Contribute

Devcon Improvement Proposals (DIPs) provide a mechanism for collecting collaborative community input on what should be included at the upcoming Devcon.

While we are excited to have a more formal process to hear ideas from the community (roughly inspired by the more decentralized PEP, BIP and EIP processes), this is an experiment, and it should be understood that approval of proposals ultimately lies solely with the Devcon team. DIPs focus on collaboration in the ecosystem between different projects.

The Devcon team also publishes Requests For Proposals (RFPs), which are specific ideas we'd love to see take place for the next Devcon edition. They are available on our forum.

DIP stands for Devcon Improvement Proposal. A DIP is a proposal put forth by members of the community describing a desired new feature or process to improve Devcon. A DIP should be concise and provide as much information as possible as well as a rationale for the proposal. The DIP author is responsible for making the case for a proposed DIP, and community members will be able to comment on it. It is up to the Devcon Team to choose which proposals are considered, reviewed, and accepted.

Attendee Experience

We set up [Planetscape][planetscape], a dystopian escape game for [36C3][36c3] based on the dreadful effects of climate change (CCC did not sponsor the game). Planetscape is organized in 20 chapters, and requires players to solve quests in real life, explore the congress to find hints and interact with people. Planetscape had 20 levels, 254 players, [1300 transactions][ps:transactions] to the smart contract, and 7 teams finished the game and claimed their prize. The players" feedback was heartwarming: "We were about to leave the congress but we found Planetscape, and we stayed longer to play!", "Please make another escape game for the next congress!", "This was the best thing of the congress", "Highlight of this year" ([tweet][ps:highlight]). During the game, players:

  • Discovered new areas and activities, the game kept them engaged with the event. - United forces with others while playing the game. - Understood and enjoyed the theme of game.

This proposal aims to make Devcon6 carbon neutral. Event participants may voluntarily contribute to this goal using tooling that estimates their carbon footprint and make a contribution by transferring funds on Polygon. This DIP also aspires to pave the way to making Devcon events carbon neutral in the future and can be considered as a stepping stone to DIP-1 (2020-07-20) and DIP-12 (2020-10-22).
