Welcome to the sixth 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 October 31st with Jonathan Sampson, Senior Developer Relations at Brave. Over the course of the AMA, Sampson fielded both pre-submitted and live questions from Redditors concerning a variety of topics, including the latest on Brave’s ad platform trials, Brave’s reception in the broader tech and web communities, and his favorite things about working at the company. He also gave advice on what keen developers can do to contribute to the BAT/Brave ecosystem, hinted at a few plans for upcoming projects (a Jonathan Sampson podcast, perhaps?) and geeked out recalling memories from the former MSN Gaming Zone and Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II.
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, November 14th, and will feature Brian Brown, Brave’s Chief Business Officer.
