RE: Verifiable Credentials Guide for Developer: Call for Participation

Re: @mwherman2000<> is the expectation for everyone to come up with their own versions of this guide from scratch? Can I collab with existing guide builders?

@launganik<> Thank you for asking the how do we get going question.

I'll more than likely carry the vision for the Guide forward by writing the first draft with reviews, feedback, and changes at each step. ... asking for expert help for key sections like the Data Platform Bindings subsections. Checkout for an initial outline. You can begin now to file issues documenting your input, feedback, other thoughts here: . I would love to start getting feedback asap.

Once we get some consensus on the scope and outline, we can refine the process/plan/schedule. A detailed process appears at the bottom of #206 (comment)<>

Here's a simpler version that I've also used...

@launganik<> how does that sound? Thank you for engaging early.

p.s. We're still combining this week: . I'll start working on the Guide more full-time next week (week of Sept. 13).

Thank you,
Michael Herman
