Currently it is quite hard to find Neos Agencies which sometimes hinders pro-neos decisions by customers. A list of all Neos Agencies may help convince customers to start using Neos. This list should look professional and support printing.
We @sitegeist could push this topic to get an initial version online. If we agree to this RFC we will take care to implement this.
Please give feedback what points we missed but always keep in mind that this is a first version and will evolve in the future.
The following properties could be a starting point for such a list:
- Description (200 Chars)
- Phone / Mail
- Country / City
- Neos References (all references on neos.io handed in by this agency)
- Neos Support (i suggest to start with values we already have and that we do’nt need to discuss)
- Conference Sponsoring (1 -> 5: Premium, last and next conference apply)
- Neos-Funding (1:Bronze -> 5: Diamond)
- Team Members
- … we may decide later on additional criteria like sprint-hosting
- Neos Services (checkboxes)
- Full Service (Consultation, Ui, SEO, Support …)
- Website Development (custom websites with neos, re´rerences on neos-io are mandatory)
- Package Development (third party packages, neos-packages on packagist are mandatory)
- Core Development (contribute to the core, core-devs are mandatory)
To decide on the ordering i suggest to create a support-score by multiplying all values from the Neos support section + 1. That rule avoids multiplication by zero if an agency does not provide support in one specific category but in others.
Phase 2 …
Filtering, Pagination and additional Properties etc. can be implemented in later phases once we consider the list too long.
