Tech talks with tomer



Welcome to the second episode of season 2 of Tech Talks with Tomer, a video and podcast series hosted by Tomer Weller, VP of Product at Stellar Development Foundation. In every episode, Tomer speaks with some of the smartest engineers in blockchain about the biggest innovations happening in the space.

In this episode, Tomer chats with Fraser Brown and Riad S. Wahby, co-founders of Cubist. Cubist builds security-focused developer tools for multi-chain/cross-chain development in Web3, helping developers write contracts for multiple chains with the ease of just writing for one. Cubist received a grant through the Stellar Bridge Bounty Program in the fall of 2022. In this episode, Tomer, Fraser and Riad talk about why Cubist bridged with Stellar, how to build securely in a cross-chain environment, and developer tooling in blockchain.

Both Riad and Fraser are assistant professors at Carnegie Mellon University, in addition to running Cubist.
