I strongly believe that science is one of the best things that we can support with Dev Protocol. Science is always underfunded and often limited as a result. We all know that a helicopter recently took flight on Mars – but did you know that it relied on a variety of OSS to do so? Or that the OSS developers were relying on grants and donations from Github users? I wonder how much more could have been raised if those software projects were also on Dev.
I would love to see Dev Protocol take the first step to bridge the crypto world and the world of natural science with regards to funding. As such, I have created this thread and would like others to share relevant, science-related OSS projects and leads that the Dev Protocol team can reach out to about possible funding.
I’ll start, since I brought this up:
Pangeo is first and foremost a community promoting open, reproducible, and scalable science. This community provides documentation, develops and maintains software, and deploys computing infrastructure to make scientific research and programming easier. The Pangeo software ecosystem involves open source tools such as xarray, iris, dask, jupyter, and many other packages.
