The Colony Network has been under construction for a *while*. Seriously, the first lines of code were committed in 2014 (yes, before Ethereum was a thing). Since then, we’ve had a guiding philosophy: Do it right.
At Colony, we use the OKR method for setting quarterly goals and keeping our distributed team of 22 in sync and accountable. Below is our quarterly report on Q3 and a look ahead at Q4 2018.
Multi-signature transactions are one of the most useful patterns for smart contracts and the dApps that utilize them. But in the ‘vanilla’ implementation of multi-signature design, transaction reviewers (owners), are assigned contract-wide and review all transactions.
working with Ethereum wallets during dApp development just got a little bit easier: Purser is now open-source on GitHub!
We’re rolling deep at ETHBerlin (Sept 7–9) with Colony team members coming in from Thailand, Singapore, Romania, Poland, Spain, UK, and USA!
This summer, Colony’s distributed hackathon saw over 50 participants join in from 15 countries over the course of about 3 weeks. It was tons of fun, and we got a little sample of the creativity and ingenuity out there in the Ethereum ecosystem.
As Jack mentioned in his article on Colony’s vision for perpetual developer incentives, the hackathon we held this summer was just a taster of what we hope will be a continuous model of community development.
At Colony, we use the OKR method for setting quarterly goals and keeping our distributed team of 26 in sync and accountable. Below is our quarterly report on Q2 and a look ahead at Q3 2018.
To all who participated in the 2018 Colony Hackathon, we salute you o7 !
Whether you’ve been steadily building since day 0, or have jumped in at the last minute and decided to furiously sprint from now until the end, it’s time to ship it!
Most people are used to interacting with polished interfaces that are built specifically to hide and abstract away all the complicated machinery ‘under the hood’. Good UI/UX does this exceptionally well. So well that when most people imagine what an app is, they have a user interface in mind.
Colony’s Developer Incentives The Colony Hackathon is an MVP of a perpetual inflation funding model for developers building applications on the Colony Network. Not every app can or should have a token.
The Hackathon started officially this week, but you can still sign up! Create an issue on GitHub to register a project, and join Gitter to chat with other participants about project ideas, find teammates, and ask questions.
Over the next 20 days, we’re looking for creative, brilliant minds (hey, that’s you!) to build on, integrate, and extend Colony using the colonyJS library. We can’t wait to see what you come up with.
This article is written for those of you out there who are interested in participating in The Colony Hackathon, but aren’t totally confident you’re ready to build something.
A little less than 4 days to go until the Colony Hackathon kicks off on June 5th! We’re really excited by the great ideas already being bandied about on Gitter, and the projects taking form on Github.
So you’ve decided to join the Hackathon. What next?
Colony is most fundamentally a platform and toolset meant for collaborative building — new relationships, teams, and entire open organizations. We’ve been building Colony for a while, but it’s time you started building with us too.
Bounties are a great way to incentivise contributions to projects, but they impart significant cognitive overhead and coordination cost on the issuer of the bounty.
At Colony, we use the OKR method for setting quarterly goals and keeping our distributed team of 15 in sync and accountable. Below is our quarterly report on Q1 2018 and a look ahead at Q2 2018.
Deploying a decentralized application introduces some interesting security considerations that might not come up in more traditional development.
