Looks great Lulli!!!
You have already begun making great commits to DXvote and the DXgov dev team, very glad to have you!


Someone who uses Python! :smiley: nice to see some numpy and nltk around here :smiley:

Also NOVA > UNL :stuck_out_tongue:


It’s been a pleasure working with Luli for the past few weeks! Great work so far, keep it up!

Happy to see more and more people trusting DXdao and joining full-time.


Luc has been a fantastic addition to the team and I look forward to his coming contributions. It’s a shame that because of the large timezone difference that the dev calls are always at a bad time for you. Also having someone with data science and data engineering experience will definitely be useful in the near future when we decide to further build out dxvote’s infrastructure.

Hopefully, you’ll decide to stick around longterm.

Payment proposal for the second part of the working proposal, November 15th, 2021 - December 15th 2021 :

  • Background:

This is my first working period after the training period. The 2 month of the proposal went very well according to planning for creating new features, bugs fixing and all the architecting + developing efforts. I worked mainly on DXvote for UI/UX improvements, maintainabilty and optimizatins refactorings. I also worked on Guilds new app architecting and developing UI/UX.


  • The things went very well as planed. A lot of the work of DXvote delivered as a nicer UI/UX in the list of proposals, the filters of proposals, and the proposal detail view.

  • The internal refactor also went well as planed, thanks a lot to great team managment by Ross, and great dev mates that aligned their reviews and their implementations of refactor with this scope.

  • I gained a lot of knowledge on web3 standards and the way apps fetch data from the blockchain, and call functions in the smart contracts. I gain understanding of the blockchain itself, and checking other people PRs helped me to understand better the theory I was learning through the documentations.

  • The participation on the meetings was very interesting. I wasn’t able to provide much feedback or brainstorming at high business level, but I put all my focus and efforts into engineering: architecting the front end (based on what I disliked on DXvote) for Guilds and DXvote refactors, rewriting markup and styles for better maintainance, debugging and fixing bugs of DXvote and good collaborative discussions with designers and other devs regarding new features.

A brief list of PRs on DXvote and Guilds I worked on this period:

  • Compensation:

This payment proposal then is for second month of the period (Month 2):
4800 DAI
