Well, in contrast to other educational resources, we in ReUse Inc don’t believe in training through artificial examples and trying to remember something that is not important.
Instead of that, we offer training and education using real production problems and efforts.
It doesn’t matter how skilled you are and how much education you received earlier – just try your best in common real world qualification prove.
Don’t worry if you don’t know some complicated matters or specific technical details.
Start with some simple tasks and progress to really complex ones, including planning, sales, estimates and even not clearly defined research studies as well as you start to get higher qualification.
As you progress, it depends only on your efforts, basic skills of understanding common terms and time investment to become an expert in almost any area of work.
If you are already well trained – just try yourself in complex projects and prove it.
Here are some details on our new ReUse Inc HQ blog.
It is a base of our operations and all major events will be enlisted there, as well as in this blog and other resources (social media and GitHub ReUse project) to ensure data integrity and availability.
All trusted participants are allowed to add materials to this blog and it will have links to all major informational resources.
Once you apply to ReUse Inc, you are welcome to contribute to our surveys that are an integrated part of planning process.
As far as general principles of ReUse Inc are defined, we decided to start a appliance procedure.
So in order to contribute to ReUse Inc you basically need just a Google account and mailbox to get feedback and communicate – if you still don’t have it, just create a new one, it is free.
Once you got that, just fill our simple appliance form (requires Google account) and you are in.
After your approval you will get access to our discussions classrooms, events lists, documentation sites and blogging community platforms resources.
From this point you are able to contribute and all your participation in projects will be recorded and saved.
Since in ReUse Inc we are talking about personal progress and efficient time use, all your progress and work must be saved and clarified.
Once it is done and maintained – no one can argue with your efforts and participation in project.
Moreover, all data is supported with advertisement platform, so you generate some amount of value just by reporting your progress and documenting your work.
That’s why every participant is provided with ads included personal blog, where he tracks all his efforts or discuss some details with external community.
All stats data are as usual shared and available and revenues from every sources are collected to the common total value pool and distributed between every contributers.
The history of your progress is stored also in order to track the progress and plan everything efficiently.
Since every collaborative effort in ReUse Inc is important, every participant is added to the special Hall of Fame along with their personal progress blogs and stats for the history and probably next generations.
This is a symbol of contribution of every employee and its reputation mark.
These details are stored in duplicated formats and will be available for your job resume or CV for example.
Moreover all your progress and contribution is saved in documentation and archives, so you can use it as your portfolio or qualification prove.
To make the ReUse Inc growth stable and motivated there is a need for some fees or taxes to help administer it.
As a general rule, a small amount of value about 1% tax is dedicated to help manage and ensure the overall project growth.
Also there are some projects that are used by others in internal operations – like frameworks or internal productivity tools. There are also some basic quality control, security, management and compliance activities that require some support in order to function properly.
That’s why all gained value from specific project is accounted with 30% going for total value pool and 70% going to the project value pool.
Total value pool is distributed among all contributors, and project pool is distributed between project participants.
All this number values are specified and fixed for an accounting period to make things clear. They change rarely and the history of changes is saved for efficiency as well as details for accounting and planning.
So in ReUse Inc there are no offices or HQ sites, that’s why we will need some sort of ecosystem to coordinate and plan activities.
Just in the beginning we don’t have any investments and external resources, so let’s get to the basics.
Every applied volunteer or contributor as well as project will have a special blog, where he will report all his progress and describe results.
Along with that there will be an advertisement platform attached to every blog, so any activities by default will generate a tiny amount of value from advertisement that will get into the total value pool.
Moreover all documentation sites will get ads attached to it.
All the ads revenue will get to the total value pool and then will be shared between all participants.
Since every platform may not be stable enough, then a multi-platform resources will be required with duplicating data on progress and stats – we will use Google docs and apps services, Microsoft development services / tools, probably Amazon and others at the same time.
In general ReUse Inc is just a non-profit structure, focused mainly in training of employees qualifications. But in order to grow and involve high qualified participants there is a need for some real values income.
So in ReUse Inc what are the base sources of value, that we are going to convert our products to ?
Basically it is every point where we can convert it :
- Sales of applications
- Add-on’s sales
- Advertisements in apps
- In app purchases
- Internet sites
- Advertisements in our ecosystem
- Employees development progress
- Employees portfolios
- Documentation sites
- Source code sales
- Maintenance and support
- Donations for open source apps and tools
- Investments to speed the development in specific areas
So let’s get to rewards and profits in ReUse Inc for every collaborator.
Initially volunteers are training on open source projects, available freely to the community.
For a successful completion of work items they get special Karma points, that are not used in value shares – this is an indicator of employee getting trained and ready for expert works for some real reward.
Once a participant get a specified amount of Karma points limit, he is automatically promoted from to volunteer to contributor with the ability to involve in valued areas that require approved qualification.
When a participant is contributing to the valued areas they get a share points – Creds.
This Creds are accounted for share distribution in accounting periods and associate value share part.
So let’s define some clear rates in ReUse Inc to share the value in case if everything will work fine.
At first there will be only promoters and coders, that’s why we’ll start with them.
As a basis we will operate with basic hours related amounts of work with average qualified efficiency.
So to rate software specialists who produce code lets define as a unit of work just a standard “screen/page” of ready to use code (without comments), provided that code is distributed normally (let’s say it is ~ a standard Word page with 11 font with no special empty spaces).
To rate a promoters we will operate with 1000 unique users clicks to the promoted resource, that is conversed to purchases and advertisement with about 1-3% efficiency.
An average coder will create a page of code for about 2-3 hours of work.
A common standard link gives you about 20-30 unique clicks, so a promoter will need to place 30-50 links to get 1000 clicks, that will take about the same amount of time.
