This week we are beginning to implement a new “resource” into our team. This resource is called “Basecamp“. It is a resource that lets us organize our team, it helps us be more efficient and build a better robot. However, it will mostly help us run a better business for our team. Many of Basecamp’s features center around organization, and we can use this to advertise ourselves out on the big, wide internet, something we were lacking the years previous. It will help us organize our various social media accounts, and help with advertising our cause. Currently our teams are working on the various projects to which they have been assigned. This week was a business meeting, which means we assembled into our business teams. We have two teams here at Pittsford Robotics, business and building. The business teams are awards, marketing, sponsorship, and webpage design. The building teams are electrical, mechanical, and programming. Today the awards team is just getting settled and preparing to start their foray into the depths of the chairman’s award. The marketing team is organizing the sponsorship data we collected into our Basecamp account. The sponsorship team is helping the marketing team and preparing a list of benefits for supporting Pittsford Robotics. The webpage design team is writing a blog, and troubleshooting aesthetic problems with the current website.
TLDR; We started using Basecamp and it’s cool.
