Last Friday 27/08 concluded my trial period as a contributor in DXdao and more precisely, Omen team. As per my worker proposal I will be requesting the second payout here.
Unfortunately, web dev human resources became scarce in Omen, and other teams, which makes it very difficult, quite impossible, to mentor a junior developer as I am. And so I won’t be continuing contributing. Though, I learned a ton and I am immensely grateful for the opportunity DXdao handed me 3 months ago. I will tell everyone goodbye during today’s gov call.
As I started with Omen, a couple of weeks before my contribution period initiated, digging inside the codebase and coding tiny tasks I felt confident I could overcome the challenge Omen development represented. But starting a web dev career within a dao, where the environment pushes you to be as independent as possible, rapidly turned out wrong for me and for my ‘negative’ spillovers, or at least recurrent cumbersome questions, to the team. After fighting with git, learning deeper react, styled components, understanding the latest way of writing js code, the way Omen code is pushed, collaborated on, I still managed to contribute at my modest, beginner level.
Massive kudos to @Violet which, despite having loads on his plate, took the time to answer my beginners questions and review all my PRs. Thank you @corkus and @Melanie for giving me the opportunity to be part of the team and assist me.
I still feel very lucky because within 3months of experience at DXdao I managed to meet most of you in Paris while many of you never had that chance in years. I am blessed I took part in it, and this is probably not a farewell since I’m sure we’ll cross path again. DXdao has great talents, powerful ideas and a super product suite. I wish you to deliver great management and make the best out of it.
The main objectives I worked on were the refactoring of styles and some OMN airdrop front-end feature.
Here are all my PRs. From the 27, 5 were canceled resulting in 22 approved.
