[Worker Proposal] New BitShares Core Dev
« on: January 11, 2017, 08:33:22 PM »

Dear BitShares Stakeholder,

We would like to introduce a new worker proposal that pays for a new BitShares core dev.

Please vote for Worker 1.14.49: Alfredo Garcia, Bitshares Core Dev
 
This Worker Proposal is for 6 months, and will include fixing Graphene Issues via github, and building the new features for the Bitshares platform and DEx that the community has been asking for.
 
Worker Details
  • Total Cost of hiring Alfredo: 3,261,671 BTS (~9600 USD at $20/hr)
  • This Proposed 6-month Worker will cost Bitshares 1,630,835 BTS (~4800 USD)
  • *BitShares Munich will pay the other half, ~4800 USD
  • Worker Lifetime: 6 months, (Jan 23 - Jul 23, 2017)
  • Working Hours: 20h per week
  • Worker focus on the 190 Github Issues, and new BitShares features from BitShares Roadmap

Quote
Note from Chris4210:
We are calculating with a stable BTS price of 0.0033 BTS/USD, including a small security buffer for BTS price, voting volatility, etc. The Worker funds will be paid to our BitShares Munich (bitshares-munich-devs) account, and we will manage the regular monthly payouts to Alfredo.

*BitShares Munich will be paying half of his salary (see above), since increasing the security of the Bitshares platform also increases the security of our products such as BlockPay.

Short bio about Alfredo
  • A professional programmer for over 10 years
  • Hacker forever, prefers free markets and voluntary interaction
  • Codes in pretty much any high level language like C++, C, etc.
  • High level experience also in php/mysql/javascript/python
  • Has been learning his way around Graphene and projects headed up by BitShares Munich such as BlockPay, Smartcoins Wallet, C-IPFS, Stealth, Echo, Bridges and Gateways.

The last 4 years Alfredo started working in the financial field making automated programs for Meta Trader, Ninja Trader, Calgo, Tradestation and other platforms. Then he moved a bit to binary options development, this is mainly Brokers that have web based API's so he started to make automated software that trade in binary options.
 
Most recently, he started to work with Bitcoin related projects. He started working for others at some online casinos and small projects but it was extremely hard to find serious people in the field. He has also worked for the Supernet "Iguana" project, helped them out quite a bit. Similar to the "Komodo" project.
 
Alfredo is under the supervision of, and reports daily to @kenCode at BitShares Munich.
 
Ken will post weekly updates in his usual thread here:
https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php/topic,22576.0.html
and Alfredo’s commits can always be monitored here:

Please vote for Worker 1.14.49: Alfredo Garcia, Bitshares Core Dev

As you guys know, I am kind of a hardass. I will fire as fast as I hire, I have zero patience for slackers, so rest assured that the rest of my team will also be security auditing his work just like the other products that we have audited recently. Github issues, mem leaks, wiresharking, the works.
 
Getting a Core Dev for 6 months, for only ~$5K is a sweetheart deal.
 
Please vote for Alfredo, and as always my updates will be posted on his progress every week.

Let's make this happen.  The more successful workers the better.

I would like to see some sort of collaboration between the workers at this point so there is no major overlap.  SVK, Vikram, and Alfredo.

What exactly does this mean? There is room for a lot of clarifiaction:

Issues in github? There are plenty to go for a while, which ones are planned for with what milestones?
What new features specifically has the community been asking for?

Without a clear plan for work inefficiency creeps.

Looking forward to the reply.

exactly, please give the detail of the new features in the develop plan, there should be a process for the community to agree on adding new features.

I will post a roadmap for this worker. We want to start with the long issue list on Github first, and then move into building new features. Which features we should build will be discussed in the forum, and on the mumble.

Here is the latest feature list for the BitShares Blockchain. I collected most different ideas from chat, mumble and old forum posts/roadmaps.

The goal is to keep the list updated, and vote in the forum/mumble about the next feature.
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1kgTYNEeqYP8xrEKBs2L0uc52xjQCPURuigI2CIplEtE/edit?usp=sharing

@ken can give a direct roadmap which of the 190 open github issues we are planning to fix first.

As Chris mentioned above, the mumble will help to finalize the roadmap. The outstanding issues on github really need to be cleaned up too, that's pretty obvious.
 
As for the new features that the community wants, let's start with the list that you started Data, the one we discussed on telegram. There's 5 or 6 items on it if I recall.

This is really great!! Thanks a lot for the initiative! I will update my proxy to whoever votes for this if necessary.

Feedback / questions:
1) Is there public information about Alfredo Garcia available besides his name? LInkedin, github etc?
2) I can not finally judge this as I am not a developer but did you think about a third party code reviewer such as Cryptonomex or Bunkerchainlabs? Or does Bitshares Munich hire one anyway? If so it would be nice if the results of these reviews and who did the review would be public as well. In the end such a review is effective if the reviewer has a reputation (to loose).

1) No. Have faith in me and my team, I hope my track record speaks for itself at this point. I only work with the brightest minds in the world.
2) We have auditors on staff, and I always encourage the public to audit our code as well on my github repos. I totally agree with you about reviews too and welcome them here.

I am all for this but why is there NO information about the dev? Not even a github acc?

EDit: It should be public anyway already since if he worked on "BlockPay, Smartcoins Wallet, C-IPFS, Stealth, Echo, Bridges and Gateways" as stated in the OP this activity should be on the respective github repos of the above projects?

i like the idea about not putting a entire "employee paycheck" on the blockchain, but rather a "subsidize request" from a community player.


i feel more comfortable to pay someone who is willing to take financial risk with bitshares to perform work on bitshares rather seeing it as a work place.
