  • Help contributors build web3 tools and public goods, by providing support, information and mentorships

Brand usage

The Dev Guild has no direct plans to use the Developer DAO Brand other than how it is already used on Github repo’s the guild works on.

Thanks for getting this up!

I am in favor of the guild being a support system for our people and projects! I was unclear (as many were, i imagine) about what we might do our first season.

We should do what we can at the next dev guild sync to fill the vacancy or make a decision for what to do about that role. Since the guid is to mostly be a funnel for our projects in S1, hopefully we can get someone willing and able in that most vital position!

One thing i might add for a success metric is creating a methodology to determine a guild or DAO led initiative. A process to help determine/vet the next crop of ideas we want to foster and support to help set the objective for further seasons. In my mind, we are setting ourselves up for success by making the guild at large a good idea factory we can then put funds and people behind.

Building awareness of the need for Talent Coordinator would be an approach I would encourage and not rushing into it just because it is vacant. Let’s be mindful and learn from our past.

e.g. The Mentorship programme has just unofficially started, and the dust hasn’t even settled on that…by a long stretch. I’d be interested to hear what this role proposes in this context and how this type of coordination is going to work. I really want to avoid any more mess of communication. I’d like to see a real sense of consciousness in relation to that.

Agree with this. Thinking ahead, and taking the time and space to do that organically. We’re setting up processes elsewhere to give clarification to what these fostered ideas might be in line with our DAO values.

As a budget steward, I pledge support for this initiative

If no one else is willing/interested, I will pick up the Talent Coord as well. I already have ideas that i have expressed about building the funnel for dev guild and our projects. @kempsterrrr
