Rights and duties of the winner as a member of the Free TON Dev Experience Jury
The duties of the Free TON Dev Experience Jury members are the following:
- to ensure smooth running of Free TON Dev Experience subgovernance;
- to ensure development of contests proposals;
- to review the contests proposals;
- to assess submissions for the contests, including if necessary code review or documentation review;
- to ensure timely distribution of funds;
- to participate in the activities of the Free TON Dev Experience subgovernance on a regular basis.
The Free TON Dev Experience Jury members can’t judge the applications and submissions from themselves, organisations they belong to/companies they work for. It’s the responsibility of the Free TON Dev Experience Jury members to declare the affiliation and withdraw from assessment. This reason constitutes a valid excuse for any juror to abstain from judging the contest submissions.
For the purpose of the efficient and timely assessment the jurors will be split into groups according to the topics of the contests to be run within Free TON Dev Experience subgovernance: SDK Contests, Toolchain Contests, Node Contests, and other. Check Free TON Dev Experience subgovernance proposal for more information.
The Free TON Dev Experience Jury members are eligible for their services for the remuneration from the Jury Remuneration Fund. The rewards are to be defined on case basis.
Assessment of the entrants to Free TON Dev Experience Jury Contest
Each of the initial Free TON Dev Experience jurors has to assess all the incoming applications.
A juror must assess the application on a scale of 1-10 (10 - the highest score, 1 - the lowest score), based on assessment criteria.
A juror must provide a writing feedback for each application.
The applications that can’t be read or contain irrelevant information, or submitted after the deadline are to be disqualified and rejected.
Participants must correctly upload their applications to the Free TON Dev Experience Jury contest (in PDF format) in order for the jurors to view them. If the application can’t be open or is submitted in the wrong format, the candidate will be rejected by the jury.
Participants must submit their applications before the deadline of the contest. If the application is submitted late, it will be rejected.
All submissions must include the contestant’s social network identity, a Telegram ID and Github ID, by which jurors can verify that the submission belongs to the individual who submitted it. If not, the submission may be rejected.
Any juror may approach any applicant via Telegram and appoint an interview or ask several questions in writing to clarify any facts given in the application. The rejection to give an interview or to answer the questions can affect the score.
Anyone can participate, but Free TON does not distribute Tons to US citizens or entities.
