Budget Category: Sia.tech Maintenance

The Sia.tech is extremely out of date and the https://sia.tech/about page is downright misleading. To get the website back up to date in a timely manner I would propose that the Sia Foundation immediately contract with a web development company. This should be an on-going contract paid monthly; hence this would be a monthly budgeting item for however much the contract costs.

I saw there was some discussion on the Sia discord about creating a budget for a professional web development company to make the https://sia.tech website “look as amazing as possible”. Just wanted to bump this proposal to see if we can get some discussion started here on this subject.

Hi there!

Yes this is top of mind for us as well.

We’re currently in the process of hiring a UI developer to help maintain sia.tech as well as the Sia-UI electron app. If anyone in the community has recommendations or referrals, we’re all ears!

In the meantime, I’ve made a small MR here (https://gitlab.com/NebulousLabs/sia.tech/-/merge_requests/77) just to update some of the Foundation roles.

Internally the goal is to have a new site available sometime Q2/Q3 this year.

Love to hear it (:

Good to see the Foundation hiring a UI dev this early(though they should probably move sia-ui away from electron(but that’s a convo for another day)).
