The VIPO Program

Open Source Project owners have a hard time finding contributors to their projects, nor can they perform all the functions necessary for a project to become a success. Project Owners aren’t bug hunters, marketers or copywriters, nor should they be.

In an aim to make these FREE services provided by Utopian.io and its community of global talent easier to access, we’ve created the Very Important Project Owners Club. Members of the VIPO Club get exclusive access to a growing set of tools, services and professionals to aid their efforts on Utopian.io.

We received dozens of applications for membership in the VIPO and the number is growing. Seeing project owners engage with our Community Managers and with each other on Discord is a sign that this service is more than necessary in the Open Source ecosystem.

Translations Category Developments

The DaVinci collaboration

Utopian.io has collaborated with the DaVinci initiative on Steem to support the translation of Open Source projects. We have put up a new front-end specifically for this, which can be found at https://davinci.utopian.io. This last week, we also implemented the back-end features to support the site.

A lot of work went into creating quality questionnaires and defining the guidelines and policies for the translations workflow. In the last week, the Utopian.io core team worked closely with the DaVinci initiative to finalize the collaboration the framework in which this program will work.

Welcome @rosatravels and @jmromero!

We have a new community manager for the Translations category, @rosatravels, who is now working in liason with the DaVinci initiative. Together with @jmromero will be interacting with the Utopian.io community and ensuring smooth operations in the Translations category.

Open Source Radio Show

The Open Source Radio Show has been going smoothly and many valuable insights were shared over the last two weeks. Due to its success and a need for more interaction within it, we have decided to expand it to 2 hours, up from the original 1 hour timeframe.

To catch up with what's happening, read the last pre-show announcement.

You have a minor misspelling in the following sentence:

We have a new community manager for the Translations category, @rosatravels, who is now working in liason with the DaVinci initiative.
It should be liaison instead of liason.

Everything is moving so fast that we hardly keep up with you guys! Thanks for all the great efforts. I have applied as a Translator for Utopian + DaVinci. We have waited for a long time for the reopening of the translation category and I feel confident that this time it will work perfectly ;)

Although there may be lots of changes and updates, we try to keep everyone updated with the regular posts published during the week.
