Gaming Integration Guidelines
Gaming integrations help facilitate the adoption of Syntropy technology by allowing gamers and hosting services to spin-up secure and performance-optimized experiences more easily and quickly. https://github.com/SyntropyNet/syntropy-gaming-integrations
For this task, you will be writing a tutorial for a blog post. The tutorial has to be written in clear and concise English.
It has to be uploaded to medium.com and dev.to. If you wish, you can also upload it to your blog or other sites of your choice (e.g. Hacker News, Hacker Noon, Reddit, etc.).
Imagine that you are a developer trying to achieve the same result you've just done by completing the main task. Write a tutorial for him/her. Make sure to include all major steps, code snippets, screenshots, and whatever information you deem necessary.
You don't have to detail steps that are highly specific to other tools (e.g. setting up Digital Ocean Droplet). Assume that your reader has some experience in using the tools that you use in your tutorial. However, if it's something more complicated, please include a link to a relevant tutorial. Use common sense and try to strike the right balance. Found something to be more difficult than you expected? You probably read a tutorial on that. Put the link in your own tutorial.
A tutorial is not readme!
Make sure to include a brief introduction of what is the end goal of the tutorial. Also, have a conclusion. Ideally, think about how this can help the average developer. How does this come into play in real-world scenarios, and how do you envision Syntropy Stack being used in these applications?
It's imperative to keep in mind that the broader audience might be unaware of Syntropy Stack. When writing a tutorial, always include a description of what Syntropy Stack is. You can use and expand the description below, but try to explain it in your own words.
Syntropy Stack is a selection of applications and tools that enables you to set up secure connectivity across all endpoints quickly. You can connect any service and device running on a cloud, on-premise, and edge infrastructure. If you need to connect thousands of endpoints, you can do so using Syntropy software agent in combination with container-orchestration systems like Kubernetes and configuration tools like Ansible.
If you see fit, try to explain why you use Syntropy Stack to do one thing or another in a tutorial.
Writing a tutorial is a lot easier while you are in the process of doing the main task. That's why we usually make this bonus task required to be completed together with your main task.
Once you are done with the tutorial, it has to be approved by your Group Lead.
Also, feel free to share it wherever you like!
Video/Screen Recording Guidelines
For this task, you will be creating a screen recording. We recommend using Loom, but you can choose any software you like.
If you've also written a tutorial, make sure to attach this recording to that publication. If not, make sure to upload it to your chosen platform (e.g. Twitter, Youtube, dev.to). One upload is required, but feel free to upload it to more than one platform.
Imagine that you are a developer trying to achieve the same result you've just done by completing the main task. Make a screen recording for him/her. Make sure to include all major steps and whatever information you deem necessary.
English voiceover describing your workflow is required. In some special cases, voiceover might be replaced with subtitles or captions, but you have to consult us beforehand. If you can't record a voiceover for any reason, you can collaborate with another person.
In the projects sheet, you will see the USD worth of compensation for each completed project. The compensation is based on the difficulty of the project and the time required to complete it. Payments will be made in an equivalent amount of $NOIA tokens to the compensation's USD value. The exact amount of tokens is calculated at the very moment we send you the rewards. When we distribute tokens depends on the gas price, but we do that as soon as possible after the task is marked as completed. You will be eligible for compensation only after the project is completed, and the responsible person validates it. Once it's done, please send the wallet address to which you wish to receive your tokens.
We have determined how many people are required to complete each project. If you believe that the number is too low or too high, you can shoot us a message, and we will reevaluate. However, keep in mind that the compensation pool is a fixed amount per challenge.
In the challenges sheet, you will find a due date for each project and task. Please stay within deadlines. Deadlines can be discussed and reevaluated before you commit to the project. Some projects might be missing deadlines, but this does not mean that there is no deadline. In such cases, we will agree on a deadline before you commit to the project. If you feel that you won't be able to finish the project by the deadline, let us know beforehand. In that case, you can find someone from the community to help you, or we can find someone. Each case is different, so most importantly, communicate.
