Seeking Mission Request Sponsorship

I’m looking for a top 100 delegate to sponsor a mission to create a Developer Resource Hub for Optimism and the Superchain. I believe it’s hard for new builders to start on Optimism because there’s no central place for information. This hub will make it easier and help grow the Collective.

Delegate Mission Request Summary:
This mission request seeks to establish a centralized resource hub for developers on Optimism and the Superchain. The hub will be a comprehensive repository offering a wide range of development tools, frontend libraries, debugging, testing libraries, smart contract templates, etc as well as grant guidance.

The goal is to provide clear, accessible guidance and support to teams and builders dedicated to developing on OP-Mainnet and/or as part of the Superchain.

How will this Delegate Mission Request help accomplish the above Intent?
This Delegate Mission Request, focused on establishing a Developer Resource Hub for Optimism and the Superchain, directly aligns with and supports Intent 2: Grow the Superchain. Here’s how:

  1. Facilitating Developer Access and Growth: By providing a centralized hub with comprehensive resources, we lower the entry barriers for new and existing developers.
  2. Enhancing Quality and Interaction of Deployments: With tools, templates, and guidance readily available, developers can create higher quality contracts and projects.

By centralizing resources and guidance, this mission request directly contributes to the growth and development of active builders on the Superchain.

What is required to execute this Delegate Mission Request?
To execute this Delegate Mission Request for creating a Developer Resource Hub for Optimism and the Superchain, several key elements are required:

  1. Comprehensive Resource Compilation: Assemble an extensive collection of development tools, frontend libraries, debugging tools, smart contract templates, fuzzing tools, and testing tools. These resources must be specifically chosen to meet the needs of developers working within the Optimism ecosystem, including integration with OP Mainnet and chains like Base.
  2. User-Friendly Interface: Design the hub with a focus on ease of navigation, ensuring developers can quickly find the tools or information they need. This includes intuitive categorization with filters, search functionality, and clear, concise descriptions of each resource with relevant links.
  3. Grant Information Section: Incorporate a detailed section on available grants, including types of grants, application processes, and criteria. This section should provide developers with clear guidance on how to secure financial support for their projects within the Superchain.
  4. Regular Updates and Maintenance: Ensure the hub remains up-to-date with the latest tools, libraries, and grant opportunities. This requires ongoing maintenance and regular updates.

By fulfilling these requirements, the Developer Resource Hub will be a vital asset for fostering growth and innovation on the Optimism network and the broader Superchain.

How should the Token House measure progress towards this Mission?
To track progress for the Developer Resource Hub mission, Token House should measure:

  1. Website Launch: Target date for website going live (September 2024).
  2. Visitor Metrics: Monthly count of unique visitors and average time spent on the site.
  3. Resource Count: Number of resources (tools, libraries, etc.) available on the site.

How should badgeholders measure impact upon completion of this Mission?
To measure the impact of the Developer Resource Hub mission, Citizens’ House badgeholders should focus solely on visitor metrics:

  • Total Unique Visitors: Count the cumulative number of unique visitors to the hub since its launch.
  • Repeat Visit Rate: Calculate the percentage of visitors who return to the site, indicating sustained interest.
  • Average Time Spent: Track the average duration of visits, reflecting engagement with the hub’s content.

These visitor metrics will provide a clear indication of the hub’s reach and its effectiveness in engaging the developer community.
