Background & Retrospective:
I have recently integrated the Swapr team and started collaborating with them to extend its functionalities, working with the EcoRouter in particular.
Positive: Besides starting to contribute shortly after joining, during this 2nd month in DXdao, I have been leading the effort of adding the COW protocol functionality. I believe this is the highlight of my contributions so far. I have also invested some time in taking care of minor issues on down times while my PRs required reviews.
To improve: Although the COW protocol was a success, there were a couple of issues during its implementation leading us to scale down some features while having a functional product. While sorting out minor issues I still required quite some help from other developers and was not able to do these tasks by myself. This shows I still have a lot to learn.
Proposed Scope of Contribution:
- Integrate COWswap
- Add a new network to ecoRouter
- Pick and fix 1/2 issues from the backlog
- Further deepen knowledge in web3 ecosystem
- Collaboration with the existing Swapr team
- Meetings: Pair Programming, Regular meeting
- PR review and low-level design decision
- Software development
- Documentation Creation and Improvement
Experience Level: 4
