    DevEx, Free TON, Meetup

    DevOps subgovernance representative at the DeVex meetup — discussed setting up a “one-click” development environment. Focused on the ZKP contest and explained why it is outside of Digital SG’s competence.

    DevOps Contest: One-Click Development Environment Setup

    Senya Ostrovsky, a representative of the DevOps subgovernance, begins by discussing a request they received to set up a “one button click” development environment. Alex Novikov claims that TON Dev was originally conceived as a one-click development tool. After a long discussion, the participants came to a consensus that the contest should be held, however, no specific proposals were made to resolve the problem.

    ZKP Contest

    ZKP (Zero-Knowledge Voting Protocol Implementation) contest is a stage of the voting contest using ZKP technology. The main problem is that there are two contradictory requirements: voters must register officially, but the secrecy of the vote must be respected. Therefore, there is a need for the mechanics described in one of the articles attached to the contest: how to make voting anonymous, but at the same time make the correct vote count. The criteria specified in the article should also apply to paper voting.

    • Why aren’t we running this contest at Digital SG?

    It would probably be too time-consuming for them. The number of contests for ZKP is insignificant in the DevEx subgovernment, so why not hold one? 

    Ivan believes that the location does not matter, the only difference is the subsidy. It has nothing to do with specialists. 

    Pavel partially agrees with Ivan, but there is a need for professionals who understand what is going on. For this reason, DevEx was chosen to conduct this contest.  

    Alex believes that because of organizational issues, it is important that the jury is from the same subgovernance where the contest is held.

    Rewards for great contributors

    In addition to the main rewards, there is the possibility of distributing additional ones. Pavel Prigolovko suggests encouraging active participants for their great contribution to the community.
