My name is Larry i’m a web developer from the
United States i also mine Pi, my username is
LarryW, and I am the developer working on what
potentially will be a Pi app in the Pi App
network marketplace, and i’ve called my
presentation: “Adventures in Building Utility”,
because that’s what I’m attempting to
do is build a utility in what will be
the Pi network. Here is what I want to talk about
today I’m going to start out by discussing
the Pi stack and Pi apps role. Then I plan to
give a brief introduction to task bounties,
after that, I want to dive into the internals
a little bit about what the app is built on,
and then a quick demo, and after that finally I’d
like to discuss how potentially my app would
leverage what will be the Pi network. If you
read through the white paper this particular image
stands out I think it’s a really good image
and there’s a big explanation around
it, and what I’d like to touch on though.
Is the green rectangle up top is what we’re doing
we have our security circles right now, and it’s
people that we trust and potentially,
hopefully once the Pi network is live,
and we’ve reached phase three and we’ve built
out the blockchain you’re going to have
these trust circles, and this everybody else will
have trust circles, and there’ll be this huge
network of people, and you’ll be
able to easily come to consensus on
transactions because of the fact that you’ll have
just this huge network mesh of people that trust
each other. So the fact that you trust each
other it will be very easy to build consensus in,
and and validate transactions, and that’s
the basis of kind of what the blockchain
does so the fact that you have that
lends itself to having so many good things.
One of those things is you’ll have you
could have this huge marketplace of apps
and that’s what I’m going to talk about
today is the decentralized applications.
More specifically the application that
I’m working on so that’s you know where this
app would potentially sit is the in the is
in the decentralized application marketplace.
As i said earlier the potential name
of the name of my app is the task bounties
and what the idea behind the task
boundaries is that would facilitate
micro-tasks, where you know individuals that
have various skills that could put themselves
out there and people that need help with
various things could advertise or solicit.
Those people so you’d have you know the option
of looking for if you’re a person that does is,
Wants to do these micro-tasks you can look for
people that need help or you could create
the fact that you’re out there, and you
can do these types of micro tasks so someone
that’s looking from someone to you know
that needs help could the opposite way could
look for people that do micro tests,
or they could put something out there.
That says I need help with
this, and you know advertise and whatnot
And if those of us or people that are familiar
with how these Pi apps are going to work
understands that when the core team announced
the apps they said they’re going to be built
the people that you know build the apps it’s just
going to be a lot of technologies that are already
out there. So the app that I’m building you know
you know the basics of the web. So basically
what it is is it’s a web app and I utilize
dotnet asp.net in the middle you know the
the framework and on the front end um I’m using
Vue so that’s you know kind of one of it’s a
now so i use that framework on the front end and
then i utilize something called Vuetify, which is
built with Vue to give you know beautify
utilizes Vue the frontend look or
the interface looks like a material design, so
like it kind of has that app-ish type of feel.
So it’s something familiar with you know when
people are using apps that interact with
a web app so it’s it kind of gives it an
App type of feel to it.
A summary of the the frameworks that i’m
using to put together this app.
And so what I’d like to do is
kind of go through a short demo of how
the app works, and I’m gonna kind
of what I’m gonna do is. I’m gonna
first off show you the app
right so this is the app now
what it is this is the sandbox that
the Pi network team had kind of
put together for us to test and
test our apps and kind of you know.
Be able to run through and have them see
how they would look, and function in what will be
the Pi Network. So this is task bounties, and
this would be ideally what you would see when you
came onto the app is kind of a brief kind of
summary list of you know you’d save some
you know people that are looking for help
and people that are looking for work, right?
So it’s kind of basics, and you
have your menu up top that’s a home.
You know obviously mail this.
This would be the user if you are signed in so
Let’s go through quickly a couple of workflows here
what I’d like to do first off let’s go through
the workflow of actually creating a task okay. So,
if, you would like to create a task what you would
do is you hit this plus+ button here that indicates
that you want to add one of these items to
the screen. Right now creating
a test is I would be a person that I would
be looking for help right so I say, “I’m
looking for help”, right so there you go.
That there and so this would be
something that I would need is I’m gonna
potentially need an I need
help with graphic design.
Because I’m not a graphic designer.
Alright so kind of a short description is that
you know for someone to help me
create the logo for my Pi app.
And longer description.
This is an optional item is that you know
instructions to complete, and potentially
You could have a start date, and end date if you’d like. I’m going to say I need one person.
About the amount. Great. it’s going to
be a set payment. Yeah, one time task.
Graphic design. Let’s put some tags in here.
Okay, and if we’d like we can make it more
local here you can put a list of countries
regions and cities kind of an area of citie.
In this case I’m going to
say that an application is required.
and i’m going to add questions right.
Ok. And if I’d like to I can hide my
profile username all right so then I submit.
And there you go and you know it’s under
review and that’s kind of you know just a
kind of a little bit of a summary kind of a
screen there that a user would have. Okay, now
it’s another workflow then you would come back
and maybe someone that would be applying for
your task right so. Now I’m gonna pretend
that this particular task was approved
okay so i’m someone I’m gonna I’m
gonna actually apply for my own.
Task that I created so not likely but
you know this is a demo of course so this
is you would come here right and you’re signed
in and you you see these okay i want to apply.
Okay so what are some right so.
Lot popular applications here you would,
answer that question,
And there you go and submit your application. There
we go and that’s that’s pretty much you know it.
You know some of these I mean you’re
gonna be able to communicate potentially
and you get you know to get your alerts,
and everything like that when you know.
So that is the basics of how
the app would work now.
There are many ways in which something like this could potentially leverage the Pi network. I’m
I’m kind of thinking of the fact that there
are so many people out there that you could
potentially everybody has a skill you could kind
of form i guess what you’d call them
you know groups of people that would everybody
has a different skill, and you could come together
and market yourselves together as far as being able to do certain tasks.
I mean we could you know use it to somehow
reach people outside of the Pi network
to kind of like you know you would be like
together with the
people that are pioneers or you know i guess
people that are in the Pi network could
seek each other out and you would be able to
form these groups and you’d be able to get
together and you would be able to market yourself
outside of the Pi network in that manner.
You know there’s just a whole host of things
that would potentially benefit and you can
you know leverage what we have
here with this particular app.
So right now it’s kind of you to know just kind of
what I am working on and my hope is.
That you know I can continue working on something
that whatever type of governance we have.
It gets validated and it is I’m able to
put it out there on the Pi network in
the future. So that’s you know it’s kind
of a summary of what I’m working on and
Hopefully, it’s been something that
you know just listening to this and
has been beneficial to all of you.
Thank you for forlending me your time!
