title: Additional GUI Developer
author: Jaquee
amount: 2,475
date: November 22, 2016
---
### What
Additional GUI developer.
### Who
I’m Jaquee. I have 10+ yrs experience of various kinds of coding. I’m new to the crypto world. Have only been around for a couple of months and i like what i see. I’ve been contributing to Monero for about a month now and this is what i’ve come up with so far:
[https://github.com/monero-project/monero-core/commits/master?author=Jaqueeee](https://github.com/monero-project/monero-core/commits/master?author=Jaqueeee)
[https://github.com/monero-project/monero/commits/master?author=jaqueeee](https://github.com/monero-project/monero/commits/master?author=jaqueeee)
### Why
I love the fundamentals of Monero and want to get more involved in the community. I believe an official GUI will help Monero go mainstream. Ilya has done a terrific job so far, but his time is limited and I’m happy to help out. The public beta is soon to be released but a lot of features such as daemon integration (start/stop), better remote node support, ux improvements, porting to smartphones, third party plugin system etc. are not finished yet.
### The Proposal and Milestones
Hourly pay: 4.5 xmr (~$25)
10-20 hours per week over 6 months. ~550 hours
Total: 2475 XMR
Milestones: I’ll write reports every 50 hours and will be working on the missing features and future requests from community.
Payments: 11 payments of 225 XMR, one for each 50 hour milestone (paid in XMR)
### Expiration
9 months
Edit: Changed xml.to integration in examples -> third party plugin system.

title: Documentation and cleanup of source code
author: tewinget
amount: 3,600
date: September 11, 2015
---
### What
Clean up and properly document (doxygen) the monero source code, and handle any merges necessary to do so seamlessly with other concurrent development efforts.
### Who
I'm Thomas Winget, and I've been contributing to the Monero codebase since around June 2014. My largest contribution is the migration from storing the blockchain in a static, binary format to storing the blockchain using a database API, as well as two BlockchainDB implementations (LMDB and BerkeleyDB). Other contributions of mine can be found via the network graph on github or simply looking at my fork.
As a side effect of the work I've done already on Monero, I'm rather familiar with most of the codebase. This puts me in a good position to write down how everything works and fits together, as I've had to sort that out already for many parts.
As a side effect of this effort, I will further cement the knowledge I have of the codebase and gain knowledge in areas I'm less familiar with, enabling me to efficiently implement new features in the future and guide others who may have questions regarding a specific module. In addition, documenting the code will function as a sort of code review, allowing the possibility of spotting any bugs (minor or otherwise).
### Why
In my time developing on Monero, there have been countless instances where I need to reference what another piece of code does in order to work with it, and having all the code documented properly in an easily accessible manner (doxygen) would be helpful for that for anyone working in Monero's codebase. I have also come across areas where the code could be made more efficient or clear without changing any functionality, as well as many typographical errors (though these are minor, I think we can all agree they're annoying if nothing else).
Documentation is by far not a glamorous task (probably why it's a bit sparse in Monero), but every development effort benefits immensely from properly documented code.
### Proposals and Milestones
I would like to spend about 20 hours per week working on the above, at a rate of 45 XMR per hour (just over $20/hr USD at the time of writing this), paid out every week. I am unsure whether or not 80 hours of work will be enough to cover the entire codebase. There are over 70,000 lines of source in the src/ folder alone, and there is code in other folders that brings the total to over 100k, so this is no small task!
Milestones would be as follows:
- First 20 hours (900/3600 XMR)
- Second 20 hours (1800/3600 XMR)
- Third 20 hours (2700/3600 XMR)
- Fourth 20 hours (3600/3600 XMR)
After each milestone (and during), I will be available for comment, so anything that seems unclear in my documentation can be addressed and dealt with accordingly.

title: fluffyponys Conference Circuit Jan 2017 Edition
author: fluffypony
amount: 590
date: December 9, 2016
---
### Introduction
As you know, I've spent a fair amount of time, energy, and money, travelling overseas to speak about Monero over the last 2.5 years. At the time the community simply couldn't afford to cover my expenses, and it was a burden I happily bore as it raised a great deal of awareness of Monero. At this time I'd like to raise funds to cover my Jan 2017 conference trip.
### The Trip
*2016-12-26 to 2017-01-01*: Hamburg, Germany, for 33c3 (not being funded, for my own costs)
* 2017-01-01 to 2017-01-05 *: Amsterdam, The Netherlands, I'll be talking at Bitcoin Wednesday on 2017-01-04
* 2017-01-06 to 2017-01-09 *: San Francisco, USA, I'll be talking at Coinbase (note: not open to public attendance) on 2017-01-06, and I'll be at the Monero Silicon Valley Meetup on 2017-01-07
* 2017-01-10 to 2017-01-16 *: Florida, USA, where the wife and I will take a few day's break and explore the Keys (not being funded, for my own costs)
* 2017-01-16 to 2017-01-20 *: Miami, USA, where I'll be talking at The North American Bitcoin Conference on 2017-01-17 / 2017-01-18
* 2017-01-20 to 2017-01-30 *: Secret Location, where I'll once again be representing Monero at the Satoshi Roundtable (note: not open to public attendance)
### Funding Structure
A few points of order:
- 33c3's costs are not included in this, as we are not hosting a Monero assembly at 33c3 this year due to how difficult it was to get tickets - only 3 members of the Monero community will be in attendance, that I know, besides myself.
- I'm not expecting to raise the full amount, and anything not raised by the end of January will be for my expense.
- All the expenses are calculated on basic 3-star hotels (excluding hostels) and economy flights. I will cover upgrades, as well as my wife's tickets and costs, of my own volition.
- I have not factored in food and drink costs, and there is no per diem, as that's largely not a big deal and I don't want to bankrupt the community.
- All of my travel is already 100% booked and even mostly paid for (discounts on up-front hotel payments), so my trip is not contingent on fundraising.
- Due to the nature of international travel, jet lag, flight availability, conference timing, and the need to prepare, I always give myself a few days on either side of a speaking engagement.
- I am not paying to speak at any of the conferences / events, nor am I being paid - it's all 100% free and at the cost of the community and myself.
- Flight pricing was done using Kiwi's multicity search, and a reasonable combination was selected (note that for some flights I couldn't take the cheapest due to extremely tight time constraints between Bitcoin Wednesday and Coinbase, but I can't reflect this on Kiwi easily).
- Hotel pricing was done using BookingComplete's multicity search.
Note that if the proposal is over-funded I will take a reasonable portion of the over-fund for food / drink / taxis / per-diem, and the rest I will reapportion to other fundraisers as needed.
### Costs Breakdown
Flights come to $2963, all in.
Accommodation in Amsterdam comes to $362.
Accommodation in San Francisco comes to $540.
Accommodation in Miami comes to $413.
Accommodation in the Satoshi Roundtable Location comes to $297 (can't show the screenshot for that:)
Total fundraiser is, therefore, for $4575. Monero is currently sitting at $7.75, so the fundraiser is for 590 XMR.

At the request of myself , I am editing my proposal that fluffypony recommended I edit that was edited from the initial idea. So, without further ado:
### What: GetMonero.org Redesign and Restructure
My project looks to give a complete site redesign to getmonero.org. As it is right now, it's not very user-friendly, doesn't look very pretty, and just doesn't look as professional as one would assume from the sophisticated technology that is Monero. That can easily be changed, with a souped up design that is modern, slick, and inviting to anyone who wants to become a part of the Monero community, while still maintaining the charm that comes with open-source projects.
How do we plan to develop it? Upon speaking with the FluffyPony, there are three very important things that the redesign must keep in mind:
1. JavaScript must not be used in the new site, as a good amount of the site's traffic comes from Tor.
2. Be developed using Jekyll
3. The forum is going to be done away with, but the FFS will remain (not my idea, it was told to me). Right now the forum isn't being used for much besides the FFS. So we need a way to put the FFS into the site proper.
Nowadays CSS can do incredible things on its own. There are even a number of CSS frameworks that operate without Javascript. The current site uses Bootstrap, although there are other alternatives to consider. Yes, Bootstrap has some JS inclusions, but it operates just fine without them as they're really for specific things (which we shouldn't need). There are other options, such as Burma, or even no framework at all.
Also, the site information will be restructured, with the differing pages being put into different, or even new, categories to make the information available more accessible to everybody.
### Who: And you are...?
Heyo, you can call me Rehrar. My wife (Mrs. Rehrar) and I are web designers and developers. We really enjoy what we do, and specialize in helping small businesses get a web presence, or revamp their old websites. We really believe in XMR and what it stands for, and would love to extend our talents towards the community to help.
Our online portfolio is in the works and we were hoping to launch before mid-March, but a huge slew of jobs came in all at once and we've been working like madmen to get them done. The fact that we can find decent work before our portfolio is up is pretty great for us. For now, here's a sample of the work that we're doing:
[Nikki Karay, Cosplayer](http://nikkikaray.com) (a website we made for a cosplayer)
[A Striking Image](http://floodedcallus.com) (a site that we made for a carpet cleaning business)
[Remembering the Time](http://rememberingthetime.net) (a site we made for a personal historian)
### Why: Seriously, is this needed?
Yes, a site redesign is very needed. Monero has great technology, a great dev team, and a great community behind it. Some people are of the opinion that the site is fine, and that we don't need anything new or different. But more people discover and subsequently become involved in the community, the better it is for everyone, and we need to make it as easy as possible for newcomers to get find the resources they need.
I'll be honest, if a layperson comes to this website, the first thing that comes to mind will not be 'sophisticated technology'. Some might say: "But if they dig into the reasons and technology behind it they will see...". Look, not everyone does this, and to the masses, first impressions count for a lot. We can't hide behind the way we wish the world works. Marketing is important, and a having a good website in the digital age is Marketing 101.
Technology development and marketing are not mutually exclusive, and I think too many people forget that. And seeing as how I would be unable to help the dev team anyways, I think I can use my talents to further the community despite that. :)
Secondly, the information on the site is currently very badly structured. A lot of things just seem like a hodgepodge of pages thrown together in a category that it more or less can squeeze. Along with the redesign, some great restructuring needs to happen.
### Proposals & Milestones
We are willing to work for 2 XMR/hr, the following milestones are estimated hours of how long it will take to complete the project. We will ask a flat fee, so any hours above will be a donation to the community. With this in mind, I would like to propose the following milestones.
**Milestone 1: Front Page Design and Site Restructuring (10XMR)**
Everyone has different opinions on how they think the website should look. The first step would be to decide as a community what the overall feel of the website should be. We (Mrs. Rehrar and I) would design two possible landing pages to be discussed by the community. While it is possible to make suggestions at this stage about the content that is included in the mockup, the bigger idea is the design, look, and feel. The final decision of which design to use rests with me, but I will take all suggestions and ideas into consideration.
The next portion is the restructuring of getmonero.org to make information better structured and easier to access. I will present a tentative restructuring of the site for comment, and will make changes as necessary.
After these decisions are made we will move to Milestone 2.
_Notes:_
It is possible that the community will greatly dislike both designs. If this should happen, the community can create a design themselves, or additional mockups can be made for 5 XMR each. Sorry, but because this has the potential to go on for infinity before people reach agreement, there needs to be a limit somewhere.
**MAJOR NOTE:**
Milestone 1 is practically complete already. We just couldn't wait to present our work to the community. You can see our designs in the albums below:
