    Hello everybody! I appreciate this initiative, but I think more literature on the web would be a great push to make this technology spreading out. Up to now the documentation of the sdk is quite limited, and the absence of a IDE would prevent its adoption in medium and large companies. Can you share the plan for the close future?
