Working agenda/structure

Additional Information

We hope to have a defined agenda for both governance related work and actual coding. We also anticipate a morning meeting, afternoon summary of work complete, and daily presentations on cool stuff.

Proposed Schedule is as follows:

  • Tuesday & Wednesday focused on Governance*
  • Thursday Community day/
  • Friday & Saturday Dev Camp.

We'll use the issue queue on this project to track/discuss potential agenda items in advance of the sprint and will establish an agenda/structure and list of objectives prior.

Agenda items (issues) can be labeled "Governance", "Development" and "Marketing" to indicate the focus.

In addition to discussing agenda items in advance, feel free to thumbs up/down to indicate interest.

Additional Information

Cost is roughly $100 per day.

Sponsor opportunities are available to help defray attendee costs and potentially seed fund specific issues to address during the sprint.
