Announcing the first “The Basecamp Way To Work” workshop

Learn how we do this!

For years people have asked us how we work at Basecamp. We’ve shared our business and development philosophies in Getting Real, REWORK, and REMOTE, but we’ve never lifted the veil on our unusual work methods.

What does our day-to-day look like? How do we organize and manage work? How do we communicate across the company? How do teams coordinate? How do we gather ideas, consider feedback, break work into digestible chunks, build, and deliver?

This year we’re going to launch a new live-in-person workshop series called “How We Work”. But before that, we’re going to hold a pilot workshop — a test run — on Thursday, January 28th. The pilot workshop will run for 3 hours. This will be a back and forth — showing, questions, sharing, questions. We’ll set the tone, but the audience will determine the direction.

We’ll share everything behind the scenes. We’ll show you how we use Basecamp to run Basecamp. Everything will be exposed. After this workshop you’ll have a new perspective on how people can work together, how and when to communicate this way vs that way, and how keeping everything together in one place is the secret to a few small teams making some really big things.

None of this has been shared in an interactive setting like this before. The workshop will be held in the theater in our headquarters in Chicago, IL. Only 25 seats will be available, so don’t miss out: Buy your ticket here.

We look forward to seeing you on the 28th.

UPDATE: The event has sold out. The plan is to do these often, and eventually make this material available online for anyone to watch. Stay tuned to our Twitter feed at for announcements of future events.
