A Glimpse Into 37 Signals’ Methodology

Posted Wednesday, May 11th, 2005 at 08:55 PM

A brief write up on their blog, Signal vs. Noise on the development of their new web app, Backpack.

Daniel got a chance to sit in a session by one of the 37 Signals developers at Web Design World in San Francisco earlier this year, and told me about their un-orthodox philosophy of jumping right into the development phase of web design. Forget the laborious weeks and months of planning and strategy–rather, start building the site right away and strategize from what you learn from the revisions.

Interesting. And effective considering the quality of their end products, Backpack, Basecamp, and Tada List.

We use Basecamp here at CityTeam, and it’s helped us get organized with our projects.
