The major metrics for success for the dev guild are:

  • Increasing involvement of dev guild members into governance to enable fresh coordination, ideas and development of the guild.
  • At the end of the season assessing our movement toward the goals we have outlined.
  • Creating success metrics for dev engagement in the guild and how efforts like DGFQ and the talent coordinator are impacting those.
  • Ensuring all projects that need devs are continually staffed, unless development is put on hold.

Great Docs btw, i like how ya’ll created offices and have identified some of the smaller micro roles and taken them into account, where do i go to get the breakdown of the Dev Guild Services, looks like we may have a model here for building talent within a guild.

it does seem like the 1,000 bank an hour / ~ $100 USD/ hr is the formula here? with bank at .10?

Thank you!
For more details on the breakdowns head to:
Dev Guild notion

Still have refinement to go, and working toward a constitution, etc…

And yea we are acting 100% under the 1k Bank an hour, based more on the consensus of the dao, and less respective of it’s USD valuation because it will fluctuate (potentially strongly, like now).
