The Graph Academy is all about collaborating. If you like to contribute to our joint endeavor of building a universal knowledge base for The Graph, you’re more than welcome to do so.

Current RFPs

For a list of our current RFPs and how you can get involved, have a look at the following.

Description: Introduction to indexing and onboarding course for those interested in becoming Indexers which includes best practices for Indexers (infrastructure, troubleshooting, syncing, etc.)

Skills: Technical Writing, Indexer Operator, Devops

Bounty Size: $2,500

RFP Category: INDEXER COMMUNITY

Details

Indexers in The Graph Network play a key role in securing the network and in providing accurate data that powers Web3. At the same time, the entry barriers for becoming an Indexer (both economically and technically) are high. For this reason, it is of central importance to develop resources that help interested individuals in getting started as Indexers.

Profile
The Graph Academy is seeking an experienced Indexer within The Graph Network to develop an Indexer Onboarding Course to help new Indexers in getting started.

RFP Requirements
It is intended that the onboarding course is broken up into parts which take would-be Indexers step-by-step through the journey of setting up the infrastructure for launching an Indexer. The course should cover all aspects of successfully running an Indexer node from start to finish (choosing infrastructure & setup, deploying node, maintenance, performance improvements, subgraph selection, and network interactions [POI, allocation management, reward collection & cost modelling].

Deliverables

Onboarding Course broken up into parts

Short Quizzes at the end of each part (Multiple Choice, Yes/No, etc.)

MVP: Initial document (addressed content to be agreed upon) for quality assessment by The Graph Foundation and The Graph Academy

It is expected that the work you do in collaboration with The Grant Foundation and The Graph Academy under the scope of this grant will be open source and public for the ecosystem. We believe that the ecosystem as a whole is better than its parts and encourage all network participants to build in public.

Description: Introduction to subgraph development and onboarding course for those interested in developing a subgraph which includes best practices for developers

Skills: Technical Writing, Subgraph Developer

Bounty Size: $2,500

RFP Category: Subgraph Development

Details

Subgraph developers use The Graph to query data that is stored on a blockchain and play a critical part in securing the functionality of decentralized applications. To empower developers in creating a radically better Internet, it is critical to provide interested developers resources helping them in getting started.

Profile
The Graph Academy is seeking an experienced subgraph developer within The Graph Network to create a Subgraph Development Course to help new developers in getting started.

RFP Requirements
It is intended that the onboarding course is broken up into parts which take would-be developers step-by-step through the journey of deploying subgraphs from start to finish (creating subgraph manifest, deploying subgraphs locally / Hosted Service / Studio, as well as defining a subgraph.

Deliverables
Onboarding Course broken up into parts
Short Quizzes at the end of each part (Multiple Choice, Yes/No, etc.)

MVP: Initial document (addressed content to be agreed upon) for quality assessment by The Graph Foundation and The Graph Academy

It is expected that the work you do in collaboration with The Grant Foundation and The Graph Academy under the scope of this grant will be open source and public for the ecosystem.

Our Vision.

The Graph Academy is a community-driven initiative that was built by members of the The Graph community. The academy is a strategic initiative that seeks to help members of the community to accelerate their knowledge about The Graph. These are the goals we have in mind with establishing the academy:

  • Provide a seamless onboarding experience for new community members

  • Help new members to quickly familiarize themselves with The Graph
  • Provide helpful tools such as calculators to the community
  • Accelerate the community’s knowledge of The Graph Protocol
  • Reduce support inquiries sent to the core devs considerably
  • Becoming an outlet for documentation
  • Building a platform for community members that want to contribute to a universal knowledge base about Eco

How you can contribute:

If you have a passion for helping others understand complex subjects and if you would love to spread the word about Eco, you’d be a great fit as a collaborator to the Eco Academy.
