The Building of Basecamp Workshop

NEW: Read a review, check out some pictures, and hear what others are saying about a previous Building of Basecamp Workshop here.

Immerse yourself in the hectic process of concepting, designing, developing, marketing, supporting, and maintaining a web-app used by tens of thousands of people worldwide.

What will we talk about?

We'll take you behind the scenes of the development of Basecamp, our popular web-based project management tool. We'll explain our process, our mistakes, our home runs, and the lessons we've learned. Then we'll discuss how you can transfer that knowledge to your own projects.

What will you learn?

It usually takes months (or years) of development trial and error to learn what we'll show you in one day. You'll leave armed with plenty of great ideas for making your own web app succeed.

Who's it for?

If you're considering building a web app, already have one, or just want to know what it really takes to make it happen, this workshop is for you.

Some of the issues we'll be covering:








We're planning the next workshop right now

All six workshops have sold out. Sign up for our mailing list and we'll let you know when we announce the next workshop. And don't worry, we're a selfish bunch: We'll never sell, disclose, or trade your email address.

Workshop Q&A

What is "Basecamp"?

Basecamp, by 37signals, is a web-based tool that lets you manage projects (or simply ideas) and quickly create client/project extranets. It lets you and your clients (or just your own internal team) keep your conversations, ideas, schedules, to-do lists, and more in a password-protected central location. You can find out more about Basecamp by taking a tour, discovering different ways to use Basecamp, reading what other's have to say, or getting more general information (and trying it for free) at the official Basecamp site.
