Let's chat: hardware product development, collaboration, and documentation 📚


On June 11th, we held our first virtual live Q&A session. It was pretty exciting, but what's even more exciting is that this will be the first of many. As engineers ourselves, we want AllSpice to be a platform that helps engineers get their incredible hardware products to market faster. We love talking with our users and we're so happy you're talking back to us 🙂


Let's recap


For June's Q&A, we teamed up with Kaethe Henning from Alloy Product Development to have a conversation about collaboration in hardware development (try saying that three times fast). We kept the session small and cozy so we could answer everyone's questions — and we sure had plenty of them to answer 🙌


We covered a lot (stay tuned for Q&A clips popping up on our LinkedIn soon 👀) but just to give you a taste, here's what our topics included:

  • An overview of the basic development stages across HW companies, the common pitfalls at each stage, and solutions to avoid them

  • When to design in house vs. outsourcing to a development firm

  • Our favorite collaboration tools for HW teams

  • Why documentation is important and some best practices

  • Hot trends in HW development we're excited about 🔥

  • Software practices we see commonly used in HW

As always, happy developing and we hope to see you at our next event!
