We need to be able to collaborate effectively if we are to realize our vision of removing inequality by production of knowledge.
Effective communication between all team members helps develop a sense of belonging, we watch each others back and build a momentum towards what we set out to achieve.
We use a combination of async and real-time interaction to span multiple timezones and priorities.
We use IRC & JITSI
We make good use of real-time sync up mode
- for all project meetings
- to discuss an important issue among ourselves (JITSI for audio, video and screen sharing).
- to jointly troubleshoot or debug an issue (#strikr IRC channel).
We use E-mail
Email based communication using a mailing list among free software community members provides unparalleled advantages.
It is the most efficient way to share thoughts without any limitation at any time from any location at your own convenience.
- async (mode)
- content length not limited
- broadcast oriented
- add tags in subject line
- filter on tags, strings
We use one mailing list for ALL projects.
This may seem unusual, however, we value ambient awareness in community powered software engineering.
Given our unique approach to engineering software, all project members are updated with the development happening in different projects. Everyone is welcome to chime-in, share their perspective and also negotiate changes that may be required for a particular functionality to be effectively realized. With smart usage of [tags] in subject line, it is easy to filter content.
Folks who are curious or are interfacing multiple modules will have all the updates and can freely participate in any of the discussions.
We help each other succeed.
