My third, unexpected (for me), article of my Open diary. I am finding it more valuable than I could ever expect, opening room for positive discussion.
My Previous Articles:
- A CEO Diary #1: Utopian, the Sleeping Giant
- A CEO Diary #2: Utopian Vision. Which Problems Utopian is Trying to Solve?
Quasar and all the Utopian hype about it. Just why?
Utopian empowers open source projects by enabling them to create networks of supporters and professionals, facilitating incentives and contributor rewards.
Utopian has been doing this for 332 days. Many of these open source projects, more than 80% of them, are: Steem based applications, tools and contents.
That in fact implies, most of the open source resources and projects you are having on this blockchain have been either on-boarded by Utopian or supported for their growth in the last 332 days.
Utopian is opening bridges for developers, while also convincing project owners on opening up their work to the public, pushing them to full transparency, much necessary factor of the blockchain economy.
The more developers we bring, the more projects, the more outreach. Ultimately more value for every stake holder of this blockchain.
Specifically for Quasar https://github.com/quasarframework/quasar, this framework has 7000 stars on Github and more than 600 forks, few times more than the number of stars of the Steem blockchain. Almost 3K people on their Discord. This framework works with some of the most popular platforms and libraries out there, such as https://github.com/nodejs/node and https://github.com/vuejs/vue, making collectively more than 180K stars on Github. Quasar is usually mentioned in the second spot of the most important frameworks in the Vue ecosystem.
To put it simple, tons of devs know and work with Quasar daily.
Why you should be following and supporting @quasarframework on Steem
For the simple reason: You want developers on Steem and you want them to be freaking awesome.
Along with projects run by Byteball, the Blockchain Competence Centre of the European Commission, SteemPress and others, the Quasar framework stands out in a list of already awesome realities supported by Utopian.
Help us out opening doors to many more awesome devs.
Utopian and Quasar, what's the deal.
I can easily understand why Quasar got that much amount of stars on Github, @nothingismagick is a guy made of stardust. Not only he responded to a funny message from @gregory.latinier on their Discord, which may be perceived as "aggressive marketing" ;p , he also got in touch with the Utopian team straight away, trying to get as much info as possible about the whole thing. If that isn't sufficient good will, he also brainstormed with us around several solutions to make the collaboration Quasar+Utopian as beneficial as possible for every Steem user.
Their devs are already getting into the Utopian Discord and trying out Steem by signing up on https://signup.utopian.io. @nothingismagick himself has been writing awesome articles over his Steem account and has even started contributing.
Many plans are getting form right now, which include maximal exposure for both projects, participation to the Utopian hackathon , webinars, bounties and more.
Utopian uses Quasar in Utopian v2 https://github.com/utopian-io/v2.utopian.io and we are preparing a list of issues with bounties attached to engage the community of developers, designers and content creators around Utopian and Quasar.
