As the growth team is looking to support adoption among developers in local communities, we face a few key issues. I’m interested in all your thoughts, answers, feedback, etc. on each of the following items, many thanks!
Determining the best single place or resource that is easy to remember and quickly explains the value of Blockstack to a fresh room and allows them to get going (i.e. what’s that one link people should remember and go to) - open to suggestions for where this place is at the moment or if we were to create it, what it would/should contain.
Noting some steep onboarding steps for new users, especially in the context of a few hour workshop or 1 day hackathon, what are short-term solutions or workarounds for the initial setup to begin building. From my understanding and what we faced in Berlin, there was some waiting that needed to be done, they needed to get BTC, and something they had to pay for. How can we smooth this out for people trying to get up and hacking fast at an event? Can we create ready-made accounts that can be claimed on the go? Can we make this free to them as well? In Berlin we reimbursed the tickets for those in the building but that isn’t feasible at other people’s events.
What are other known bottlenecks you’re seeing with developers getting started that we should know about and prepare Evangelists for?
What content needs to be developed for those just getting started beyond what we offer now?
Thanks for any insights you have as former first timers getting going with Blockstack, we want to do a great job of packaging something to make getting started quickly a real pleasure!
