What open source tooling is needed to enable the Cardano developer ecosystem to thrive?
Open source software, hardware and data solutions encourage greater transparency and security, and help reduce costs by developing, collaborating, and fixing in the open. More information on open source can be found here.
Cardano Open: Developers (technical track) category aims to support developers and engineers to contribute to or develop open source technology centered around enabling and improving the Cardano developer experience.
The goal of this category is to create developer-friendly tooling and approaches that streamline an integrated development environment, help to create code more efficiently and provide an ease of use for developers.
In all cases, proposals in this category will be expected to select an open source license for their technology which as a minimum allows the community to copy, inspect, and alter the output of their project.
Details of the selected open source license must be submitted by the applicants as part of their proposal. As part of their deliverables, projects will also be required to submit open source, high quality documentation for their technology that can be used as a learning resource by the rest of the community.
