Grant for Tooling

Brief Description
DevNode is an open source code and data stackoverflow focused on smaller community peer group dynamics that we’ve seen in DAOs.
Devnode is working to improve the tooling for developers trying to learn in web3. Developers want support as they try navigate the fast changing landscape in web3 and we’ve seen trends that we’re trying to drive further.

Detailed description

DevNode is a community of developers that came together online to build an open source toolset to support developer education. We aim to use radicle protocols and believe that our missions are very aligned. We want to build out the MVP of this tooling in order to test our assumptions on the market, new DAO dynamics, and our platform.
The aim is to launch this project in partnership with 5 top web3 DAOs as partners. UMA, DeveloperDAO, and Ceramic being the first three.
We also aim to raise further funding from the other DAOs we choose to partner with.
Documentation and SDK to allow other interface to leverage and contribute to the data in the devnode network
There are a lot of ideas flying around on how we can improve the learning experience within these micro communities and across them. We’ve tried to keep the MVP as bare bones as possible to focus on testing our core hypotheses.
DevNode is a great experiment in truly internet native DevDAOs. This project is being built by a community of developers that met online to build open source software, funded by grants, and contributors rewarded by a collectively co-ordinated treasury. This should allow the radicle ecosystem to get into the weeds on what works and what doesn’t across the lifecycle of these new orgs.
We welcome input and challenges from the ecosystem.

What would UMA lose out on if it did not fund this grant

UMA would lose out on a vital opportunity to help improve and support Web3 developers, which is important because it provides better access to knowledge and education for people who are in the Web3 space. By providing these support, we can help build a Web3 community with the tools they need to succeed in their future endeavors.

Thank you for your application!

Two quick questions it would help to have some clarity on:

  1. Are you creating a separate application for each DAO? Meaning would the questions asked to UMA be combined with questions asked around Ceramic/DeveloperDAO, etc?
  2. Does the funding cover any support in answering questions or is it focused only on building out the interface?
