In 2020, we introduced The Open Alliance. We intentionally kept The Open Alliance small so we could learn how to walk before we ran. After two seasons of success and sharing, it’s time to take #openalliance to the next level.
Effective immediately, any team can be an #openalliance member.
We’ve set up a Github where we’ll host open source software, projects, and documentation.
Of course, we still encourage each #openalliance to create a build thread here on CD.
Don’t keep secrets
Sharing and learning is our competitive advantage, not secrets.
Don’t withold “that one detail” that makes an idea or mechanism work. If you share it, share it all.
Try to update 1 or more times per week.
Include analysis and notes
Include thoughts on what went well and what did not.
Use a platform that is conducive to asking and answering questions.
We recommend making official update posts in your build thread on ChiefDelphi and cross-posting to Discord for further discussion.
Try to share important information, or the results of important discussions, on both platforms.
Post lots of pictures and videos.
People love to look at pictures and videos
A picture really is worth 1000 words.
Open CAD and code are encouraged but not required.
Include the bad with the good.
We want a complete picture, not a highlight reel.
Posting the bad helps everyone learn.
