You choose the tools you work with. From the operating system, to the IDE's and text editors, the choice is all yours. There are some programs and services we use for team-oriented
The tools we normally use are:
- Cloud provided services from Google and Dropbox.
- Main communication channels reside on Slack.
- We use Google Meet for conferencing, but we can use other options too.
The above are necessary, but you choose how to use them - you can install the dedicated apps, use the services in the browser, in CLI or custom UI via 3rd party apps, etc.
Some software we use - especially in the PCB manufacturing, testing and simulation pipelines - is strongly preferred, and we’ll insist on it unless you can prove you have better efficiency
elsewhere or good reasons not to use it. We're always on the lookout for new hardware and software tools to aid us in our work, and we believe in using the best tool for the task, so if you like to work with a specific toolset, let us know about it - we're interested in your workflow.
We can provide you with a laptop - either preconfigured, or you can configure it yourself to your preference. You’re welcome to bring your own device if you so prefer.
We have a state-of-the-art electronics development lab that you’re welcome to use. If you need a device that’s not currently available, and its function is not replicated by any of
the available hardware, we’ll act depending on the individual case - purchase the necessary hardware, lend it, or delegate this particular task to one of our trusted local partners.
