FCT: 680

Total FCT Requested
680

Start Date
2019-09-01

Completion Date
2019-10-30

Success Criteria
The grant should be considered a success if the add-in is released as specified before November.

Timelines and Milestones
Work for this grant would go from September 1st through October 30th, averaging an hour a day. Although the deliverable is straightforward, development would proceed with the following steps:

1. Excel interaction with API, writing arbitrary data to the Factom testnet.
2. Get add-in installation package funcationality.
3. Features and funtionality, like adding the control tab, hashing of data, etc.

If I cannot complete the project on time I would continue development through November unpaid. If I complete before 60 hours are finished I'll continue to add features and potentially integration with other Microsoft Office products.

Budget
The budget is $2,400 for 60 days with an average of 1 hour a day of development at $40 per hour and the August 4th FCT price of $3.50.

The hourly rate is lower than the typical development cost to reflect the fact that I am not a full time software developer and that I don't yet have a track history with Factom.

My new estimate is to complete the Excel Add-In by December 31st. This is significantly longer than my first estimate because of a combination of other obligations leaving me with less time to devote to it than I had anticipated and because the project is a bit larger scope than I had first thought.

As I mentioned in the grant I will cover any additional development time beyond the original estimate myself. In any case I apologize for the delay.
