Is anyone working on an iOS or Android app that sends notifications to bakers for missed endorsements and bakes? For example, we enter our baker address and the app sends a push notification when issues arise?
The TezosNotiferBot does exactly this. It is a Telegram bot that allows users to enter one or multiple addresses and track them. Users can enter the address of a baker and it will alert them of missed endorsements and bakes. It can also alert users of other things like transactions, new delegations, and votings.
Tezos needs better promotional resources available, some kind of an advocacy toolkit that could allow the community to help drive awareness for Tezos. Is that something the Foundation could provide for the community?
We believe that the creation of promotional resources are best left up to the local entities that the Tezos Foundation has funded for the purpose of general marketing and business development. Tezos Commons and TQ Tezos are prime examples. That being said, we believe having an advocacy toolkit for Tezos would be beneficial, and have passed the idea along to teams in the ecosystem who are best prepared to create such a toolkit.
Is it possible to fund someone that could build a step by step tutorial online or YouTube where it’s easy to follow for beginners to fully understand what goes into building dapps on Tezos?
We support a diverse mixture of introductory courses, developer training, and other resources to bolster the Tezos developer community. If you’re interested in Dapp development, the BUIDL Labs team created Cryptoverse Wars, an interactive code school to build Dapps on Tezos using SmartPy. The OCTO Technology team has created a similar resource for the LIGO language, Tezos Academy. We are also supporting two new training resources. Tezos Kitchen by the Stove Labs team, a comprehensive and up-to-date curriculum of content for developers to learn how Tezos can be utilized for a variety of use-cases, and Michelson Labs, an interactive Tezos developer training program from Baking Bad.
