing advertisers with more in return for their ads.
Welcome to the twelfth post in our series of BAT Community-run AMAs. The ongoing AMA series on Reddit is a seven-month-long event that features various guests from the Brave and BAT teams. The goal of the series is twofold: to give fans of the project an opportunity to interact directly with team members, and to give team members—especially those who operate largely behind the scenes—a chance to share their insights and offer the community a window into their work. The most recent AMA took place on January 30th and featured Joel Reis, Senior Software Engineer for iOS, and Sergey Zhukovsky, Senior Software Engineer for Android at Brave. Joel and Serg fielded both pre-submitted and live questions from Redditors concerning a variety of topics, like the main differences between implementing browser features on mobile and desktop, and how frequently the two mobile teams collaborate. The pair also shared what they love most about working at Brave, and offered advice on the best ways to keep up with the ever-evolving tech landscape: “Practice in it” and “Focus on something you care about,” recommends Serg. According to Joel, “Drinking more coffee” is the key. Highlights can be found below, with a link to the full AMA at the bottom of this post. The next AMA will take place on Wednesday, February 6th, and will feature Holli Bohren, Brave’s Chief Financial Officer.
