Community Developer Council

Note: This page was archived June 22, 2022.


The Community Developers Council (CDC) is a representative group of Rally staff, creators, developers, and community members whose role is to:

  • Grow and support the verified developer community with programming and grants

  • Support the Rally team and Dev ecosystem as we grow our app directory

  • Evangelize the ecosystem

  • Engage with the Rally team as APIs and other developer resources are created with the end goal of informing the direction and success of new resources

  • Support the developer ecosystem with grants, rewards and programming, drawing from a budget of 1M RLY per quarter

To begin, the council will meet on a weekly basis, and then as the group gets established, regular meetings will occur bi-weekly. The CDC is compensated at a rate of $1400 $RLY each month. All in, the expected average weekly commitment is up to ~5 hrs / week. (Any members already compensated by Rally will not be compensated for council participation.)

The council is intentionally diverse in make-up, and will represent the gender, ethnic and professional diversity of the creative community. It is composed of 7 members: 1 Rally staff, 1 Ambassador, and a community elected mix of 3 Community Developers and 1 advisors drawn from staff, creators, and the broader community.

The term for a CDC member is 1 year, and can be renewed if reelected.
