There’s a growing number of people in the Aragon ecosystem. These people organize into teams. Teams need to share data in order to get stuff done. This data is usually in the form of written documents, audio and video meetings, and code.
Every time an individual joins a team or interacts with a team there’s always the question of “what apps do you use?” This results in lots of wasted time coordinating, downloading, and setting up applications. In the best case this adds friction to effective coordination and collaboration, and in the worst case the tools don’t work and collaboration is blocked.
Every team is unique so it makes sense for teams to choose tools that are a good fit for them. At the same time, it’s important that people in the Aragon ecosystem can easily collaborate. With this in mind, it seems beneficial to adopt “standard” communications infrastructure that is free and open for anyone to use. These tools would be documented so that everyone in the Aragon ecosystem could install and use them. It would then be expected that everyone in the ecosystem understands and has access to these tools. This would greatly simply communication and collaboration across the ecosystem. Teams would still be able to adapt their workflows to what works for them, but there would also be a standard workflow to fall back on when engaging with the broader Aragon ecosystem.
